VERSE 1

{strumming pattern: d du udu udu udu}
                    
C#m                           G#m
Time shakes, found you at the water
                     F#m                           C#m
At first you were my father, now I love you like a brother
C#m                          G#m
Earthquakes shake the dust behind you
                         F#m
This world at times will blind you
                          C#m  E (<--{d dud} on these two chords)
Still I know I'll see you there



Chorus:
{strumming pattern: d dudu}

A             F#m                C#m
Come a little closer then you'll see
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A                    F#m               C#m
Things aren’'t always what they seem to be
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A           F#m                               C#m
Do you understand the things that you've been seein'
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A           F#m                               C#m
Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming
A             F#m                C#m
Come a little closer then you'll see



Then on the low E string it's 2---4---

{strumming pattern: d du udu udu udu}

C#m                                      G#m
Heartbreaks, the heavy world's upon your shoulders
                        F#m
Will we burn or we just smolder 
                          C#m
So now I know I found you there
C#m                         G#m        F#m
Ooooh, wanna see if you can change it, change it
                          C#m  E (<--{d dud} on these two chords)
Still I know I'll see you there

Come on, come on, come on
A                    F#m               C#m
Things aren’'t always what they seem to be
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A           F#m                               C#m
Do you understand the things that you've been seein'
C#m
Come on, come on, come on
A           F#m                               C#m
Do you understand the things that you've been dreaming

A            F#m          C#m       F#m   G#m

  And in the evening the sun sets,
F#m      G#m     A
Tomorrow it will rise

Time flies by, they all sing along
     F#m   C#m   F#m  G#m 
Time flies by, by
