Song lyrics with chords

[PLAY INSTRUMENTAL HAND PICKED INTRO]

D7*
Why does it seem so strange

     Cadd9    D A7sus4  A#*
that I  would be

a part of you

[PLAY INSTRUMENTAL STRUMMED INTRO]

   G*             D/F#*     Em   11   12
It doesn’t take a genius to see
     Am
that I'm a part of you
    C                 15   16
and you are a part of me

G*       D/F#*                   Em
Why be a raindrop when you could be
  Am          C                    G*
a wave diving into the arms of the sea

iiii iiii iiii iiii iiii iii iii iiii

G*       D/F#*                   Em
Why be a teardrop when you could be
Am          C
hope in the hearts
                      G*
of those trying to be free

iiii iiii iiii iiii iiii iii iii iiii

[PLAY INSTRUMENTAL ENDING]

    G*                 D/F#*       Em
I'd rather give it all than try to be
    Am        C                       G*
the very last leaf to fall off of the tree

iiii iiii iiii iiii iiii iii iii iiii 

  G*            032033          
A sunset by the sea

     D/F#*          Em
is a sunrise in the mountains

   Am             C
an end's just a beginning

                   G*
that's waiting for you

[REPEAT ALL ONCE FROM TOP
THEN PROCEED TO END BELOW]
