Intro: Eb,G#,Bb,Eb

Verse 1:
     Eb                       G#
I've lost all the time that I have in this world
     Eb                   G#         Bb
I've spent it unwisely, unwisely you see
      Eb                      G#
And I can't get it back and I can't move forward
    Eb             G#          Bb       Eb
I'm broken and I'm empty, it's over for me

   G#                   Eb
If I could undo all the wrongs that I've caused
G#                         Eb            Bb
Fall to my knees, pray for swiftness and just
    Eb                      G#           
For I'm just a fool, a fool driven to dust
        Eb          G#    Bb         Eb
And the world ain't gonna change for me

Verse 2: G# Eb So give me one more chance to prove these problems and frustrations G# Eb Bb Aren't just manifest in memories we're destined to repeat Eb G# A second chance to prove I know right from wrong Eb G# Bb Eb I swear I'll do things different but can't promise to be strong Chorus: Eb So come all you losers, you bastards and cheats, C Bb Vagrants, and barflies down on the street Eb C G# Follow this path to salvation, vindication awaits Eb G# Bb Eb We're marching on East Broadway Street tonight Intro Verse 3: Eb G# If you could look into this old face and try to see the young man Eb G# Bb I swear I once was pretty, not the monster you now see Eb G# But I squandered all my chances, lost my faith and took for granted Eb G# Bb Eb This life and precious one chance, the whirlwind I'll wreak Pre-Chorus Chorus x1
