G            F   C
 Sky cracks open,
G                   F      C
 The wall's fallin' through the floor.
G                F    C
 Just as well to keep it,
F           C       G
 A guessing game in store.
               D            Em
You're with me now, will be again,
                  C
Other points in between.
        G                F   C
And the cruel, cruel mornings
G                   F       C
 Turn to days, it's swim or sink.
                   C/B   Am
If livin' right is easy, what goes wrong,
       G       F  C
You're causin' it    to drown.
G/D            D
Didn't want to turn that way
       G       F  C
You're causin' it    to drown.
G/D            D
Doesn't make a difference now,
       G       F  C     C/B
You're causin' it    to drown,
Am                   C
Silence knows, can't drown a heart.

Happenstance is falling
Through the cracks in each day,
Too close now to change it,
Fool's gold is lighter anyway.

When in doubt, move on,
No need to sort it out.
You're with me now, will be again,
Other points in between.

And I want to find the right side of you.
If living right is easy, what goes wrong,
You're causing it to drown.
Didn't want to turn that way,
You're causing it to drown,
Doesn't make a difference now,
You're causing it to drown.
Silence knows, can't drown a

heart.

That's it.  I didn't have the time to work out the major solo part so
improvise, make it up.  Have fun!
