Verse 1:
       A        C#/Ab
I was drifting, crying
      D/F#            E
I was looking for an island
       A       C#/Ab
I was slipping under
              D/F#                   E
I'll pull the devil down with me one way or another


Bridge:
F#m            Bm    F#m            E               
I'm out of my mind; think you can wait?
F#m            Bm    F#m            E
I'm way off the line; think you can wait?


Verse 2:
            A                  C#/Ab
We've been running a sleepless run
       D/F#               E
Been away from the baby way too long
            A                   C#/Ab
We've been holding a good night gone
            D/F#              E
We've been losing our exits one by one


Bridge:
F#m            Bm    F#m            E               
I'm out of my mind; think you can wait?
F#m            Bm    F#m            E
I'm way off the line; think you can wait?


Pre-Chorus
    A         C#/Ab
Did I?
D/F#            E
Think you can wait?
    A         C#/Ab
Did I?
D/F#            E
Think you can wait?


Verse 3:
         A           C#/Ab
What I'm thinking is simple
          D/F#                  E
I'll sell apples and ice water at the temple
  A                  C#/Ab
I won't make         trouble
     D/F#                              E
I'll pull the devil down with me one way or another

Been away from the baby way too long
           F#m                   Bm
We've been holding a good night gone
           F#m                 E (Hold until instrumental)
We've been losing our exits one by one

I'll try.

but I couldn't be better.
     D/F#           E

but I couldn't be better.
     D/F#           E
I'll try,
                  A          C#/Ab
but I couldn't be better.
