Intro: A  E/G#  F#m  D   x2


Verse 1:
    A
Oh Elise it doesn't 
                E/G#
matter what you say
I just can't stay 
           F#m
here every yesterday
Like keep on 
D
acting out the same
The way we act out
A
Every way to smile
           E/G#
Forget And make believe 
we never needed
F#m
Any more than this
D
Any more than this


Interlude: A  E  F#m  D  


Verse 2:
    A
Oh Elise it doesn't 
                E/G#
matter what you do
I know I'll never 
       F#m
really get inside of you
             D
To make your eyes catch fire
The way they should
    A
The way the blue
could pull me in
        E/G#
If they only would
If they only would
   F#m
At least I'd lose this 
sense of sensing 
D
something else
That hides away
    A
But you and me
There're worlds to part
     E/G#
With aching looks
and breaking hearts
    F#m
And all your prayers
hands can make
   D
And Oh I just take as much 

as you can throw
A                        E/G#
  And then throw it all away
                   F#m
Oh I throw it all away
                    D
Like throwing faces at the sky
Like throwing arms around


Chorus:
E
Yesterday
I stood and stared
     F#m
Wide eyed in front of you
        E
And the face I saw looked back
          F#m
The way I wanted to
      E
But I just can't
hold my tears away
    F#m
The way you do
 G                    F#m
Elise believe I never wanted this
  G
I thought this time I'd 
               F#m
keep all of my promises
  G
I thought you were the girl
         F#m
I always dreamed about
      G
But I let the dream go
        F#m
And the promises broke
        Bm
And the make believe ran out


Interlude: E  F#m   x2, A  Bm  E  C#m  

Silence: A  E/G#  F#m  D  

Distortion: A  E  F#m  D  


(Repeat Verse 1)


Outro:
    A
And every time I try 
           E/G#
to pick it up
Like falling sand
   F#m
As fast as I pick it up
         D
It runs away through 
my clutching hands
            A
But there's nothing 
else I can really do
        E/G#
There's nothing else 
I can really do
        F#m
There's nothing else
                   D(hold)
I can really do At all
