Intro: A  G  G  A

       D            A        G
In the hope I'll forget I'll wait
       D           A       G
It's a chance I'll take oh yeah
       D            A        G
In the hope I'll forget I'll wait
         D  A  G
For the time

       D           A         G
In the spring I'll watch my step
       D             A       G                        
While the night-time passes by
       D              A      G                          
When a smile suits me all alone
          D  A  G                      
I'll be fine

(G)                 A
There's got to be a better song to sing
         G
Before I hang upon your shoulder
            G                          A
Telling the truth it may be bolder this time
                    D              A
There's got to be a better song to sing
             G
That makes a lonely one less cold oh
         G                          A
Before I hang upon your shoulder and cry

D  A  G  G(4 times)

A  G  G  A (once)

D  A  G  G  A  (once)

         D               A        G                           
Watching friends playing in the dirt
         D       A       G                            
Feeling hard but feeling hurt
       D            A          G                          
By the sadness that wastes my time
          D  A  G                      
It's a crime

         D          A      G                     
Counting acts which I must add
      D        A    G                
To collect sad memories
       D        A        G                   
From a past I'd soon forget
           D  A  G      
Swap or leave

(G)                 A
There's got to be a better song to sing
         G
Before I hang upon your shoulder
            G                          A
Telling the truth it may be bolder this time
                    D              A
There's got to be a better song to sing
             G
That makes a lonely one less cold oh
         G                          A
Before I hang upon your shoulder and cry

       D       A        G                    
At the gate I'll wave goodbye
       D            A        G                       
To the friends that were my lies
         D        A      G                   
And I'll see them off at dawn
         D  A  G      
Feeling wise
         D  A  G           
Feeling wise
         D  A  G               
Feeling wise

D  A  G  
(repeat till the end and end on D)
