Intro: / G - - / G6 - - / G - - / G6 - - / x2

 

G              G6                    G   G6

Sidetracked down the middle
          D (3)                   C (4)

Never saw it coming, what a surprise
                  G (2)      Em (2)

It's been a wonder
       G    G6          G   G6

Electricity tells a story

          D (3)                                      Em (2)        C (2)
It's a sound getting near as fear is watching you
                            G (2)      Em (2)

It's watching you close

             G      G6                  G       G6

You can fight it, both arms swinging

     D (3)                  C (4)
Or try to wash it away

                                           G (2)      Em (2)
Or pay up to the echoes of 'okay'

 

Chorus:

        C   Cmaj7   C         Cmaj7
No more,     no more will I see
  D (4)         

you  No more will I see
Am (2)     F (2)                C   Cmaj7   C         Cmaj7

you  No more will I see you

 

/ G - - / - - - / Em - - / - - - /

 

               G     G6                      G   G6
You've schemed more than you have

            D (3)                                                        C (4)
You've borrowed more than you know, Better to steal the crumbs

                                G (2)      Em (2)
It makes it easier to go

       G    G6    G             G6
Paralyzed by conscience

              D (3)                       Em (2)        C (2)                  G (2)      Em (2)
Looking for an opening, Apathy as your vocal cords cut out

 

            G      G6          G     G6
Never thought once to ask

                 D (3)                                         C (4)

how's the temperature? Too busy with the finer points

                                 G (2)      Em (2)
Of each struggle we're after


Chorus

 

Instrumental: / G - - / - - - / - - - / - - - /

                        / D - - / - - - / - - - /

                        / C - - / - - - / - - - / - - - /

                        / G - - / - - - / Em - - / - - - /

 

      G   G6             G          G6
So long since I've seen you

                   D (3)                      C (4)
Haven't we both been living the high life

                        G (2)      Em (2)
It flows on the bottom

Chorus

 

/ C - - / Cmaj7 - - / x6

 

End on C
