Live version

It's funny. For the last 2 weeks I've been playing around with this song thinking to myself how I'd love to hear JoCo play this. Last week he played it for the first time live, perhaps ever. I had to learn this version and post a transcription. This is very similar to the original with some subtle differences though. At some point I'd love to do a lesson video for this as well if there's demand for it. As usual, let me know if there's anything that needs clarification.

Verse 1

Asus2                                Bm
Only a moment ago we had nothing but time
E                                          F#m
Everything lasted forever and you were all mine
       Bm      E
Only a dream I know
               C#m   F#m
Thinking you’d never go
            Bm          B7
Tearing off pieces of myself
             Esus4 E Eadd9 E
Just for the time it buys me

Chorus

F#m7/C# D        Asus2
Fold my heart up small
   F#m7/C#  D    C#7
Or break it into pieces
Bm                 F#m
Find somewhere and keep it there
G       D    E   Asus2
Take it when you go

Verse 2

Asus2                                               Bm
There in the frame of your face in the cast of your eyes
E                                          F#m
I saw this coming but still I am caught by surprise
            Bm     E
All of this time I knew
            C#m    F#m
That I’d be losing you
             Bm             B7
That doesn’t mean that it’s OK
             Esus4 E  Eadd9 E
That doesn’t mean I’m ready

Chorus 2 into bridge

F#m7/C# D        Asus2
Fold my heart up small
   F#m7/C#  D    C#7
Or break it into pieces
Bm                 F#m
Find somewhere and keep it there
G       D    E   F#m  B7
Take it when you go
         F#m B7
When you go
         Bm Bhalfdim E
When you go

Verse 3

Asus2                                             Bm
Some things we always remember, some things you forget
E                                       F#m
No way to make it up now no room for regret
                   Bm E
That’s no good for anyone
         C#m     F#m
And so I come undone
         Bm               B7
Now I am less than what I was
           Esus4 E Eadd9 E
Whatever’s left is yours now

Chorus

"Cheater Version" as Transcribed by Jerod[edit]

Cheater Version:

Here's a kind of a cheater version of the live version posted above for those of us who aren't as good with exotic chords as JoCo. This isn't an exact transcription, but it's much easier (at least for me) and sounds absolutely fine even when you play it along with the song. As you'll see on the chords list, I've cut down on the number of chords you need to know considerably. Chords marked with a "*" are chords not in the version found above. There are only two "new" chords in here, and the G isn't a "new" chord, just an alternate way of playing a regular "G". But after struggling with the quick change from the F#m to the regular G, I figured that out and it makes it much smoother for me. This is an absolutely beautiful song, definitely one of my favorites, and I hope everyone enjoys this version!

Notes: There's one difference that I can see in the opening figure - the two notes in the T2 part should actually be split between the T2s and the Baris: T2 sings B, Bari sings A.
