Verse 2

Use chords from first verse). Once I was a carpenter, man my hands were calloused I could swing a metal mallet sure and straight But I took to the highway, a poet young and hungry and I left the timbers where they lay ForFever I will move like the wFmorld that turns beneath me and when I lCose my dirAmection I'll loGok up to the sky and when the blFack cloak drags upon the ground I'll be reFmady to surrender, and remCember well we're Amall in this togGether If I lFive the life I'm given,Fm I wont be scared to die Verses 3+4. (Same as first two.) And I don't come from Detroit, but her diesel motors pull me and I followed till I finally lost my way And now I spend my days in search of a woman we called purpose And if I ever pass back through here town I'll stay

Chorus 2

Same as first). Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky and when the black cloak drags upon the ground I'll be ready to surrender, and remember well we're all in this together If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die And my life is but a coin, pulled from an empty pocket Dropped into a slot with dreams of sevens close behind And hope and fear go with it, and moon and the sun go spinning Like the numbers and fruits before my eyes

Bridge

CSometimes I hFit, sometiGmes it robs me blCind Sometimes I hit, sometimes it robs me blind

Chorus 3

Same as first two). Forever I will move like the world that turns beneath me and when I lose my direction I'll look up to the sky and when the black cloak drags upon the ground I'll be ready to surrender, and remember well we're all in this together If I live the life I'm given, I won't be scared to die

G My dream of all dreams and my hope of all hopes Is only to tell you and make sure you know How much I love you and how much I always did. And yes I know you loved me, I can see it in your eyes And it was in your struggle and it was in your mind And it was in the smile you gave me when I was a kid

Feels like Cno one uAmnderstandsG CAnd now mAmy only cGhance To tFalk to yGou is tChrough Em7my pAmrayers. I only Fwanted to tGell you I careCd Every night after and every day since, I found myself crying when the memory hit. Sometimes it knocks me down, sometimes I just put it away. Down in my mind where I don't care to go The pain of a lesson is letting me know If you have love in your heart let it show while you can Yes now I understand But now my only chance To talk to you is through my prayers. I only wanted to tell you I cared. I only wanted to tell you I cared.
