Intro:
C B A G F E G
C	           B
If I could walk a straight mile
A			  G		
I could write it down in shorthand
	F  	E
I could show you
G
If you want me to

C		B
And if I had an hourglass
A			  G
I'd save the grains of time I spent with you
F	  E
And that's what I'd do
G
But I remember

F	   E		    G
You always said it could be great
And I knew it could be

Well there's a way you look at things
That no one needs to know but you
And you shout em with me

Like every time the leaves would fall
You'd promise me that they'd be back again
And I believed in you
 
F	   E	   	    G
You always said it could be great
But I hadn't time to waste
F	   E   	 	    D
Now it seems that I've gone too far

C		G
As bright as you are
A#	   	     F
Don't get burned by your lucky star
C		G
Bright as you are
A#		     F
Don't get burned by your lucky star

Written down in hard-bound books
The way things used to be (?)
I'd swear they're all for you

(?)
Mama said shit I don't know what you'll do
As if it's up to you

You always said it could be great
But I hadn't time to waste
Now it seems that I've gone too far

(The rest till the end is C-G-A#-F)

As bright as you are
Don't get burned by your lucky star
Bright as you are
Don't get burned by your lucky star

Your lucky star will burn out
Your lucky star can turn you around
Your lucky star will burn out
Your lucky star can turn you around

Turn you around
Turn you around
Turn you around
Turn you around
F	     G 		C	
They're gonna turn you around

I called you up all night til mornin'

Left my house by noon today, and I saw you standing there

No one spoke, but we both listened 
B5          E5             C#5     E5  D#5  C#5  D#5

Smells like summer's on the way, and I saw you standing there 
Tell the story of a lifetime 
Tomorrow brings a brand new day

Don't worry 'bout today, shake the world from your head 
C#5           B5
  Least for a while

(verse)
You see, the day keeps getting longer 
But my nights seem longer still, and my TV's off the air 
Watching repeats on my ceiling 
Another hour left to kill

Don't worry 'bout today, and the words that you said 
Don't worry 'bout today, shake the world from your head 
Least for a while

(verse)
You changed my face,
        I think I like it better now.
It doesn't matter anyhow, cuz that's the way it is.
You said hello,
        Well where the hell you been?
I said I feel like I've been off to war, and I may never be the same
 again.

(verse)
I made my bed,
        But now I can't sleep at night.
I'm tossin and turnin you know, you know it ain't right.
I'd love to beg,
        See, but I'm just too proud.
And I don't even know what to say, so I'm thinking out loud.

(chorus)
And when you dream 17,
        I ain't there, so I don't care.
Cuz in all my dreams, I'm 23,
        And she's the girl right next to me.
        See that girl right next to me.

(verse)
I lie in my bed,
        You're running through my head.
Going over and over and over, the things that you said.
I'm caught in the trap,
        I'll run like hell right back to you.
Cuz it's over with you and you know it means drinking alone.

(chorus)
And when you dream 17,
        I ain't there, so I don't care.
Cuz in all my dreams, I'm 23,
        And she's the girl right next to me.
        See that girl right next to me.

It's a beautiful day I heard everybody say 
    Am         C               G4/6      F7       
The sun shines down for all of us 
Am        C       G4/6            F7

It's a beautiful life and I've got it in my sights 
And that ain't for all of us 
It's a beautiful sound 
When my life comes crashin down 
That ain't so obvious 

(verse)
It's a beautiful sin and I'm doin' it again 
And that ain't for all of us 
It's a beautiful life and I've got it in my sights 
Ain't that so obvious

(verse)
E5          G5           D5              E5(VII)  C5
I've got no politics, no influential friend or two 
E5         G5            D5                E5(VII)  C5
I've got ideas, but it's nothing I picked up at school 
E5         G5               D5              E5(VII)  C5
I might be running, but I'm never running back to you

(bridge - riff 1)
And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect you'll reply 
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie

(verse)
I had to wait so long that weeks and months that passed me by 
You've got no power and my situation don't apply 
You ask me how I am, I lie and say I'm doing fine

(bridge)
And with your sugar-sweetened alibi, there was a truth I never knew 
And all the attitude you gave me, it's coming back to you

(chorus)
G                           D5       E5(VII) C5
String of lies, it's always compromise with you 
G                                D5         E5(VII) C5
String of lies, you know there's nothing better to do 
G                           D5             E5(VII) C5
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you

(bridge)
And here's a letter from the real world, I don't expect you'll reply 
And anything you're gonna tell me, it's just another lie

(solo)
E5-G5-D5-E5(VII)-C5
(4 times)

String of lies, we always compromise for you 
String of lies, you know there's nothing better to do 
String of lies, it's been a string of lies with you 
String of lies, we always compromise for you

http://soong.heinous.net/~goo/index.html


G	 D		     E7		 C(add9)
Happy, smilin', cryin' upwards to my past,
G	 	  D		        E7		      C(add9)
I guess those stormy gray skies simply couldn't last.
G	    D		    E7		    C(add9)
And now I find myself a-tugging at your dress.
G	     D		       E7		    C(add9)
The funnel holding me down, oh see the cloud, it's never gonna pass.

