Am             Em                F 
My precious wife, I am in shambles 
I am crumbling, I am 

Am                 Em 
Was it something I did 
Bid the tide to climb so high that it ripped our shore up 

Am          Em 
I can fix it, I swear 
If you trust me 
       Am         Em               F 
I am old and I am rusting but I care 
I care 

Am  Em  F 

(same chords as previous verse) 

My precious wife, we made a promise 
Pledged our flesh to be one 
How can you doubt a love that stood so proud as we raised our children 
I believe in it still 
It has faltered and it has faded 
But I know it's there 
It's there 

And how'd it change 
The way you thought of me 
How strange to think we once were lovers 
Am                    Em 
Now we've wrapped the past up in broken glass 
F                              Am 
And when you speak my name you shudder 
               Em                     F 
My precious wife, believe I'll save this 

I'll revive it, I will 
Am            Em               F 
We've built a family from this marriage 
Why would you tear it apart? 

Am  Em F (2x) 

Speak now, precious 
Your silence screams 

You're giving in to your failure 
C                                                        Em 
Hear me, the promise that you made was meant to keep forever 
                         E                      Am 
Until we die, you're not allowed to change your mind 

Oh husband, I could not control it 
Husband, I could not abstain 
One cannot stop the wind from blowing 
Em    E 
Nor refuse the falling rain 
Love stirred up a storm inside me 
Wrapped its arms around my waist 
C            Em               E 
I failed you dear, I'm sorry, oh I'm sorry 
But there was nothing I could do 
No, there was nothing I could do 
Sure as the rain will fall 
Em             E 
Some love just fails 

There was nothing I could do 
There was nothing I could do 
There was nothing I could do 
Em        E               Am 
There was nothing I could do
