Intro: BbBb chord F7F7 chord GmGm chord EbEb chord

   BbBb chord                        F7F7 chord   
Hello, we haven't talked in quite some time
   GmGm chord                     EbEb chord           BbBb chord
I know I haven't been the best of sons
-BbBb chord-                               F7F7 chord   
Hello, I've been traveling in the desert of my mind
    GmGm chord                EbEb chord
And I haven't found a drop...
    BbBb chord        F7F7 chord   
Of life.
-F7F7 chord   -           GmGm chord        EbEb chord
I haven't found a drop...Of you

-EbEb chord-               BbBb chord   F7F7 chord   
I haven't found a drop...
                  GmGm chord  EbEb chord
I haven't found a drop...
    BbBb chord    F7F7 chord     GmGm chord  EbEb chord
Of water
-EbEb chord-     BbBb chord  F7F7 chord     GmGm chord  EbEb chord
Waaaaaater            Ooohh
BbBb chord   F7F7 chord      GmGm chord   EbEb chord
ahh...


BbBb chord
I tried desperately to run through the sand
      F7F7 chord   
As I hold the water in the palm of my hand
 GmGm chord
'Cause it's all that I have, and it's all that I need
         EbEb chord
And the waves of the water mean nothing to me
BbBb chord
But I tried my best and all that I can
         F7F7 chord   
To hold tightly onto what's left in my hand
GmGm chord
But no matter how, how tightly I will strain
    EbEb chord
The sand will slow me down, and the water will drain
BbBb chord
I'm just begin dramatic, in fact
                F7F7 chord   
I'm only at it again

As an addict with a pen

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

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

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

End of my ways

As a walking denial
    F7F7 chord   
My trial was filed

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

And I'm lying here just crying
                       BbBb chord     F7F7 chord       GmGm chord    EbEb 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...
