D        A Esus4 E      G
 Come on, oh my star is fading
D     A     Esus4 E  G
 And I swerve out of control
D   A   Esus4 E    G
 If I, if I'd only waited
D           A               Esus4 E G
 I'd not be stuck here in this hole

 Come here, oh my star is fading
D     A     Esus4 E  G
 And I swerve out of control
D     A       Esus4 E      G
 And I swear, I waited and waited
D            A            Esus4 E G
 I've got to get out of this hole


Chorus 1:

   Eadd9              Gmaj7
 But time is on your side
               D      A
 It's on your side, now
                Eadd9             Gmaj7
 Not pushing you down, and all around
          D            A
 It's no cause for concern

Verse 3 (riff same as intro):

D        A Esus4 E      G
 Come on, oh my star is fading
D     A     Esus4    E  G
 And I see no chance of release
D     A       Esus4  E      G
 And I know I'm dead on the surface
D         A           Esus4 E G
 But I am screaming underneath


Chorus 2:

   Eadd9              Gmaj7
 And time is on your side
               D      A
 It's on your side, now
                Eadd9             Gmaj7
 Not pushing you down, and all around
             D            A
 No it's no cause for concern

Verse 4:

             Eadd9                 Gmaj7
 Stuck on the end of this ball and chain
                D         A
 And I'm on my way back down again
             Eadd9              Gmaj7
 Stood on the edge, tied to the noose
               D A
 Sick to the stomach


Verse 5:
                     Eadd9
 You can say what you mean
                       Gmaj7
 But it won't change a thing
                   D A
 I'm sick of the secrets
             Eadd9              Gmaj7
 Stood on the edge, tied to the noose
                D                   A
 And you came along and you cut me loose


Outro (riff same as bridge 3, except all G6 chords are Gmaj7 chords):

Eadd9  Gmaj7            D                   A
 ...    ...  You came along and you cut me loose
Eadd9  Gmaj7            D                   A
 ...    ...  You came along and you cut me loose

===============================================================================

Tips:

1. Bracketed notes are optional. Omit them to bring out the melody.
2. Play the lower strings (especially E and A) lightly or omit them altogether.
3. Listen for the accents in the intro (generally every second beat).
4. Pay close attention to the rhythm, especially the syncopation in bridge 3.
      Rhythm legend:
       H = Half note (minim)
       Q = Quarter note (crotchet)
       E = Eighth note (quaver)
       S = Sixteenth note (semiquaver)
       . = Dotted note (one and a half)
