Em                       D                                    Am
They met in a hurricane, standing in the shelter out of the rain
                           C
She tucked a note into his hand
Em                          D                                 Am
Later on they took his car, drove on down where the beaches are
                         C
He wrote her name in the sand
G          F             C     D
Never even let go of her hand

Somehow they stayed that way for those 5 days in May
Made all the stars around them shine
Funny how you can look in vain, living on nerves and such sweet pain
The loneliness that cuts so fine
To find the face you've seen a thousand times

C
Sometimes the world begins to set you up on your feet again
     Bm                                 D
And, oh, it wipes the tears from your eyes
C
How will you ever know the way that circumstances go
Bm                            D
Always gonna hit you by surprise
      Am            G
But I know my past, you were there
   C               Cmaj7
In everything I've done, you are the one

Solo

Looking back it's hard to tell why they stood while others fell
Spend your life working it out
All I know is one cloudy day they both just ran away
Rain on the windshield heading south
Oh, she loved the lines around his mouth

Sometimes the world begins to set you up on your feet again
And, oh, it wipes the tears from your eyes
How will you ever know the way that circumstances go
Always gonna hit you by surprise
I know my past, you were there
In everything I've done, you are the one
