Grant Amy


This is the saddest, but in my opinion the most beautiful song on the album. 

THIS SONG IS CAPOED AT 2ND FRET.
All chords are named as if the capo was the nut.
Sign ! means strum upwards.

G		Cadd9


Verse:
G           D   Dsus4              C         C*       Cadd9
  Who knew love        would come walkin' through my door
            C        C         D   G
  Turn the light on somewhere down   inside   

G            D      Dsus4  C         C*    Cadd9
  Give me a feeling       I'd never had before
            C
  It was a long wait
         C      D           G
  it was   just   the wrong   time


Bridge:
!Em                   C
    But I hope you'll   hold me now
Em             C2
    somewhere within
!Em                C
    And when you think about
C                    C   D 
    what might have been


Chorus:
G     Cadd9
  Cry        a river
G       Cadd9
  Flood        the sea
G        D    C2   G
  Cry a river over   me
G      Cadd9
  Take       the bitter
G      Cadd9
  With       the sweet
G            D    C2   G
  And cry a river over   me


(Repeat intro)


Verse:
G                D     Dsus4         C  C*           Cadd9
  And how do you argue       with a feeling in your bones
             C        C         D    G
  'bout what is and what isn't meant   to be
G                  D
  Some things you live with
C               C*          Cadd9
  And you never    let it show
            C
  Like the pain I felt
       C     D          G
  The day I watched you   leave


Bridge:
!Em                   C
    But I hope you'll   think of me
Em               C2
    When tender winds blow
!Em              C
    Sit on the shores of love
C                    C   D
    And just let it go



(Repeat Chorus)
