POSTED BY JOHN NOLAN HIMSELF =]


Played with capo on the 3rd fret

Intro:Em   G   C  Am7 2x

        Em                                         G         C           
They dragged me from the party kicking and screaming
            Am7                   Em              
Clawing at the carpet and chewing up the scenery
G         C                         Am7             Em          G  C  Am7
Talking to my friends with no regard for decency
Em                                G        C                      Am7
I couldn't tell you what I did, or what it meant to me
                Em                    
But I keep finding all these pieces
G             C                    Am7
Soon they start to form a picture
      Em                                   G        C 
And I can understand what I've done
        Am7            Em    G   C   
But it takes a long time   
    Am7          Em   G   C  Am7
to understand why

Em   G   C 

Am7           Em                                              
You made it home, but I was left on the road
    G               C                            Am7
To sing songs, drink hard to fight fatigue and the cold
Em
Sleep walking through the days
                      G       C                  Am7         Em   G   C  Am7
Just waiting until the clock says it's time to let go
                        Em                          G
Until it's time to give up again and pretend
C                        Am7                 Em
I'm not bound by habit, I'm not a slave to my needs
                 G       C                 Am7
I choose to let go so I must be in control
       Em                             G     C  
This must be who I want to be
         Am7           Em    G   C   
But it takes a long time   
    Am7          Em   G   C 
to understand why
    Am7           Em    G   C                         
It takes a long time   
    Am7          Bm    C Cmaj7
to understand why
 
Bm  C Cmaj7  

Bm                                C          Cmaj7
Constant effort, constant concentration
Bm                                    C         Cmaj7       
Constant concern, constant contemplation
Bm                                           C        Cmaj7         
Constantly checking my tone for accuracy
Bm                                 C   Cmaj7        
Constantly defining my inability

                      Em    G   C   
It takes a long time   
    Am7          Em      G   C 
to understand why
     Am7          Em     G   C   
It takes a long time   
    Am7           Em   G   C 
to understand why
    Am7            Em
 It takes a long time
