My mother said “I gained a friend
Em     Am   D               Em
At the end of the heart to heart.”

Em      Am          D            Em  C Em Bm C
With the choices you make in your life?”


[Chorus]

C                G
And you pick me up,
C                   G
And you hold me close,
C                 G
And you show the way,
Am              G
And you let me go.

My father said, “Use your head,
Em            Am    D               Em
The guys upstairs, they just don’t care.”

Em      Am          D       Em  C Em Bm C
When you are always so far away?”

And you pick me up,
C                   G
And you hold me close,
C                 G
And you show the way,
Am              G
And you let me go.


C         G               C
I let the light into my life,
C         G              C
Close my eyes before I die.
C               G
And you let me go,
C        Am      G
And you sent me off –


[Bridge]
C         Em   D
Into the sky,
D           Am                   Em
Always believe in me, always beside me.
Em              D               C
I’ve come this far and I'll be going
G                C
Farther than the stars.


[Chorus]

C                G
And you pick me up,
C                   G
And you hold me close,
C                 G
And you take my hand,
C                 G
And you watch me grow,
C                  G
And you show the way,
C               G
And you let me go.


C         G               C
I let the light into my life,
C         G              C
Close my eyes before I die.
C               G
And you let me go.
