                [Intro]

[Verse 1]
D                  Bm
Daybreak, a lovely morning
              A     Cm               Bm
A chance for heaven like the dawn of time
    D                Bm
But no, when my eyes open
         A                 C           Bm
I see a mountain; I see a long uphill climb
 
Em              G  A
And even though I know
   Em             G      A
It all begins by letting go
A    Bm A    G
Still   I resist
Bm    A    G
Still I resist
 
 
[Verse 2]
         D                    Bm
Must be crazy, think I'm Joe Frazier
               A        C          Bm
Fighting each moment as if I could win
D                           Bm
Big surprise, where does it get me
              A       C                  Bm
Same old frustration same old place I've always been
 
Em           G       A
In books of truth I read
Em                   G      A
What life brings is what I need
A    Bm A    G
Still   I resist
Bm    A    G
Still I resist
 
 
[Chorus]
Bm    A         G
Ooh, what I've missed
C
The wind moves the night air
     C                           Bm
The leaves fall, they don't care why
   C
I feel that, I get it
C                      E    F#
So why don't I let it fly, fly
 
    Bm          F#m
But me, I got opinions
         Em                   F#m
I got to nail it, nail it all down
         Bm                          F#m
It's no good; it's like nailing down water
           Em                     A
Life is a liquid rolling through town
         D
Through town
 
[Solo]
D   Bm   A   C   Bm
D   Bm   A   C   Bm
 
 
[Bridge]
Em          G          A
I'm just a frightened boy
    Em                 G       A
And when it's time to take my joy
A    Bm A    G
Still   I resist
Bm    A    G
Still I resist
 
 
[Chorus]
Bm    A         G
Ooh, what I've missed
C
The wind moves the night air
C                                Bm
The leaves fall, they don't care why
Bm
But I care why, I care
C
I know that, I get it
C                       E
It's so hard to let it fly
              F#
And let it go by
 
      Bm                           F#m
Yeah, me and all those brilliant opinions
                 Em                             F#m
Always having to nail it, nail every damn thing down
        Bm                         F#m
It's no good; wanna put down this hammer
           Bm                 F#m
Love is a liquid and I wanna drown
 
 
[Outro]
     Bm              F#m
Oh, please, let me exhale now
          Em                            A
And if I fail now at least I'll know I tried
   D    D D
I tried
