Em††† G††††††† I'm an accident

C†††††† D††††††† I was driving way too fast†††††††††††

Em††† G††††††† Couldn't stop though

C†††††† D††††††† So I let the moment last

 

Em††† G††††††† I'm for rollin'

C†††††† D††††††† I'm for tossin' in my sleep

Em††† G††††††† It's not guilt though

C†††††† D††††††† It's not the company I keep

 

Em††† G††††††† People my age

C†††††† D††††††† They don't do the things I do

Em††† G††††††† They go somehwere

C†††††† D††††††† While I run away with you

 

Em††† G††††††† I got my friends

C†††††† D††††††† And I got my children too

Em††† G††††††† I got her love

C†††††† D††††††† She's got my love too

 

Em††† G††††††† I can't hear you

C†††††† D††††††† But I feel the things you say

Em††† G††††††† I can't see you

C†††††† D††††††† But I see what's in my way

 

Em††† G††††††† Now I'm floatin'

C†††††† D††††††† Cause I'm not tied to the ground

Em††† G††††††† Words I've spoken

C†††††† D††††††† Seem to leave a hollow sound

 

Em††† G††††††† On the long plain

C†††††† D††††††† See the rider in the night

Em††† G††††††† See the chieftain

C†††††† D††††††† See the braves in cool moonlight

 

Em††† G††††††† Who will love them

C†††††† D††††††† When they take another life

Em††† G††††††† Who will hold them

C†††††† D††††††† When they tremble for the knife

 

Em††† G††††††† Voicemail numbers

C†††††† D††††††† On an old computer screen

Em††† G††††††† Rows of lovers

C†††††† D††††††† Parked forever in a dream

 

Em††† G††††††† Screaming sirens

C†††††† D††††††† Echoing across the bay

Em††† G††††††† To the old boats

C†††††† D††††††† From the city far away

 

Em††† G††††††† Homeless heroes

C†††††† D††††††† Walk the streets of their hometown

Em††† G††††††† Rows of zeros

C†††††† D††††††† On a field that's turning brown

 

Em††† G††††††† They play baseball

C†††††† D††††††† They play football under lights

Em††† G††††††† They play card games

C†††††† D††††††† And we watch them every night

 

Em††† G††††††† Need distraction

C†††††† D††††††† Need romance and candlelight

Em††† G††††††† Need random violence

C†††††† D††††††† Need entertainment tonight

 

Em††† G††††††† Need the evidence

C†††††† D††††††† Want the testimony of

Em††† G††††††† Expert witnesses

C†††††† D††††††† On the brutal crimes of love

 

Em††† G††††††† I was too tired

C†††††† D††††††† To see the news when I got home

Em††† G††††††† Pulled the curtain

C†††††† D††††††† Fell into bed alone

 

Em††† G††††††† Started dreaming

C†††††† D††††††† Saw the rider once again

Em††† G††††††† In the doorway

C†††††† D††††††† Where she stood and watched for him

 

Em††† G††††††† I'm not present

C†††††† D††††††† I'm a drug that makes you dream

Em††† G††††††† I'm an aerostar

C†††††† D††††††† I'm a cutlass supreme

 

Em††† G††††††† In the wrong lane

C†††††† D††††††† Trying to turn against the flow

Em††† G††††††† I'm the ocean

C†††††† D††††††† I'm the giant undertow

 

Em††† G††††††† I'm the ocean

C†††††† D††††††† I'm the giant undertow

Em††† G††††††† I'm the ocean

C†††††† D††††††† I'm the giant undertow
