Intro:  G C G C

G                            C
We were getting tired of not living to the letter,
G                          C
And yet not knowing how to do it that much better,
Am                          D
I was feeling awful all the time,
Am                         D
She was never really on my mind.

  G                                 C
I know you'll soon decide that it's time to be a-leaving,
G                                 C
To begin the search for something worthwhile to believe in,
        Am                             D
The frustration of now knowing what it is,
    Am                                 D
Yet knowing you need more than cash to live.

         G                              C
You said don't you ever feel like human beings are a virus,
    G                                  C
And if god loved the earth he'd do his best to sterilize us,
       Am                                D
For I know the worlds a complex place to be,
    Am                        D
But don't become a cynical as me.
  G                                    C       
A thousand pop songs say that life's a never ending highway,
    G                                     C
And if you're young you'd close your eyes floor the car and drive it,
      Am                       D
But I know that for every open road,
    Am                                D
You see a door that's just waiting to close.

            G                          C
Please just follow the people who love life enough to use it,
G                                      C
Use their eyes to see the earth, their hearts to make the music,
    Am                             D
Who love the world so very much it hurts,
          Am                       D
Turn that love into a chorus and a verse.
You see, its for you I write this song like it's the one to close the album,

    G                                     C
But here I thought I’d finish before this drizzle was a downpour,
    Am                           D
But please refrain, this aint Manchester,
           Am                              D
No, if you close your eyes you could be anywhere.

        G               C               Am          D
Its the song I tried to write but I was young,
        G          C            Am             D
Its the song about politics and love,
                  G    C    G    C    G    C    G
You know the one.
