Dear God

Verse 1
 
Dear
Eb 
God, I’ve been
Gm7 
trying awful hard
 
To make You
Ab 
proud of me
 
But it
Eb 
seems the
Gm7 
harder that I try, the
Ab 
harder it becomes
 
And I feel like giving
Eb 
up
Gm7 
Most of the
Ab 
time
 
Verse 2
 
Dear
Eb 
God, I’ve been
Gm7 
chasing their approval
 
And it’s
Ab 
killing me
 
And I
Eb 
know the
Gm7 
more I try to prove the
 
And I’m stuck inside
Eb 
my head
Gm7 
Most of the
Eb 
time
 
Pre-Chorus
 
But if I
Fm 
pray a little harder
 
If I
Bb 
follow all the rules
 
I
Fm 
wonder could I ever be
Bb 
enough
 
Chorus
 
‘Cause I
Eb 
try and
Gm7 
try
 
Just to
Ab 
fall back down
Eb 
again
 
And I
Eb 
ask myself
Gm7 
why
 
Do I
Ab 
try to chase the
Eb 
wind
 
I should
Cm 
lean into the
Bb 
mystery
 
Maybe
Ab 
hope is found in a
Eb 
melody
 
So I
Cm 
wanna
Bb 
try
Ab 
again
 
Oh,
Cm 
I’m gonna
Bb 
try
Ab 
again
 
Verse 3
 
Dear
Eb 
child, I hope you
Gm7 
know how much I love you
 
And I’m
Ab 
proud of you
 
Please
Eb 
believe the
Gm7 
thoughts I have for you
 
Will never
Ab 
change or fade away
 
When you felt like giving
Eb 
up
 
I
Gm7 
never
Ab 
did
 
Pre Chorus 2
 
I’m not
Fm 
scared of imperfections
 
Or the qu
Bb 
estions in your head
 
Just
Fm 
know that you have always been
Bb 
enough
 
Chorus 2
 
‘Cause you
Eb 
tried and
Gm7 
tried
 
And I
Ab 
saw you wrestle
Eb 
with
 
Every
Eb 
how, every
Gm7 
why
 
I was
Ab 
right there
Eb 
listening
 
So just
Cm 
fall into the
Bb 
mystery
 
And I’ll
Ab 
meet you here in the
Eb 
melody
Cm 
Try just to
Bb 
try
Ab 
again
 
Oh
Cm 
child would you
Bb 
try
Ab 
again
 
My
Cm 
child you can
Bb 
love
Ab 
again
