VERSES:
   Am             E                     Am
1. Staring at the rain, pouring down my window,
2. Staring at the rain, pouring down my window,
3. Staring at the rain, pouring down my window,

                    E        E7
I keep on wondering why you lie.
I keep on wondering why you lie.
I keep on wondering why you lie.

Dm                      E7                       Am
Like the tears I had to cry, sliding down with pain
Like a ship left on the sea, and the ocean in a rage
Like a bird lost in the sky, flying  down with pain

             G             E           E7               Am     G
You're still hangin' in my brain and I feel like such a fool.   (To Verse 2)
With the waves that run so high it's a never ending tide.       (To Chorus 1)
You're still soaring in my brain it's a never ending flight.    (To Chorus 2)

CHORUS:
     C                     G        E7
1.2. I don't wanna keep on dragging myself

Am        G                F ////  /// G
I Seem to live in happiness

C                     G       E7
I don't wanna keep on draggin myself

Am         G             F     Dm  E7
I Need someone to find my way,        And I feel like such a fool.
