Verse:
Aadd9                                 G 
2am and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake
                                    D   
Can you help me unravel my latest mistake?
                                         Aadd9
I don't love him, Winter just wasn't my season
Aadd9                                            G 
Yeah, we walk through the door so accusing their eyes
                                       D
Like they have any right at all to criticize
                                             Aadd9
Hypocrites you're all here for the very same reason

Chorus:
Bm
'Cause you can't jump the track
            D
We're like cars on a cable and
A                        E
Life's like an hourglass glued to the table
Bm                    D
No one can find the rewind button, girl
A                           E
So cradle your head in your hands
   G    D       Aadd9          G    D       Aadd9
And breathe, just breathe, whoa breathe, just breathe

Verse:
Aadd9                           G
May he turned 21 on the base of Fort Bliss
                                           D
Just today he sat down to the flask in his fist
                                        Aadd9
Ain't been sober since maybe October of last year
Aadd9                                          G
Here in town you can tell h 's been down for a while
                                          D
But my god it's so beautiful when the boy smiles
                                     Aadd9
Wanna hold him maybe I'll just sing about it

Chorus:
Bm
Cause you can't jump the track
           D
We're like cars on a cable and
A                        E
Life's like an hourglass glued to the table
Bm                    D
No one can find the rewind button, boys
A                           E
So cradle your head in your hands
    G   D       Aadd9           G   D        Aadd9
And breathe, just breathe, whoa breathe, just breathe

Bridge:
Bm                            D
There's a light at each end of this tunnel you shout
             A                       E
Cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
      Bm                                D
These mistakes you've made, you'll just make them again
   A                       E
If you'll only try turnin' around

Verse:
Aadd9                        G
2am and I'm still awake writing a song
                                      D
If I get it all down on paper it's no longer
                                     Aadd9
Inside of me, threatnin' the life it belongs to
Aadd9                                     G
And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
                                             D
Cause these words are my diary screamin' out loud
                                             Aadd9
And I know that you'll use them, however you want to

Chorus:
Bm
Cause you can't jump the track
           D   
We're like cars on a cable and
A                         E
Life's like an hourglass glued to the table
Bm                    D 
No one can find the rewind button, now
A                  E
Sing it if you understand
    G   D         Aadd9         G    D        Aadd9
And breathe, just breathe, whoa breathe, just breathe

    For E, Em works well. For Aadd9, just an A works. For Bm, well, you’re gonna have to learn that chord eventually, so deal with it.

    • When I play, rather than using E or Em I use E7. It sounds a bit better to me, and its easier than just the regular E.

  2. -2 simplifies the chords a little more

  3. -4 is easier for singing to if you have a lower pitched voice and is just as easy to play!
