This is my version of a great song by a cool band, Goldfinger. I'm pretty 
sure about most of it, but let me know if you have any suggestions, 
changes, etc.

Intro: (played in the order given and with ska upstrokes)
   D    A    Em   Bm   Em   F#m  Em
E--5----5----7----2----7----9----7---*12-12-9-9-10-10-9-
B--7----5----8----3----8---10----8----------------------
G--7----6----9----4----9---11----9----------------------
D--7----7----9----4----9---11----9----------------------
A-------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------
(*Play this 1st time only. After this, play A in place of riff)
The second time this is played, I believe a second guitar comes in with 
the bass playing these barre chords, and it gets louder as the 
progression goes on:
E-------------------------------------
B-------------------------------------
G--7-------9---4---9---11---12--------
D--7---7---9---4---9---11---12---7----
A--5---7---7---2---7----9---10---7----
E------5-------------------------5----
   D   A   E   B   E   F#   G    A  

(Play this while 1st guitar keeps playing the ska progression)
D         A         E            B             E   
So here I am, doing everything I can.  Holding on to what I 
F#             G           A 
am, pretending I'm a superman.

(Verse:)(ska upstrokes)
D             A     Em               Bm
I'm trying to keep  the ground on my feet.  
   G                 D            A
It seems the world's falling down around me.
D                  A     Em               Bm
The nights are all long, I'm singing this song
   G                D                 A
to try and make the answers more than maybe.

(This part uses barre chords:)
        G  D   A            G    E  D       G   
And I'm so con-fused, about what to do, sometimes I wanna 
A                D
throw it all away.

D         A           Em            Bm            Em
So here I am, looking older all the time. Growing older 
        F#m           Em            A
all the time, feeling younger in my mind.

D             A     Em               Bm
I'm trying to sleep. I lost count of sheep.
   G              D            A       D  
My mind is racing faster every minute.  What could
     A    Em                   Bm     G  
I do more? Yeah I'm really not sure. I know I'm 
        D             A
running circles but I can't quit.
        G  D  A           G    E  D
And I'm so confused about what to do.  
    G               A
Sometimes I want to throw it all away.

(Bridge, using these chords:)
    Am  Em  Bm
E---5---7---7----
B---5---8---7----
G---5---9---7----
D---7---9---9----
A---7-------9----
E---5-------7----
Am                        Bm                 
Controlling everything in sight, I'm feeling weak I don't
     Em              		        Am             Bm 
feel right. You're telling me I have to change, telling me
          Em                         Am         Bm
to act my age. But if all that I can do is just sit and
           Em                                Am 
watch time go, then I'll have to say goodbye. Life's too 
Bm                Em               Hi F      Hi G
short to watch it fly, so watch it flyyyyyyyyyy.

Solo:
E----------5-------------------------------7-5--------
B------5-7---7-5-----5-------------------------7-7-5--
G----7-----------4-7---7-7-6-6-4---4-7-4-7-------7-6--
D--------------------------------5--------------------
A--5--------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------
This is played twice, and that's the song!  

Thanks, and I hope you like the tab!
