Painting Pictures Of Egypt

	  		
Intro: Em D G C (2x) 

                Em 
I don't want to leave here 
   D             G 
I don't want to stay 
              Em 
It feels like pinching to me 
D       G 
Either way 
        C 
And the places I long for the most 
         G 
Are the places where I've been 
          Am 
They are calling out to me 
        D 
Like a long lost friend 
                Em 
It's not about losing faith 
     D          G 
It's not about trust 
                Em 
It's all about comfortable 
          D      G 
When you move so much 
        C 
And the place I was wasn't perfect 
            G 
But I had found a way to live 
        Am 
And it wasn't milk or honey 
          D 
But then neither is this 


            C                  G 
I've been painting pictures of Egypt, 
           C                  D 
I've been leaving out what it lacks 
    C               G 
The future feels so hard, 
               D 
And I wanna go back! 
         C                   G 
But the places that used to fit me, 
       C                     Em 
Cannot hold the things I've learned 
      Am 
Those roads were closed off to me 
D                     Em D G C (2x) 
While my back was turned! 
        

               Em 
The past is so tangible 
  D          G 
I know it by heart 
Em                        D 
Familiar things are never easy 
G 
To discard 
       C 
I was dying for some freedom 
          G 
But now I hesitate to go 
      Am 
I am caught between the Promise 
         D 
And the things I know 


            C                  G 
I've been painting pictures of Egypt, 
           C                  D 
I've been leaving out what it lacks 
    C               G 
The future feels so hard, 
               D 
And I wanna go back! 
         C                   G 
But the places that used to fit me, 
       C                     Em 
Cannot hold the things I've learned 
      Am 
Those roads were closed off to me 
D                     Em D G C (2x) 
While my back was turned! 
        
            
      Em 
If it comes to quick 
   D        G 
I may not appreciate it 
             Em           D                 Am 
Is that the reason behind all this time and sand? 
          Em 
And if it comes to quick 
   D      G 
I may not recognize it 
            Em             D                Am 
Is that the reason behind all this time and sand?
