Verse 1:
  C             Cmaj7                   
I know you say you're ready to change, 
    C7                           F
but I need to get it down on paper
 C             Cmaj7                        
Its in your face, you're ready to blame,
   C7                            F
the first guy in line to catch the train
     Fm7          C                    F                  Fm7
Ill save your seat, cause you dont stand for what you preach

Chorus:
C              Cmaj7                               C7
Singing with a broken string, tell me what you really mean
  F                                    C
Do you know what you want?
                     Cmaj7               C7             
While beatin up on yesterday, I was on my rollerblades,
          F
rollin on , movin on.

Verse 2:
C                 Cmaj7              
Its time to take the time to create,
        C7                                F
cause you're running late the doors are closing
C                Cmaj7                   
so tip your hat, and you might get back,
      C7                   F
whatever you need is up ahead,
   Fm7           C                F         Fm7
This train wont stop, for anybody to get off

Chorus:
C               Cmaj7                                     C7
Singing with a broken string, tell me what you really mean
     F                               C
Do you know what you want?
                    Cmaj7                  C7         
While beatin up on yesterday I was on my rollerblades
        F            C
rollin on, movin on
                   Cmaj7                                 C7
Youre singing with a broken string, tell me what you really mean
       F                               Fm7
Do you know what you want?
                C
Do you know?
F                   Fm7
Know

Bridge:
                       C
We've got to run with it
Cmaj7
It will get better
C                    Cmaj7
And at least, we're stuck together
C
Make your mind up, 
Cmaj7                   C          Cmaj7
Know what you need to say before you shout at me
      F       Fm7                    F              Fm7
So take your seat, cause standing only wears out feet

Ahhhhh

Chorus:
C                Cmaj7                            C7
Singing with a broken string, tell me what you really mean.
      F                    C
Do you know what you want?
                       Cmaj7                   C7       
While beatin up on yesterday, I was on my rollerblades, 
        F           C
rollin on, movin on

                    Cmaj7                           C7
You're singing with a broken string, tell me what you really mean
              F             C
Do you know what you want?
                Cmaj7                     C7             
While beatin up on yesterday,  I was on my rollerblades, 
    F          Fm7
rollin on, movin on

   C 
Do you know what you want?
