VERSE:
C                                    Fmaj7
Where were you when I was burned and broken,
         Am               G              F
While the days slipped by, from my window watching?
   C                                        Fmaj7
And Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless?
          Am                     Gadd9             F
Beause the things you say and the things you do surround me.
              Am7                 F
While you were hanging yourself on someone else's words,
Am                           Bb
Dying to believe in what you heard,
Am7           Gsus4             G       Csus2
I was staring straight into the shining sun.

Csus2               Fsus2	    F 
Lost in thought and lost in time,
         Am                    G5                   F
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted.
  Csus2         C             Fsus2
Outside the rain fell dark and slow,
       Am               G                          Fsus2
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime.
        Am                        Fsus2
I took a heavenly ride through our silence.
          Am              Bbsus2
I knew the moment had arrived
   Am                   Gsus4             Csus2
For killing the past and coming back to life.
