INTRO:
Abm C#m Abm
Abm C#m F#
B   Bbm6
Abm C#m F#

  Abm                                    C#m
As I walk through the streets of my new city
   F#                             B
my back feeling much better, I suppose
Bbm6  Abm                      C#m
I've reclaimed the use of my imagination
    F#                               B
for better or for worse, I've yet to know
Bbm6   Abm                              C#m
but I always knew you'd be the one to understand me,
               F#                                B  Bbm6
I guess that's why it took so long to get things right.
Abm
Suddenly I'm lost
       C#m
On my street

On my block
   F#
Oh why, Oh why
   B               E
Oh why haven't you been there for me?
          F#                 B         Bbm6
Can't you see, I'm losing my mind this time?
Abm                C#m
This time it's for real, I can see

F#*     Abm*      Bbm*    C#m*
All the trees are turning red
    F#*     Abm* Bbm*    C#m*   F#*
The beggars near bodegas grin at me
F#*     Abm*      Bbm*    C#m*
I think they want something
  F#*     Abm*      Bbm*    C#m*  F#*
I close my eyes, I tell myself to breathe

       B
and be calm.

Be calm.
           E                          B
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
       Abm          C#m              E	
Well I know that it gets so hard sometimes.
   F#
Be calm.


  Abm                              C#m
I'm scared that everyone is out to get me.
       F#                             B  Bbm6 
"These days before you speak to me you pause."
  Abm                             C#m
"I always see you looking out your window."
    F#                                        B  Bbm6
"After all, you lost your band, you left your mom."
    Abm                       C#m
Now every single crack, every pain that I pass,
     F#                                B  Bbm6
says I should either leave or pick it up
    Abm
But with every single buck I've made
    C#m
I'm saddled with bad luck that came
    F#
the moment I was baptized
                                       F#*
or when I found out one day I'm gonna die
   Abm*	   Bbm* C#*      F#*     Abm*        C#m*
if only I could find my people or my place in life
    F#*       Abm*   Bb*      C#m*
then when they come to 'carolin'
  F#*       Abm*       Bbm*    C#m*
so loud, so bright, the theremin
    F#*  Abm*   Bbm*
will lead us to a chorus
C#m*  F#*     Abm*      Bbm*      C#m*      F#
where we'll all rejoice and sing a song that goes:

      B
Oh be calm.

Be calm.
           E                          B
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
  Abm          C#m              E
I know that it gets so hard sometimes,
   F#
Be calm.
	     B                              Ebm
Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
              Abm
You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
   Abm Bbm* B*       C#m  
and e-very--thing's wrong
        E                C#m
It just gets so hard sometimes
   F#
Be calm.

  Abm      F#    Ebm       C#m
I don't remember much that night,
     B        F#       B       F# F#* Ab* B*
Just walking, thinking fondly of you
 Abm     F#      Ebm      C#m    B
Thinking how the worst is yet to come
F#               B      F#     B
From that street corner came a song
    B* C#m*  Ebm* E*
And I can't remember the man,
   F#                 B Bbm6
The panhandler or his melody.
    Abm     F#          Ebm   C#m    F#
The words exchanged had far exceeded any change I'd given thee. 

      B
Oh be calm.

Be calm.
           E                          B
I know you feel like you are breaking down.
  Abm          C#m              E
I know that it gets so hard sometimes,
   F#
Be calm.
	     B                              Ebm
Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
              Abm
You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
   Abm Bbm B       C#m

Holy ghosts,
            D           A
When do you come out to play?
              D             A
'Cause if the Lord is gonna find me,
                  G       A      D
He'd better start looking today.

A            D
Last week my baby hit the slopes.
                                         A
I spent the weekend setting traps in the road.

I should have been cutting out my eyelids,
                                               D     [riff]
you'll never guess what baby did when she got home.

Oh-oh Na na na na na
       A
Now at least the birds are singing to me,

but what they're trying to say,
        G
I don't know.


(you're beautiful)
                           F#m
I think they come from the cold

(for all your big mistakes)
                           G
I think they come from the cold

(you stayed the same)
                       A
to the city that don't snow.

     D
So I drove until we both broke down.

I was stranded in a border town
              A
believing the motel TV would bring me to safety,

but between MTV and Mr. O'Reilly
             D
I've come to find, that I can't be defined
               A
so I turned it off, now convinced I would cross

Took one last look at the gold
                            D    [riff]
as it shattered on a mountaintop

D      A         	
Now I believe the sun, it's like a symphony.

