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
