Verse 1
 
You were not
Bb2 
hiding
 
But I couldn't
Dm7 
find
C(add4) 
You
 
If I'm being
Bb2 
honest
 
Not sure I
Dm7 
really
C(add4) 
tried
 
I wrestled with
Bb2 
angels
 
Defending my
Dm7 
i-
C(add4) 
dols
 
Walking in
Bb2 
circles
 
Til I was
Dm7 
blinded
C(add4) 
by the
Bb2 
light
 
Chorus
 
Now
F 
my eyes are open
 
And
Gm7 
heaven's a breath a
Bb2 
way
 
You
F 
broke through my borders
 
And
Gm7 
plotted my great es
Bb2 
cape
 
I'm
F 
running to freedom
 
I'm
Gm7 
taking my second
Bb2 
chance
Gm7 
Out of the grave
Bb2 
into the promised
F 
land

Verse 2
 
You were not
Bb2 
hiding
 
But I couldn't
Dm7 
find
C(add4) 
You
 
I used to
Bb2 
wander
 
Now I'm just
Dm7 
lost in
C(add4) 
You
 
My heart is
Bb2 
beating
 
I'm coming a
Dm7 
live, coming
C(add4) 
alive
 
To see is
Bb2 
believing
 
Then I don't
Dm7 
even
C(add4) 
have to
Bb2 
try
Bb2
