You Can Only Get So High - Richie Sambora

Tune the guitar Half-Step Down

Verse 1:
Am                           F
   Hard time waking up this morning
C                              G
   Closed the blinds so I can see 
Am                             F
   First light came without a warning 
            C                                   G
   And the sunrise scared the daylights out of me 

Verse 2:
   Downed seven Tylenols for breakfast 
   Chased it down with last night's cloudy memory 
   Empty bottle preach the gospel 
   Another shot ain't coming close to saving me
                    C   G   Am   F
   Close to saving me 

   You can only get so high 
   Then you gotta come down 
   Twisted in the clouds just like a kite 
   Fighting just to stay up in the sky 
   Flying in a freefall 
   Before you know it is your last call 
             Am                  Am/G         D
   I'll take one more drink and two packs of lights
                      Dm                    G
   Drowning with the demons in disguise
                 C            Am
   You can only get so high 
                 C            Am
   You can only get so high 

Verse 3:
   Life was one long after party 
   My welcome was too long of a stay 
   The good times sing the same old story 
   But they leave it out how the bill is getting paid 

Verse 4:
   You keep yourself 10 second chances 
   Say I ain't quitting, I'm just splitting for a while 
   Ended like some many bad romances 
   One more victory lap before you say goodbye 


   G                           Am
   Endless limitations that I keep on gettin' by
      F                                    D
   I guess I'll stop by sitting down with me, myself and I 
       G                 E7            Am          D
   I think it's best to leave my desperation to desire 


Chorus 2:
   You can only get so high 
   Till you're bottom of a breakdown 
   You can only hurt so many times 
   Before the truth falls from the lie 
   Flying in the freefall
   Just before you hit the last wall 
   You're only getting one more chance and one last goodbye 
   It took a lifetime to realize 
   You can only get so high 
   You can only get so high 
   Then you got a come down
   Then you got a come down
