C#m	E	B	A

Verse
C#m  B  A
Every face, even the one you saw yesterday
It looks different today
'Cos everything's changed since yesterday
In every possible way
Things seem different today
Not like yesterday

of consideration?
A   C#m  B

Chorus 1
C#m	E	B	A
'Cos you have the world in your arms tonight
C#m	E	B	A
And what if you held the world in your arms?

Verse
C#m  B  A
When you're secure, do you feel much safer?
As days never change, and it's three years later
It's like your life hasn't changed,
And it's three years late, so how does it feel, to be 
three years late? And watching your youth drift away
What seems different, seems 
different today and what seems different, seems 
different today

Pre-Chorus
A   C#m  B
Is consideration
A   C#m  B
More like an exception
A   C#m  B
of consideration?
A   C#m  B

C#m	E	B	A

And what if you held the world in your arms?
