    D                 G                C (2)

    Look to the clock on the wall

    C                    G           D (2)

    Hands hardly moving at all

        D                     G          C (2)

    I can't stand the state I'm in

       C             G                   D (2)

    Drown my sorrows same way

    Time, time, tickin on me      Alone is the last place I wanted to be

    C         D           Em (2)                   C         D            Repeat Intro

    Lord what can I say            Oh, Lord, what can I say

     

      D             G                 C (2)

    How many rules can I break

      C             G              D (2)

    How many lies can I make

      D              G                 C (2)

    How many roads must I turn

    To find me a place where the bridge hasn't burned
