Key: A
Until the guitar starts it's basically just an A  

A D x4 

A     
On a drive I'm taking backroads 
D 
High against where the rivers are flowing 
A                        D 
I didn't think that our love had grown 

A 
You had me dead to rights 
         D 
Hey, I'm trying to get some rest  
            A         D 
To keep on moving 

A 
 How you been, you looking back 
     D 
You tried to change your burning boat 
A                        D      G       D 
 Until you realized what you were up against 

A   
I spent all those nights 
     D 
Just trying to take you home 
        A             D    
'Til you released me 

E          A 
Cross the bridge 
    Bm   F#m    E 
To redefine your pain 
        F#m               D 
Then the answer is in your heart 
E         A 
 Wide awake 
  Bm     F#m     E                 D 
I rearrange the way I listen in the dark 
A           E            
Dreaming of starting up  
A      D 
again 

A  D  

         A                        D 
So if you look, you'll find yourself 

You're not the demon in the dark 
     A                           D 
That you and I, yea we'd been through that 

A 
  Can you rectify 
D 
All the time it took you 
                 A    D 
Away from choosing? 

A                          D 
  So as you find yourself flying high up there 
A                               D         G   D 
  When you release me from your heart again (woo!) 
A                           D 
  I'm just a burning man trying to keep the ship 
             A          
From turning over  
D 
again 

E            A     Bm  F#m    E 
  Cross the rich derivative of pain 
        F#m               D 
Crush the burning in your heart 
E          A 
  Wide awake 
    Bm F#m    E                       D 
To redefine the way you listen in the dark 
 A        E    
Dreaming, starting 
     D       F#m               E 
Like a stranded kid in a doorway 
         A     D 
Just burning 
                 A        D 
Yeah we turn the light in 

Then just fade out with A & D until the song ends.
