|F . . . | . Dm G . | Am . . . |



Verse 1
G      Am
   Oh, life is bigger
Em
   It's bigger than you
            Am
And you are not me.
                        Em
The lengths that I will go to,
                     Am
The distance in your eyes,
Em                      Dm
   Oh no, I've said too much,
         G
I set it up.



Chorus
                 Am
That's me in the corner,
                 Em
That's me in the spotlight
            Am
Losing my religion.
          Em
Trying to keep up with you.
      Am
And I don't know if I can do it.
Em                      Dm
   Oh no, I've said too much,
                G
I haven't said enough.



Bridge
  G                        F
I thought that I heard you laughing,
  Dm             G         Am   Am     Am     Am  
I thought that I heard you sing.
Am F                 F   Dm G   Am
I  think I thought I saw    you try.



Verse 2
G        Am                      Em
   Every Whisper of every waking hour
                   Am
I'm choosing my confessions,
          Em
Trying to keep an eye of you
       Am
Like a hurt lost and blinded fool, fool
Em                      Dm
   Oh no, I've said too much,
         G
I set it up.



Verse 3
         Am
Consider this, consider this,
    Em
The hint of a century,
         Am
Consider this: the slip
     Em
That brought me to my knees failed.
Am
What if all these fantasies
     Em
Come    flailing around?
         Dm       G
Now I've said too much.



Bridge
  G                        F
I thought that I heard you laughing,
  Dm             G         Am   Am     Am     Am  
I thought that I heard you sing.
Am F                 F   Dm G   Am    G
I  think I thought I saw    you try.

Chorus
                 Am
That's me in the corner,
                 Em
That's me in the spotlight

That was just a dream,    just a dream, just a dream, dream.

  1. The 8-5 sequence doesn’t overlap the 7-5 sequence, it just submitted that way.

  2. The outro is:
    A/-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-
    E/—————-8-8-8-5-5-5-5-5

    Repeat the sequence 3 times then

    A/-7-5—5——
    E/—-8-5-8-5-8-

    Then Am chord. Sorry if thats confusing, but I tried.

  3. That lone birb

    If you want the pick pattern for the intro it’s

    5-7-5—–
    ——–5– Then F for 2 bars
    ———–
    ———–

    7-5-7-5—
    ———-5- Then Am for two bars
    ————-
    ————-

    7-5-7-5—-
    ———-5– Then F for two bars
    ————-
    ————-

    7-5-7-5—-
    ———-5- Then Am for two bars
    ————-
    ————-

    Then the verse starts

  4. sofimontanes

    +2 for higher tone

  5. how is the link supposed to work because it doesn’t sound right

  6. outro is going like (a string): 7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-3-0-5-3-0-3-0

  7. Susan Smith

    In the final bridge, shouldn’t it be “Try, fly, cry” instead of “Try, fly why”?

  8. Susan Smith

    Isn’t it “Try, cry, fly, try” in the final bridge?

  9. Love this song. Thanks for adding it.
