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
