F/C x2

C         F/C                F          Am    C
Know a man,  his face seemed pulled and tense
          F  C        F    C            F     C   Am    C
Like he's riding on a motorbike, in the strongest winds
       F           C                  F           C
So I approach with tact; suggest that he should relax
    F           C      F    C   Am
But he's always moving much too fast

F                        Am        F                 Am          F
Said he'll see me on the flipside, on this trip he's taken for a ride
          C      F         C   F        C
He's been taking, too much on, there he goes
         F      C   F C     Am       F        C
with his perfectly, unkempt clothes; there he goes

     F           C   F/C                      F/C
He's yet to come back,  but I see his picture
                 F       C      Am   F          C    F
Doesn't look the same up on the rack, we go way back

                  Am            F                    Am              F
I wonder bout his insides, it's like his thought are too big for his size
          C             F       C     F      C
He's been taking; where I don't know; off he goes
         F      C   F C    Am     F        C
with his perfectly, unkept hopes; there he goes

F C  4x

          F      C            F     C     F/C
And now I rub my eyes, for he has returned
               F                 C                Am     F
Seems my preconceptions are what should have been burned
             C           F          C     F/C
For he still smiles; and he's still strong
                          F           C         F    C   Am
Nothing's changed but the surrounding bullshit; that has grown

    F        C    F         C
And now he's home and we're laughing
F       C      F       C    F         C   Am     F
Like we always did, my same old, same old friend,
                   C              F            C  F/C
until a quarter to ten, I saw the strain creep in

                           F         C                F  C   Am   F
He seemed distracted and I know just what is going to happen next;
                 C     F          C
before his first step, he is off again


F C  4x
