 Come on, oh my star is fading
D     A     Esus4 E  G
 And I swerve out of control
D   A   Esus4 E    G
 If I, if I'd only waited
D           A               Esus4 E G
 I'd not be stuck here in this hole

D     A       Esus4 E      G
 And I swear, I waited and waited
D            A            Esus4 E G
 I've got to get out of this hole
 
[Chorus 1]
   Eadd9              Gmaj7
 But time is on your side

 It's on your side, now
                Eadd9             Gmaj7
 Not pushing you down, and all around
          D            A
 It's no cause for concern

[Verse 3]
(riff same as intro): 
D        A Esus4 E      G
 Come on, oh my star is fading
D     A     Esus4    E  G
 And I see no chance of release
D     A       Esus4  E      G
 And I know I'm dead on the surface
D         A           Esus4 E G
 But I am screaming underneath
 
[Chorus 2]
   Eadd9              Gmaj7
 And time is on your side
               D      A
 It's on your side, now
                Eadd9             Gmaj7
 Not pushing you down, and all around
             D            A
 No it's no cause for concern

[Verse 4]
             Eadd9                 Gmaj7
 Stuck on the end of this ball and chain
                D         A
 And I'm on my way back down again
             Eadd9              Gmaj7
 Stood on the edge, tied to the noose
               D A
 Sick to the stomach
 
[Verse 5]
                     Eadd9
 You can say what you mean
                       Gmaj7
 But it won't change a thing
                   D A
 I'm sick of the secrets
             Eadd9              Gmaj7
 Stood on the edge, tied to the noose
                D                   A
 And you came along and you cut me loose

[Outro]
(riff same as bridge 3, except all G6 chords are Gmaj7 chords):

Eadd9  Gmaj7            D                   A
 ...    ...  You came along and you cut me loose
Eadd9  Gmaj7            D                   A
 ...    ...  You came along and you cut me loose

************************************
 
1. Bracketed notes are optional. Omit them to bring out the melody.
2. Play the lower strings (especially E and A) lightly or omit them altogether.
3. Listen for the accents in the intro (generally every second beat).
4. Pay close attention to the rhythm, especially the syncopation in bridge 3.
      Rhythm legend:
       H = Half note (minim)
       Q = Quarter note (crotchet)
       E = Eighth note (quaver)
       S = Sixteenth note (semiquaver)
       . = Dotted note (one and a half)
