Here's the lyrics: There's no peace, little comfort, no one's shoulder
Minor wrinklings of the time that made you colder
I'm not saying much I tried hard that's all I do
Tried and waited then got tired, that's about it
With my time
With my time

Got away this time
Why should I have time to answer?
Several shades of why
I can't go back, it's faster
Don't expect it 'cause the ending's a disaster
Nothing nothing nothing man, a little laughter
With my time
With my time

Gone at it the wrong way
Thought I'd find out but I missed it
If I make it through I'll run and stop the twistin'
Way I steered us off'll lose it just to give in
Help me not dwell on the dead
How about the living?
With my time
With my time

Good tab! Thanks!
