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  
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  
Now who's standing at the door remembering the days before 
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
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 
Knowing this you found a thought for me that told you just what I should be  
    Bm              A
And there I stood behind
With all the ones that went before and memories that always seems to
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 
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 
On  top of all the love you took
                                         Bm            A
There was only something you can look at lying in your hand 
Now who's wondering what has changed and why it can not be arranged 
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
