Intro C-----------Em

Verse 1
   E                                    
This town is colder now, I think it's sick of us
   Abm
It's time to make our move, I'm shakin' off the rust
  E
I've got my heart set on anywhere but here
   Abm                                    Dbm   
I'm staring down myself, counting up the years
                              A
Steady hands, just take the wheel
                          Dbm
And every glance is killing me
                  A
Time to make one last appeal for the life I lead

Chorus

  E
Stop and stare
                         B
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
                     Dbm
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
                        A        A    B
But I've become what I can't be, oh

 E
Stop and stare
                                 B
You start to wonder why you're 'here' not 'there'
                           Dbm
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
                              A
But fair ain't what you really need
A                       E
Oh, can you see what I see?

Verse 2

- Same Pattern of chords as for Verse 1 -

They're tryin' to come back, all my senses push
Untie the weight bags, I never thought I could
Steady feet, don't fail me now
Gonna run till you can't walk
Something pulls my focus out
And I'm standing down


 E
Stop and stare
                         B
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
                  Dbm
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
                        A        A   -  B-Optional -
But I've become what I can't be, oh
 E
Stop and stare
                                 B
You start to wonder why you're 'here' not 'there'
                            Dbm
And you'd give anything to get what's fair
                         A
But fair ain't what you really need
B             E
Oh, you don't need

    Abm       Dbm        A
    Oh       Oh        Oooooo
                B
What you need, what you need, what you need

ENDING
E
Stop and stare
                        B
I think I'm moving but I go nowhere
                       Dbm
Yeah, I know that everyone gets scared
                        A        B
But I've become what I can't be, oh
                     E
Oh, do you see what I see?

  1. What would be a good strumming pattern for this song?

  2. +3 is easier and sounds great still

  3. LittleVoice

    -4 and capo on 4 is really easy.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
