Intro: G C G C

  G         C
Desiree, Listen to your heart
  G                                       C                        C G
Have your dreams all been scattered, are all the words just parts
  D              E            C                 D
Cause in these ruins alone, I've been watching you
  D            E              C                      D
A ghost among these stones, Desiree I've got to tell you
  E            A               C#                  D
What goods a tear without a face, to soften its downward fall from grace
 C#            D        B
And across my heart, Desiree I wish you'd see
 E             A                   C#               D
Scars are the wounds that we must show, time only heals if you let go
 C#            D         B                   
If you're letting go, Desiree I wish you'd think of..

  G                             C
If you only take chances, when every angle's safe
  G                             C                    C G
Have partnerless dances, and castles where you wait
  D            E        C               D
But I see far away, a distance in your eyes
  D            E        C               D 
As you go on alone, piling up your alibis

  E            A               C#                  D
What goods a tear without a face, to soften its downward fall from grace
 C#            D        B
And across my heart, Desiree I wish you'd see
 E             A                   C#               D
Scars are the wounds that we must show, time only heals if you let go
 C#            D         B                   
If you're letting go, Desiree I wish you'd think of..

 C#         A                 F#               B   B A
Lost in a movie script, with no words left to say
 G#                 A                F#
You leave on that plane alone, and there inside, a midnight fog
 F#               B
I turn and walk away.


  E            A               C#                  D
What goods a tear that falls from grace, what goods a life that leaves no trace
 C#            D        B
When it's time is done, Desiree I wish you'd see
 E             A                   C#               D
Who needs a heart that never bleeds, never retreats and never leaves
 C#            D         B                        E
If its all alone, Desiree I wish you'd think of..me
