verse 1: (use the plucking pattern above)
 GD
 How can I find us something
 EmD
 That two can take
 CG
 Without stumbling as we
 EmD
 Walk into out future's wake
verse 2:
 GD
 I'm like a broken record
 EmD
 That you can play
 CG
 Repeating as if it matters
 EmA
 Everything I wanna say

chorus:
 GD/F#Em
 I'll be alright
 C
 As long as it matters
D(hold)
As long as you're with me now

verse 3: (do chord of verse 1)
Forget that time
It's nothing we touch and see
All this time
Even as it crushes down on me

verse 4: (do chord of verse 2)
I'm looking around
There's nothing I could want
More than to tell you
There's no more than we've already got

(repeat chorus twice)

Solo: (with Guitar 1 on rhythm)
