No Capo

You're looking for a way out
              B5     A5    E5 
I can feel it
Come on, show me where it hurts
                     B5     A5    E5 
Maybe I can heal it

Your feelings are your own
                                    B5     A5    E5 
Now you keep 'em under lock and key
You got me drivin' through the streets
                             B5     A5    E5 
For an answer to the mystery

    G5             D5                  A5
The world's still weak on Charleston Avenue
   G5          D5                A5
Outside that vacant Starlight Motel I see you
  G5                 D5
Laughing with your girlfriends
       A5                        D5     A5       E5      
Not a care in the world, not a burden on your mind

It was a matter of time

There's a panic in this house 
                          B5     A5    E5 
and it's bound to surface
Just walkin' through the front door 
                B5      A5    E5
makes me nervous

It's creepin' up the floorboards,
                               B5      A5    E5                  
got me wondering where I stand
I cannot put out the fire,
                                   B5      A5    E5
I got a book of matches in my hand

G5             D5                   A5
When we first met, headstrong and filled with doubt
G5                         D5                     A5
Made just enough hustling tables that summer to take you out
      G5                  D5             A5                   D5
I was fallin' back on forever when you told me about your heart
            A5       E5 
You laid it on the line

G5                  D5
Laughing with your girlfriends
       A5                       D5      A5   G5
Not a care in the world, not a burden on your mind

(You laid it on the line)

G5              A5               D5    A5    G5
It was just a matter, It was a matter of time

   G5                 A5 
We found ourselves a place
       D5           G5
We belong in it forever
           D5              A5
Ain't that what it's all about?
         G5                A5
Make the promise and keep it
     D5               G5
Come hell or high water
      D5   A5      G5
We'd figure it out

           G5                 A5
It was the night, it was the moon
           D5                  G5
It was the green grass in the garden
    G5               A5
The victory and the sin

G5                    A5
I know you're weary, look at me
D5               G5
Flailin' in the corner
Here's the towel
A5               G5
Go on, throw it in

G5        D5         G5
It was a matter of time
G5                       D5               A5
Can't you see that it's tearing me up inside?
G5                          A5
Look what's laying at our feet
           G5                   A5
That's the wreckage of broken dreams
    D5                      A5
And burned out
G5             A5       G5
And it's here on our street
