                Capo 3

Intro:

| A C Em A | 2x

Verse:

A

I'm walking outside

               C

And I see you arrive

                    Em

I say let's go for a ride

                    G

And have a good old time, whoa

             A

I'm saving up lies

                         C

Or just stay quiet every time

                       Em

While you talkin' your line

                G

Keep everything fine, whoa, fine

Pre Chorus:

A

Between us, I can see

C

Things are not what they used to be

Em

My old friend changed

         G

Or maybe it was me

A

Things get so complicated

C

Jokes made, friendships dissipated

Em

Long silence but I speak

    G

Now so belated

Chorus:

       A                    

I say, hey, wait a minute

C

What's that you said?

Em                                A

I'm Not so sure that I heard you right

          A

Whoa, oh, hey, wait a minute

C

Oh, say that again

Em

You're in the dust

                        A

Drawing a long straight line

Interlude:

A C Em A

Verse:

A

We'd be playing outside

                   C

We'd swing on the swings

                  Em

Shared most everything

                   G

Sit there and even sing

              A

Now I sit and wonder

                      C

Why it's a friendship charade

                       Em

Looking for fights all day

                G

I don't want to play, whoa

Pre Chorus:

          A

But I do, here we go

               C

I fire off another lame remark

You're in the dark

Em                 

No bite, just your bark

                 G

But it leaves a painful mark

    A

Oh, painful mark on your soul

C

Takes its toll

                Em

I might as well fold

I've got my courage up

      G

Gonna roll low

Chorus:

       A                    

I say, hey, wait a minute

C

What's that you said?

Em                                A

I'm Not so sure that I heard you right

          A

Whoa, oh, hey, wait a minute

C

Oh, say that again

Em

You're in the dust

                        A

Drawing a long straight line

Interlude:

| A C Em A | 2x

Verse:

A

We talk and talk

              C

But you never see

                     Em

Unreconstructed defiantly

My old friend changed

            G

Or maybe it was me

       A

Things get so complicated

C

Jokes made, friendships dissipated

Em

I've stayed quiet

                 G

So we don't get alienated

Chorus:

       A                    

I say, hey, wait a minute

C

What's that you said?

Em                                A

I'm Not so sure that I heard you right

          A

Whoa, oh, hey, wait a minute

C

Oh, say that again

Em

You're in the dust

                        A

Drawing a long straight line
