[Intro]
(played in the order given and with ska upstrokes)

    D    A    Em   Bm   Em   F#m  Em
e|--5----5----7----2----7----9----7---*12-12-9-9-10-10-9---|
B|--7----5----8----3----8---10----8------------------------|
G|--7----6----9----4----9---11----9------------------------|
D|--7----7----9----4----9---11----9------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|
(*Play this 1st time only. After this, play A in place of riff)
The second time this is played, I believe a second guitar comes in with
the bass playing these barre chords, and it gets louder as the
progression goes on:

e|---------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------|
G|--7-------9---4---9---11---12----------|
D|--7---7---9---4---9---11---12---7------|
A|--5---7---7---2---7----9---10---7------|
E|------5-------------------------5------|
    D   A   E   B   E   F#   G    A

(Play this while 1st guitar keeps playing the ska progression)

D         A         E            B             E
So here I am, doing everything I can.  Holding on to what I
F#             G           A
am, pretending I'm a superman.

[Verse]
(ska upstrokes)
D             A     Em               Bm
I'm trying to keep  the ground on my feet.
   G                 D            A
It seems the world's falling down around me.
D                  A     Em               Bm
The nights are all long, I'm singing this song
   G                D                 A
to try and make the answers more than maybe.

(This part uses barre chords)
        G  D   A            G    E  D       G
And I'm so con-fused, about what to do, sometimes I wanna
A                D
throw it all away.

D         A           Em            Bm            Em
So here I am, looking older all the time. Growing older
        F#m           Em            A
all the time, feeling younger in my mind.

D             A     Em               Bm
I'm trying to sleep. I lost count of sheep.
   G              D            A       D
My mind is racing faster every minute.  What could
     A    Em                   Bm     G
I do more? Yeah I'm really not sure. I know I'm
        D             A
running circles but I can't quit.
        G  D  A           G    E  D
And I'm so confused about what to do.
    G               A
Sometimes I want to throw it all away.

[Bridge]
     Am  Em  Bm
e|---5---7---7------|
B|---5---8---7------|
G|---5---9---7------|
D|---7---9---9------|
A|---7-------9------|
E|---5-------7------|

Am                        Bm
Controlling everything in sight, I'm feeling weak I don't
     Em                                 Am             Bm
feel right. You're telling me I have to change, telling me
          Em                         Am         Bm
to act my age. But if all that I can do is just sit and
           Em                                Am
watch time go, then I'll have to say goodbye. Life's too
Bm                Em               Hi F      Hi G
short to watch it fly, so watch it flyyyyyyyyyy.