Break: G-D-E7-C(add9) (2x)
(bass in here, see my bass tab for the cool riff)

G5	    D5		    E5		C5
Somewhere there's a place a soul can never go,
G5	    D5		 E5			C5
Gray-like stormy skies I hoped you didn't know.
G5	  D5			  E5			 C5
All our postcards full of things I won't forget.
G	       D		       E7		       C(add9)
And now it's coming down, that laughing clown is all I ever get.

G	  D		  E7			  C(add9)
Another second time around, I've been runnin' from ya
G	  D		    E7	C(add9)
Another second time around.
G	  D			 E7			C(add9)
Another second, one more second time, I waited for ya,
G	  D		    E7	C(add9)
Another second time around.

D5	   C5
Couldn't help myself,
  D5			C5		   D5
I felt like everything was gonna pass.
 		C5
It was an awkward time,
  D5				C5
I hoped it wouldn't, hoped it couldn't last.

(Solo like only Johnny Rzeznik does...)

G5	D5		 E5		    C5
And I didn't know exactly what to say,
G5	    D5		    E5	   D5
About the things you saw me do my evil way.
(*** add riff at bottom **)
G5	     D5		 E5			C5
And I know you're lyin', cryin' in your bed.
G	       D		    E7		 C(add9)
Well I'm all tired out, so wired out, it's ringing in my head.

G	  D		  E7			  C(add9)
Another second time around, I've been runnin' from ya
G	  D		    E7	C(add9)
Another second time around.
G	  D			 E7			C(add9)
Another second, one more second time, I waited for ya,
G	  D		    E7	C(add9)
Another second time around.
G	  D		    E7	C(add9)
Another second time around.
G	  D		    E7	C(add9)
Another second time around.

D5        G5
I look outside my window 
B5             A5           D5
Everything was blanketed in white 
              G5
The neighbors pushing cars out 
B5             A5              D5
From snow that fell on us last night 
        G5
Started thinking 'bout 
    B5                A5              D5
The things we used to do when we were young 
          G5
Back when things were simple 
    B5             A5
And getting up was fun

I'm already there, and I'm ready there

(verse)
Turn around and face the clock 
I'd sit and watch, as time went hoppin' by 
I'm still growing up 
My friends are growing old before my eyes 
Count the stars above 
Wonder when the heavens will subside 
Knowing our two worlds 
Will someday just collide

(chorus)
I couldn't care, 'cause I'm already there. 
I'm already there, and I'm ready there

Just a boy who's young at heart 
His smile was a bit like yours today 
Had a wife, a kid, some strife 
Never had to go astray 
Happiness evolved 
Life was in full swing 
At 17, all the things he wanted 
Were things he'd never seen

I'm already there, and I'm ready there

(verse - with riff)
Why do you stare me down? 
Am I wrong? 
Should I turn and kiss the ground? 
And I never felt that way 
I ain't the one and you know I don't come from such a place

(bridge)
E5
And I didn't get those things 
F#
Things that you can't grow 
E5
You say that it's all my fault 
F#5
And I don't need to know

E5-F#5

   Tell me        something    I don't know 
F#5                    E5
And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me

   You said      that it's all been said before 
F#5                     E5
Now I find that there's something I don't know

(verse)
And I hate your attitude 
I ain't scared at all 
'Cause it don't matter what you do 
And I'll turn around to see the truth 
You're tearing it down, yeah, you're bringing it down 
And it's all on you

(bridge)
And I didn't get those things 
Things that you can't grow 
You say that it's all my fault 
And I don't need to know

(chorus)
Tell me something I don't know 
And I'll find that I'm always looking 'round behind me 
You said that it's all been said before 
Now I find that there's something I don't know

(solo)
G#5-B5-F#5-E5 (2x)

E5         F#5
And I know  
        E5
I don't know 
(Rock and roll)  F#5
E5             F#5
And I say that 
E5
If you break enough glass and there's no one to hear 
         F#5
And your heart's full of hate 
'Cause your mind's full of fear 

(riff)
Let it go

(riff)
So far away 
So far away 
So far away 
Oh so far away 
So far away 
So far away

You should make these tabs in a more printable form. When you go to print these, they get cut off on the end. Also, if you try to copy and paste to a document in order to print the tabs from there, the spacing no longer exists. Please find a better and easier way to print!!
