         G                     Cadd9
Do you know who you are? Do you ever think about it?
             G                            Cadd9
If you were told it's a place, would you drive until you found it?
           G                          Cadd9
Would you turn down a street that you know would lead 
                    Dadd9
To where you were before?
            Cadd9                    Dadd9            Cadd9
You call it home, but are you really sure that's your home? 

        G                           Cadd9 
Do you know what you want?  Have you ever reconsidered
         G                        Cadd9
What a trip we are on and it's the only ride we're given?
              G
If you could fly, would you try?
           Cadd9                            Dadd9
Would your feet stay firmly planted on the ground?
               Cadd9                  Dadd9     Cadd9
Can you explain why the only place you go is to waste?


        G
Now you go to work and you work all day
    Cadd9
You smoke and bitch on your coffee break
     G
You tell some jokes to kill that time
        Cadd9
Til the boss comes back and at the stroke of 5
    Em                  Em*
You hit those bars, you have some drinks
     G                 Am
You drown in all your long lost dreams
   C        C*        D
Oh no, 
                     G             Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere
                     G             Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere


         G                       Cadd9
Do you know who you love? Can you say those words with feeling?
             G                           Cadd9
Or when you look in those eyes, is there someone else you're seeing?
         G                      Cadd9                         
Do you dream of a day you could take the love 
                 Dadd9
Without running away?
           Cadd9                      Dadd9
What is it now?  Do you need a little space? 
                   Cadd9
Or are you wanting out?


         G
Now you go to work and you work all day
    Cadd9
You smoke and bitch on your coffee break
     G
You grab that phone, rehearse those lines
         Cadd9
Then you call home sayin' you gotta work tonight
    Em                  Em*
You hit those bars, you buy some drinks
         G                   Am
For the first one who looks good 
                   C         C*        D
And thinks you're cool
                   Eadd9      Dadd9     Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere
        Dadd9      Eadd9      Dadd9     Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere    
                    Em7*
You're closer to nowhere

               Cadd9*           Em7*
You fake it so well, nobody can tell
                 Cadd9*                  G        Cadd9
You buy what they sell, you're going places
                 G        Cadd9
You're going places


        G
Now you go to work and you work all day
    Cadd9
You smoke and bitch on your coffee break
      G
You share your plans and you swear you'll quit
      Cadd9
Maybe next year or the year after it
    Em                  Em*
You hit those bars, you have some drinks
     G                    Am
You take those pills, you go to sleep
    Em              Em*
You wake up someday all alone
        G     Am             C       C*      D
You realize another year is gone
                     G        Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere
                     G        Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere


     G
And all these signs will be your guides
   Cadd9
But you must pay attention
     G
And all the lights that line the side
    Cadd9                      G          Cadd9
Are beautiful don't miss them
                     G          Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere
                     G          Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere
                     G          Cadd9
You're closer to nowhere
                     G        
You're closer to nowhere
