      G (4)

    I sometimes lose my faith in luck

                                                                    Em

    I don't know what I want to be when I grow up

             C                       D (1½)                                             G (½)

    I just count the rain, wearing the floor through the boards again

     

       G (4)

    I wish I could find a soul to steal

                                                                   Em

    I could be the engine, you could be the wheels

                           C                        D (1½)                                        G (½)

    And we could drive it home, and never have to worry about being alone

     

    Chorus:

      C (1½)                    G (½)

    Oooh, I follow my tracks

      D (1½)                                               G (½)

    See all the times I should have turned back

    C (1½)             G (½)

    Oooh, I wept alone

         D (1½)                                    G (½)

    I know what it means to be on my own

    Em (1½)                              C (½)

    Oooh, the things I've have known

       D (1½)                                        G (½)

    Looks like I'm taking the hard way home

    Em (1½)                     C (½)     

    Oooh, the seeds I've sown

    D (1½)                             G (½)

         Taking the hard way home

    D (1½)                             G (½)

         Taking the hard way home

     

        G (4)

    I never did learn how to follow the rules

                                                                             Em

    I never was good at sleeping while the moon was full

             C                    D (1½)                                      G (½)

    I just lie and burn, wreck my mind while the planet turns

     

      G (4)

    I sometimes wish I could start again

                                                                    Em

    I'd try and do the right thing every now and then

           C                D (1½)                                             G (½)

    I'd step in line, that's what I'd do if I could turn back time

     

    Chorus

     

    / G - - - / x4

    / Em - - - / C - - - / D - - - / - - G - /

     

          G (4)

    I tell you how I want to live

                                                               Em

    Forget about the take, forget about the give

                     C                    D (1½)                                      G (½)

    I want to leave this town, fake my death and never be found

     

    Chorus

     

    Repeat 1st Verse

     

    Outro Chorus:

    Em (1½)                              C (½)

    Oooh, the things I've have known

       D (1½)                                        G (½)

    Looks like I'm taking the hard way home

    Em (1½)                     C (½)     

    Oooh, the seeds I've sown

    D (1½)                             G (½)

         Taking the hard way home

    D (1½)                             G (½)

         Taking the hard way home

    D (1½)                             G (hold)

         Taking the hard way home
