Intro: E
[E]Shadows are falling [A]and I've been here all [E]day
It's too hot to sleep and [A]time is running [E]away
[B]Feel like my [B/A]soul has [G#m]turned [F#]into [E]steel
[C#m]I've still got the s[B]cars that the s[A]un didn't h[E]eal
[B]There's not even [B/A]room enough to [G#m]be an[F#]ywhere[E]
[C#m]It's not dark [B]yet, but i[A]t's getting [E]there
[E]Well my sense of humani[A]ty is going down the [E]drain
[E]Behind every beautiful thing, [A]there's been some kind of [E]pain
[B]She wrote me a [B/A]letter and she [G#m]wrote it [F#]so [E]kind
[C#m]She put down in [B]writin' what was [A]in her [E]mind
[B]I just don't see [B/A]why [G#m]I should ev[F#m]en c[E]are
[C#m]It's not dark y[B]et, but it's g[A]etting [E]there
[E]Well I been to London [A]and I been to gay [E]Paris
[E]I followed the river [A]and I got to the [E]sea
[B]I've been down to the [B/A]bottom of a [G#m]world full [F#]of lies
[C#m]I ain't lookin for [B]nothin' in [A]anyone's [E]eyes
[B]Sometimes my [B/A]burden is [G#m]more than [F#]I can [E]bear
[C#m]It's not dark y[B]et, but i[A]t's getting [E]there
[E]I was born here and I'll die here, [A]against my [E]will
[E]I know it looks like I'm movin' [A]but I'm standin' [E]still
[B]Every nerve in my [B/A]body is so n[G#m]aked a[F#]nd n[E]umb
[C#m]I can't even remember what it [B]was I came here to [A]get away from[E]
[B]Don't even [B/A]hear the [G#m]murmur of [F#]a pr[E]ayer
[C#m]It's not dark [B]yet, but it's [A]getting [E]there
