    Most chord changes align to the up-beat.
    1:
    AEsus4E
    Dad I know you were sad when you died 
    ADAE
    And I was young it's the way I kept you in my mind 
    AEsus4E
    The mess that was left and my mother cried 
    ADAE
    And when she stood up she was nobody's mother I'd be fine 
    1:
    DA
    But I missed you then 
    DA
    And I miss you now 
    F#mAE
    Liked you'd missed things I might say 
    DA
    You're still lost in clouds 
    DA
    But I'm older now 
    F#mAE
    I can see through lifting haze 
    BmAED
    That you were away even when you were here 
    2:
    AEsus4E
    Sometimes a phrase or a manner that's you 
    AD
    Comes through me, it goes in a flash 
    AE
    It's a frame, it's a blink like life 
    AEsus4E
    Oh and how much now should we pay for the past 
    ADAE
    Cause you could age with grace if I freed you in my mind 
    2:
    DA
    But I loved you then 
    DA
    And I love you now 
    F#mAE
    All the things I wished I'd asked 
    DA
    When I'm lost in clouds 
    DA
    I remember how 
    F#mAE
    I was robbed and I was blessed 
    BmBm
    And you were away even when you were here 
    F#mEBm
    Cause it's not about you, not you, anymore 
    F#mE
    It's about what I'd do with it all 
    C#7DADAF#mAE
    And I, I'll never let you let me down 
    Break:
    DADAF#mAE
    Outro: 
    AEsus4E
    This morning I wake to be older than you were 
    ADAE
    fresh like snow, for miles, every footstep will be mine 
    DADA
    You'd have lost that weight, you'd have gone so straight 
    F#mAE
    You'd have made my wedding day 
    DADA
    You'd have saved my youth from that point of truth 
    F#mAE
    You'd have kept those wolves at bay 
    BmDA
    But you were away, you were away even when you were here
