Intro: D-G-Bm-G

D                         G
Morning falls like rain into the city life
there goes another night
D                     G
Losing my breath in waves,, knowing that  
  Bm                             G
ever crash is bleading the hourglass
                  D   G               Bm G
And taking the strife from all our lives.

D                 G                       Bm
Everyone keeps talking, they promise you everything

But they don't mean everything

We may loose our focus, there's just too many words
              G                         Bm             A                          
We're never meant to learn, and we don't feel so alive

  D               Bm           G-A
So goodbye, these days are gone
  D                 G         A
And we can't keep holdin on
          Em                 G
When all we need is some relief
Through these hard times

  D                   G
Move your hands in circles
                  Bm                   G   
Keeping me hypnotized, the power behind your eyes..
  D                 G                     Bm
Move around your bedroom cursing the naked sky..
                G                     Bm             A        
You should be here tonight but you stay alone and cry.

Chorus 2:

  D                           G
say goodbye, these days are gone
  D                         G
And we can't keep holding on
        Em                   G
when all we need is some relief
Through these hard times
(whoa) there's something missing
  G           F#m                 Em
(oh woah) You'll never feel it but you
  F#m                                 A
(oh woah) You're gonna feel it when it's gone
When it's gone

D                               G
Say goodybye, these days are gone
  D                           G
And we can't keep holding on
When all weneed s some relief
Through these hard times  
Em             G
(hey) these Hard times
(oh no now) Hard times

    D                           G
Say goodbye, theses days are gone
D                             Em
Say goodbye these days are gone
  D             Em-G-D
These days are gone..
