John Frusciante - The Past Recedes

G D Am Em x3

G D Am

G  D  Am Em
And then the past recedes
G D Am Em
And I won't be involved
G D Am Em
The effort to be free
G D Am
Seems pointless from above
G D Am Em
Yor're looking down at' me
G D Am Em
I'd rather stay below
G D Am Em
Than have you staring up at me
G D                      Am            B7   B7+5
Theres nowhere I want to goooooooo

C        F#dim7              Em             D
Ay, this business of how long we try to stay alive
C      F#dim7                   Em
Why to be here you've first got to die
D
So I gave it a try
    C           G/B
And what do you know
            Am    F#dim7
Time was so long ago

G D Am Em
And thinks come back you see
G D Am Em
To where they don't belong
G D Am Em
And every drop of sea
G D                     Am     B7    B7+5
Is the whole ocean      oooooooohhh

  C           F#dim7
I lied to the greatest thieves
      Em           D
About anything and everything
C     F#dim7           Em
I'm a figure of forgotten speech
D
I'm our of reach
C               G/B
I can't play it safe
            Am          F#dim7  B7
But I might just in case