But what it's trying to play,
        G
I don't know.


(you're beautiful)
                           F#m
I think they come from the cold

(for all your big mistakes)
                           G
I think they come from the cold

(you stayed the same)
                       A
to the city that don't snow.

       D  G  A
C'mon, Holy ghosts
            D    G       A
When do you come out to play?
              D       G     A
'Cause if the Lord is gonna find me,
                  G       A     D
He'd better start looking today.


         G                   D
So I can rise with the river
        G               D
We all float before we sink
               G
We pray for satellites,
           D
Pray for courtesy
            A                         G
I pray that it can climb mountains to me!
          D                G
I say goodbye to the canyon.
       D                G
I will set sail to the streets
              D            G       A
where I don't care to be forgiven
A               G
I want to be forgotten.
         D            G
I don't care to be forgiven
            D                  G
When Lord I only want to be forgotten!

        D        G
Singing oh oh oh na na na
D        G
Oh oh oh
            D        G
I'm Singing oh oh oh na na
A     G
Oh-oh Oh-oh

            D        G
I'm Singing oh oh oh na na na
        D        G
Singing oh oh oh
            D        G
I'm Singing oh oh oh na na
A              G
Oh-oh na na na Oh-oh

         A
Now I receive a call from my family

and what they started to say
           G
brought me home.


(you're beautiful)
                     F#m
They think I'm beautiful

(for all your big mistakes)
                      G    A
They think I'm beautiful

(you're beautiful)
                         D  [riff]
for all my big mistakes. 

for all my big mistakes.

for all my big mistakes.

All the pretty girls on a Saturday night.


     C         G       F
So I call your name, cross my fingers
Am        G         C
uncross the others, hesitate.
      G                                    Dm     G
Oh I don't think straight with nothing to prove.
F                 F* A* G*
I don't wanna say I'm leaving
F* G* C      G         Am
I'll stay until the weekend.
            F                    
And you can take all the things;
F E F
the boxes and rings
        G
and get going.

'Cause I've been waiting for...

C              G          Am        G
All the pretty girls on a Saturday night.
       C               G           Am           G   
Let it be, and come to me with the look in your eyes.
          F        C            Dm            C
Will you break and take all the words from my mouth?
       F              C          Dm         C
I wish all the pretty girls were shaking me down.

     C        G
So I call you out
F                         Am     G       C
Just to feel a little bit better about myself
 G           Dm          G
I do, baby I do, I do, I do

            C
Until their lips start to move,
          G
and their friends wanna talk music
  F                        Fm
I say "I've never heard the tune!"
      C                     G
But I have, I just hate the band
                         Dm   G
'cause they remind me of you.
F                   F*   A*   G*
Every single night ends up the same,
F* G*   C           G         Am             G
I don't say much at all, but I bring up your name.
F         F   E    F
(Over and over and over)

I think it's striking me out.

C              G          Am        G
All the pretty girls on a Saturday night.
       C               G           Am           G   
Let it be, and come to me with the look in your eyes.
          F        C            Dm            C
Will you break and take all the words from my mouth?
       F              C          Dm         C
I wish all the pretty girls were shaking me down.

        C
But not you,
               G              Am           G
you still wear boots and your hair is too long
         C         G                          Am        G
and then this one doesn't want to admit she's fallen in love
    F           C           Dm       C
Oh c'mon, oh c'mon, what's a boy to do
     F              C           Dm         C
When all the pretty girls can't measure to you.

Have you ever wondered about our old nu-metal friends and what became of them?
D                      Em            A
Turns out I saw them a couple of days ago,
           Em            Bm          Em          A
They were laughing and drinking and smoking and singing.
D
C’mon, can you count all the notches in your belt?
           Em                       A  A/B   A/C# D
I'd rather not, let's just say I'm starving myself.

D                
Baby, put your name down on a piece of paper
Em                           A     A/B     A/C# D
I don’t want no savior baby, I just wanna have a good time


D     Em  A     D  D* D* F#* A* 	
Oh-oh oh, Oh-uh oh
D	            Em       A         D
At least I’m not as sad as I used to be


          D
And they said,
  C#m D	          Em
"Hey Nate, yeah it’s been a while,
      A
Are you gonna sing?"
D
I began to smile and I said,
D                        Em              A
"You should’ve seen me a couple of years ago,
       Em           Bm          Em           A
I was laughing and drinking and smoking and singing."


