FALL

 

Your Only Friend

 

A††† Am7††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G†† D†† A

Itís hard when no one can hear you call out

Baby

This empty apartment never seemed so dark before

Lately

††††††††††††††††††††††††††† G

So maybe some records

†††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††Gb

Will give me some comfort

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† F

Just what I need now

E††††††† G

So Iíll put on the headphones

 

 

A†††††††††††††††††† F††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

Sometimes a song will fill your soul

†††††††††††††† †††††††Dm††††††††††††† A††††††††††††† Ab†††† G†† F

Sometimes a melody will make you whole again

When musicís your only friend

 

Itís hard when everyone thinks youíve gone

Crazy

I looked in the mirror and the person staring back seemed to

Hate me

 

But I can remember

Before gurls of September

When this song meant something more

Than a sunset at waterloo station

 

DF#mE

 

Dm G F#m B A

 

CHORUS

 

Half Dead

 

I donít feel like

Fighting anymore

Like a toothache we decay weíre both so sore

Do you hate me, you wish we never met?

You wonít answer you just smoke your cigarette

 

I have to believe thereís someone out there

Who is tired of dying inside

I gotta dream of a blue sky ahead

But my nightmare bloodshot red eyes canít see through the tears

Iím half dead

 

I donít think this dark tunnel ends with light

You donít feel like holding me at night

Do you love me donít you want me as your pet

Get up get out, soon or never, please donít give up yet

 

Why canít things be the way they used to be

Iím tired of waiting blind navigating to come back

Itís hard to even see (repeat chorus)

 

 

Shoulda Fooled Me

 

When you started falling out of love

I tried to hold on

And I thought we could go on forever if I believed that you would stay

 

Now the ice melts and the blood pours out

Of a time frozen wound in another life

Did you ever love me

Or was it only pity?

 

You shoulda fooled me

Ďcause I would have believed tyou

and I wanted to need you until the very end

I wish youíd fooled me

For a little longer just to get me stronger

Before you knocked me down again

 

Now youíre unhappy

I guess that I am too

I need to hold someone

You say it canít be you

Why canít things be the way they used to be?

 

Iíll hold onto the past

Take shelter from the future

I canít give a reason why you should stay with me

If you think it could be better

 

CHORUS

 

I think that I knew deep inside

That it all was just a lie

And I think that I knew that young love just might die

Sometimes bad things happen to those who never know

 

(instrumental)

 

modulate chorus up a whole step.

 

 

The Way Things Used To Be

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Thinking back to happier times

Two kids in love under stars shining bright

We could do no wrong thatís the way things should be

 

Thereís leaves falling down

Youíre moving to another town

Iíll help you fill your trunks with our memories

 

Now Iím living on my own

And thereís no one to call my home

This wasnít the future I expected to see

 

Life recently has been

Impossible to understand

Why canít things be

The way they used to be?

 

Thereís a chill in the air these past few days

I know Iíve failed you before so many ways

But could you call me your friend?

 

(middle 8 or whatever)

E B A Abm F# A E

E B A Abm F# D E

 

Time passes by as I change

From a boy into a weary young man

Why canít things be

The way they used to be

 

You used to phone me every day

Now thereís so many things I need for you to hear me say

WINTER

 

Smile

 

Donít look at me like you know me

Ďcause you only know my face

I could have reached out a thousand times to touch yours

Maybe it was never my place

 

Tears to empty your sorrow

Tears to blur your vision

Tears to drown your fears in a sea of conviction

 

If I could make you smile, wouldnít that be something?

Show me in your eyes

Smile for me on the inside

 

Donít you know me

You know my songs and you know my voice

Spend your Sunday afternoons with music and god

And write your friend a letter

Tears to empty your sorrow

Tears to blur your vision

Tears to drown your fears in a sea of conviction

 

If I could make you smile, wouldnít that be something?

