Bb      F                                 C           Gm
A long December and there's reason to believe
                  Bb             F                     Bb *(Gtr plays fill 1)
Maybe this year will be better than the last

I can't remember the last thing that you said as you were leavin'
               F                   Bb
Now the days go by so fast

time only
             F                        Bb                Gm 
And it's one more day up in the canyons
             F                        Bb            Gm
And it's one more night in Hollywood
          F                        Bb           Gm
If you think that I could be forgiven... I wish you would

F        Bb
Na na na na
Gm              Bb
Na na na na na na na na na
F        Bb     Am
Na na na na yeah

Bb      F                                 C           Gm
The smell of hospitals in winter (w/ fill 1, then fill 2 here)
                  Bb             F                     Bb 
And the feeling that it's all a lot of oysters, but no pearls *
Gm     Bb                 F                         C      Gm
All at once you look across a crowded room

               F              Bb
To see the way that light attaches to a girl *(and fill 3 here)
             F                        Bb                Gm 
And it's one more day up in the canyons
             F                        Bb            Gm
And it's one more night in Hollywood
          F             Bb                              Gm
If you think you might come to California... I think you should

Bb      F                                 C           Gm
Drove up to Hillside Manor sometime after two a.m.
                  Bb             F                     Bb 
And talked a little while about the year
Gm     Bb                 F                         C           Gm
I guess the winter makes you laugh a little slower,
                  F                                       Bb
Makes you talk a little lower about the things you could not show her

Bb      F                                 C           Gm
And it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
                  Bb             F                          Bb
Maybe this year will be better than the last *(fill 2)
Gm     Bb                 F                         C                       Gm
I can't remember all the times I tried to tell myself
     F                                      Bb
To hold on to these moments as they pass *(fill 4)

             F                        Bb                Gm 
And it's one more day up in the canyon *(fill 5, played w/ a slide)
            F                        Bb            Gm
And it's one more night in Hollywood
          F                        Bb                     Gm
It's been so long since I've seen the ocean... I guess I should


F        Bb
Na na na na
Gm              Bb
Na na na na na na na na na
F        Bb     Am        Am
