    Verse 1:

            D                  G                           Cadd9                     F6add9 (½)    Cadd9 (½)

    How high can you kiss the sun, run a minute mile while you hitch hike,

             D                                   G                                  Cadd9                F6add9 (½)    Cadd9 (½)

    love shines a light, I'll be your winners cup and I'll be looking for the one who cut you up,

                      D                               G                                  Cadd9           F6add9 (½)    Cadd9 (½)

    you're not having me I know the skies are mean and I'll be looking for the way to free you.

     

    Chorus 1:

                     F (6)                                                                           C (2)

    'Cause I'm fixing holes, the ones you brake up coming from your drive,

                   F (6)                                                                 C (2)

    and the hands that rocks you cuts you up like lyrics of your life

                               

    Repeat Intro

     

    Verse 2:

              D                  G                             Cadd9      F6add9 (½)    Cadd9 (½)

    Can't buy what I've done before I wanna open up another door,

                     D                       G                            Cadd9                        F6add9 (½)    Cadd9 (½)

    I'm gonna let you pass on another pass, I wanna be the king while you zig zag,

              D                  G                                 Cadd9           F6add9 (½)    Cadd9 (½)

    on a holy road like Kain from Kung Foo, how high can you kiss the sun?

     

    Chorus 2:

       F (6)                                                                 C (2)

    Hang on to your hopes my darlin' don't let it slip away

                  F (6)                                                                             C (2)
    And the hand that holds you keeps you warm and helps you live today

     

    Bridge:

                         Am   Em          Fmaj7        (C)

    Love shines a light,     and it takes and it hurts, I know

         Am   Em       Fmaj7     (C)

    I'm right,   I can bend till I burst,

           Am              Em             Fmaj7          (C)

    And love shines a light and repays you with us

            G (4)
    Yeah too right I'm gonna pledge my time 'til the day I die

     

    Repeat Verse 1, Chorus 1, and Bridge

     

    End on D
