[Intro]
Em C G D x2

[Verse 1]
Em            C                           G           D
You know me well, but I know I don’t belong here.
Em                  C                   G            D
I've tried through time just to make my song clear.
Em         C                 G             D
But who am I without my reputation?
Em          C                  G        D
Can I stand up to my own expectations?

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                    C
In a different world, in a different time,
   G                  D
I knew my purpose, I felt so alive,
Em                     C
Now I start once more, I have been reborn.
  G                    D
A flake in a flurry, a drop in a storm.

[Chorus]
     Em               C            G        D
I’ve lost it all what long ago was mine.
    Em                               C              G          D
The music speaks to me but what it’s saying I can’t decide.
        Am7         C  
Putting melody to rhyme.
               Am7                    C
Doesn’t make a difference down the line.
                       Em    C   G   D
It’s just a matter of time.

[Verse 2]
Em                C                   G         D
My friends have gone in the opposite direction.
Em       C                  G         D
Try as I might, I avoid detection.
Em             C                          G      D
Is my choice right, or just a flight of fancy?
Em         C                            G          D
I know my past, it’s the future that I can’t see.

[Pre-Chorus]
Em                    C
In a different world, in a different place.
       G                                 D
I had America’s third most recognizable face.
         Em               C
And then suddenly, out of history,
        G                       D
I’m one in seven-billion and it terrifies me.

[Chorus]
     Em               C            G      D
I’ve lost it all what long ago was mine.
    Em                               C                  G        D
The music speaks to me but what it’s saying I can’t decide.
        Am7             C     
And I’m looking for my sign.
        Am7             C
And I’m hoping I will find it
                Em C G D x2
In a matter of time.

[Verse 3]
Em                       C     
And if I move on, and if I grow old
       G                 D
Will I end up penniless, alone in the cold?
           Em                  C
Or will I find my path, will I find my spark
     G                      
To illuminate me and get me out of the dark?

[Chorus]
Em           C             G            D
     I’ve lost it all what long ago was mine.
     Em                              C                    G        D
The music speaks to me but what it’s saying I can’t decide.
       Am7             C
By the nickel, by the dime.
        Am7            C
It’s a mountain I can climb.
      Am7             C
It’s there for me to find,
                       G
It’s just a matter of time.
