Capo 3

Intro: Am

         Am
I used to write
                C/G       F               C
I used to write letters I used to sign my name
          Am
I used to sleep at night
                    C/G            F          C
Before the flashing lights settled deep in my brain

                   Am
But by the time we met
               C/G     F                 C
By the time we met the times had already changed

Am C/G F C

                   Am
So I never wrote a letter
                C/G          F              C
I never took my true heart I never wrote it down
                       Am
So when the lights cut out
           C/G             F          C
I was lost standing in the wilderness downtown

Bridge:
D5                C        Am
Now our lives are changing fast
D5                C        Am
Now our lives are changing fast
G                   Em       D5
Hope that something pure can last
G                   Em       D5
Hope that something pure can last

       Am
But it seems strange
               C/G      F           C
How we used to wait for letters to arrive
                    Am
But what's stranger still
                    C/G       F         C
Is how something so small can keep you alive
           Am
We used to wait
                 C/G        F        C
We used to waste hours just walking around
                Am
We used to wait
                 C/G          F          C
All those wasted lives in the wilderness downtown


Chorus:
Am  C      C/G     Am
    Ooh we used to wait
    C      C/G     F
    Ooh we used to wait
G   C      C/G     Am
    Ooh we used to wait (Sometimes it never came)
    C      C/G     Am
    Ooh we used to wait (Sometimes it never came)
    C      C/G     F           G                  C
    Ooh we used to wait (Still moving through the pain)

    Ooh

          Am
I'm gonna write 
                 C/G         F             C
A letter to my true love I'm gonna sign my name
                    Am
Like a patient on a table
              C/G        F                C
I wanna walk again gonna move through the pain

Bridge:
D5                C        Am
Now our lives are changing fast
D5                C        Am
Now our lives are changing fast
G                   Em       D5
Hope that something pure can last
G                   Em       Am
Hope that something pure can last


Chorus

              Am    C
   we used to wait
              Am    C
   we used to wait
              F    G  C
   we used to wait

Am C Am C F C D5 Am

Am           C           Am            C
  We used to wait for it,   We used to wait for it
F           C                    D5      Am
  Now we're screaming,  sing the chorus again
Am           C           Am            C
  We used to wait for it,   We used to wait for it
F           C                    D5      Am
  Now we're screaming,  sing the chorus againn
Am        C            Am            C
I used to wait for it,     I used to wait for it
F               C                   D5      Am
  Hear my voice screaming, sing the chorus again


Am C Am C F C D5              Am
                 Wait for it
Am C Am C F C D5              Am
                 Wait for it
Am C Am C F C D5              Am
                 Wait for it

Is it just me or does the D5 sound off for this. I could be just me but I don't find it fitting, might be just me though.

Ignore prior statement. It just shows up on the chord diagram incorrectly. IT sounds find. Good job 5*****
