[Intro]


The test beings.....now!


A C#m D E

A F#m E  



[Verse I]

                Aadd9                  C#m
I thought I was smart, I thought I was right

             D             E
I thought it better not to fight, I thought there

      A         F#m          E           A  
was a virtue in always being cool. So it came time

   C#m             D              E
to fight I thought I'll just step aside and at that
 
A                     F#m             E                A
time would prove you wrong, and that you would be the fool



[Chorus I]


        A              C#m                  D         E
I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlight begins

           A      F#m    E    
it's all a mystery........


  4/4.......

[Verse II]


      Aadd9       C#m                D
Oh to fight is to defend if it's not now

             E                  A                  F#m
then tell me when would be the time that you would stand up

         E           A            C#m           D
and be a man. For to lose I could accept but to surrender

       E                       A     F#m         E            A
I just wept and regretted this moment.   Oh that I, I was the fool.



[Chorus II]


        A              C#m                  D         E
I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlight begins

           A      F#m    E                 A          C#m
it's all a mystery........     And I don't know how a man decides

       D                 E                A        F#m    E
what's right for his own life, It's all a mystery..........

                         
  4/4.........            ..and I don't know..    ..mystery..

[Verse III]


             A         C#m                D
'Cause I'm a man not a boy, and there are things

          E                  A                   F#m
you can't avoid, you have to face them when your not

            E               Aadd9   C#m
prepared to face them. If I could I would but you're

     D                   E                   A
with them now it'd do no good, I should have fought him

       F#m             E         A
but instead I let him... let him go.



[Chorus III]


        A              C#m                  D         E
I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlight begins

           A      F#m    E                 A          C#m
it's all a mystery........     And I don't know how a man decides

       D                 E                A        F#m    E
what's right for his own life, It's all a mystery..........
