[D]Waiting for the newest Rolling Stone[C]
[D]All the other girls are still at war[C]
[D]The best and worst of 1994[C]

Sometimes[Em] I think this world has no part[C]
For any[Em]one who every had a heart[C]
[D]This is yo[G]ur new thing now[C]
And it looks so good in print[G]

[D]People smile and bless all over you[C]

A[Em]ll the other kids are sad again[C]
A[Em] legend's not a legend 'til it ends[C]

And it makes the whole world spin[G]
It's at le[C]ast as old as sin[G]
But not quite[Am]
[D]This is yo[G]ur new thing now[C]
And now you're turning grinning[G]
But ma[C]ybe no one listening[G]
And you might lose it a[C]ll my darling, yes [G]you might[Am]
[D]This is yo[G]ur new thing now[C]
And it feels so good to doubt you[G]
[C]I could almost live without you[G]

fade out with D, C, D, C.... (repeating "not quite" several times)
