[Intro]
D/F# Cadd9 x2

[Verse 1]
D/F#
Changin' my flight for a week now
D/F#
Not a chance of gettin' off the ground
      Cadd9
And I mighta lost some o' my marbles
Cadd9
So I'm checkin' with the lost and found
         D/F#
I'm only tryin'a' stay ahead of danger
D/F#
And the tickin' of the thin red hand
         Cadd9
But in a half a second I got older
Cadd9
It's gettin' harder now to understand

[Chorus]
D/F#      E7
Whoa whoa time keep runnin'
G
Gettin' my stopwatch wound
D/F#      E7
Whoa whoa moon or sunnin'
G
Day and night'll both be
G
Day and night'll both be
G                    D/F#  Cadd9 D/F# Cadd9
Keepin' me above the ground

[Verse 2]
     D/F#
Been wakin' up with my nose in the eggs now
D/F#
And I suppose that I could use a shower
         Cadd9
But I'll never turn the other cheek now
Cadd9
I guess the 'tude is gettin' dark and sour
        D/F#
I gotta man up to what I been thinkin'
D/F#
Not a crime to wanna kick it alone
           Cadd9
But I have come to know what is a real crime
Cadd9
To mortify what you don't own

[Chorus]
D/F#      E7
Whoa whoa time keep runnin'
G
Gettin' my stopwatch wound
D/F#      E7
Whoa whoa moon or sunnin'
G
Day and night'll both be
G
Day and night'll both be
G                    D/F#  Cadd9 D/F# Cadd9
Keepin' me above the ground

[Instrumental]
Am Am7 D Fm C

[Bridge]
Am            Am7            D
Shoot for the ground and you know what you'll find
Fm                          C
You'll get the ground every time
Am            Am7             D
Shoot for the moon while your thoughts stay sublime
Fm                          C
You'll get something in between

D/F# Cadd9 x2
