Standard Tuning
Capo 4

Intro: G, D, C  2x

[Verse 1]
 G                     D                 C    
I've been around for a little over 20 years
       G          D                      C
And to anyone who needs advice on getting here
Am                D               Am          D      Em    Em     D
Don't ask me, the path i took was not exactly by the book, by the book

      G                    D                  C
I was too young to know and too dumb to figure out
            G                 D                 C
That you can lose yourself in all this traveling around
         Am               D         Am               D        Em     
When you reach a point of no return losing touch with lessons learned, 
Em       D
lessons learned

Am              D               G
Let me tell you now where i went wrong
Am           D            G               Am 
Hollywood is just another place i don't belong

[Chorus]
                G                        D
Let's go to the middle where time stands still
          Em           C   
Let's get lost in those hills
              G                 D
Live a little closer to what is true
        Em           C
I'll be me and you be you

G, D, C  2x

[Verse 2]
    G               D            C
I'm finding out the ways of this world
       G             D                  C    
Can be overcome with one boy's love for just one girl
        Am          D                Am            D               Em    
And the only way to love yourself is to give your love to someone else,
Em      D
someone else

Am            D                 G 
Don't believe in everything you hear
Am            D                G                  Am
Growing up is more than simply living through the years

[Chorus]
                G                        D
Let's go to the middle where time stands still
          Em           C   
Let's get lost in those hills
              G                 D
Live a little closer to what is true
        Em           C
I'll be me and you be you

[Bridge]
        C 
I'm disappointed in myself
  Am                       Em
I left you on a shelf that i could never reach
  Em                   C                Am
I practiced what you'd always preached against
                       C
But now i'm back in my defense
                     Em                                D
That black and white world we tried to paint is really gray

Am                  D                G
So it took a little time to get this right
Am                 D            G              Am         
The guilty and the innocent are always side by side

[Chorus]
                G                        D
Let's go to the middle where time stands still
          Em           C   
Let's get lost in those hills
              G                 D
Live a little closer to what is true
        Em           C
I'll be me and you be you
        Em           C
I'll be me and you be you
        Em           C      G
I'll be me and you be you
