[Verse 1]
         Bm                       G
In this time when the stakes are high
 D                                  A
I want you to think fondly of the first long drive
         Bm                      G
Return yourself to where it all began
    D                                   A
In the thick of it all when the feeling first set in

[Refrain]
 Bm 
Before we got lost
Got ****** up
             G
Played with fire just because
        D
I did damage to you babe
                         A
And I fear I’ll pay the cost now
[Pre-Chorus]

Em F#m G
.......Nothing has ever really hurt like this
G         A              Bm 
Waking in the middle of the night
I begin to feel the weight of it
Em       F#m G
However, in spite of
The pain and panic and th? breaking down
     G        A        Bm 
The ache and angst within your ?yes    
                                     F#m              
Still I cannot get my head around the fact that

[Chorus]
             G               A           Bm 
We’re on the brink of losing all that’s unwritten
        G          F#m              Em          F#m
Everything I envisioned is slipping out of my hands
         G                 A           Bm 
on the brink of bruising I watch you undoing
      G                 F#m               A
Everything we have built up, if you just gave it a chance
G 
..We could turn away from the edge

[Verse 2]
        Bm                          G
In this time, we take the space we need
D                                           A
..I’m coming to learn that without you, I don’t know me
                        Bm 
And it’s caught me off guard, thrown this thing off
        G
I kept quiet just because
         D                                             A
You did damage to me babe, and I’ve come to pay the cost now

[Pre-Chorus]
Em F#m G
.......Nothing has ever really hurt like this
G         A              Bm 
Waking in the middle of the night
I begin to feel the weight of it
Em       F#m G
However, in spite of
The pain and panic and the breaking down
     G        A        Bm 
The ache and angst within your eyes    
                                     F#m              
Still I cannot get my head around the fact that

[Chorus]

             G               A           Bm 
We’re on the brink of losing all that’s unwritten
        G          F#m              Em          F#m
Everything I envisioned is slipping out of my hands
         G                 A           Bm 
on the brink of bruising I watch you undoing
      G                 F#m               A
Everything we have built up, if you just gave it a chance
G 
..We could turn away from the edge

[Bridge]
Em                                     G
..Oh, don’t you wanna try to make it last?
Em                                   D
..I never want to wonder what this could have been
Em                            G
..But honey, I can feel you fading fast
Em                F#m                     G
..I beg of you to think this through and see us in that light again

[Chorus]
             G               A           Bm 
We’re on the brink of losing all that’s unwritten
        G          F#m              Em          F#m
Everything I envisioned is slipping out of my hands
         G                 A           Bm 
on the brink of bruising I watch you undoing
      G                 F#m               A
Everything we have built up, if you just gave it a chance
G 
..We could turn away from the edge
