Guitar chords with lyrics

Intro:

D



Verse :
           D
We went back to the shore

For the crash of the waves
              G
I love that sound and the curious comfort we found in each other
   A
Just like we did back in the day
           D
And the crackling clouds
         A/C#
Of a storm out at sea
                G
And you broke me down just by leaning a little bit closer to me
     A
And yet still somehow leaning away
Pre-Chorus:
       Bm   G
Well nobody told me
           D  A
Just how badly I'd grieve
             Bm
That I'd dig through my past
            G
That I'd keep looking back
     D         A
To find out who I wanted to be

Chorus:
 D
Have I forgotten
    A
How I let myself feel?
      G
How the slightest inflections
      A
Were like cuts that don't heal?
   D
And don't be mistaken
      A
That was true
I believe
    G
I was something
I swear it
     A          D
Before life got the better of me
Interlude:
D




Verse :
             D
I think I know how you felt
           A/C#
I didn't know how to leave
             G
But looking back it was easy to think you'd be better off
     A
But I shouldn't have left you that way
           D
Without saying it right
         A/C#
Or even saying it wrong
              Bm
I just moved on, ripped you out of my chest

And I picked up and left
  A/C#           A
And just like a ghost I was gone

Pre-Chorus:
       Bm  G
Well nobody told me
             D  A
Come on, kid, take your time
           Bm
Don't go rushing too fast
             G
'Cause if you lose your path
   D          A
It's gonna be so hard to find

Chorus:
 D
Have I forgotten
    A
How I let myself feel?
      G
How the slightest inflections
      A
Were like cuts that don't heal?
   D
And don't be mistaken
      A
That was true
I believe
G
I was something
I swear it
     A
Before life got the better of me

Bridge:
F#m    G
Life is hard
     Bm        A
Just a series of battle scars
          F#m
From some fights we won
          G
And some fights we lost
   Bm            A
In a war that we never signed on for
Bm          G
We keep holding our heads high
Bm            A
Or hold each other and just cry
       G
And nobody's wrong

And no lines are drawn
        Gm
And everyone's here

And nobody's gone

Chorus:
    D      A/C#
I was something
I swear it
    Bm
Before life got the better
     G
Before life got the better
    A
Before life got the better of me

Outro:
G  A  Bm  D
