Silverstein
"Massachusetts (Acoustic)"
This is How the Wind Shifts (Deluxe Edition)

Tuning: Half-step down  


Intro: Am-G-C-G


Verse 1:
              Am
She's cutting out the bruises,
   F             G               Am
Forgetting her excuses for being here again
       F                   C       G      Am
with a suitcase packed and waiting by the door.
                F                  G               Am
In her head, convinced herself she hasn't lost enough to quit.
      F                   C
But tonight she lays here thinking,
 G       F C    G
"What if I just left
       Am     G      F
In the middle of the night
C           G
Back to California
    Am-G
And never look back?"


Chorus:
Am            F
  She'll fantasize about it
C            G                 F
every single day but she can't find it
       G             Am
in her heart to run away,
    C
and no one's listening.
Am              F
  With Northern Massachusetts,
C                G
on his knees to stay, he's begging,
 F               G               Am
"Please, oh baby please, I can explain.
                 F-G
It won't happen again."


Verse 2:
             Am
He's putting out the fires
         F            C
and he's making her believe
     G      Am
he's really changed this time;
         F            G              Am
But it's obvious it's just another lie, lapse and relapse.
     F               C        G
And again she lays beside him thinking,
 F    C--G           Am     G      F
"I'll pretend in the middle of the night,
   C                     G
my eyes are closed, I'm sleeping,
Am               G
But I won't come back."


Chorus:
Am            F
  She'll fantasize about it
C            G                 F
every single day but she can't find it
       G             Am
in her heart to run away,
    C
And no one's listening.
Am              F
  With Northern Massachusetts,
C                G
On his knees to stay, he's begging,
 F               G               Am
"Please, oh baby please, I can explain.
                 Ad lib: Am-G-F-G
It won't happen again... It won't happen again"


Bridge:
Am
  How long can this last?
G#m
  The final straw was the hospital.
F
  At least she told herself that.
          G
But she just can't find the strength to end it.
 F C    G           Am     G      F
"I just left in the middle of the night,
C           G
Back to California,
    Am-G
And never look back..."


Chorus:
Am            F
  She'll fantasize about it
C            G                 F
every single day but she can't find it
       G             Am
in her heart to run away,
    C
And no one's listening.
Am              F
  With Northern Massachusetts,
C                G
On his knees to stay, he's begging,
 F               G               Am
"Please, oh baby please, I can explain.
   C
It won't happen again"


Chorus 2:
Am            F
  She'll fantasize about it
C            G                 F
every single day but she can't find it
       G             Am
in her heart to run away, (to run away...)
    C
And no one's listening.
Am              F
  With Northern Massachusetts,
C                G  (ON his knees to stay...) 
On his knees to stay, he's begging,
 F               G               Am
"Please, oh baby please, I can explain.
                 Am
It won't happen again"
