[INTRO]
[CHORUS]
  Dm          Bb
A drop in the ocean
    F            C
A change in the weather
       Dm          Bb              F           C
I was praying that you and me might end up together
            Dm          Bb        F           C
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
           Dm         Bb        F            C           Bb
But I'm holding you closer than most 'cause you are my heaven

[INSTRUMENTAL] Bb F C Dm Bb F C

[VERSE]
           Bb                F
I don't wanna waste the weekend
C              Dm
If you don't love me pretend
   Bb            F                C
A few more hours then it's time to go
         Bb                  F
As my train rolls down the east coast 
C                 Dm
I wonder how you keep warm
          Bb
It's too late to cry
F              C
Too broken to move on

[PRE-CHORUS]
         Gm        F       C
And still I can't let you be
Gm         F         C
Most nights I hardly sleep
Gm         F       C              Bb
Don't take what you don't need from me

[CHORUS]
              Dm         Bb
It's just a drop in the ocean
   F              C
A change in the weather
      Dm           Bb                F          C
I was praying that you and me might end up together
          Dm            Bb        F            C
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
           Dm          Bb        F           C          Bb
But I'm holding you closer than most 'cause you are my heaven

[INSTRUMENTAL] Bb F C Dm Bb F C

[VERSE]
Bb                F
Misplaced trust in old friends
C                Dm
Never counting regrets
          Bb       F            C
By the grace of God I do not rest at all
        Bb                 F
And New England as the leaves change
C                     Dm
The last excuse that I'll claim
         Bb          F                  C
I was a boy who loved a woman like a little girl

[PRE-CHORUS]
         Gm        F       C
And still I can't let you be
Gm         F         C
Most nights I hardly sleep
Gm         F       C              Bb
Don't take what you don't need from me

[CHORUS]
              Dm         Bb
It's just a drop in the ocean
   F              C
A change in the weather
      Dm           Bb                F          C
I was praying that you and me might end up together
          Dm            Bb        F            C
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
           Dm          Bb        F           C          Bb
But I'm holding you closer than most 'cause you are my heaven

[INSTRUMENTAL] Bb F C Dm Bb F C

[BRIDGE]
Gm                F       C
Heaven doesn't seem far away anymore
Bb              F        C
Heaven doesn't seem far away
Gm                F       C
Heaven doesn't seem far away anymore
Bb              F        C
Heaven doesn't seem far away

[INSTRUMENTAL] Gm F C x2

[CHORUS]
              Dm         Bb
It's just a drop in the ocean
   F              C
A change in the weather
      Dm           Bb                F          C
I was praying that you and me might end up together
          Dm            Bb        F            C
It's like wishing for rain as I stand in the desert
           Dm          Bb        F           C          Bb
But I'm holding you closer than most 'cause you are my heaven
