D Cadd9   G              Cadd9  G
I seem to recognize your face
D   Cadd9  G                    Cadd9   G
haunting familiar, yet, I can't seem to place it
D      Cadd9  G                    Cadd9      G
Cannot find a candle of thought to light your name
D   Cadd9     G                Cadd9 G
lifetimes are catching up with me

Cadd9     A              Cadd9
All these changes taking place
  A                 Cadd9
I wish I'd seen the place
    A             Em
but no one's ever taken me

D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away

D Cadd9   G              Cadd9  G
I swear I recognize your breath
D      Cadd9   G                 Cadd9  G
Memories, like fingerprints, are slowly raising
D       Cadd9      G             Cadd9  G
Me, you wouldn't recall, for I'm not my former
D         Cadd9       G               Cadd9  G
It's hard when you're stuck up on the shelf

Cadd9       A               Cadd9
I change by not changing at all
      A                Cadd9
small town predicts my fate
   A                       Em
perhaps that's what no one wants to see

D      Cadd9   G           Cadd9  G
I just want to scream, "Hello"
D   Cadd9     G                   Cadd9         G
My, God, it's been so long, never dreamed you'd return
D       Cadd9    G        Cadd9  G
But now here you are, and here I am
D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9  G
Hearts and thoughts they fade away

D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away
D          Cadd9         G    Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade a  -  way
D          Cadd9         G     Cadd9 G
Hearts and thoughts they fade, fade away (repeat and fade)
