	  F#/G		C/G
In the waiting days ahead

I know that it's not too late

well I hope that it's not my fate

To keep defeating... my own self
           D	    Bm	    C
and keep repeating... yesterday

        F#/G	        C/G
In the dark of night I might
      D		         G
be able to make myself think
	   F#/G		C/G   D	G
that I'm still a younger man

	 F#/G			  C/G
When the light of day shines down
	D	               G
there's no way to get around it

I am not the younger man

I keep defeating... my own self

to do the best I could

I can't keep defeating myself

You need to fix the "Chords used in this song", it's completly wrong ! The low E string is on the bottom et the high "e" on the top ...
