[Intro]
E    A    B    A
...................

[Verse 1]
               E
Shaking on the plane
            A
Mercy in my headphones
                   B
I guess that I was scared
            A
But I had a six-month window
               E
Liz was in the car
               A
Waiting at the airport
           B
I was unprepared
           A
To say goodbye
[Chorus]
B                     E        A
Life got heavy, I got carried away
B                        E         A
I was in the middle of a summer of pain
B
Didn't know the feeling
      E          A       B
But I wanted to stay in love...

[Verse 2]
                E
Matthew had the coke
              A
Billy had the friends out
                B
Britney had the sweet, sweet smile
                    A
That I could get my head 'round
                 E
Frankie's in the night
             A
Pizza by the deep black water
              B
Bodies on the beach cooking like a peach
             A
Either in my head either out of reach

[Chorus]
B                     E        A
Life got heavy, I got carried away
B                           E        A
Ran out of the pills, I was staying awake
B
Didn't know the feeling
      E         A           B
But I wanted to break the ties

[Refrain]
           A                              B
Maybe in a way I push my feelings right down
               E                          C#m    B
Looking for an easy fix to black them all out......
                A                              B
Maybe there was grace in all the ways I fell down
              E                               C#m    B
So I could be face to face with where I was found......

[Bridge]
                          E       A
Hey, no worries, couldn't do it again
B                   E         A
One too many, and I cannot pretend
B                       E         A      B
Found me a lover when I needed to find a friend

[Coda]
                   E
When Liz is in the car
               A
Smiling at the airport
                     E    B
She says, "I've come far....
E        A
Lots has happened"
                  E
I guess it really shows
                 A
How slowly we surrender
                    B
I let God and I let go
                        A
When I'm in Sydney, I remember
