Intro:  F#m  Dsus2  Esus4 - E- Esus4 - E (listen for the strumming pattern)

Verse 1:

F#m                                Dsus2                   Esus4
i was only looking for a shortcut home
          E
but it's complicated 
Esus4     E
so complicated 
F#m                                  Dsus2                Esus4
somewhere in this city is a road i know 
                      E
where we could make it 
Esus4                        E   Dsus2
but maybe there's no making it now 

Chorus:

A
too long we've been denying 
E
now we're both tired of trying 
F#m                         Dsus2
we hit a wall and we can't get over it 
A
nothing to relive 
      E
it's water under the bridge 
     F#m
you said it, i get it 
           Dsus2
i guess it is what it is 


Verse 2: same as verse 1
i was only trying to bury the pain 
but i made you cry and i can't stop the crying 
was only trying to save me 
but i lost you again 
now there's only lying 
wish i could say it's only me 


Chorus 2: same as previous chorus

A
too long we've been denying 
E
now we're both tired of trying 
F#m                         Dsus2
we hit a wall and we can't get over it 
A
nothing to relive 
      E
it's water under the bridge 
     F#m
you said it, i get it 
           Dsus2
i guess it is what it is 

Bridge:

Dsus2     
here it comes ready or not 
    E
we both found out it's not how we thought 
     F#m              Bm          C#5(just 1 strum)
that it would be, how it would be 
Dsus2
if the time could turn us around 
     E
what once was lost may be found 
     F#m              Bm       C#5(just 1 strum)
for you and me, for you and me 


Solo: Same as intro


Last Chorus: same as before

A
too long we've been denying 
E
now we're both tired of trying 
F#m                         Dsus2
we hit a wall and we can't get over it 
A
nothing left to relive 
     E
it's water under the bridge 
     F#m
you said it, i get it 
           Dsus2 (keep for 2 bars)
i guess it is what it is 

F#m                                Dsus2               Esus4
i was only looking for a shortcut home
          E
but it's complicated 
Esus4         E
so complicated 

Hope it's right! Enjoy!
