                This is a rough draft for the tab. There wasn't one out there so I figured I would get 
the ball rolling. If others want to use this and build off of it, you are more than 
welcome. Have fun.

Lyrics

Verse 1
When the slow parade went past
When it felt so good you knew it couldn't last
And all too soon the end was gonna come without a warning
And you'd have to just go home

Verse 2
And the way it all went by
And somebody said "come on its getting late"
And you thought the world might end if you just looked the other way
And now you wish that you had stayed

Bridge
And there's so much more that you could see if you just stick around
And all the street light secrets whispering for you to come back out

Chorus
Oh no
There's so much more that you need to work out
Oh no
You don't want that parade to leave you now

Verse 3
And the days are all the same
And the town so big and no one knows your name
And the people fade away
And all stars are just a flicker
And you're left there all alone

Bridge
When there's so much more that you could see if you just stick around
And all the street light secrets whispering for you to come back out

Chorus
Oh no
There's so much more that you need to work out
Oh no
You don't want that parade to leave you now

When the music's over
But the song stays in your head

Solo

Chorus
Oh no
There's so much more that you need to work out
Oh no
You don't want that parade to leave you now

Yeah
There's so much more that you need to work out
Yeah
You don't want that parade to leave you now
