          G        Em
I found a love for me
             C                            D
Darling just dive right in, and follow my lead
               G           Em
Well I found a girl beautiful and sweet
        C                                     D
I never knew you were the someone waiting for me

[Pre-Chorus]
                                G
Cause we were just kids when we fell in love
            Em                      C                G  D
Not knowing what it was, I will not give you up this time
                 G                           Em
But darling just kiss me slow, your heart is all I own
            C                   D
And in your eyes you’re holding mine

[Chorus]
    Em   C              G          D              Em
Baby I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
C                G     D                Em
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
          C                G                 D              Em
When you said you looked a mess, I whispered underneath my breath
         C                G        D             G  D  Em  D  C  D
But you heard it, darling you look perfect tonight

[Verse]
               G                    Em
Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know
               C                                         D
She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I’ll share her home..
          G              Em
I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets
         C                              D
To carry love, to carry children of our own..

[Pre-Chorus]
                              G                     Em 
We are still kids, but we’re so in love, fighting against all odds
             C               G  D
I know we’ll be alright this time
               G                            Em 
Darling just hold my hand, be my girl, I’ll be your man
          C              D
I see my future in your eyes

[Chorus]
     Em   C              G         D              Em
Baby I’m dancing in the dark, with you between my arms
C                G     D                Em
Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
       C                G                D      
When I saw you in that dress, looking so beautiful
  Em       C                  G        D           G    Em     C  D    
I don't deserve this, darling you look perfect tonight     No no nah

Barefoot on the grass, listening to our favorite song
        C              G               D             Em
I have faith in what I see, now I know I have met an angel
    C          G         D             
In person, and she looks perfect,

 Intro
Dm  F  Am  Gsus2  
Dm  F  Am  Gsus2  Dm

 Verse I
Dm                 F
Down by the river, by the boats
      Am                 Gsus2
Where everybody goes to be alone
Dm                      F
Where you won't see any rising sun
Am                 Gsus2     Dm
Down to the river we will run

 Verse II
Dm                   F
When by the water we drink to the dregs
Am                        Gsus2
Look at the stones on the river bed
Dm         F
I can tell from your eyes
Am                      Gsus2  Dm
You've never been by the riverside

 Verse III
Dm                    F
Down by the water the riverbed
Am                      Gsus2
Somebody calls you, somebody says
Dm                       F
Swim with the current and float away
Am                 Gsus2
Down by the river everyday

  Chorus
Dm    Am     C       Gsus2          Dm         Am    C
Oh my God, I see how everything is torn in the river deep

Remembering Sunday – All Time Low

 Intro: D, F#m, D, B7

  Verse 1:
D                                         F#m
   He woke up from dreaming and put on his shoes
                             D    
   Started making his way past two in the morning
                             B7
   He hasn't been sober for days
D    
   Leaning now into the breeze
 E  
   Remembering Sunday he falls to his knees
           D  
   They had breakfast together

   But two eggs don't last
            B7
   Like the feeling of what he needs
D    
   Now this place seems familiar to him
 E  
   She pulled on his hand with a devilish grin
      D  
   She led him upstairs, she led him upstairs
           B7
   Left him dying to get in

 Chorus:
  A                       D    
   Forgive me I'm trying to find
                          B7
   My calling, I'm calling at night

   I don't mean to be a bother
      D    
   But have you seen this girl?
  A                             D    
   She's been running through my dreams
                               B7
   And it's driving me crazy it seems
                             D    
   I'm gonna ask her to marry me

  Verse 2:
D                                    E  
  Even though she doesn't believe in love
                             D  
  He's determined to call her bluff

  Who could deny, these butterflies?

  They're filling his gut
D                      E  
  Waking the neighbors, unfamiliar faces
    D  
  He pleads though he tries

  But he's only denied
           B7
  Now he's dying to get inside

 Chorus:
A

Falling from high places, falling through lost spaces,

Now that we're lonely, now that there's nowhere to go.

Watching from both sides, these clock towers burning up,

I lost my time here, i lost my patience with it all.

We lost faith, in the arms of love.
