Intro: GG chord D7D7 chord EmEm chord CC chord

   GG chord                        D7D7 chord   
Hello, we haven't talked in quite some time
   EmEm chord                     CC chord           GG chord
I know I haven't been the best of sons
-GG chord-                               D7D7 chord   
Hello, I've been traveling in the desert of my mind
    EmEm chord                CC chord
And I haven't found a drop...
    GG chord        D7D7 chord   
Of life.
-D7D7 chord   -           EmEm chord        CC chord
I haven't found a drop...Of you

-CC chord-               GG chord   D7D7 chord   
I haven't found a drop...
                  EmEm chord  CC chord
I haven't found a drop...
    GG chord    D7D7 chord     EmEm chord  CC chord
Of water
-CC chord-     GG chord  D7D7 chord     EmEm chord  CC chord
Waaaaaater            Ooohh
GG chord   D7D7 chord      EmEm chord   CC chord
ahh...


GG chord
I tried desperately to run through the sand
      D7D7 chord   
As I hold the water in the palm of my hand
 EmEm chord
'Cause it's all that I have, and it's all that I need
         CC chord
And the waves of the water mean nothing to me
GG chord
But I tried my best and all that I can
         D7D7 chord   
To hold tightly onto what's left in my hand
EmEm chord
But no matter how, how tightly I will strain
    CC chord
The sand will slow me down, and the water will drain
GG chord
I'm just begin dramatic, in fact
                D7D7 chord   
I'm only at it again

As an addict with a pen

Who's addicted to wind
       EmEm chord
As it blows me back and forth

Mindless, spineless, and pretend
    CC chord
Of course I'll be here again

See you tomorrow
                     GG chord
But it's the end of today

End of my ways

As a walking denial
    D7D7 chord   
My trial was filed

As a crazy suicidal headcase
         EmEm chord
But you specialize in dying
                             CC chord
You hear me screaming, "Father!"

And I'm lying here just crying
                       GG chord     D7D7 chord       EmEm chord    CC chord
So wash me with your water

--Chords are the same as before through the end--

Waaaaaaater

Hello, we haven't talked in quite some time
I know I haven't been the best of sons
Hello, I've been traveling in the desert of my mind
And I, I haven't found a drop...of life!
I haven't found a drop...of You!
I haven't found a drooooooop...
I haven't found a drooooooop...
Of water...
