   Am          A*          C  (Var here)        Am           G        C* -     C

That is the basic picking pattern for the verses, it remains much the same through the song allthough chord order changes, and a pattern also needs to be applied to a F chord and also a Dm chord. 


     Am          A*                    C
I've hardly been outside this room in days,
               Am          G                      C* - C
'cause I don't feel that I deserve the sunshine's rays.
     Am                      A*             C
The darkness helps until the whiskey wears away,
                Am          G                C* - C
And it's then I realize the conscience never fades.
            Am             A*                 C
When you're young you have this image of your life:
               Am             A*                  C
That you'll be scrupulous and one day even make a wife.
             Am               A*             C
And you make boundaries you'd never dream to cross,
           Am            G               C* - C
And if you happen to you wake completely lost.
           F         G       Am
But I will fight for you, be sure that
       F                     Am          G*   F    G
I will fight until we're the special two once aga--in.




Am                 A2                    C
When we could only need each other, we'd breathe together,
    F                  Am             G
Our hands would not be taught to hold another's,
             C*          C
When we were the special two.
       Am         A2                   C
And we could only see each other, we'd breathe together,
      F                Am             G
These arms will not be taught to need another,
                      C* - C
And we're the special two

    Am             A2               C* C
I remember someone old once said to me:
               Am               G              C* C   
That lies will lock you up with truth the only key."
          Am              A2              C* C
But I was comfortable and warm inside my shell,
             Am                   G              C* C
And couldn't see this place would soon become my hell.
                   Am               A2                C* C
So is it better to tell and hurt or lie to save their face?
                 Am        G                  C#     C
Well I guess the answer is don't do it in the first place.
               Am                A2                   C* C
I know I'm not deserving of your trust from you right now,
          Am                     G                         
But if by chance you change your mind you know I will not
C       F                       Am         G             F   G
Let you down 'cause we were the special two, and will be again.





Am               A2                     C
And we will only need each other, we'll breathe together,
    F                 Am             G
Our hands will not be taught to hold another's,
               C*      C
When we're the special two.
Am                A2                   C
And we could only see each other we'll breathe together,
F                      Am             G                     F               G
These arms will not be taught to need another, and we're the special two




       Dm                G           Am
I step outside my mind's eye's for a minute.
                Dm               G
And I look over me like a doctor looking for disease,
Am
Or something that could ease the pain.
             Dm             G    Am             F
But nothing cures the hurt you, you bring on by yourself,
                   G                      C   G        
Just remembering, just remembering how we were...



Am               A2                     C
And we will only need each other, we'll breathe together,
    F                 Am             G
Our hands will not be taught to hold another's,
               C*      C
When we're the special two.
Am                A2                   C
And we could only see each other we'll breathe together,
F                      Am             G                     C*             C
These arms will not be taught to need another, and we're the special two
