[Verse]

C                    G/B   
Step one you say we need to talk
    Am                 G        G/B    C
He walks you say sit down it’s just a talk
             G/B           Am
He smiles politely back at you
             G       G/B      C
You stare politely right on through
               G/B          Am
Some sort of window to your right
             G       G/B      C
As he goes left and you stay right
              G/B             Am
Between the lines of fear and blame
                   G     G/B       
And you begin to wonder why you came


[Chorus]

  F             G                Am
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            C             G
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    F                   G                Am
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             C             G
Had I known how to save a life



[Verse]

C                    G/B   
Let him know that you know best
    Am                 G        G/B    C
Cause after all you do know best
             G/B           Am
Try to slip past his defence
             G       G/B      C
Without granting innocence
               G/B          Am
Lay down a list of what is wrong
             G       G/B      C
The things you’ve told him all along
                   G     G/B       
And pray to God he hears you

[Chorus]

  F             G                Am
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            C             G
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    F                   G                Am
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             C             G
Had I known how to save a life


[Verse]

C                    G/B   
As he begins to raise his voice
    Am                 G        G/B    C
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
             G/B           Am
Drive until you lose the road
             G       G/B      C
Or break with the ones you’ve followed
               G/B          Am
He will do one of two things 
             G       G/B      C
He will admit to everything
              G/B             Am
Or he’ll say he’s just not the same
                   G     G/B       
And you’ll begin to wonder why you came


[Chorus]

  F             G                Am
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            C             G
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    F                   G                Am
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             C             G
Had I known how to save a life
