A                                      G             | G     E |
You with the past at your back and the future unsure   . . . . 
A                           D    A    G 
Asked for the chance to try love once more
Dmaj7                          Amaj7                 F#m7
Well aware of the consequences should the dream fall through
Dmaj7                            D          A             E
You threw down you last defenses wanting to try something new
D          A             E
Wanting to try something new

You found me in a sea of confusion drifting with the tide   . . . .
A                       D    A     G
Living on love that had long since died
    Dmaj7                             Amaj7                   F#m7
But every time that I touch you, baby . I feel a little more alive
Dmaj7
. And I'm reminded how much you've made me
  D            A            E
Believe in the love that survives
                   D            A            E
You know we must believe in the love that survives

    Dmaj7
Oh, lessons learned are like bridges burned
    Amaj7                       F#m7
You only need to cross them but once
       Dmaj7                            E      A 
Is the knowledge gained worth the price of the pain?

Are the spoils worth the cost of the hunt?
        D                A           E 
Are the spoils worth the cost of the hunt?

A                                 G                   | G     E |
Borne on the first warms winds of feelings newly found  . . . .
A                D     A    G
Fly but remember don't look down

Dmaj7
Take as much as you think you ought to
Amaj7                    F#m7
Give just as much as you can
Dmaj7
Don't forget what your failures have taught you
               D              A     E
Or else you'll learn them all over again
                       D              A     E
Or else you'll have to learn them all over again

(My chord charts are intended to show how, as a rhythm guitarist, 
I play songs. I don't claim they are the "right" way. They are not 
tabs, which notate precisely how a song was played on a recording.)
