A Little Too Far Savatage
Do y[C]ou remember? Look at me.
At [Em]all the things we'd said we'd be.
We'd [Am]beat the house we'd push the odds.
We'd t[F]ake it all we had the cards.
With ye[C]ars to burn and years to trash.
[Em]Livin' life based on flash.
But s[Am]omehow reaching for the stars.
F D E C (these last 3 are notes not chords)
I think we went a bit too far.
G[C]ot to get back. Got to [Dm]get back. Got to get b[Em]ack.
I ne[F]ver meant to t[G]ake it this f[C]ar.
G[C]ot to get back. Got to [Dm]get back. Got to get b[Em]ack. [F] [G]
When everything you touch turns gold.
Can weigh you down. Can make you old.
When metal doesn't ring the same.
Reaction from inside your brain.
And all the years we offered up.
To gods who couldn't get enough.
Though we still stay up all night.
The mornings aren't as quite as bright.
And all those things we thought we learned.
As we watch our bridges burn.
While standing in the after glow.
I guess we gave them quite a show.
But who's to say what it's about.
When John Wayne caught the last train out.
And Spock and Kirk have had enough.
And no one's left to beam me up.
