the way that you wanted me to.

 I pick up all the pieces

and I move my feet as fast as I can.
            GbmGbm chord      EE chord     
I'm always falling behind, 
      DbmDbm chord          BB chord
just float in the lines.

Every now and then
AAA chord 
  Fold the line along the seam
                  DbmDbm chord     DD chord

You're in the promised land

In someone else's dream

  If you want more and you'll get there
                DbmDbm chord      DD chord 
Throw a quarter in the well

The more I want, the less I've got
