Over My Head (Cable Car) - The Fray - "How to Save a Life"

Capo on first fret.


[Verse 1]

   C
I never knew
    Em              G             C
I never knew that everything was falling through
        Em        G               C
That everyone I knew was waiting on a queue
    Em       G               Am   Em        D
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
                     C
But that's how it's got to be
       Em              G               C
It's coming down to nothing more than apathy
      Em             G              C
I'd rather run the other way than stay and see
      Em        G           Am      Em        D
The smoke and who's still standing when it clears


[Chorus]

C    G    Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C        G     Em      D
Over my head, over my head
       C    G              Em     G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      Am       G          Em   D    C
She's on your mind, she's on your mind

Em  G  C
Em  G


[Verse 2]

         C
Let's rearrange
   Em              G                C
I wish you were a stranger I could disengage
    Em           G              C
To say that we agree and then never change
    Em   G            Am        Em    D
Soften a bit until we all just get along
            C
But that's disregard
     Em           G              C
You find another friend and you discard
        Em          G          C
As you lose the argument in a cable car
     Em   G            Am    Em     D
Hanging above as the canyon comes between


[Chorus]

C    G    Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C        G     Em      D
Over my head, over my head
       C    G              Em     G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      Am       G          Em   D    C
She's on your mind, she's on your mind


[Bridge]

       C          Em       G           C
And suddenly I become a part of your past
       Em          G              C
I'm becoming the part that don't last
      Em    G            Am
I'm losing you and its effortless


[Verse 3]

C                        Em            G
Without a sound we lose sight of the ground 
         C
In the throw around
         Em              G         C
Never thought that you wanted to bring it down
        Em         G            Am
I won't let it go down till we torch it ourselves


[Bridge 2]

G         G/F#
Everyone knows I'm in
Em7             C
Over my head, over my head
       C    G              Em   G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      Am       G          Em  D    C      Em
She's on your mind, she's on your mind...
G          C    Em         G       C
Everyone knows...   she's on your mind...
Em                  G       C
Everyone knows I'm in over my head
Em              G
My head   I'm over my...


[Chorus]

C    G    Em        G
Everyone knows I'm in
C        G     Em      D
Over my head, over my head
       C    G              Em     G
With eight seconds left in overtime
      Am       G          Em   D    C
She's on your mind, she's on your mind

Em   G    C   4X


[Ending]

C

This is pretty good. I dont think this is the way that The Fray plays it but it still sounds nice.
