1.       I've practiced this for hours, gone round and round,

                                                         Am

    and now I think that I've got it all down,

                                                              F

    and as I say it louder, I love how it sounds

                                                             D

    ’cause I'm not taking the easy way out.

 

    Not wrapping this in ribbons

                                  F

    shouldn't have to give a reason why.

It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow,

                G

I can't believe that I stayed till today,

                     Am

yeah, you and I will be a tough act to follow,

            F                        G                             C

but I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.

2.     It came out like a river once I let it out,

                                                              Am

    when I thought that I wouldn't know how,

                                                            F

    held onto it forever just pushing it down,

                                              D

    felt so good to let go of it now.

 

    Not wrapping this in ribbons,

                                 F

    shouldn't have to give a reason why

It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow,

               G

I can't believe that I stayed till today,

                         Am

there's nothing here in this heart left to borrow,

                           F                                 G

there's nothing here in this soul left to say.

 

                      C

Don't be surprised when we hate this tomorrow,

                           G

God knows, we tried to find an easier way.

                      Am

Yeah, you and I will be a tough act to follow,

           F                         G                             C

but I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.

 

C

    Our favorite place we used to go,

            G

    the warm embrace that no one knows,

          Am

    the loving look that's left your eyes

                 F                          G                   C

    that's why this comes as no, as no surprise.

 

     C                                                                       G

3.      If I could see the future and how this plays out,

                                                          Am

    I bet it's better than where we are now,

                                                                      F

    but after going through this, it's easier to see the reason why.

 

            C

It's no surprise I won't be here tomorrow,

                G

I can't believe that I stayed till today,

                     Am

yeah, you and I will be a tough act to follow,

            F                        G                              C

but I know in time we'll find this was no surprise.
