Am  Asus2  Am   Asus2
Em        Fadd9 Gsus4
C   Csus2  C    C


   [Verse 1]
C
All this talk of getting old
     G/B        Am
It's getting me down my love
                Em               Fadd9
Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown
     Gsus4    C           Csus2  C
This time I'm comin' down


   [Verse 2]
C
And I hope you're thinking of me
   G/B          Am
As you lay down on your side
                    Em                      Fadd9
Now the drugs don't work,They just make you worse
      Gsus4              C          Csus2  C
But I know I'll see your face again


   [Chorus]
C                   Em
Now the drugs don't work
                   Fadd9
They just make you worse
      Gsus4              C          Csus2  C
But I know I'll see your face again


   [Verse 3]
C
But I know I'm on a losing streak
       G/B              Am
'Cause I passed down my old street
                 Em                     Fadd9
And if you wanna show, then just let me know
         Gsus4        C         Csus2  C
And I'll sing in your ear again


   [Chorus]
C                   Em
Now the drugs don't work
                   Fadd9
They just make you worse
      Gsus4              C          Csus2  C
But I know I'll see your face again


   [Bridge]
C            F  Em          Am                 G
'Cause baby, ooh, if heaven calls, I'm coming, too
              F   Em             Am                   G
Just like you said, you leave my life, I'm better off dead


   [Verse 4]

All this talk of getting old
     G/B        Am 
It's getting me down my love
                Em              Fadd9
Like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown
     Gsus4    C           Csus2  C
This time I'm comin' down


   [Chorus]
C                   Em
Now the drugs don't work
                   Fadd9
They just make you worse
      Gsus4              C          Csus2  C
But I know I'll see your face again


   [Bridge]
C            F  Em          Am                 G
