[Intro]

Bm E


[Verse]

Bm                            E
   He seemed impressed by the way you came in.
  Bm                E 
"Tell us a story I know you're not boring"
Bm                    E
   I was afraid that you would not insist.
Bm                          E
"You sound so sleepy, just take this, now leave me"


[Pre-Chorus]

        Bm
I said please don't slow me down
              E
If I'm going too fast
Bm                    E
You're in a strange part of our town


Bm  F#m  G  A  G  A  F#m  Bm


[Chorus]

Bm   F#m        G        A
Yeah,    the night's not over
  G     A    F#m   Bm
You're not trying hard enough,
Bm  F#m      G         A        G
       Our lives are changing lanes
A   F#m    Bm    Bm   F#m
You ran me off the road
     G       A
The wait is over
 G   A    F#m   Bm
I'm now taking over
Bm  F#m      G         A 
  You're no longer laughing
 G   A     F#m    Bm    Bm (back to the verse's strumming pattern)  E
I'm not drowning fast enough.

[Verse]

Bm                    E
  Now every time that I look at myself
Bm                           E
"I thought I told you this world is not for you"
Bm                        E
  The room is on fire as she's fixing her hair
Bm                          E    
"You sound so angry, just calm down, you found me"


[Pre-Chorus]

        Bm
I said please don't slow me down

You're in a strange part of our town

Bm  F#m      G         A        G
       Our lives are changing lanes

You ran me off the road
     G       A
The wait is over

I'm now taking over
Bm  F#m      G         A 
  You're no longer laughing
 G   A     F#m    Bm
I'm not drowning fast enough.


Some chords are implied by the harmony. I rated it intermediate because of the rapid chords changes.
