     "My hopes are so high..."
      E      Abm    A/D     Abm           Repeat chorus:

After the second chorus he breaks into the bridge/outro section:

Bridge/outro: These are the chords being played, a second guitar is picking
through some other stuff which is at the bottom:

*Note:
When Chris hits "and the time on the clock..." there is a difference in the Dbm
chord playing style. Damn, I love that part!!!

   "Hands down this is the..."            End On:
