Shane Smith & The Saints Lyrics


            [Intro]
G Dm   Am   C   G
 
 
[Verse]
        Dm
It's a full moon
      Am
It's shining like the truth
     C                            G
And I'm gonna see it through somehow
 
          Dm
It don't feel right
       Am
I was born with good intentions
         C                             G
And I'm begging for your wisdom right now
 
 
[Chorus]
    Dm                       Am
Adeline, I should have been fine by now
          C              G
But I am facing what we had

The repetition of "I should have let you hold me back" emphasizes the depth of the narrator's remorse.

The instrumental section is a great opportunity to explore the depth of the song's emotion, perhaps adding your interpretation while staying true to the song's overall mood. Focus on the sense of longing and reflection in the chorus and outro, making it the emotional climax of your performance.
