standard tuning

Riff 1 

     Bm  Asus2  D   G5  F#

The Asus2 might just be A in some parts, so just listen to the song or do it
however you want because either way sounds fine

Riff 2

     D    A   Bm    F#  G5    A   Bm      A

Play this through two times, but second time stop after the second A and and go
right into Riff 3, which picks up where Bm would have been.    

Riff 3

    G5    A     D

These chords are played on the off beats

Ok this is how this is played the first two times Riff 3 is played.
There is a pause where the space is.


   [Riff 1] 
Well there was a time when life caught you by surprise.
What you see going by is a shadow.
You've got to live in front of your eyes.
In a typical way we stray, checking back with the past.
In a typical day we'll stay to see what's gonna last.
   [Riff 1]
But I didn't mind at all.
   [Riff 1]
Well there was a place we'd chase through the woods in my juvenile days.
What a typical waste of space, what a wonderful place to stay.
But I could have cried but I just left my soul to fly.
And I could have chilled at will, but I didn't know how to die.
   [Riff 1]
But I didn't mind at all.

   [Riff 2]
No, I've been woken, and I have been broken.
But this time it's gonna change
For,I've been crazy, and I been lazy.
Has been stolen
But from,

   [Riff 3 (first ending)]

   [Riff 1]
Well there was a time when I could have flown out of the room.
Yet I didn't care just where I was going after noon.
Though I didn't know and I chose to live my life so fair.
And I could have died, but I chose to live here instead.
   [Riff 1]
But I didn't mind at all

   [Riff 2]
I've been woken, and I have been broken
But this time it's gonna change 
For, I've been lazy and I have been crazy
But this time it's not hazy at all
Cause I've been,
I've been chosen my heart has been stolen
But from,

   [Riff 3 (first ending)] 
   [Riff 3]
I say now way back when you and all your friends
Had some good times we should do this again we'd say 
Hey, hey, hey we should do this again, we'd say.
But in the mean meanwhile, I'll just walk the mile.
I won't look back won't forget your smile
Oh no, hey hey hey we should do this again, we'd say.
But I swear to you true.
   [Riff 3]
No. I won't give you back.
I swear I do.
God, I do.

Then is just three chords:  G5  A  D
I think this sounds fairly accurate...but if you notice something that's wrong
or anything that I missed please let me know!  Enjoy!
