Track Name: Losing Altitude
Losing Altitude
W&M by Matthew R Stewart © 2012
Capo 4
D: X5403X
Cmaj7: X32000

Verse 1: Em Cmaj7 G D
Life is choices
I've been makin' some bad ones lately
Spit in your face
Then I wonder just why you hate me
How 'bout humility in my daily conversation
When's the last time I asked you what's truly goin' on?
Only think about what I'm doin'
Don't care what you're goin' through
G D/F# Cmaj7
And maybe it's my fault
G D/F# Cmaj7
Well I know that it's my fault

Chorus: G D Em Cmaj7
But I'm comin' down
I'm comin back to you
Hittin' the ground
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
Comin' down
I'm comin' back to you
Hittin' the ground
Cmaj7
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
Cmaj7
And I can't stand to lose you again

Verse 2: Em Cmaj7 G D
Caught in a snare
Bad habits that keep on breakin'
Your poor heart can't
Handle all of the stress it's takin'
Only think about what I'm doin'
Don't care what you're goin' through
G D/F# Cmaj7
And maybe it's my fault
G D/F# Cmaj7
Well of course it's all my fault

Chorus: G D Em Cmaj7
But I'm comin' down
I'm comin' back to you
Hittin' the ground
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
Comin' down
I'm comin' back to you
Hittin' the ground
Cmaj7
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
Cmaj7
And I can't stand to lose you again

La da da, la da da da da, la da da

Cmaj7
'Cause I don't wanna lose you
Cmaj7
And I can't stand to lose you
Cmaj7
And I promise I won't lose you again

'Cause I don't wanna lose you
And I can't stand to lose you
And I promise I won't lose you again

Capo 6

VERSE 1: Am C Em F
Lights go out, can’t be stopped
I’m about to get rocked and hit the bottom again
I’ve been so unimpressed with this life
I don’t know, I don’t know just where to begin

I need lows, I need highs, I need more in my life
I need more, if nothing else I need
Time to become who I’m trying to be
And maybe in time I hope that you’ll see

CHORUS: Am C Em F
It’s still me, I’m still here
I’m still full of the same old fears
So rock me, please rock me tonight
And don’t turn out the light

VERSE 2: Am C Em F
When did we start to run from the truth
Like we couldn’t be found, like we’re bulletproof?
Can’t get enough out of life so we add what we like
But we still, yeah we still feel empty inside
But you know, yeah you know what to do
But you act, yeah you act like you don’t have a clue
But it’s all plain to see, yeah it’s no mystery
But there’s no going back, and I’m so glad

CHORUS 2: Am C Em F
I’m still me, I’m still here
I’m still full of the same old fears
So hold me, please hold me tonight
And don’t turn out the light

Don’t turn out the light

Capo 6
Intro: Picking C Em Am G x2

VERSE 1
Speak Lord, and let me listen to your word
The timbre of your voice is the sweetest I have heard
Shine Lord, and let me sit here in your light
The depth of my weakness is made perfect in your might


VERSE 2
Move Lord, and draw me to your side
Fill me with the thoughts and cares that burden your own mind
C Em Am F
Take this world, and make it yours
C Em Am F G
Make me less and make you more, ‘cause

CHORUS:
C Em
My heart’s too weak to carry all the burdens of this world and
Am F
My hands too tired and weary, I’m just a simple man, a simple man
C Em
So fill this empty person with love beyond compare
Am F G
If only I could listen, if only I could listen
the treasure I’d find there

TAG
How…you…love…me
I…will…never know

Capo 8
INTRO F / / x2
F 133000 C 332010

VERSE 1 C Em Am F
Can’t sleep, eat, think or breathe
Can’t talk about it
I try, but the circles in my head run all around it
Can’t see the end of this attraction
Can’t seem to keep myself from asking

CHORUS
After all of this, how could it all end up the same?
We went in opposite directions from the one we tried to blame
Letters in the doorway, flowers in her hair
Bittersweet reminders of things, things, things
No longer there

VERSE 2
I hear the sound of your voice
In conversations
I look, but it’s only in my imagination
Can’t see the end of this addiction
Can’t seem to keep myself from thinkin’

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I’m picking up the pieces, from the mess you left inside
The gardens that you planted
Have all died

After all of this, how could it all end up the same?
We went in opposite directions from the one we tried to blame
Letters in the doorway, flowers in her hair
Bittersweet reminders of things no longer there
