#1.
        G                           C                G    C
Well, I walked to the river just to ease my troubled mind.
      G                          C                 G
And I thought about leavin' this cardboard world behind.
   Bm        Em                C
My paperdoll princess has just blown out on the door..
A                         D
leavin' nothing more than me.

CHORUS:
    C       G        F       C                  G
And now the water is over my head and I keep on sinkin' like 
   F        C
my soul was lead.
        G           Bm                C        G    
And the world on my shoulders gettin' ready to crack..but I'm 
C      Bm             Am    D          G             C
in too deep and there ain't no turnin' back..no, no, no,
        G             C
turnin' back, no, no, no.

#2.
        G                        C                 G C
Ah, the breeze in the trees just Whisperin' Louise today.
            G                            C                  G
And you can take back your rib cause I'm really not made of clay.
   Bm        Em               C                            A
My ice-cream dreams have just melted in the night..I'm not standing 
                  D
here to fight the tide.

CHORUS:
    C       G        F       C                  G
And now the water is over my head and I keep on sinkin' like 
   F        C
my soul was lead.
        G           Bm                C        G    
And the world on my shoulders gettin' ready to crack..but I'm 
C      Bm             Am    D          G             C
in too deep and there ain't no turnin' back..no, no, no,
        G             C
turnin' back, no, no, no.

#3.
      G                           C                            G   C
Well, everybody's tellin' me that this is wrong and that ain't right.
    G                       C                     G
But that can't be because I saw the sunshine last night.
   Bm              Em                  C
My crystal ball is blazin' but there's nothing there to see..oh, there's
A                     D
nothing left of me to see.

CHORUS:
    C       G        F       C                  G
And now the water is over my head and I keep on sinkin' like 
   F        C
my soul was lead.
        G           Bm                C        G    
And the world on my shoulders gettin' ready to crack..but I'm 
C      Bm             Am    D          G             C
in too deep and there ain't no turnin' back..no, no, no,
        G             C
turnin' back, no, no, no.
