G (D) C
It must have been a place so dark you couldn’t feel the light
G D C
Reaching for you through that stormy cloud
G (D) C
Now here we are gathered in our little home town
G D C
This can’t be the way you meant to draw a crowd

D C
Oh why that’s what I keep asking
G D
Was there anything I could have said or done
D C
Oh I had no clue you were masking
G D Em
A troubled soul God only knows what went wrong
Cadd9 D C G walk down x2
And why you would leave a stage in the middle of a song

G (D) C
Now in my mind I keep you frozen as a seventeen year old
G D C
Rounding third to score the winning run
G (D) C
You always played with passion no matter what the game
G D C
When you took the stage you shined just like the sun

D C
Oh why that’s what I keep asking
G D
And was there anything I could have said or done
D C
Oh I had no clue you were masking
G D Em
A troubled soul Oh God only knows what went wrong
Cadd9 D C G walk down
And why you would leave a stage in the middle of a song
G walk down
Yeah yeah

(solo) Asus4 A Asus4 A C

G (D) C
Now the oak tree is a swayn in the early autumn breeze
G D C
The golden sun is shining on my face
G (D) C
The tangled thoughts I hear a mocking bird sing
G D C
This old world really aint that bad a place

D C
Oh why there’s no comprehending
G D
And who am I to try to just explain
D C
Oh but I do have one burning question
G D
Who told you life wasn’t worth the price
Em C Em C
They were wrong they lied now your gone and we cry
Cadd9 D G walk down
Cause its not like you to walk away in the middle of a song
G walk down
Your beautiful song
G walk down slowly G
Your absolutely beautiful song