D
C’mon can you count all the loves that didn’t last?
            Em                         D   D* D* F#* A*
It’s such a gas when you bring up the past.
D                                             Em
Baby, put your name down on a piece of paper.
Em
I don’t want no savior baby
A      A/B   A/C#   D
I just wanna get it out.



D     Em  A     D  D* D* F#* A*
Oh-oh oh, Oh-uh oh
D	            Em       A          D
At least I’m not as sad as I used to be

D     Em               A     D D* D* F#* A*
Oh-oh oh, (get it out) Oh-uh oh
D	            Em       A          D
At least I’m not as sad as I used to be

D Em                  A D
     (Just get it out)
D Em A D
D Em A D
D Em A D
D Em A D
D	            Em       A          D
At least I’m not as sad as I used to be

         D                          Em
And they say we would’ve seen you two years ago
       A                    A* Bm* C#* D
Had you stuck around or come out to a show,
     Bm            D       Em
But youth’s taken over by rock and roll,
               A            G            F#m          E
While we were laughing and drinking and smoking and singing....


     D             Em             A               Dsus4 D
So I left, That is it. That’s my life, Nothing is sacred.
        Bm                     Em
I don’t keep friends,I keep acquainted,
A
I’m not a prophet, But I’m here to profit.


       D   Em                   A                Dsus4 D
That’s all, I’m gone! That’s my life, Nothing is sacred.
         Bm                  Em
I don’t fall in love, I just fake it.
         A                    A/B A/C# D
I don’t fall in love. I don’t fall in love.

Just a roman candle, you can wear your sandals
    A                  Abm          F#m Abm
and I'll pour you just one cup of tea.
     A              Abm
Then you can go and rest

you haven't seen my best, so...


E             Abm         C#m         Abm
Just spend an evening with me
E            Abm     C#m              Abm
Just a lazy evening, then you could be leaving
   A                Abm               F#m    Abm
or we could stay and talk until three.
A                 Abm            F#m         Abm
I will think it's magic and I'll hope you'll agree, so...

If we were honest and both wrote a sonnet together

a sandwich with everything on it,

"Give me a chance!"

It's not often that I understand

Never in all of my life
             A                       D
Have I seen eyes as empty as these streets of my city
      D
on a Saturday night,
        E                        A            Abm     D
all the green of your eyes says "Go, leave it all behind."


            D                      E
But I don't need to be reminded a change is gonna come.
      D                           E
I can feel it on the tip of your tongue.


    A                         D         A
And I feel alive, feel alive, feel alive.


   D                             E
We met up once we'd settled the sun
    A        Abm 
Between the heat and the work week
    D
The fear is we could use some sleep
    D                      E
but sleep to a superfluous man means better use for beds
         A       Abm           D
and I'll bet I'm coming home alone tonight.


         D                       E
I don't need to be reminded this is how it was.
        D                         E
I moved on, I passed a billboard down my block
             D                            E
that asks if I've had enough, and aloud I say "I've had too much"

when the truth is, I'm just getting started.

And I feel alive, feel alive, feel alive.


D                     E
One of us sings, and one of us drinks,

and one of us has nothing at all.
      D
So he calls us all sheep
         E                     A
I'm the Little Bo Peep of the bunch.

(I take their tales and I'm ready to go)
        D                            E
Then he swears he's gotta take this call
           A                Abm          D
Man, I'm scared he's gonna leave us too soon.


            D
We were the get rich quick kids,
    E
We never got it right
       D                         E
So we settled for the center in town
               D                      E
Where all the rich white kids is out looking for a fight
         D                    E

       D                   E

Bb Bb/A Gm
Slow down,
F         Eb                F   
we've got time left to be lazy
        Bb        Bb/A         Gm F     Eb                F
All the kids have bloomed from babies into flowers in our eyes.
          Bb    Bb/A  Gm    F      Eb                F
We've got fifty good years left to spend out in the garden
         Eb              Dm
I don't care to beg your pardon,
           Cm    F
We should live
           Bb Bb/A Gm F Eb F Bb Bb/A Bb
until we die.


        Bb         Bb/A            Gm                   Dm Eb F
We were barely eighteen when we'd crossed collective hearts.
        Eb               Dm            Cm                 F
It was cold, but it got warm when you'd barely crossed my eye.
             Bb           Bb/A    Gm
and then you turned, put out your hand,
   F   Eb            F
and you asked me to dance.
        Eb          Dm                 Cm             F


I knew nothing of romance, but it was love at second sight.


