    I was born in the arms of imaginary friends

 

G             (D)               (A)              (Bm)               G       (D)   (A) (1)

  Free to roam, made a home out of everywhere I've been

              A (1)     Bm (1)

Like the realest thing

Trying my best to understand all that your love can bring

Oh, half of my heart's got a grip on the situation

Half of my heart takes time

I can`t keep loving you, Oh, with half of my heart

G                    (D)                    (A)            (Bm)   G          (D)   (A) (1)

  I made a plan, stayed the man who can only love himself

G (1)                            D (1)

Lonely was the song I sang

            A (1)       Bm (1)

'Til the day you came

    G (1)                      D (1)                     A (2)

Showing me another way and all that my love can bring

Your faith is strong

But I can only fall short for so long

                D (1)        F#m (1)

Down the road, later on

             Am (1)                         Em (1)

You will hate that I never gave more to you

     G (2)

than half of my heart

          A (2)

But I can't stop loving you

I can't stop loving you, With half of my

G              (D)                  (A) (1)

Half of my heart's got you

G             (D)                     (A)           (Bm)

Half of my heart's got a right mind to tell you

G                          (D)           (A) (1)

That half of my heart won't do

 

G               (D)           (A)          (Bm)          

Half of my heart is a shotgun wedding to a

G                 (D)         (A) (1)

bride with a paper ring

G              (D)                  (A)      (Bm)         

Half of my heart is the part of a man who's never

truly loved anything
