    Gmaj7   G7   Cmaj7   Baug

    I waited 'til I saw the sun

    Em7             A7      D7sus4     G
    I don't know why I didn't come

    Gmaj7    G7      Cmaj7      Baug
    I left you by the house of fun

    Em7             A7    D7sus4       G
    I don't know why I didn't come

    Em7             A7    D7sus4       G
    I don't know why I didn't come

    Gmaj7   G7       Cmaj7      Baug
    When I saw the break of day

    Em7             A7       D7sus4     G
    I wished that I could fly away

    Gmaj7       G7       Cmaj7      Baug
    Instead of kneeling in the sand

    Em7         A7       D7sus4       G
    Catching teardrops in my hand

         Em7      A7              D7
    My heart is drenched in wine

           Em7      A7       D7
    But you'll be on my mind forever

    Gmaj7 G7       Cmaj7      Baug
    Out across the endless sea

    Em7      A7    D7sus4     G
    I would die in ecstasy

    Gmaj7 G7  Cmaj7          Baug
    But I'll be a bag of bones

    Em7      A7    D7sus4         G
    Driving down the road alone

    Chorus

     

    Gmaj7       G7     Cmaj7          Baug
    Something has to make you run

    Em7              A7    D7sus4     G
    I don't know why I didn't come

    Gmaj7       G7     Cmaj7          Baug
    I feel as empty as a drum

    Em7              A7    D7sus4     G
    I don't know why I didn't come
    Em7              A7    D7sus4     G
    I don't know why I didn't come
    Em7              A7    D7sus4     G
    I don't know why I didn't come
