Tabbed by Paulo Rodrigues

I'm pretty sure this is the real thing EXCEPT for the intro..i'm really not sure about 
but it works well nonetheless..give it a try and make changes where you see fit. Cheers!

CAPO 4th fret


C               Am              C      Am
The way things used to be, well not anymore
F          C        C/B     Am
Close your eyes, open up your door
C            Am     C          Am
Well I’m not tired, I’m coming alive
   C    C/B    Am            G     F
But you make up on, let’s go out tonight

C  C/B  Am  G  F
C  C/B  Am  C

These things don’t matter now
       Am            F
We can leave it all behind
That’s all depending on
          Am                F
If you’re free to free your mind

     G                 Am          F
The crucifix still hung up by the door
     G                 Am          F
But Jesus doesn’t come here anymore
      G              Am             F
Those memories still hanging on the wall
     G                 Am              F
But people there don’t look like us at all

      C    C/B Am  G F
Don’t need reminding of
     C     C/B AM     C
The way things used to be

I race you to the top
        Am             F
Then we walk back down again
Look to the future now
             Am                  F
Where you’re going, where you’ve been

     G            Am               F
The universe is smaller than you think
     G                Am               F
So many years spent blind and then you blink
    G                Am            F
I promise you we're meant to suffering
     G             Am                   F
If you could be my queen, I’ll be your king

      C    C/B Am  G F
Don’t need reminding of
     C     C/B AM     C
The way things used to be


C   Am  F (2x)
G  Am F  (2x)
C  C/B  Am  G  F  (2x)


G                   Am              F
Take this chance to rest your tired eyes
G                   Am              F
Come with me, we’ll move to better skies
G                    Am           F
If where we go don’t make a difference
     G                Am               F
Just turn around and we’ll come back again

      C    C/B Am  G F
Don’t need reminding of
     C     C/B AM     C
The way things used to be
