Key: F#
F#                                A#m 
We live on a lake, and sometimes there are waves; 
          B                       A#m        C# 
I guess that explains why we've been led astray.  

F#                                                          A#m 
Because if the west is what we need, you can bet we'll be heading east. 
          B                 A#m               C# 
We're so easily distracted by the slightest breeze. 
              F#                          A#m 
When there's too many roads, and far too many shows; 
    B                                  A#m   C# 
all these empty highs become too many lows. 

    B                      A#m     D#m       C# 
We walk through crowded streets to be by ourselves; 
    E          C# 
screaming for help... 

F#       A#m   
I won't wait  
B             F# 
to hear them say, 
B           F#        E     C# 
'You were wrong all along.' 
F#           A#m 
We've been drowning, 
B               F# 
and we've been doubting; 
B                F#       E        C# 
I think it's time for a change... 

       F#                            A#m 
We're building a home, but it's not made of stone; 
               B            F#             C# 
a place where we can go to find a lasting hope. 
          F#                           A#m 
With our anxious pace, life's like an endless chase; 
           B                                   F#     C# 
where we don't know who's after us, but we run anyways... 

    B                      A#m     D#m       C# 
We walk through crowded streets to be by ourselves; 
    E          C# 
screaming for help... 

F#       A#m   
I won't wait  
B             F# 
to hear them say, 
B           F#        E     C# 
'You were wrong all along.' 
F#           A#m 
We've been drowning, 
B               F# 
and we've been doubting; 
B                F#       E        C# 
I think it's time for a change... 


F#    C#   D#m     B 
We almost left without saying goodbye.
