CHORDS + LYRICS:


Intro: 

Main riff 2 times


Verse 1:

               Em                     Am              
I didn't come here trying to find forgiveness
               Em                 Am
I didn't come here looking for a fix
               Em               Am
I didn't come here in hopes of seeing
               Em             Am
How the un-forsaken get their kicks


Pre-chorus:

A                              G
It's like a cry for help nobody hears
  A                           G
Close as you can get but I'm still nowhere near


Chorus:

    B   (D-C#) B    (D-E)        B (D-C#)        
Now I'm just down here waiting on a sign
    B       (A-B)   B (D-C#) 
I'm running out of time
     B   (D-E)      B   (D-C#)
I'm here waiting on a sign, look


Verse 2:

Mother's only happy as her saddest child
To learn to live without can take a while
And it's a long way back to anywhere
And it's not too late, oh but it's getting there


Pre-chorus:

It like a cry for help that nobody hears
Close as you can get but I'm still nowhere near


Chorus:

I'm just here waiting on your sign
I'm running out of time
I'm waiting, waiting on a sign


[Solo on instrumental verse / prechorus / chorus]


Verse 3:

So you blow a veil of smoke
To protect yourself from the joke
Look around this room
And say, "Man, I don't belong here"

So many sides to the truth
But only one side to a fact
What will we do
With what we can't take back?


Pre-chorus:

Like a cry, like a cry for help that nobody hears
Close as you can get but I'm still nowhere near


Chorus:

I'm just down here waiting on a sign
I'm running, I'm running out of time
I'm waiting on a sign
Oh, I'm waiting on a sign

I'm just, got me here waiting on a sign
I'm just waiting on a sign
I'm just waiting on a sign
Just waiting on a sign
