Hiding Inside Myself

by: Kenny Rankin

[C                          Em-A]
I've been so alone all my life
[  Dm(7)             G         C   G]
I couldn't give my heart to anyone
[C                       Em Asus A]
Hiding in myself was a man
[      Dm(7)       G          C   G]
Who needed to be held like anyone
[     C]
The days moved into years
[             Em                Asus, A]
I looked for walk between the tears
[                F     Am]
It never ever found me
[           Dm    AbM7,G7]
Never ever found me.
[ C                           Em    Asus A]
Yes I did seem to grab it's strands
[    Dm    Em     F             G  Bb/C]
But they surely broke all the time


((CHORUS:))
[     F          G/F    Em       A7]
So I hid inside till almost died
[     F         G         Bb/C]
Yes I hid inside and I cried
[    F         G        C      G/B,Am,G]
A loving heart in a sensitive man
[F      C/E   Dm G  Ab-G]
Hiding inside myself.

[C                     Em   Asus, A]
Then you came out of nowhere
[F                      C    G]
I could not believe my heart
[C             G/B - Am       G]
I didn't know how -- to tell you
[F              G             Bb/G-Bb/C]
I didn't know where to start.

((CHORUS 2:))
[           F            G/F-Em     A7]
And when I hid inside I almost died
[     F         G           Bb/C]
Oh I hid inside and I cried
[    Dm7        G       Em      A7]
A loving heart in a sensitive man
[Dm     Em    F-G      Ab-Fm]
I know you understand.

((CODA:)) [Ab-Bb-Ab-G-C-]

 I love you
