INTRO:
C Cadd4   C Cadd4
C Cadd4   C Cadd4
 
VERSE:
           C               Cadd4            C               Cadd4
There's a shoebox full of letters bound up neatly with some twine
      C              Cadd4            C               Cadd4
Each one was like a diamond, now the jewel is lost to time.
 
      Am             G
My reward is in the knowing
        F             G                  C   Cadd4  C Cadd4
That I held it in my hands for a little while
 
      G                      C                 F
What else are there but the treasures in your heart?
 
           G
Something Tamed
           C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
Something Wild
 
 
VERSE:
           C                  Cadd4             C                 Cadd4
For every time that I've been foolish when I'd wish that I'd been wise
     C         Cadd4               C                Cadd4
The power of regret still gets me right between the eyes.
 
         Am              G
And sometimes I want to weep
      F               G                  C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
With nothing but the tears of a little child
 
      G                      C               F
What else are there but the lessons in your heart?
 
           G
Something Tamed
           C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
Something Wild
 
 
VERSE:
          C            Cadd4          C             Cadd4
Here's a map I've memorized of everywhere I've ever been.
         C           Cadd4                C           Cadd4
And the faces of everyone I've loved and left to try again
 
                Am                  G
I couldn't make out what they were saying
       F               G                C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
So instead I listened hard to what's inside
 
      G                     C                 F
What else is there but the voice inside your heart?
 
           G
Something tamed
           C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
Something wild
 
Em  F  Em  F G
 
 
 
VERSE:
      C              Cadd4             C             Cadd4
Some nights I'm woken up by something stirring in my chest
        C              Cadd4          C               Cadd4
It's a feeling I've no name for it's hard to catch my breath
 
             Am                 G
I'm staring down the great big lonesome
        F                 G            C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
As I'm listening for the dwindling of time
 
      G                      C              F
What else are there but the echoes in your heart?
 
           G
Something tamed
           C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
something wild
 
 
VERSE:
        C                Cadd4           C                 Cadd4
So the things that matter to me now are different from the past
        C           Cadd4             C           Cadd4
I care less about arriving than just being in the path
 
         Am                  G
Of some light carved out of nothing
     F                    G              C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
The way it feels when the universe has smiled
 
      G                      C               F
What else are there but the beating of your heart?
 
           G
Something tamed
           C  Cadd4  C Cadd4
Something wild
 
 
VERSE:
             C              Cadd4                C            Cadd4
There's the shoebox full of letters there's the map I won't forget
     C             Cadd4            C              Cadd4
The voices and the lessons and the signals that connect us
 
     Am            G
Manifested to the spirit
          F                  G     C         Cadd4  C Cadd4
Way deep down where it goes unseen by the eye
 
      G                     C                F    G
What else is there but the love inside your heart?
      G           C            F      G
To a life like a firework's to a spark
 
G          C                F
Over and above you in it's arc
 
           G
Something Tamed
           C  Cadd4
Something Wild
