G       C       F      C
now the parking lot is empty
C    G          F/d
everyone's gone someplace
G          C             F          C
i pick you up and in the trunk i've packed
  B                    F   G
a cooler and a two-day suitcase
G               C        F       C
cause there's a place we like to drive
        G      F/d
way out in the country
G          C          F                C
five miles out of the city limit we're singing
         B              F    G
and your hand's upon my knee
 
CHORUS:
         C           C7
so we're okay, we're fine
          F                 G
baby, i'm here to stop your crying
              C                C7
chase all the ghosts from your head
                      F                    G   G#
i'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed
am                               (G)   F
smarter than the tricks played on your heart
                     C                 G          am
we'll look at them together then we'll take them apart
              F/d
adding up the total of a love that's true

you know the things that i am afraid of

i'm not afraid to tell
G          C           F   C
and if we ever leave a legacy
             B                F    G
it's that we loved each other well
G                   C          F       C
cause i've seen the shadows of so many people
C             G            F/d
trying on the treasures of youth
G               C                        F     C
but a road that fancy and fast ends in a fatal crash
         B                 F            G
and i'm glad we got off to tell you the truth

baby, i'm here to stop your crying

chase all the ghosts from your head
                      F                    G   G#
i'm stronger than the monster beneath your bed
am                               (G)   F
smarter than the tricks played on your heart
                     C                 G          am
we'll look at them together then we'll take them apart

adding up the total of a love that's true

i took us for better and i took us for worse

and don't you ever forget
G         C            F        C
the steel bars between me and a promise
C        G         F/d
