Title: Breakdown

Capo on 5th fret


[Intro]

G   Bm   Em   D 
G   Bm   Em   D 


[Verse]

G                Bm
I hope this old train breaks down
Em                   D
Then I could take a walk around
G                   Bm
And, see what there is to see
Em                  D
And time is just a melody

               G
With all the people in the street
         Bm                   
Walk as fast as their feet can take them
Em                   D
I just roll through town

               G
And though my window's got a view, well
      Bm
The frame Im looking through
         Em                   D
Seems to have no concern for now, so for now


[Chorus]

G  G/F#
I need this
Em             D 
Old train to breakdown
G  G/F#
Oh please just
Em              D
Let me please breakdown


[Instrumental]

G   Bm   Em   D 
G   Bm   Em   D 


[Verse]

G             Bm
This engine screams out loud
Em                D
Centipede gonna crawl westbound
G                Bm
So I don't even make a sound
Em                          D
It's gunna sting me when I leave this town
         G
All the people in the street
           Bm
That I'll never get to meet
          Em                    D
If these tracks don't bend somehow
    G
And I got no time
     Bm
That I got to get to
 Em                   D
Where I don't need to be, so I


[Chorus]

G  
D        C        G
I wanna break on down
But I cant stop now
Let me break on down


[Instrumental]

D    C
  

[Verse]

         G
But you cant stop nothing
       Bm
If you got no control
         Em
Of the thoughts in your mind
          D
That you kept in, you know
     G
You don't know nothing
        Bm
But you don't need to know
     Em
The wisdoms in the trees
          D
Not the glass windows

     G
You cant stop wishing
        Bm
If you don't let go
     Em
But things that you find
         D
And you lose, and you know
     G
You keep on rolling
        Bm
Put the moment on hold
      Em
The frames too bright
             D
So put the blinds down low


[Chorus]

G   Bm   Em   D
                I wanna break on down
G   Bm   Em   D
                But I cant stop now


[Outro]

G   Bm   Em   D
G   Bm   Em   D
G

excellent--i used your other tab before, 'don't look back into the sun', and when i saw a comment made by "hannahlove" on a kooks song it sounded familiar.

anyways, both tabs are excellent (and we have similar tastes in music)
