[Verse 1]
      D                          G       D  
It's dark and it's quiet in my house tonight
  D                      A
Babies are all gone to sleep
      D                  G     D
It's hard to imagine a better life
         Bm     A      D  
Than the one I get to lead
         D                     G       D
I had a glass of wine but my mind is clear
       D                  A
These walls they talk to me
       D                       G        D
Don't blink an eye, you're a young man now
    Bm    A           D
But you won't always be
[Chorus]
    Bm   
My blood and my bones
    G             D   
My heart and my hands
     Bm                      A   
They try to hold all of this in
          D                     G         D
But I'm running to you like a west Texas wind
        Bm     A        G           D
Singing God I need you, oh, how I need you
Bm      A        D
God I need you again

[Verse 2]
       D                 G           D   
I've learned to hide my fear in my bones
    D                         A   
My body don't shake like the kids
          D                G        D
But I'm easily scared and often confused
     Bm    A          D
I rarely know what I did
      D                        G         D
I've made mistakes and even worse than that
      D                     A
I've hurt the ones that I love
     D                   G        D
I wish that peace would find me here
        Bm     A     D
But it seldom ever does

[Chorus]
    Bm   
My blood and my bones
    G             D   
My heart and my hands
     Bm                      A   
They try to hold all of this in
          D                     G         D
But I'm running to you like a west Texas wind
        Bm     A        G           D
Singing God I need you, oh, how I need you
Bm      A        D
God I need you again

[Bridge]
 D                      G         D
I'm in the shadows of Heaven and Earth
  D                        A
Maybe they should be the same
         D                G        D
But my Earthly body is bound and conflicted
         Bm     A         D
And I'm left feeling the pain
      D                G     D   
This house is not our only home
     D                        A
You can't protect love with stone
        D    
God I know you can hear me
     G           D
So please come near me
     Bm       A             D  
I'm ready to let the world go

[Chorus]
    Bm   
My blood and my bones
    G             D   
My heart and my hands
     Bm                      A   
They try to hold all of this in
          D                     G         D
But I'm running to you like a west Texas wind
        Bm     A        G           D
Singing God I need you, oh, how I need you
Bm      A        D
God I need you again
