Riff 1    
               *                                  *           
I've this creeping Suspicion that things here are not as they seem 
         *                      *                                 *
Reassure me Why do I feel as if I'm in too deep Now I've been praying 
                              *                                *
For some way to show them I'm not what they see Oh I have done wrong 
                         *                Riff 1 
But what I did I thought needed be done I swear 

          *                          *                               *   
Oh unholy day If I leave now I might get away Oh, but this weighs on me 
                         *
As heavy as stone and as blue as I go 

           F            C/E          G74 C          F            C/E
I was just wondering if you'd come along Hold up my head when my head 
           G74   C           F           C/E          G74
won't hold on    I'll do the same if the same's what you want 
    C           Riff 3                       * 
But if not I'll go         I will go a long way 

                      *                              *
Ah ha ah ah From that fool's mistake and now forever pay No, run 
                    *
I will run and I'll be okay

                       *                                 * 
To Bury the past for I don't want to pay  Oh, how I wish this 
                              *
To turn back the clock and do over again

But if not I'll go         I will go a long way 
       *                                * 
I need so To stay in your arms, see you smile, hold you close 
                     *                          *
And now it weighs on me As heavy as stone and a bone chilling cold

I was just wondering if you'd come along          Tell me you will

Riff 2 is played during the verses. I put a * above the place in the lyrics where the Gm chord is played. And I just now realized the voicing should be 31x3xx for the Gm chord. It is very difficult to play and sing this song. You just have to keep at it until you've got it.
