SONG: Point / Counterpoint 
ARTIST: Streetlight Manifesto

The fill between verses that goes D A E A can alternately be played A  D E in some places. I think
it sounds better, although the first one is more accurate to the original song. Try slowing the tempo
of the song if you're having trouble.

[Chorus]
E             D         A             E         A
   I've got a gun in my hand but that gun won't cock
       D               A                E             A
And my finger's on the trigger but that trigger seems locked
      D          A              E         A
And I can't stop staring at the tick-tock clock
    D         A             E          A
And even if I could I would never give up
       D       A           E            A
With a vest on my chest, a bullet in my lung
  D                 A             E      A
I can't believe I'm dying with my song unsung
   D             A              E       A
So if and when I die, won't you bury me alone?
             D            A             E            A
Because I'll never get to heaven if I'm singing this song:

E
D  A  E  A       (x4)

[Verse 1]
                       D                        A
If there was something wrong would you be oh-so strong?
                              D                     A
Would you do what it takes to move this hollow life along?
                               D                              A
I'd like to think I would, you know I'd like to think I would
                         D                        A
But I can guarantee that what you see is not reality
                           D                            A
And every time she makes a point, I make a counterpoint
                       D                        A
She said it's easy but in the end you'll have no choice
              D                           A
And you know, that's only just the way it goes
                        D                        A
(You said it right man, that is just the way it goes)

[Prechorus]
                      D                   A
And the days, and the days they seem like forever
                      D                   A
And the days, and the days they seem like forever
    D                  A
But forever isn't ever enough

[Verse 2]
                   D                                 A
I'd like to sing a song -- Promise you won't be long
                            D                              A
I'll try not to be long but I don't want to get this story wrong
                          D                             A
There was a kid who never cared about the little things
                              D                        A
Don't even bother because I'm tired and I'm sick of it
                           D                               A
And every time she makes a point, I'll make a counterpoint
                       D                         A
She said it's easy but in the end you'll have no choice
                    D                    A
And you know that's only just the way it goes
                        D                       E
(You said it right man, that is just the way it goes)

D   E

[Chorus]
E             D         A             E         A
   I've got a gun in my hand but that gun won't cock
       D               A                E             A
And my finger's on the trigger but that trigger seems locked
      D          A              E         A
And I can't stop staring at the tick-tock clock
    D         A             E          A
And even if I could I would never give up
       D          A        E            A
With a vest on my chest, a bullet in my lung
  D                 A             E      A
I can't believe I'm dying with my song unsung
   D             A              E       A
So if and when I die, won't you bury me alone?
             D            A             E            A
Because I'll never get to heaven if I'm singing this song:

[Bridge]
B       D                     A
Oh, you don't know where I've been
D  A  E  A      (x2)

B       D                    A
Oh, you don't know what I've seen
D  A  E  A      (x2)

[Verse 3]
A                  D                             A
If I did something right, would you give up this fight?
                                 D                              A
Would you say you were wrong and maybe someone else was kind of right
                                 D                                A
I'd like to think you would, you know I'd like to think you would
                         D                       A
But I can guarantee that what you get is an apology
                 D                     A
Jump back to the day we met, I never
                      D                      A
Thought that it would end this way, if ever
          D                      A
I let you down, I want to ask of you
                  D                           A
To take it down a notch and we can talk it on through

[Prechorus]
                      D                   A
And the days, and the days they seem like forever
                      D                   A
And the days, and the days they seem like forever
    D                  A
But forever isn't ever enough

[Verse 4]
                   D                                 A
I'd like to sing a song -- Promise you won't be long
                            D                              A
I'll try not to be long but I don't want to get this story wrong
                            D                             A
There was a chick who never cared about the little things
                       D                       A
Don't bother, 'cause I still don't give a shit
                           D                               A
And every time she makes a point, I'll make a counterpoint
                       D                         A
She said it's easy but in the end you'll have no choice
                    D                    A
And you know that's only just the way it goes
                        D                       E
(You said it right man, that is just the way it goes)

D   E

[Chorus]
E             D         A             E         A
   I've got a gun in my hand but that gun won't cock
       D               A                E             A
And my finger's on the trigger but that trigger seems locked
      D          A              E         A
And I can't stop staring at the tick-tock clock
    D         A             E          A
And even if I could I would never give up
       D       A           E            A
With a vest on my chest, a bullet in my lung
  D                 A             E      A
I can't believe I'm dying with my song unsung
   D             A              E       A
So if and when I die, won't you bury me alone?
             D            A             E            A
Because I'll never get to heaven if I'm singing this song:

[Bridge]
B       D                     A
Oh, you don't know where I've been
D  A  E  A      (x2)

B       D                    A
Oh, you don't know what I've seen
D  A  E  A      (x6)
(mute last A)

[Bridge Verse 1]
A
So tell me friend: how's it going to end?
         D
When the shit goes down and there's no one left around to get your back
       A
You'll crack, you'll smile and agree
          D
With everything they say, they'll try to tell you that it's all okay
         A
But it's not and you're shot, you're bleeding pretty bad
        D
and you can't stop thinking about the things you never had
       A
Like a wife and a kid and the things you never did
       D                                           A                    D
You're running around, you're living a life that's empty in the end, my friend

D  A  E  A      (x2)

[Bridge]
B          D                    A
No, you'll take back all you've said
D  A  E  A      (x2)

B            D                 A
Oh, when the regrets fill your head
D  A  E  A      (x2)

[Bridge Verse 2]
B                        D                   
Trust me I've been there before
                      B
I would not wish it upon my greatest enemy
     D                          B
What irony, once friends, but I find: 
               D                         A
you'll have to learn this lesson on your own

D  A  E  A       (x4)

[Verse 5]
D                  A              E           A
so I waited by the phone but that phone never rang
      D       A                  E              A
and I sang so loud so I wouldn't hear the bang
         D          A          E             A
when the bang never came and I never got the call
D        A            E        A
Fuck it! Thank you! I love you all!
    D                 A              E           A
Oh, some are going to say that we're doomed to repeat
        D              A          E          A
All our past mistakes, great, but that's not me
    D          A           E          A
and even if it was I would always disagree
        D            A              E         A
because in the end I always get the better of me

D  A  E  A      (x2)

[Chorus]
E             D         A             E         A
   I've got a gun in my hand but that gun won't cock
       D               A                E             A
And my finger's on the trigger but that trigger seems locked
      D          A              E         A
And I can't stop staring at the tick-tock clock
    D         A             E          A
And even if I could I would never give up
       D       A           E            A
With a vest on my chest, a bullet in my lung
  D                 A             E      A
I can't believe I'm dying with my song unsung
   D             A              E       A
So if and when I die, won't you bury me alone?
             D            A             E            A
Because I'll never get to heaven if I'm singing this song:

[Bridge]
B        D                   A
Oh, I'll take you where I've been
D  A  E  A      (x2)

B        D                  A
Oh, I'll show you what I've seen
D  A  E  A      (x4)

In the verse it should be A and E instead of D and A.
