40 Hours  Howie Day

[A]Lately after dark I?ve been [F#m]wandering through the park
with the [D]angry words you said wa[Bm7]ndering through my head
There's n[E]othing i can do to keep from f[D]eeling like i blew
the only chance i had to make it [A]better
The shadow on the wall as looking down from 10 feet tall
and i wonder what it sees as i stumble through the streets
To never feel alone it seemed written down in stone
but now it's all i can do to try and forget her
40 [E]hours and [D]counting i could shut my [A]eyes and sleep h[D]ere
Morning comes and goes and i'm tangle in the throes
in the stillness of my room and the bandage on my wound
My heart becomes a bird she set free with just a word
and now i'm wishing that i had never met her
40 hours and counting i could shut my eyes and sleep here
People rushing by out the corner of my eye
a kaleidoscope of bloom a mirror broke in two
A thousand little stars and in a million little wars
scattered out across the open desert
40 hours and counting i could shut my eyes and sleep here
A world is set ablaze by a never ending haze
and you're closer than a tear i see you ever clear
The rushes in the veins and there's nothing else to blame
but every minute, every hour, every second
40 hours and counting i shut my eyes and sleep here
shut my eyes and sleep to dream
Lately after dark
I've been wandering thru the park
with the angry words you said
wandering through my head
There's nothing i can do
to keep from feeling like i blew
the only chance i had to make it better
