Sort your feelings if you can

     G                      Am
And together you'll walk in silence
     C              G
Not knowing what to say
Dm          F            G          Dm | Dsus4 | 
What was I thinking about the other day

As you sit alone and watch…
          G                      Dm
You fall asleep in your Hollywood light
