Boy In The Well  R.E.M

[Em]        [F#]                             
[Em]Look at this, it's me, [F#]walking away.
[D]Look at you drowning, [C]on display.
[Em]Every time I've dropped by, [F#]I've tried to say
[D]The water is rising.
You [C]don't want to stay.

[Em]It's that sinking feeling. you [Bm]know what it's bringing [D]on.
[C]You might as well say it,
[Em]I see it, I feel it.
[Bm]This town is going [D]wrong.
[C]It's turning a[Am]way.

[G]You wanted me to [Bb]be someone that [C]I could never be
[G]My new friends are [Bb]offering [C]things I've never dreamed
It's [G]beautiful
[Bb]I'd like for them to [C]take me [Bb]on [Am]...
[Em]The track mall gang went off
[F#]On the Tennessee goth. [D]a lunar moth,
You [C]chrysalis and flail.
[Em]The water is rising. you [F#]try to rappel.
[D]A rousing cheer for the [C]boy in the well.
[Em]It's that sinking feeling. you [Bm]know what it's bringing [D]on.
[C]You might as well say it,
[Em]I see it, I feel it.
[Bm]This town is going [D]wrong.
It's [C]turning a[Am]way.
[G]You wanted me to [Bb]be someone that [C]I could never be
[G]My new friends are [Bb]offering [C]things I've never dreamed
It's [G]beautiful
I'd [Bb]like for them to [C]take me [Bb]on [Am]...
[Bb]        [Am]                             
[Em]Here is where I look back.
[F#]Here is where you fell.
[D]This is where I got up,
[C]Shaking off my tail
[Em]This is where your rope trick
[F#]Started to look stale.
A [D]greyhound pass for the [C]boy in the well.
[Em]It's that sinking feeling
[Bm]You know what it's bringing [D]on
[C]I might as well say it.
[Em]I see it, I feel it
[Bm]This town is going [D]wrong.
[C]It's turning a[Am]way.
[G]You wanted me to [Bb]be someone that [C]I could never be
[G]My new friends are [Bb]offering [C]things I've never dreamed
It's [G]beautiful
I'd [Bb]like for them to [C]take me [Bb]on [Am]
[G]You wanted me to [Bb]be someone that [C]I could never be
[G]My new friends are [Bb]offering [C]things I've never dreamed
It's [G]beautiful
I'd [Bb]like for them to [C]take me [Bb]on [Am]
[Bb]        [Am]                             
End on Em
