F                     Bb                    
All the reasons I had faith in you

All the meaning behind
F                     Bb                    
Every season that I spent with you

I never thought you would cross the line

[Pre-Chorus]

when you walk into the door?
    Bb                         
and how do you look
       Dm                         
in the mirror anymore?
    Bb                        
And how do you toss
      F     F/E     Bb                       
the idea of you and me?
