Intro - C, G, Dsus/F#, Em repeat once

Verse 1 -

C           G             Dsus/F#     Em
I'm not sure why it always goes downhill
C         G           Dsus/F#         Em
Why broken cisterns never could stay filled

I've spent

Chorus -

C             G       Dsus/F#     Em
Ten years singing gravity away
        C              G               D/F#    Em
But the water keeps on falling from the sky

Verse 2 -

C              G           Dsus/F#               Em
So here tonight while the stars are blacking out
C           G                  Dsus/F#           Em
With every hope and dream I've ever had in doubt

I've spent

Chorus -

C       G             Dsus/F#          Em
Ten years trying to sing these doubts away
        C              G               D/F#
But the water keeps on falling from my eyes
   C       G       Dsus/F#    Em
And heaven knows, heaven knows
     C            G            D/F#
I tried to find a cure for the pain
C       G          Dsus/F#      Em
Oh my Lord, to suffer like you do
 C            G    Dsus/F#   C   
Dsus/F#, C, G, Dsus/F#
It would be a lie to run away

Verse 3 -

C           G
So blood is fire

Dsus/F#              Em
pulsing through our veins
C            G          Dsus/F#          Em
We're either riders, or fools behind the reigns

I've spent

Chorus -
C       G             Dsus/F#          Em
Ten years trying to sing it all away
        C              G               D/F#
But the water keeps on falling from my tries
   C       G       Dsus/F#    Em
And heaven knows, heaven knows
     C            G            D/F#
I tried to find a cure for the pain
C       G          Dsus/F#      Em
Oh my Lord, to suffer like you do
 C            G    Dsus/F#   C
It would be a lie to run away
 C            G    Dsus/F#   C
It would be a lie
C             G      Dsus/F#
It would be a lie to run away

Bridge -
C           G
It keeps on falling
Dsus/F#     Em
It keeps on falling
C           G
It keeps on falling
Dsus/F#     Em
It keeps on falling
        C              G               D/F#
And the water keeps on falling from my eyes

End -

C       G       Dsus/F#    Em
And heaven knows, heaven knows
     C            G            D/F#
I tried to find a cure for the pain
C       G          Dsus/F#      Em
Oh my Lord, to suffer like you do
 C            G    Dsus/F#   C  G  
C
It would be a lie to run away
 C            G    Dsus/F#   C
It would be a lie to run away
C            G    Dsus/F#   C  G  DsusF#  (Don't know last chord that it ends on)
It would be a lie to run away

* Repeat intro * x1

About the artist behind The Cure For Pain:

Jonathan Mark Foreman (born October 22, 1976) is the lead singer, guitarist, and co-founder of the alternative rock band Switchfoot. He started Switchfoot in 1996 with drummer Chad Butler and his brother Tim on bass. He writes or co-writes the music for all of Switchfoot's songs.

Foreman was born in San Bernardino County, California, but his family then moved to Massachusetts and Virginia Beach during his childhood. After moving to Encinitas in North County San Diego in his junior high years, he went to Torrey Pines High School in Carmel Valley, California, and he became fast friends with Todd Cooper who encouraged him to learn guitar. [1] Cooper was later a guitar tech for Switchfoot, eventually leaving in 2005 to pursue his own musical career. Foreman attended UC San Diego and later dropped out to follow his singing career.
