Play | Am C | F E | for this song in 4/4 time the whole way through. Faster harder strum for chorus.

Kissing leads to touching
And touching leads to nothing
But nothing could be more
In this moment in this war

We pick our battles
We pick our fights
Well im pickin you
And I pick tonight

So lift me up but dont let go
The fall is much too far you know
With broken legs I cannot walk beside you
With a broken heart I cannot live without you

My troops are moving
Gaining ground
There moving slowly
Not a sound

Oh, Now your surrounded
In my arms
Im slipping past
Those final alarms

So lift me up into the light
If we hold tightly we just might
With broken legs I cannot walk beside you
With a broken heart I cannot live without you

"And above all, respond to all questions regarding a given song's tonal orientation in the following manner: Hell, it don't matter just kick it off!"

Hey Dneck
I like the song...but (here comes my opinion)

Instead of.....But nothing could be more.
How about...But nothing could mean more.

and then..
We pick our battles
We pick our fights
Well im pickin you
And I pick tonight

maybe....
We pick our battles
We pick our fights
Well I'm pickin' you
for some peace tonight

or something along that line.

there's more...
Oh, Now your surrounded
In my arms
Im slipping past
Those final alarms

how about.....
Now you're surrounded
by my arms
I'm slipping past
I hear no alarms

Honestly, I love the song
