[Verse I]
Am
Left you, falling on the floor
Am
Headed for the door
Am
Went straight to Philadelphia
Am
Oh no, what have I begun?
Am
Called my mother, said I love her
Am
Had another and another one
Am
Questions, questions, suddenly suggestions
Am
Where was anyone at the start of this thing?
Am
Hold the cold up over your shoulder
Am
All I needs a place to grieve

[Pre-Chorus]
F                              C
Oh, it's for the best you didn't listen
Em                            Am            G
It's for the best we get our distance (oh oh woah oh)
F                            C
It's for the best you didn't listen
G
It's for the best we get our distance
[Chorus] C Dm Oh lord, I feel alive Em F G I've gone and saved my soul C Dm If all that you read is everything you believe Em F G Then let go, then let go, then let go [Verse II] Am Now I'm over my head Am Acting like I never started over again Am I am the city I'm from Am Always wanting more than just a word on my arm Am Oh, I know, I can't believe Am That I'd let it get to me Am Good to know I won't become Am Everything I'm afraid of
[PRE-CHORUS] F C Oh, it's for the best you didn't listen Em Am G It's for the best we get our distance (oh oh woah oh) F C It's for the best you didn't listen G It's for the best we get our distance [Chorus] C Dm Oh lord, I feel alive Em F G I've gone and saved my soul C Dm If all that you read is everything you believe Em F G Then let go, then let go, then let go [Bridge] F G Mama don't cry C G Am I was once your little baby boy Am So full of love and light F G By the time I turned 25 C G I was lost among the pavement Am G Lower than the basement F G And I couldn't stand and smile G C G Am G I thought of taking my own life F G But mama don't cry G C G I found songs among the tragic Am G Hung my hat on sadness F G Mom, I think they're trying to keep the grand romantic in me C G Am G Now that we got bottom lines F G C But mom, I think I'm ready to free this grand romantic in me [Chorus] C Dm Oh lord, I feel alive Em F G I've gone and saved my soul C Dm If all that you read is everything you believe Em F G Then let go, then let go, then let go
