Verse
C                      E
When all the consoling places
F                    G
lose their charm and change their faces.
C                     E
The world becomes too cruel to bear
F                    G
and something in you starts to tear.
C                     E
When nothing seems to be quite worth it
F                      G
and sleep becomes your only sure thing.
C                    E
I'm here to help you out of it.
F               G
Come and see me for a lift.

We're all close to the end.

Don't you need a friend?

Honor your allegiances.

A           F           G
Everyone is drowning in sand.
             F     E
Couldn't you use a hand?
A      E     F          F E G C B A G
Please don't make me guess.

Verse (same as first)
When changes make the world a stranger.
No one calls and yout life's in danger.
If the money's gone without a trace
and you're longing for a familiar face.
Cars collide and people die.
You begin to shake 'til you start to cry.
If disasters only start to multiply.
My door is open. Drop on by.

Chorus (same as first)

E                 F
Sad again, you're sad again.
C           G         C
Hey, you're breaking down.
E                 F
Sad again, you're sad again.
C           G             C     G
Your eyes betray your new smile.

Verse (same as first)
When keeping up is killing you
and you need a ruling without a clue.
When being cool means being dead
and your better thoughts are better left unsaid.
If you're sad to see your gun's unloaded.
Tried to drown but you only floated.
If the world is only getting colder,
I'd like to offer you a dry shoulder.

Chorus

Bridge

That should be about it. It sounds... ok. Just ok.
