[intro]

               G      G  C           C         G    G   G7   G7
Well time has told me      you're a rare, rare find
            C   C  Am      Am        D   D   C   C
A troubled cure      for a troubled mind
              G      G  C        C        G    G   G7   G7
And time has told me      not to ask for more
            C     C  Am     Am      D      D
Someday our ocean      will find its shore

B                    B             Bb        Bb
  So I'll leave the ways that are making me be
Eb     Eb           A       A
  How I really don't wanna be
B                B             Bb        Bb
 I'll leave the ways that are making me love
Eb       Eb           A       D   C   C
  What I really don't wanna love

Time has told me you came with the dawn
A soul with no footprint, a rose with no thorn
Your tears they tell me there's really no way
Of ending your troubles with things you can say [use chords from line 2]
And time will tell you to stay by my side
To keep on trying 'til there's no more to hide

So leave the ways that are making you be what you really don't want to be
Leave the ways that are making you love what you really don't want to love

And time has told me that you're a rare, rare find
A troubled cure for a troubled mind
And time has told me not to ask for more
Someday our ocean will find its shore
C   C   G.
[ending]
