       C

    I never knew

        Em (½)             G (½)                  C

    I never knew that everything was falling through

            Em (½)         G (½)                  C

    That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue

          Em (½)   G (½)               Am (½)  G (½)     D

    To turn and run when all I needed was the truth

                                   C

    But that's how it's got to be

           Em (½)              G (½)                    C

    It's coming down to nothing more than apathy

         Em (½)           G (½)                  C

    I'd rather run the other way than stay and see

            Em (½)        G (½)        Am (½)    G (½)     D

    The smoke and who's still standing when it clears

     

    Chorus:

    C (½)   G (½)   Em (½)     G (½)

    Everyone    knows  I'm in

        C (½)     G (½)   Em (½)  D (½)

    Over my head, over my head

            C (½)      G (½)          Em (½)  G (½)

    With eight seconds left in overtime

            C (½)        G (½)        Em (½)  D (½)

    She's on your mind, she's on      your

      C     Em (½)    G (½)

    mind

     

    C     Em (½)    G (½)

     

    Verse 2:

             C

    Let's rearrange

        Em (½)               G (½)                C

    I wish you were a stranger I could disengage

          Em (½)           G (½)                  C

    To say that we agree and then never change

          Em (½)   G (½)          Am (½)  G (½)   D

    Soften a      bit until we all just get    along

                C

    But that's disregard

           Em (½)          G (½)                C

    You find another friend and you discard

               Em (½)            G (½)       C

    As you lose the argument in a cable car

           Em (½)  G (½)            Am (½)  G (½)          D

    Hanging    above as the canyon   comes between

     

    Chorus x2

     

    Bridge (hold each chord):

            C                 Em (½)        G (½)      C

    And suddenly I become a part of your past

              Em (½)        G (½)       C

    I'm becoming the part that don't last

          Em (½)   G (½)         Am (2)

    I'm losing   you and it's effortless

     

           C                       

    Without a sound

           Em (½)                G (½)              C   

    we lose sight of the ground in the throw around

               Em (½)                G (½)        C

    Never thought that you wanted to bring it down

              Em (½)     G (½)          Am (2)

    I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves

     

     

    Bridge 2:

    G               G/F#

    Everyone knows I'm in

        Em7               C

    Over my head, over my head

             C (½)     G (½)          Em (½)   G (½)

    With eight seconds left in over  -  time

             C (½)       G (½)         Em (½)   G (½)

    She's on your mind, she's on        your

     C (½)     G (½)      Em (½)   G (½)

    mind...                           Everyone

    C (½)     G (½)      Em (½)   G (½)

    knows...   she's on your

    C (½)     G (½)      Em (½)                    G (½)

    mind...              Everyone knows I'm in over my

    C (½)             G (½)      Em (½)     G (½)

    head  I'm in over my head   I'm over my...

     

    Chorus

     

    C     Em (½)    G (½)  x4

     

    End on C
