																				Things I Cannot Change.
(Jaime Hanna, Dennis Britt, Alan Miller)


Intro:   Am    C     G     E          (4X)



    

Am     C        G          E           Am
Leaves fall         in the cool October air
          C          G           E             Am
Days grow short,           and I can`t remember where
          C       G              E                Am
I saw you last,          turned against the summer light
        C       G              E            F

Walking off,           on that final August night.


                  Fm          C

I was there on my knees, all alone
        Am  D            Fm             C

In a world where nothing ever stays the same
     Am  D         Fm               C

I am left with only things I cannot change
       Am    D               Fm             C        C                
You`ve gone away and left me things I cannot change

Am         C            G         E          Am 
Smoke will rise             and a fire always burns
           C         G               E

Sands will drift       and tides will turn
                     Am              C

And I can`t          wrestle with the sea
    G                      E                Am       C

Rearrange the sky       or fight against the wind
    G               E         F      Fm
Any more than I can bring you back to me                  

      Am   D            Fm             C

In a world where nothing ever stays the same
     Am   D         Fm              C

I am left with only things I cannot change
       Am    D               Fm              C

You`ve gone away and left me things I cannot change
    Am    D             Fm              C

So far away and left me things I cannot change

Am   D      Fm      C (repeat)

Left me things I cannot change

View Just Lyrics...

Leaves fall in the cool October air
Days grow short and I can't remember
Where I saw you last
Turned against the summer light
Walking off on that final August night
I was there on my knees, all alone

In a world
Where nothing ever stays the same
I am left
With only things I cannot change
You've gone away
And left me things I cannot change

Smoke will rise
And the fire always burns
Sands will drift
And tides will turn and I can't
Wrestle with the sea
Rearrange the sky, or fight against the wind
Anymore than I
Can bring you back to me

In a world
Where nothing ever stays the same
I am left
With only things I cannot change
You've gone away
And left me things I cannot change
