But take your(G) time, think a(D) lot, why think of(C) everything you’ve(Am7) got

For you will(G) still be here to(Em)morrow, but your(D) dreams may(G) not(C/G)

All the (G)times that I’ve (Bm)cried, keeping (C)all the things I (Am7)knew inside

(Stay, stay, stay)

It’s (G)hard, but it’s (Em)harder to (Am)ignore it(Am)(Am7)(D)

(Why must you go and make …)

If they were(G) right, I’d (Bm)agree, but it’s (C)them they know, not (Am7)me
