[Intro]
G       D       G       C
D       D       D       D
 
[Verse 1]
G
Here's the foundation
Em
A broken stone wall
C
The leftover pieces of something
     G              D
That one time stood tall
 
G
Here is your picture
Em
Lost from its frame
C
All but forgotten
G          D
All that remains
 
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Am                   G/B
I have no illusions about our past
C                             D
I have no solutions that will last
 
[Chorus 1]
G
We got nowhere, just trying to cover ground
Em
We built high hopes just to watch them tumble down
C
All of this time that I spend with you
G                        D                        G
I'm getting tired of the building and wrecking we do
 
[Verse 2]
G
We tried to find meaning
Em
When things went all wrong
C
But sometimes that silver lining
G              D
Just takes too long
 
[Pre-Chorus 1]
Am                              G/B
I guess we never understood the difference between
C                                          D
Getting what you want and getting what you need
 
[Chorus 2]
G
We got nowhere, just trying to cover ground
Em
We built high hopes just to watch them tumble down
C
All of this time that I spend with you
G                        D                        G
I'm getting tired of the building and wrecking we do
 
[Instrumental]
Em      D       C       C
Em      D       C       C
Em      D       C       C
D       D       D       D
G       G       G       G
 
[Verse 3]
G
No one is leaving
Em
Nobody's hurt
C
You deal with your conscience
G              D
I deal with my face in the dirt
 
[Pre-Chorus 3]
Am                                    G/B
I’ve been crawling through the desert praying for the rain
C                                               D
Now I’m trying to make excuses for the things I can't explain
 
[Chorus 3]
G
We got nowhere, just trying to cover ground
Em
We built high hopes just to watch them tumble down
C
All of this time that I spend with you
G                        D                        Em     D     C
I'm getting tired of the building and wrecking we do
G                        D                        G
I'm getting tired of the building and wrecking we do
