-F#m* means only play the first half of the riff

3/4

Em

Em
why don't you ask me how long i've been waiting
     Em
sat down on the road with the gunshots exploding
     F#m
i'm waiting for you, in the gloom and the blazing
     F#m*
i'm waiting for you

   Em
i sing like a slave, i know i should know better
i've learned all my lessons right down to the letter
     F#m
and still i go on like this year after year
                         (strum F#m 4 times)
waiting for miracles and shaking......
(change to 4/4)   Em7
............with fear

Em7
why don't you answer, why don't you come save me
show me how to use all these things that you gave me
F#m7
turn me inside out so my bones can save me
F#m7*
turn me inside out

Em7
you've come this close, you can come even closer
the gunshots get louder and the world spins faster
     F#m7
and things just get further and further apart
                                               Em7
the head from the hands and the hands from my heart

one thing that's true is the way that i love him
the earth down below and the sky up above him
F#m7
and still i go on like this day after day
still i go on like this

Em7  F#m7

Em7
now i've said this, i already feel stronger
i can't keep waiting for you any longer
F#m7
i need you now, not someday when i'm ready
                                         Em7
come down on the road, come down on the road

F#m7  Em7  F#m7

Em7
my name, my name
nothing is
               F#m7
nothing is the same
                               Em7
and i won't go back the way i came
my name, my name
               F#m7
nothing is the same
