Tuning:    Standard

Notes:     Fantastic song, sounds great on solo guitar if you skip or just
           don't stress about the bridge. And, of course, skip the weird bits
           if you play the 7-minute version with the extra verse.

As I try to fill all of my empty days,
          [C]                 [F]
I stumble 'round on through my memory's maze.
         [Am]           [G]
Of all my past, only the sadness stays.

        I went moping down by the bridge.
[C]                                 [F]
    I rode a bike in the snow to the mini-mart.
                [Am]            [G]
I thought of the ways that I had broke my own heart.

[C]    [F]    [C]    [F]

Section A:
Well it's not for me to fill the blue sea with tears,

I wore the exact same clothes for five days.
The bailbondsman gave me a smile.
I was just thinking of only my sins all the while.

Section A:
As I try to fill all of my empty days,
