How To Play

Capo:1st fret

Em7 D/F# G (G) x4
 
Em7 D/F#      G
I   should've done something
 Em7  D/F# G
Again I    did nothing
Em7     D/F# G       Em7 D/F# G
Watched us   separate
Em7  D/F#   G
What should I do now
Em7 D/F# G
Run and  chase you down?
Em7 D/F#  G       Em7 D/F# G
I   can't hesitate
 
                       C                 D
'Cause all I wanted to say was something real
                  C             D
All I want you to know is how I feel 
                C           D
All I wanted to give was my heart
        Am         C      D
But I'm stuck here at the start 
 
 
            G         D/F#           Em7    Cadd9
It's on the tip of my tongue but I'm still afraid 
              G           D/F#        Em7        Cadd9
Sometimes the only things words do is get in the way
              G       D/F#           Em7        Cadd9
Sometimes the easiest things are the hardest to say 
    G               D/F#      Em7        Cadd9
But I don't want to lose you, drive you away 
G                D/F#        Em7         Cadd9
Don't want to confuse you, I need you to stay
G             D/F#        Em7       Cadd9
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say
G             D/F#        Em7   Cadd9 Em7 D/F# G Em7 D/F# G
Only wish you knew what I wanted to  say 
 
 
Em7 D/F#  G
My  hands are shaking 
Em7 D/F#  G
I'm yours for the taking 
Em7   D/F# G       Em7 D/F# G
Don't you  hesitate
Em7    D/F# G
Please just do one thing 
Em7 D/F#  G
One small sign, something
Em7   D/F# G           Em7 D/F# G
Let's jump off the edge 
 
                         C                D
'Cause all I want you to say is something real
                C               D
All I wanted to know is how you feel
                  C            D
All I want you to give is your heart
          Am         C      D
But we're stuck here at the start 
 
 
            G         D/F#           Em7    Cadd9
It's on the tip of my tongue but I'm still afraid 
              G           D/F#        Em7        Cadd9
Sometimes the only things words do is get in the way

G             D/F#        Em7       Cadd9
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say
G             D/F#        Em7   Cadd9
Only wish you knew what I wanted to say
