Verse: [Am-x2-Dm-Am] Chorus [Em-Dm-Am-(Em-Am)] Bridge [F-Am-F-G-Am] x2


The sun rises
It's not so bright
The sky's still blue
Clouds still white

I can't see the stars
When I look up at night
things went wrong
When they could have gone right


I cry for tomorrow
I cry for yesterday
I cry clear blue tears
Every day


Been lost in a haze
For too many years
Avoiding the hurt
Running from fears

My life was on hold
While I'm getting old
Once you were gone
With a piece of my soul


I keep tellin myself
I gotta get movin on
Gotta get back to the world of the living
What's done is done
I can't go back
I have nothing left to be giving
