A Matter of Time  The Killers

My first attempt at a Killers song chords
Standard Tuning:
No Capo
[Em]You're looking for a way out
I can feel it[Bm] [A] [Em]
[Em]Come on, show me where it hurts
Maybe I can heal it[Bm] [A] [Em]
[Em]Your feelings are your own
Now you keep 'em under lock and key[Bm] [A] [Em]
[Em]You got me drivin' through the streets
For an answer to the mystery[Bm] [A] [Em]
The [G]world's still [D]weak on Charleston [A]Avenue
Out[G]side that v[D]acant Starlight M[A]otel I see you
La[G]ughing with your g[D]irlfriends
Not a c[A]are in the world, not a b[D]urden [A]on your [Em]mind
[Em]It was a matter of time
[Em]There's a panic in this house
and it's bound to surface[Bm] [A] [Em]
[Em]Just walkin' through the front door
makes me nervous[Bm] [A] [Em]
[Em]It's creepin' up the floorboards,
got me wondering where I stand[Bm] [A] [Em]
[Em]I cannot put out the fire,
I got a book of matches in my hand[Bm] [A] [Em]
[G]When we first [D]met, headstrong and [A]filled with doubt
[G]Made just enough hustling [D]tables that summer to [A]take you out
I was [G]fallin' back on for[D]ever when you [A]told me about your h[D]eart
You laid it [A]on the l[Em]ine
[G]Laughing with your [D]girlfriends
Not a c[A]are in the world, not a [D]burden [A]on y[G]our mind
(You laid it on the line)
[G]It was just a m[A]atter, It was a [D]matte[A]r of [G]time
We [G]found ourselves a [A]place
We belo[D]ng in it for[G]ever
Ain't that [D]what it's all a[A]bout?
Make the [G]promise and keep [A]it
Come [D]hell or high wat[G]er
We'd f[D]igur[A]e it ou[G]t
It was the [G]night, it was the [A]moon
It was the [D]green grass in the [G]garden
The [G]victory and the [A]sin
[G]I know you're weary, [A]look at me
[D]Flailin' in the [G]corner
Here's the [G]towel
[A]Go on, throw it [G]in
[G]It was a [D]matter of [G]time
[G]Can't you see that it's [D]tearing me up in[A]side?
[G]Look what's laying at our f[A]eet
That's the [G]wreckage of broken d[A]reams
And [D]burned out[A]
[G]And it's here [A]on our s[G]treet