  Eb                F                           Bb Bb/A Gm F
I swear when I grow up, I won't just buy you a rose.
       Eb              F                             Bb Bb/A Gm F
I will buy the flower shop, and you will never be lonely.
Eb                     F
Even if the sun stops waking up over the fields
             Bb               Bb/A            Gm
I will not leave, I will not leave 'till it's our time.
         Eb                         F                        Bb Bb/A Gm F Eb F Bb Bb/A Bb
So just take my hand, you know that I will never leave your side.

Bb Bb/A Gm F Eb F Bb Bb/A Bb


           Bb         Bb/A            Gm                Dm Eb F
It was the winter of '86, and all the fields had frozen over.
        Eb        Dm        Cm           F
So we moved to Arizona to save our only son
             Bb Bb/A Gm F
and now he's turning to a man,
            Eb                    F
although he thinks just like his mother,
      Eb                   Dm              Cm          F

he believes we're all just lovers he sees hope in everyone.


         Bb          Bb/A  Gm
And even though she moved away,
    F         Eb              F
we always get calls from our daughter.
        Eb                 Dm
She has eyes just like her father's
         Cm                  F
they are blue when skies are grey
              Bb        Bb/A   Gm   F
And just like him, she never stops,
       Eb                F
Never takes the day for granted,
Eb                           Dm
works for everything that's handed to her,
Cm             F
Never once complains.


Eb                 F      Bb Bb/A Gm F
You think that I nearly lost you
          Eb               F         Bb Bb/A Gm F
When the doctors tried to take you away.
              Eb               F                Bb Bb/A Gm F
But like the night you took my hand beside the fire
        Eb       F
thirty years ago 
	 Bb
to this day
Eb                               F     
You swore you'd be here 'til we decide that it's our time
               Bb                 Bb/A           Gm
Well it's not time, you've never quit in all your life.
         Eb                         F                      Bb Bb/A Gm
So just take my hand, you know that I'll never leave your side.
            Eb                            F                      Bb Bb/A Gm F Eb F Bb Bb/A Bb
You're the love of my life, you know that I'll never leave your side.

Bb Bb/A Gm F Eb F Bb Bb/A Bb
Bb Bb/A Gm F Eb F Bb Bb/A Bb
Bb Bb/A Gm F Eb F Bb Bb/A Bb
Eb Dm Cm Dm Eb F
Eb Dm Cm F

          Bb        Bb/A Gm F
You come home from work
         Eb             F
and you kiss me on the eye
              Eb                Dm              Cm                F
You curse the dog you say that I should never feed them what is ours
           Bb      Bb/A    Gm    F
and so we move all to the garden
        Eb                F
look at everything we've owned
        Eb              Dm
now the kids are coming home
   Cm              Dm Eb F
so I set the table
                  Bb
You can make the fire.

It's a beautiful thing when you love somebody,

Home

           G            D
See, of everyone who called,
     F#m     A   G                 E D    
Very few said "We believe in you."
   G                   D
The overwhelming choice said
E    D     F#m   A            G
I'm just a boy inside a voice
            G         G   F#m    E        D
and if it's true, if it's true, if it's true,
D    A        F#m       A       G
then what the fuck have I been doing the last six years?
   D                A
How did I end up here?
    F#m     A        G
And I find love and conquer all my fears?
     D
See, I made it out.
F#m	A          G
Out from under the sun.
                                 D                   F#m    A    G
And the truth is that I feel better because I've forgiven everyone.


             G
Now I'm not scared
      D
of a song
        F#m
or the states,
         G
or the stages.
         G
I'm not scared.
           D
I've got friends,

         G                          D 
One more think, I keep having this dream
           F#m    A           G   E D
where I'm standing on a mountain
           G         D
Looking out, on the street
            F#m     A          G       E  D
I can hear kids in low-income housing singing
       G               F#m  E  D
"We're through with causing a scene"
          
I don't know
  F#m
I don't know 
         A
I don't know 
         G
I don't know

what it means
      G          D          G  F#m  E  D 
But I too, I'm through with causing a scene.

E*         G*   F#m* E* D*    C#m* D* E*      A* A* C#m* C#m* E* E* C#m* C#m*
For every love that's lost I heard a new one comes.


        G                  D
So come on with me, sing along with me,
         A   A/Bb        Bm
Let the wind catch your feet.
        G        D   A  A* A* C#m* C#m* E* E* C#m* C#m*
If you love somebody,

you'd better let them know.

Take your time coming home.