Show me in your eyes

Smile for me on the inside

 

Smile for the hope you have for the world

Smile for the boys and all the girls

Smile for the kindness that you have

Smile for all the love you have to give Ö you have

 

Love Is The Answer

 

Some wait all lives saving every dollar til the time is right

On deathbed of gold they realize their soulís been sold

Never trusting, hesitating to reveal themselves

Did you ever look into her eyes and feel her soul just once?

 

Love is a gift you take and give

The answer was there all along

Love is the only thing worth living for

The answer was there in your heart

 

You were afraid to love her

Only now, you do

Love her now, love her like sheíll be

Taken from you

 

They all take a piece

But you may die a little every time

You must give yourself to them

To really feel alive

 

Love is a gift you take and give

The answer was there all along

Love is the only thing worth living for

The answer was there in your heart

 

(solo)

 

(Chorus)

 

Iíd rather live eternal night with my love

Than be burned by the sun and walk alone

So now the choices I have made

Will rectify the damage done

Can we live forever in this dream world we have

Fashioned out of love?

 

(chorus)

 

 

Every Day Is Christmas

 

The holidays always used to get me down

I thought I was going to spend this one

With no one else around

 

It was almost midnight on Christmas Eve

When an angel came to rescue me

So sweet

 

I had so much trouble getting to sleep

Knowing you were waiting under the tree

For me

 

Every day is Christmas in my heart

You gotta start

Loving each other now (x2)

 

It didnít feel like Christmas yesterday

I didnít feel a thing at all but this pain

Oh no

 

Funny how different things seem when

Youíre in love

How the sunshine melts the cold away

As it shines through the clouds above

 

I want to share this feeling with the world

Because the world is so much more beautiful

looking in the eyes of your girl

 

Doesnít matter who you are

You just have to keep love in your heart

(Oooooo)

I thank God for you

The†† best†† Christmas†† gift Ö is love

 

Chorus

 

Feel This way Again (tuned down a whole step)

 

 

A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††

You were sad at a party with everyone there just for you

D

Sat down and cried: no prince charming had your shoe

A

I saw you there I believe now in love at first sight

F#m

Wish we could take a walk out into the silent night

 

Gmaj†††††††††††††††††† D

Maybe we could hold hands

†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† A

And wish on stars

 

 

If you could have any gift, what would you have it be

I know that I would just have you here with me

 

Let down your hair, thereís no need to make believe

Be yourself, hold me close, trust your heart and kiss me

 

 

Youíll feel so safe

From now on

Itís getting so late

I should take you home

 

B

I††† want†† to††† see you†† again girl

Dmin

I†† want††† to†† be with you always

F#m

Itís been so long since I felt this

G†††††††††††††††††††††† Gm††††††††††† D

We may never feel this way again!

(instrumental)

F#mG††† Gm††† D

 

These days have been the best of my life

I donít deserve all the love you give to me

I donít know why, but it feels so right

Friends say ďtake it slowĒ but Iím in love head over feet

 

Itís getting late

Letís go home

Letís talk all night

I donít want to be alone††† (CHORUS)

 

SPRING

Canít Stop Crying (tuned down a whole step)

 

Candle light

Three in the morning

A bottle of wine

Fumbling around

With words that just get in the way

 

Everything good

Was taken from me long ago

Thereís nothing left

But this piece of my heart is all yours

 

D

Itís been so long

Now I canít seem to stop crying in your arms

A (c, b, a)

D

Thereís nothing wrong

Iím just so scared to lose you now thatís all

Canít stop crying

 

Candle light

Flickering out

To the sun rise

Safely in bed

with the words that you said yesterday

 

 

 

Fairytale

 

Waking in the morning

Lying next to you

Hoping you will stay with me

That dreams can come true

Itís a fairytale beginning

Iím your king and youíre my queen

 

We have watched the sun rise

My morning glory is you

Opening the window to the light

My love for you has bloomed

Itís a fairytale springtime

You are my everything

 

Put your head on my chest

Listen to my heart

Beating now for no one else

You will never be alone

Weíre the fairytale lovers

You have freed me and now I can sing

 

 

The way things used to be (part 2)

 

I hope you still love me

And Iíve tried to do my best

Iím happier with you

Than Iíve ever been

 

Iím sorry for the way I sometimes am

Iím sorry for the things Iíve done

I donít know who I am

I need you more every day, I hope you understand

 

If we are lost then all hope is gone

Why canít things be the way they used to be?

