Intro: Cm  


Verse 1:
          Cm
I used to write
                Bb
I used to write letters 
          G#      Eb
I used to sign my name
                   Cm
I used to sleep at night
                    Bb
Before the flashing lights 
        G#         Eb
settled deep in my brain
                   Cm <   Bass Enters
But by the time we met
               Bb      G#
By the time we met the times 
            Eb     Cm Bb G# Eb 
had already changed


Verse 2:
                   Cm
So I never wrote a letter
                Bb
I never took my true heart 
  G#             Eb
I never wrote it down
                       Cm
So when the lights cut out
            Bb
I was lost standing in the 
G#             Eb  
wilderness downtown


Refrain:
Fm                Eb       Cm  Bb/D Eb
Now our lives are changing fast
Fm                Eb       Cm  Bb/D Eb
Now our lives are changing fast
Bb                  Gm       Fm
Hope that something pure can last
Bb                  Gm       Cm
Hope that something pure can last


Verse 3:
       Cm
But it seems strange
               Bb
How we used to wait 
    G#           Eb
for letters to arrive
                    Cm
But what's stranger still

Is how something so 
 Bb       G#        Eb
small can keep you alive
           Cm
We used to wait
                 Bb
We used to waste hours 
     G#       Eb
just walking around
           Cm
We used to wait
                 Bb
All those wasted lives
       G#             Eb <   Basslines
in the wilderness downtown

I'm gonna sign my name
                    Cm
Like a patient on a table
