Take my breath away, I don't need it anyway

cause I'm fine here in my old forgotten world

where I can be myself, left with the hand I'm dealt

and it's hard to get a grip when you're holding onto something you just let slip away


***************************************************************************************

Pre-Chorus

chords are played arpeggiated by an acoustic guitar

Dm        C              Bb    F
All these thoughts stuck in my mind

Dm       C          Bb      
spinning round like endless

   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +    1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +

   time               for         once  in      my      mind

*************************************************************************************

Chorus

chords are played by piano and bass


Dm             Bb                      F
    I do wanna feel something you call real

                   A                                Dm
I don't think that I've got time for these scars to heal

                        Bb                         F        
   And the days just go by leaving questions in my mind

                      A  
I guess I'll find the answers some day in another life


guitar plays a lead riff under that (repeated x2):

Here with my old friend, the silence in the end

And it rings so loud that I cannot pretend

I just close my eyes and ask a thousand whys

Will it change or stay the same? Will it ever go away?

The question still remains

lyrics:

Warning signs read desolation

On the road of desperation

Happiness machines, I'm coming clean

What can you do for me?


************************************************************************************

Chorus x2

chords played with electric guitar this time


Dm             Bb                      F
    I do wanna feel something you call real

                   A                                Dm
I don't think that I've got time for these scars to heal

                        Bb                         F        
   And the days just go by leaving questions in my mind

                      A  
I guess I'll find the answers some day in another life



this chords progression is then repeated again

Dm   Bb   F   A

Outro:

chords played by piano only


Dm   Bb   F   A


   Dm         Bb           F
So here now I stand at the end

     A                 Dm
Of a dark road out of hell

            Bb          F
It's not so hard as I depart

       A
What a way to become a man
