G                  Em
All the floors and all the walls
C5                 Am(Riff)
And all the rest remains
G               Em
Nothing changes fast enough
C5               Am(Riff)
The hurry, worry days
G                    Em
It makes you want to give it up
C5               Am(Riff)
And drift into a haze

We're all exchanging pleasantries

No matter how we feel
G                    Em
And no one knows the difference
          C5             Am(Riff)
'Cause it all seems so unreal
      G             Em
