This is a great song so I decided to do it. 
Can't understand why Nowhere To Here is considered a lesser album,
personally I think it's great! Anyways, please rate, comment, and enjoy!


This is the main guitar part for the verse, 
you can just do simple strummings of the chords...
that works too

Em     C                   G               D
We sat around at night and talked about so many things 
Em         C              G         D
lay on the floor till the morning appeared 
Em             C      G                     D
you laughed at me and said I just don't get it 
Em                    C                G                 D
you said we should be making plans for getting out of here

Em        C           G                   D
Somebody told me when I was just a little kid
Em           C            G          D
don't follow leaders just think for yourself 
Em            C          G               D
but everybody minds everybody else's business here 
Em             C                  G           D
why can't they turn their eyes to somebody else

Tell me no use thinking 
F        C            G
we could ever be something 
F        C             G
we could rise with the stars 
F      C         D
better off as we are 

Em       C          G               D
My older brother he left the day he finished school 
Em            C           G          D
moved down to New York to Washington Square 
Em          C      G                        D
he calls me up and says you should come and see me 
Em                 C             G          D
watch the waves of people rolling everywhere

        G
Tell me no use thinking 
F        C            G
we could ever be something

Em          C           G        D
Late in the evening I'm up in my room 
Em                 C       G              D
trying to think of nothing clear away the day 
Em    C         G           D
I lie awake and let my body wander 
Em          C         G        D
up into the moonlight floating away 


Em C G D (x2)


        G
Tell me no use thinking 
F        C            G
we could ever be something 
F        C             G
we could rise with the stars 
F      C         D
better off as we are
