	  [ch]F#/G[/ch]		C/G
In the waiting days ahead
       D			      G	
I've got to to look back down the road
  [ch]F#/G[/ch]			  C/G   D    G
I know that it's not too late

	   [ch]F#/G[/ch]		 C/G
All the stupid things I said
       D		     G
the people I hurt and let down
	 [ch]F#/G[/ch]		  C/G	  D	C
well I hope that it's not my fate


	   D	    Bm	     C	      C	
To keep defeating... my own self
           D	    Bm	    C
and keep repeating... yesterday


C/G	  [ch]Bm/G[/ch]     G	       Em/G
I can't keep defeating myself
C/G	  [ch]Bm/G[/ch]    G	    C/G		  C/G	C/G	G
I can't keep repeating the mistakes of my youth


        [ch]F#/G[/ch]	        C/G
In the dark of night I might
      D		         G
be able to make myself think
	   [ch]F#/G[/ch]		C/G   D	G
that I'm still a younger man

	 [ch]F#/G[/ch]			  C/G
When the light of day shines down
	D	               G
there's no way to get around it
      [ch]F#/G[/ch]	     C/G	D	C
I am not the younger man


	 D	    Bm	 C	C	
I keep defeating... my own self
            D	     Bm	    C
and keep repeating... yesterday


C/G	  [ch]Bm/G[/ch]     G	       Em/G
I can't keep defeating myself
C/G	  [ch]Bm/G[/ch]    G	   C/G		 C/G	C/G	C
I can't keep repeating the mistakes of my youth


	      D	        Bm
The choice is mine for making
	 C	   C
a better road ahead
              D	              Bm				    
The road that I've been taking
	           C
heading for a dead end

C/G	   [ch]Bm/G[/ch]    G		C/G   C/G   C/G
But it's not too late to turn around

In the final moments I
D			      G		
hope that I know that I tried
    [ch]F#/G[/ch]	 C/G	D	C
to do the best I could


	  D	    Bm	   C	  C	
To stop defeating... my own self
           D	     Bm	    C
and stop repeating... yesterday
