    Intro: Progression x2


    Verse 1:

    It must be your skin I'm sinking in
    must be for real ‘cuz now I can feel
    and I didn't mind
    it's not my kind
    It’s not my time to wonder why
    Everything gone white
    and everything's gray
    Now you're here now you're away
    I don't want this--remember that
    I'll never forget where you're at
    Don’t let the days go by


    Chorus 1:
              F5   C5 (½)   Bb5 (½)
              F5   C5 (½)   Bb5 (½)

    Verse 2:

    I'm never alone
    I'm alone all the time
    are you at one
    or do you lie
    we live in a wheel
    where everyone steals
    but when we rise it's like strawberry fields

    If I treated you bad
    you bruise my face
    couldn't love you more
    you got a beautiful taste

    Don't let the days go by
    could have been easier on you
    I couldn't change though I wanted to
    Should have been easier by three
    our old friend fear and you and me


    Chorus 2:

    F5   C5 (½)   Bb5 (½)
              F5   C5
    (½)   Bb5 (½)
    Glycerine                          Glycerine

    Resume Verse Progression:
    Don't let the days go by
    Don't let the days go by



    Verse Progression x3


    D5                 Bb5

         Bad moon white again

    D5                  Bb5 (3)

          Bad moon white again  As she falls around me


    Verse 3:
    I needed you more
    when we wanted us less
    I could not kiss just regress
    It might just be
    clear simple and plain
    That's just fine, that's just one of my names
    don't let the days go by
    could've been easier on you, you, you

    Chorus 3 (repeat 4x):

              F5   C5 (½)   Bb5 (½)


    End on F
