capo 3rd

Intro:  C F C F

Verse 1:

C C7Saturday morning a while before daylight Iím
F CLying here hoping for rain
Gm F CBy tomorrow I could be anywhere
C GmPassing streetcars alive without breathing
F CIím lost in the city again
Bb F C Without a purpose I canít believe anything
F AmAnd I know itís not my place
G C To be asking these questions
F Cbut I canít just chase
Bb Fevery world that I see because
C F This isnít real life
C G Em AmThis isnít happening
Dm AmSeems so believable
G CBut itís not the real thing
F C This isnít real life
G Em AmItís just some enormous lie
Dm F G C And I know Iíll be fine this isnít real life
Verse 2: (see above chords) Such a mystery Am I supposed to believe these illusions are real Out of focus, step out of character Into a world I can feel Maybe itís only a sense of propriety Keeping us grounded at all Or weíd run screaming Into the morning and out of control Pre-Chorus 2:
G F C GMaybe I can find some piece of a world I can handle
Em F G Or a common line, any one sign
E7 AAll a part of me
Chorus 2:
A D AThis isnít real life
E C#m9 This isnít happening

F#m E A But itís not the real thing

F#m Bm D E And weíll be fine if we can find a real life
