VERSE
       D         A/D         F#m7          G
It was late in December, the sky turned to snow
G              A       Bm    A    G
 All round the day was going down slow
D             A/D     F#m7       G
 Night like a river beginning to flow
G           A          Bm   A  G
 I felt the beat of my mind go drifting into

VERSE
      D           A/D     F#m7        G
Well, I'm not the kind to live in the past
    G             A             Bm   A   G
The years run too short and the days too fast
D               A/D         F#m7              G
 The things you lean on are things that don't last
           G            A       Bm   A    G
Well, it's just now and then my line gets cast into these

MIDDLE 8
Bb                   Gm6/Bb                    D
 Hear the echoes and feel yourself starting to turn
Bb                         Gm6/Bb                         Bm
 Don't know why you should feel that there's something to learn
 E                         [ D ]
   It's just a game that you play

Well, the picture is changing, now you're part of a crowd
        G           A                 Bm A     G
They're laughing at something and the mu-sic's loud
  D            A/D            F#m7         G
A girl comes towards you, you once used to know

You reach out your hand but you're all a-lone in these

Such a great song. And leave it to maguri to do it justice as well as make it actually playable via the chord chart. You're awesome! A big thumbs up - loved this song since I was little.
