E
There was a time I knew
               C#m
All that there was to know
             A
No one could tell me then
      E    A E
I was wrong

         E
I wasn't strong enough
                C#m
To see where my weakness lay
                   A
The world that you hold so tight
            E  A E
Could slip away

Chorus 1:
               G#m       A
[And/Yes] from moment to moment
     E              E/A E
Your life can change
          C#m        C#m/B   A
There's a storm over the horizon
   C#m              B7
[A sea no one can   see]/
[The sea you cannot see]/
[A sea you’ll never see]

           E
Somewhere around the bend
               C#m
Right when you least expect
            A
Someone can walk away
          E   A E
With no regret

           E
Leaving an empty space
           C#m
Breaking a sacred trust
            A
All of your shiny dreams
         E   A E
Begin to rust

[Repeat Chorus 1]

Bridge:
         G#m       A
Yes from moment to moment
C#m                     B
Promise me you'll never change
A                          E
Promise me you'll stay the same
C#m                     A      B7
Promise me you'll never change

Adlib: Chords of 1

Chorus 2:
         G#m       A
Yet from moment to moment
     E              E/A E
Your life can change
          C#m            C#m/B     A
There's a light when the sun is rising
  C#m         B7
A day after today

Bridge 2:
C#m                     B
Promise me you'll never change (promise me you'll never change)
A                          E
Promise me you'll stay the same (the same)
C#m                     A      B7
Promise me you'll never change

Interlude:
C#
Every moment is a shining light

Every moment is the darkest night
F*m
Every moment gotta get it right
B7           C#
Every single moment
