*THE NAILS ARE GONE* (Lord)


G Em G Em
They say
Em Bm Em Bm
even more so today
Am Cmaj7 Am Cmaj7
All the good things have gone
D Bm D Bm
while the bad seems to stay
G Em G Em
And so
Em Bm Em Bm
maybe more than they show
Am Cmaj7 Am Cmaj7
Good intentions won't change
D Bm D Bm
the mistakes that will grow...

G Em Am D
The nails are gone but the holes still remain
The ones that you love always remember their pain
You've given too much, too much to explain
The nails are gone but the holes still remain.

G Em G Em
So you see
Em Bm Em Bm
though you want it to be
Am Cmaj7 Am Cmaj7
The world doesn't spin
D Bm D Bm
that easily
G Em G Em
But hey
Em Bm Em Bm
in your own special way
Am Cmaj7 Am Cmaj7
You can't change what you've done
D Bm D Bm
'cause it's not yesterday...

G Em Am D
The nails are gone but the holes still remain
You've cleaned up your mess but they can remember the stain
You've given too much, too much to explain
The nails are gone but the holes still remain.

Bridge:
Em G Bm Em
Em G Bm D

G Em Am D
The nails are gone but the holes still remain
The ones that you love always remember their pain
You've given too much, too much to explain
The nails are gone but the holes still remain.
