[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

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


[Verse]

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


[Chorus]

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