Intro: A,F#m,D,A,E 

Verse:
A
Time of day I can't recall, 
                                   F#m
the kind of thing that takes its toll. 
                      
Over years and over time, 
                      D
over smiles and over wine. 
                       A
All in all it wasn't bad, 
                       E
all in all it wasn't good, 
              E7 
but I still care. 

A
That's the problem with the days 
                              F#m
they're never long enough to say, 

what it is you never said, 
                          D
all the books you never read. 
                         A
I throw myself into the wind 
                       E
hoping somebody might pick me up 
                E7 
and carry me again. 

Chorus
A              F#m
Where are you now? 
             D
you let me down? 
                A           E
Do you make me grieve for you? 
A               F#m
Do I make you proud?
               D
Do you get me now?
          A         E(strum)
Am I your pride and joy?

Verse 2
A
I believe this to be true 
                                 F#m
there’s nothing sacred, nothing new. 
                            
No one tells you when its time. 
                              D
There are no warnings, only signs. 
                          A
Then you know that you're alone, 
                         E
you're not a child anymore, 
                   E7 
but you're still scared. 

A
All your mountains turn to rocks. 
                          F#m
All your oceans turn to drops. 

They are nothing like you thought; 
                               D
you can't be something you are not. 
                         A
Life is not a looking glass. 
                          E
Don't get tangled in your past, 
                       E7 
like I am learning not to. 

Chorus
A             F#m
where are you now?
                D
Do you let me down?
                A         E  A
Do you make me grieve for you?

 
A               F#m
Do I make you proud? 
               D
Do you get me now? 
           A        E   A
Am I your pride and joy?

Outro:

Ohhhhhh ahhhhhhhhaahhhhh
A(from above) F#m, F#m5, D,
A, F#m, F#m5, E

Thaks for the chords. The only one that sounds funny is the F#m5...isn't what you've described there 577555 just an Am barre chord? I haven't been playing very long but I can't seem to get that first chord to sound like the recording.

Alright people ... for the most part la33coug has a good tab here. The one thing that is wrong is hard to believe was missed. That chord you call an F#m5 is simply A Power Chord, yep, 5th fret power chord ... thats all. Play that A(bar) chord everywhere you see her F#m5 and you'll be fine. Other than that, good job. (and DONT play the Aminor, there is no Am in this song)
