Dan acoustic intro

C                                                          F                      C

I suppose that I don't know how many lives I've lived before,

            Dm                              F                      C

Whether I've done wrong or right along the way.

C                                                          F                      C

But you'd think that I've learned how to keep from getting burned,

            Dm                              F                      C

Shoulda gained that wisdom long before today.

            F                                              C                     

So maybe it's not that I don't know but more that I don't care.

    F                                                                  C                   D

I know full well my heart may break when I put it all out there.

            C                                              F                      C

I'd rather be a fool tomorrow than a coward any day.

     Dm                         F                                  C

I’ll always risk the pain for the love along the way.

C                                                          F                      C

my mama did her best to separate me from the rest,

            Dm                              F                      C

She wanted me to live my life out loud.

C                                                          F                      C

So I give everything I have twice the good and half the bad...

            Dm                              F                      C

don't know about tomorrow I'll take now.

            F                                              C                     

And yes I know I'll stumble often. Sometimes hell i'll fall.

    F                                                                  C                   G

I don't know what the future holds but I know I'll take it all.

            C                                              F                      C

I'd rather be a fool tomorrow than a coward any day.

     Dm                         F                                  C

I’ll always risk the pain for the love along the way.

C                                                          F                      C

I think back to the goodbyes that put the sadness in my eyes,

            Dm                              F                      C

when I was just too much or not enough.

C                                                          F                      C

But I wouldn't change a thing, for all the arrows and the slings

            Dm                              F                      C

you suffer well they’re worth their weight in love.

            F                                              C                     

And if I'd held back anything I'd surely lost it all.

    F                                                                  C                   G

The fastest route to missing out is hiding hind your walls.

            C                                              F                      C

I'd rather be a fool tomorrow than a coward any day.

     Dm                         F                                  C

I’ll always risk the pain for the love along the way.
