Verse, Guitar 1 tacet:
G
Waiting for the moon to come and light me up inside
         Em                           C           A
And I am waiting for the telephone to tell me I'm alive
Well I heard you let somebody get their fingers into you
It's getting cold in California
I guess I'll be leaving soon

Chorus:

D
Daylight fading
         Em7           C
Come and waste another year
        Em7           C             G             D
All the anger and the eloquence are bleeding into fear
D                             Em7            C
Moonlight creeping around the corners of our lawn
        Em            Asus2                 C
When we see the early signs that daylight's fading
         D
We leave just before it's gone


Repeat intro

Verse: (where indicated, gtr. 1 plays the fills below)

She said "everybody loves you"
she says, "everybody cares"
But all the things I keep inside myself,
                      * (w/ fill 1)
they vanish in the air              * (w/ fill 2)
If you tell me that you'll wait for me
I'll say I won't be here
I want to say goodby to you
Goodbye to all my friends
Goodbye to everyone I know

Fill 1                   Fill 2
