[Intro]

C D Em Am x2

[Verse 1]

       C                      D

If I close my eyes, will it come to life?

        Am                   Bm

Is it something I'm dreaming of?

       C                  D               Em

If a steady head doesn't rule my heart,

         Am                    C

will it lead me to somewhere happy enough?

[Pre-Chorus 1]

            Em              Am           Bm

And I'm a sorry soul in a sinful world

                    C

(and you don't get out alive)

      D                Em             Am

If I meet myself in a half way home,

            Bm

and I'll remember the things you said.

[Chorus 1]

 C                   D

Love isn't always fair,

                Em              G

but that's no reason to be so cruel to me.

 Am                   G

Hold on to what is there,

                Em      D

and count the saints.

C D Em Am x2

[Verse 2]

            C                    D

There's a reason why we keep it all inside.

              Am               Bm

To shield my hopes from the raining sky,

        C                  D              Em

then arrange it all into simple lines.

       Am                    C

To be part of a world where love can reside.

[Pre-Chorus 2]

         Em                  Am            Bm

And the hopes I hold in my careful hands

                     C

(and they don't get out alive)

       D                  Em         Am

and I gave myself to an honest man

              Bm

Who couldn't keep his promises.

[Chorus 2]

 C                   D

Love isn't always fair,

                Em              G

but that's no reason to be so cruel to me.

 Am                   G

Hold on to what is there,

                Em

and count the saints.

                 D

And count the saints,

and count the saints.

[Instrumental]

Em C G Am x4

[Outro Chorus]

 C                   D

Love isn't always fair,

                Em              G

but that's no reason to be so cruel to me.

 Am                   G

Hold on to what is there,

                Em

and count the saints.

                  D

And count the saints,

                  C
