Intro:  / G - - / Gsus4 - - / x4

 

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              Em

Sometimes it feels like the wall's closing in

 

Chorus 1:

C    G        D            Em           C         G              D              Em

Oh Lord what can I say       I'm so sad since you went away

  C      G      D              Em       C         G              D                       Em

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

C         D           Repeat Intro

Lord what can I say

 

  D                       G             C (2)

Try and burn my troubles away

   C             G                   D (2)

Drown my sorrows same way

      D                      G                C (2)

It seems no matter how hard I try

      C                      G                      D          Em

It feels like there's something just missing inside

 

Chorus 2:

C    G        D            Em           C         G              D              Em

Oh Lord what can I say       I'm so sad since you went away

  C      G      D              Em       C         G              D                      Em

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

      C              G                      D                Em

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

 

Chorus 2, skip last line

 

Chorus 2

 

Hold last G of Intro
