[Verse 1] (use the plucking pattern above)
G D
How can I find us something
Em D
That two can take
C G
Without stumbling as we
Em D
Walk into out future's wake


[Verse 2]
G D
I'm like a broken record
Em D
That you can play
C G
Repeating as if it matters
Em A
Everything I wanna say


[Chorus]
G D/F# Em
I'll be alright
C
As long as it matters
D(hold)
As long as you're with me now


[verse 3] (do chord of verse 1)
Forget that time
It's nothing we touch and see
All this time
Even as it crushes down on me


[verse 4] (do chord of verse 2)
I'm looking around
There's nothing I could want
More than to tell you
There's no more than we've already got


(repeat chorus twice)
