A D                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    
The first thing that I heard you say when you were standing there
                      Bm               A
Set in your way  was that you were not blind  
         D                                                              
You were sure to make a fool of me cause there was nothing there 
                              Bm             A
That you could see that could go beyond your mind  
                                    E                                   
Now who's standing at the door remembering the days before 
                     D
And asking please be kind  
         A                           E                      A
It isn't how it was set up to be but I've set you free this time
       D                                                                                            
I have never been so far out in front that I could ever ask for what I want 
    Bm          A
And have it any time 
        D                                                                    
Knowing this you found a thought for me that told you just what I should be  
    Bm              A
And there I stood behind
                                       E                                                           
With all the ones that went before and memories that always seems to
                D
Tear me from my mind 
            A                            E                      A  
In front of what it is you seem me to be I've set you free this time 
        D                                                                                                         
I could never find a chance to choose between a way to win or  a 
                Bm                   A
thing to lose because there was your stand 
    D                                                 
On  top of all the love you took
                                         Bm            A
There was only something you can look at lying in your hand 
                                         E
Now who's wondering what has changed and why it can not be arranged 
                        D
To have each thing work fine 
         A                           E                        A
It isn't how it was set up to be but I'll set  you free this time 

D        Bm            A
