Spoken to…..

Mike emailed me yesterday and asked me if I could crank out a chart for a song our team is doing this weekend a The Orchard.

I love transcribing and making chord charts, so a request like this generally a no brainer for me.  The hardest part is generally finding accurate lyrics online so I don’t have to type them in.

This song absolutely rocked my world, both musically and lyrically.  It talks of a mindset that I’ve had and am trying to overcome.

It’s The Only One You’ve Got – 3 Doors Down

Verse 1:How do you know where you’re going
When you don’t know where you’ve been
You hide the shame that you’re not showing
And you won’t let anyone in
A crowded street can be a quiet place
When you’re walking alone
And now you think that you’re the only one

Pre-Chorus:  who doesn’t Have to try
And you won’t have to feel
If you’re afraid to fight
Then i guess you never will

Chorus:  You hide behind your walls of ‘maybe nevers’
Forgetting that there’s something more
Than just knowing better
Your mistakes do not define you now
They tell you who you’re not
You’ve got to live this life you’re given
Like it’s the only one you’ve got

Verse 2:  Memories have left you broken
And the scars have never healed
The emptiness in you is growing
But so little left to fill
You’re scared to look back on the days before
You’re too tired to move on
And now you think that you’re the only one who doesn’t


Chorus 2:

Bridge:  What would it take
To get you to say that i’ll try
And what would you say if
This was the last day of your life

Choruses 3 & 4:
