Original Key: C


Verse 1:
       Am7   Gsus4   Fsus2
I have tried   my    very best,
          C(no3rd)       Gsus4
I've been holding on for dear life.
     Am7  Gsus4     Fsus2
Far away   in   the wilderness,
          C(no3rd)      Gsus4
Kissed my innocence goodbye.
Dm    Aaug5/C♯   F/C             G7/D
Empty handed,    all alone and stranded
     C         C/B♭     F2/A
I came to the end of my hope,
Fm6/A♭
   And now I know.
Chorus:
                     C        Em7
If it wasn't for the letting go,
                    Am7      F
If it wasn't for the giving up,
             C         Em7
I wouldn't have anything at all
            Am7    Fsus2
To call my own.
Chorus 2:
                   C           Em7
If it wasn't for the promise made
                   Am7          F
If it wasn't for the love You gave
                  C         Em7
I wouldn't have anything at all
            Am7
To call my own.
Verse 2:
       Am7   Gsus4    Fsus2
Every dream   I       left behind,
         C(no3rd)             Gsus4
Could it come back to me once more?
          Am7   Gsus4    Fsus2
Could the age    of      innocence
     C(no3rd)        Gsus4
Ever really be restored?
Dm      Aaug5/C♯   F/C      G7/D
Full forgiveness,  unconditional love
        C          C/B♭     F2/A
Has found me and brought me back home,
Fm6/A♭
   And now I know. 
Tag:
    A♭
And how can I say thank You,
Words are not enough;
Fm
All that's left for me to do i
                               C  Em7  Am7  F
Is totally surrender to Your love.
C  Em7  Am7  F 
C  Em7  Am7  F 
C  Em7  Am7  A♭ C

I have tried my very best
I've been holding on for dear life
Far away in the wilderness, kissed my innocence goodbye
Empty handed, all alone and stranded
I came to the end of my hope
And now I know
 
If it wasn't for the letting go
If it wasn't for the giving up
I wouldn't have anything at all to call my own
If it wasn't for Your promise made
If it wasn't for the love You gave
I wouldn't have anyone at all to bring me home

 
Every dream I left behind, could it come back to me once more?
Could the age of innocence ever really be restored?
Full forgiveness, unconditional
Love has found me and brought me back home
And now I know
 
How can I say thank You
Words are not enough
All that's left for me to do is
Totally surrender to Your love
