D                         Bm
aaron have you ever had a burning in your chest
 (/C#) D                        Bm
  that made you just want to be free
it was a warm afternoon when she asked him this
  as they sat on their shore of the sea
aaron just tugged at his hair and he took
  a very long time to reply
and by the time that he spoke she'd forgotten she asked
  and was lost in the clouds of the sky

        Gsus9                         D/F#
he said kelly i don't think i've ever wanted as much
        Gsus9                     D (/C# /A)
  to be free as i've longed to be known
           Gsus9                     D/F#
and of the things that i hate when i look at my life
      Gsus9       A     Bmadd9  Bm
  the worst is my being alone
        Gsus9       A     D
    the worst is my being alone

the rest of his words he kept from her ears
  'cause he thought she might not understand
and she didn't reply she couldn't figure out how
  'cause the fire in her heart had been fanned
of all the things known that he could have spoken that day
  he chose one from deep down inside
without intending her to he caused her to confess
  her false confidence and how she had lied

she said aaron i don't think i've ever wanted as much
  to be free as i've longed to be known
and of the things that i hate when i look at my life
  the worst is my being alone

    Gsus9       A     Bmadd9  Bm
the worst is my being alone

BRIDGE:  Gsus9  A      Bmadd9  Bm (~8x?)
         Gsus9         B7
         Em     D/F#*  G

   Em               D/F#*                         G
as they headed home neither of them could speak a word
and they held their own spirits to blame
           Em                     D/F#*
but at the pulse of the wave they both turned around
         Gsus9       A             Bm   D
thinking someone was calling their name
  Gsus9       A             Bm    D
  someone was calling their name

Bm  Bm/G  Bm/E  /B

If you want to play it on guitar i would do it capo 2 with these chord fingerings
(note that they're NOT named relative to the capo, since i wanted to list the actual
chords for piano) also, if the fact that i didn't break up the lyrics into shorter
lines causes problems for you, email me and maybe i'll fix it, though i personally
prefer it this way, just set the font size small enough, and if you're going to print
it, put it in a word processor, make the margins small and erase this paragraph and it
ought to fit on one page, which is nice.
