Em9                   C2(add#4)                    D2sus(no 5)     G5  D2/F#
Thank God I'm back in my car, and drivin' home, and drivin' home.
Em9                           C2(add#4)          D2
'Cause the air was thin and so cold back in there.
          Em7                     A7sus
It was my first time, won't be my last time
        C2                   D2                       Em9
And the questions rise, expectations fall in light of it all.
                        C2(add#4)          D2sus(no 5)  G5         D2/F#
There aren't words to say; words aren't remembered, but presence is.
Em9                     C2(add#4)             D2             E7
   A good friend once told me, and he was there, he was there.
                    A7sus4        C2                  D2
But she wasn't there.  And it's not fair, and it's not fair.

G5                   G/F#       Em7                          D2
    What crimes have you committed, demanding such a penance,
                       C2                                   G5
that couldn't wait for five more minutes and a cry for help?
                   G/F#     Em7                        D2
'Cause this room is so peaceful and this room is so quiet.
3rd time to CODA**                                   2nd time to CODA*
                 Em7                C2              Em9
And I hate the silence, and I can't walk the center aisle.


                                     C2(add#4)
Well, I've been here for over three hours,
D2sus(no 5)            G5  D2/F#
            behind the flowers,
Em9                      C2(add#4)      D2          Em7
   so beautiful and young.  And so alive, and so in need of someone,
           A7sus4                           C2           D.S. Al CODA %
someone to talk to them.  'Cause theirs are fragile lives.


*CODA
Em7                          A7sus4
   And I think about my brother,
Em7                     A7sus4
   and how i just stood there
Em7                        A7sus4                C2
   with my hands in my pockets and my heart in my throat.


Em9                        C2(add#4)            D2sus(no 5)       G5  D2/F#
   Thank God I'm back in my car and drivin' home, and drivin' home.
Em9                    C2(add#4)       D2          Em7
   But in that place I leave all my days of taking life for granted
           A7sus4               Em7
   and the words I wrote for her and my best friend crying,
A7sus4                 C2      D.S. al CODA %
   and a young girls lying on all out hearts.


**CODA
Em7
lence.
C2                 Em7                C2              Em9
  And I hate the silence, and I can't walk the center aisle
