Intro
[Em]   | [Em]   | [D]   | [D]   |
[Am]   | [Am]   | [C]   | [C]   |
[Em] They met in a hurricane
[D] Standing in the shelter out of the rain
[Am] She tucked a note into his [C] hand [C]
[Em] Later on they took his car
[D] Drove on down where the beaches are
[Am] He wrote her name in the [C] sand [C]
[G] Never even [F] let go of her [C] hand [D]   | [D]   |

[Em] Somehow they stayed that way
[D] For those 5 days in May
[Am] Made all the stars around them [C] shine [C]
[Em] Funny how you can look in vain
[D] Living on nerves and such sweet pain
[Am] The loneliness that cuts so [C] fine [C]
To [G] find the face you've [F] seen a thousand [C] times [D]   | [D]   |

Chorus
[C] Sometimes the world begins,
to [C] set you up on your feet again
And [Bm] oh, it wipes the tears from your [D] eyes [D]
[C] How will you ever know,
the [C] way that circumstances go
[Bm] Always going to hit you by sur- [D] prise [D]
But I [Am↓] know my past [G↓] you were there
In [C↓] everything I've [Em7↓] done
You are the [Em] one | [Em]   |

[D]   | [D]   | [Am]   | [Am]   | [C]   | [C]   |

[Em] Looking back it's hard to tell
[D] Why they stood while others fell
[Am] Spend your life working it [C] out [C]
[Em] All I know is one cloudy day
[D] They both just ran away
[Am] Rain on the windshield heading [C] south [C]
[G] Oh she loved the [F] lines around his [C] mouth [D]   | [D]   |

Chorus
[C] Sometimes the world begins,
to [C] set you up on your feet again
And [Bm] oh, it wipes the tears from your [D] eyes [D]
[C] How will you ever know,
the [C] way that circumstances go
[Bm] Always going to hit you by sur- [D] prise [D]
But I [Am↓] know my past [G↓] you were there
In [C↓] everything I've [Em7↓] done
You are the [Em] one | [Em]   |

[D]   | [D]   | [Am]   | [Am]   | [C]   | [C]   | [Em↓]
