  I'm sorry, mother... I'm sorry, I let you down

  Well, these days I'm fine - No these days I tend to lie
  E                        B
  I'll take the West train, just by the side of Amsterdam
  Abm                   A
  Just by my left brain, just by the side of the Tin man

 Your time will come if you wait for it, if you wait for it

  It's hard, believe me... I've tried

  But I keep coming up short

       E                      B
 I'm sorry, lover... You're sorry; I bring you down

  Well, these days I try and these days I tend to lie
  E                                 B
  Kinda thought I was a mystery and then I thought I wasn't meant to be
  Abm                              A
  You said yourself fantastically, "Congratulations you were all alone"

  Your time will come if you wait for it, if you wait for it
         E       B                A
  It's hard, believe me... I've tried

Bridge:
          B                      -Dbm-
 But the rain won't fall for the both of us
      A
  The sun won't shine on the both of us
  B
  Believe me when I say, that I wouldn't have it any other way

Interlude -x2-: E B Abm

Chorus:
       E           B           A
  Your time will come if you wait for it, if you wait for it
       E         B                A
  It's hard, believe me... I've tried
                              E               B                    A
  But I won't wait much longer 'cause these walls they're crashing down
                              E               B                    A
  And I won't wait much longer 'cause these walls they're crashing down
                         E
  And I keep coming up short

    -4 was the easiest for me

    If you want an easier way to play it do +3! It’s really easy to sing to as well as play, the dm in the bridge sounds a bit off though so if anyone knows what would sound better that’d be very helpful :D
