comes when we will have to part?

First time instumental:

|Fmaj7/C |G/B |Am |G |
5 times then back for verse 2

Second time:

|Fmaj7/C |G/B |Am |G |
Standing in silence Holding my breath Disconnected and dry

|Fmaj7 |G/B |
And though I'm certain that there's nothing left to hold

|Am |G |Fma7/C |
on to to give or to try Some things never change

|G/B |Am |G |
no don't ever change and I'm feeling the cold

|Fmaj7/C |G/B |
Thinking that we're getting older and wiser

|Am |G NC |
When we're just getting old 3.And when you (back for verse 3)

Third time guitar solo (anybody?) over:

|Fmaj7/C |G/B |Am |G |

to fade.

2.And when you feel you're near the end
And there's a stranger where once was a friend
And you are left without a word
Only the whispers that you've overheard

3.And when you feel you're near the end
And what once burned so bright is growing dim
And when you see what's been achieved
Is there a feeling that you've been deceived?
