[Intro]

A


[Verse 1]

A             E/G#       D             A
We'll do it all, everything, on our own.
A          E/G#       D         A
We don't need anything, or anyone.


[Chorus]

         A                E/G#
If I lay here, if I just lay here
                D                               A
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.


[Verse 2]

A              E/G#         D           A
I don't quite know how to say how I feel
A              E/G#               D               A
Those three words, I said too much, but not enough.


[Chorus]

         A                E/G#
If I lay here, if I just lay here
                D                               A
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.
                 A                      E/G#
Forget what we're told, before we get too old
           D                             A
Show me a garden that's bursting into life.


[Verse 3]

A               E/G#          D                A
Let's waste time, chasing cars, around our heads.
A              E/G#          D                A
I need your grace to remind me, to find my own.


[Chorus]

         A                E/G#
If I lay here, if I just lay here
                  D                             A
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.
                 A                      E/G#         
Forget what we're told, before we get too old
           D                              A
Show me a garden that's bursting into life.
              A             E/G#
All that I am, all that I ever was 
                        D                          A
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see
               A                          E/G#      
I don't know where, confused about how as well
                        D                                  A
just know that these things will never change for us at all.


[Outro]

A                         E/G# 
If I lay here, if I just lay here
                D                               A
Would you lie with me, and just forget the world.