 

Now thereís flowers everywhere

Something grows where once trees were bare

My love for you grows on and on

 

Weíve come too far

To give up on each other now

I think weíll be the way we used to be

 

 

(Song For) Heather

 

Watching you brushing your hair

One hand on the windowsill

Am I a fool to think youíll

Stay with me after all?

 

Weíve got problems

Everybodyís got problems

And I know that if we stick together

Weíll come out just fine

 

It all depends

Cause I think we were meant to be together

Do you feel that way too, Heather?

 

Do do doo do do do doo, etc

 

Talking the day away

Both hands on the number three

Weíve got problems yeah but

We can work it out

 

No small tidal waves can

Drown the love I have for you

Iím still you and youíre still me

We havenít changed

 

It all depends though

I think we were meant to be together

Do you feel that way too, Heather?

 

Em††††††††††††† F#m††††† Bm

Weíre all tired of being sick

Something good could come of it

Waiting rooms, impending doom

Bm†††††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††† A/G†††† A/F#†††††††††††††††††††††††††††

Are nothing if you close your eyes and wish

 

SUMMER

 

Fireworks

 

Falling far

Falling fast for you

Kissing in the rain

Summer swells

 

Feeling high

No umbrellas

Splashing in the street

Smile for me

 

A††

And the rain

Am

Pulls away

E

To a wet and sunny day

A

Countryside

Am

Rolls on by

E†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† B

As the sunset ends the day

 

F#E

Fireworks

F#

Were in the sky

A†††††††††††††††††††††††††† B

From the day you said my name

F#†† E

Fireworks

F#

Lit my nights

A††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† B

The strangest things forever and a day

F#††††††††††††††††††††† A†††††††††††††† E

That you should light my way

 

Berry lips

Whisper in my ear

And your fingernails

On my skin

 

 

 

Cotton Candy

 

Back in the summer of 94

Iíd never ever kissed a girl before you

Took you to the fair to win your affection

Your boyfriendís coming, you forgot to mention

 

Spent the evening standing in line

You and your boyfriend were waiting for rides, but

I was waiting to kiss your face

ĎCause I always wanted to take his place

 

And you were sweeter than cotton candy

I would have melted in your mouth like cotton candy

 

Iíd like to tell you that I won that girl

Sharing a sno-cone behind the tilt-a-whirl, no

Her boyfriend never left her side

The whole time

 

But now Iím just like that guy

The girl I love is by my side

Yeah thereís a fair right down my street

On the ferris wheel we kiss so sweet

 

Sheís sweeter than cotton candy

She melts in my mouth like cotton candyÖ

Repeat.

 

I need you

 

Verse

F# F E Eb B D C#

 

Sweat dripping from your face

As you race for the greatness you may never have

Some say youíll do or die

At least you can say you tried

 

*chorus*

I need you

To help me out

Our love can overcome

Our demons and fears

 

Love covers up the scars

That never really go away

Iíll help you if I can

We can try our best to understand

 

Love Is A Minor Key

 

Love is a minor key

Sweetly calling to me

With its melody

 

Please donít say anything

Run your fingers through my hair

My love, please beware

 

We spend days in the sun-setting

Watching fireflies

As we softly lie

Dreams spent wrapped up in gold

Nighttime wishes that we told

To each another own

 

You give me just a smile

Feel your arms around my waist

As I touch your face

 

Weíre drifting on a wave

Nothing bad can touch us here

My love, hold me near

 

We spend days in the sun-setting

Watching fireflies

As we softly lie

Dreams spent wrapped up in gold

Nighttime wishes that we told

To each another own
