[Intro] 
C9  G  C9  G C9  G G/F# Em  Am  D7 

C9                 G
Eight weeks in the city,
C9                         G
And you've never looked so pale,
             C9
They say the pure of heart don't stand a chance,
          G      G/F#     Em
And you'd better learn to swim,
      Am                  D7
Cause there will be rainy days.

    C9                G   
I'm blinded the brake lights,
             C9             G
Well there's nothing moving here,
    C                                         G             G/F#    Em
And all your burning questions, they just get answered with another one,
    Am                 D7
And there's no help at all.

   C9             G   
So question me no questions,
       C9             G 
It's a pointless enterprise,
    C9                                G         G/F#    Em
You ask and i'll only tell you what I think you want to hear,
   Am               D7
Oh mind the whitest lies.

          C9                               G
Cause the truth, well it's for students of philosophy,
    C9                       G
And faith is for losers like us,
    C                                        G         G/F#         Em
And secrets are for people who intend to get away with being in the wrong,
   Am                 D7
So don't you breath a word.

              C
But save your breath,
        D         G      Bm
For the laughing aloud, again,
                 C
save your breath,
        D           G      Bm
For the talking all night, oh..
         C
Save you breath,
        D         G      Bm
For the laughing aloud, again,
          C
Save your breath,
          D
Save your breath.

         C9                       G
Will you listen to their bleeding hearts?
C9                 G
Pretend to show concern,
           C                                 G    G/F# Em
And so we glanced our watches and join in as everybody sings,
   Am           D7
Oh what have we become? 

          C9            G
Will you hop a train to anywhere?
   C9                       G
It sure ain't no place like home,
           C                       G                G/F#    Em
Where there are no strangers, only people you don't want to know,
      Am                  D7
But before the crying out loud..
      
              C
But save your breath,
        D         G      Bm
For the laughing aloud, again,
                 C
save your breath,
        D           G      Bm
For the talking all night, oh..
         C
Save your breath,
        D         G      Bm
For the laughing aloud, again,
          C
Save your breath,
          D
Save your breath.

   C9             G
So meet me by the station,
    C9                G
And bring a change of heart,
    C9                 G             G/F#          Em
And smile away the old country as we watch it disappear
    Am                D7
And pull these years apart.
    C9                  G
And scatter from the window,
   C9            G
To settle on the fields,
    C9                                 G       G/F#    Em
And tell yourself a hundred times that forever starts today,
    Am                 D7
And think how good it feels.

              C
But save your breath,
        D         G      Bm
For the laughing aloud, again,
                 C
save your breath,
        D           G      Bm
For the talking all night, oh..
         C
Save you breath,
        D         G      Bm
For the laughing aloud, again,
          C
Save your breath,
          D
Save your breath.

             C
So save your breath,
        D         G      Bm
For the laughing aloud, again,
                 C
save your breath,
        D           G      Bm
For the talking all night, oh..
         C
Save you breath,
        D         G      Bm
For the laughing aloud, again,
          C
Save your breath,
       D
So save...

          C
Save your breath,           D                  G     Bm
         (Don't waste your breath on treading water anymore)
          C
Save your breath,        D                 G          Bm
         (There must be something you consider to be worth fighting for)
C                 
Save your breath,    D                  G                  Bm                  
         (Waste your breath on running circles, round and round and round and round)
C         D
Save your breath,                  G              Bm
     (And talking about it when it cannot get you down)
C         D      
Save your breath,          G                 Bm
       (Nobody wants that much we just want more)
          C
Save your breath,          D                  G        Bm
         (Don't waste your breath on treading water anymore)
          C
Save your breath,         D                 G                  Bm
        (Don't waste your breath on running circles, round and round and round and round)

C         D
Save your breath.
