TITLE: The Way I Tend to Be
Lyrics and Chords

[Capo 4]

Intro: / G D C - G D C - /

Some mornings I pray for evening, for the day to be done
Some summer days I hide away and wait for rain to come
'Cause it turns out Hell will not be found within the fires below
But in making do and muddling through when you've nowhere else to go

/ C G D C / / / C G D Em - /

But then I remember you
And the way you shine like truth in all you do
And if you remembered me
You could save me from the way I tend to be
The way I tend to be

/ C G D - / / / / Intro /

Some days I wake up dazed, my dear, I don't know where I am
I've been running for so long I'm scared I've forgotten how to stand
And I stand alone in airport bars and gather thoughts to think
That if all I had was one long road it could drive a man to drink


'Cause I've said I love you so many times that the words kind of die in my mouth
And I meant it each time with each beautiful woman but somehow it never works out
And you stood apart in my calloused heart and you taught me and here's what I learned
That love is about all the changes you make and not just three small words

/ Am - - G / / / /

{As refrain}
And then I catch myself
Catching your scent on someone else
In a crowded space
And it takes me somewhere I cannot quite place


The way I tend to be
The way I tend to be
