CHRONOLOGY:

INTRO: (CHORUS)

VERSE I:
                Aadd9                 C#m
I thought I was smart I thought I was right

             D             E          
I thought it better not to fight
                      A         F#m          E
I thought there was a virtue in always being cool
           A            C#m             D               E
so when it came time to fight I thought I'll just step aside
         A                    F#m       E   (FILL I&II)
and that time would prove you wrong and you would be the fool


CHORUS:
        A              C#m                   D            E
I don't know where the sun beams end and the star lights begin
           A     F#m    E  
It's all a mystery

VERSE II:
      Aadd9       C#m
Oh to fight is to defend if it's not
D                E                
Now than tell me when would be the 
A                   F#m              E
time that you would stand up and be a man
       A            C#m               D            E
for to lose I could accept but to surrender I just wet and regretted 
         A   F#m         E (FILL I&II)
This moment,     oh that I, I was a fool                            

CHORUS:

VERSE III:
            Aadd9      C#m
Cause I’m a man, not a boy          
              D                E                  
and there are things you can’t avoid 
            A                      F#m               E
you have to face them when you are not prepared to face them 
     A          C#m                  D                  E
Oh I would if I could, but your with him now it’d do no good         
              A              F#m               E (FILL I&II)
I should have fought him but instead I let him...take me            

CHORUS:

BRIDGE: D    E    D   E (FILL I&II)

CHORUS:

END: Aadd9
