[Verse 1]
            G
I remember way back when
             D
I felt only ennui
                     A        A
Like nothing could complete me
                 G
No promise of a rising sun
             D
Illuminating everyone
                A        A
The very thought defeated
              G
My life was a blinding light
                            D
Must be what it's like when worlds collide
                    A
Especially when he sees her
Pretty soon, he'll tease her
              G
I was on the road too long
                   D
My laboured lover, only song
                    A      A
Not one of them a keeper....

[Chorus]
          G                               
But if I woke in the morning to find you were gone
Bm
I know I'd try and find the will to be strong
          D
But am I strong enough?
        A
Am I strong enough?
   G
I once built a bower, I could build you a home
  Bm                                          D
Together forever, but forever and on is still not long enough
            A
It's still not long enough

[Verse 2]
                    G
I know the fear was in your eyes
                 D
And I could see myself as a child
              A           A
Such a devastating feeling
                 G
I wished I could go back in time
                        D
But all I could do was apologise
                   A
Right then, your eyes were healing
A
Healing

[Chorus]
          G                               
But if I woke in the morning to find you were gone
Bm
I know I'd try and find the will to be strong
          D
But am I strong enough?
        A
Am I strong enough?
   G
I once built a bower, I could build you a home
  Bm                                          D
Together forever, but forever and on is still not long enough
            A
It's still not long enough

[Bridge]
               G                    D
Oh, I've been Cain, but I wanna be Abel
            A
Been a drunken fool
      D             D/F#    G                             D
But I wanted to be stable enough to lay every one of my cards on the table
  A
Hope it's not too late for us to find a way to

[Chorus]
          G                               
But if I woke in the morning to find you were gone
Bm
I know I'd try and find the will to be strong
          D
But am I strong enough?
        A
Am I strong enough?
   G
I once built a bower, I could build you a home
  Bm                                          D
Together forever, but forever and on is still not long enough
            A
It's still not long enough

[Outro]
        G                     
I went looking inside myself for a home
       Bm
Found only a sapling in search of an oak 
             D
But it's a start, my love
            A
Oh, it's a start, my love
        G
But am I strong enough?
