i learned.. to swim all by myself..
C#                   -Fm      F#
too young.. to never ask for help..

     A#m          G#
from then 'til forever
         C#                 F#
it's the cold that keeps me warm..
   G#
at night..

[Reff:]
          C#         F
cause the blue of my mother
    A#m            F#
has always been my color
    C#          F
the love that i offer
   A#m             F#
is deep and out of tune..

        C#                G#
but you hold me cause you know me
F              A#m
all that i can do
  -F#     C#      F        A#m  F#
is turn a lighter shade of blue..
