Lyrics

Intro

| G . . . | Em . . . | G . . . | Em . . . |

Verse

G Em G Em The time has come to reach a new realization 'tween me and you... Time to clear those rumors, sensations, and things that you done untrue C Am Well, I thought I heard you behind me C D With a knife straight for my back G Em It's quite clear that I'm back in the swing of living G Em Although I might not be on the right track D Oh, thought I might drown C Am But its hard to keep a good man... Downtown's where you'll find me, do some and got a hand Although I never listen girl I damn well understand And you think I'm so damn feeble I can't see through your lies You're just a crock of shit with a pretty smile And I refuse to compromise Oh, you're giving me... Such a heavy, heavy, heavy load

Interlude

| G . . . | Em . . . | G . . . | Em . . . | | C . . . | . . . . | D . . . | D . C Am | You may hold some vision of truth, if truth can be found in a lie Maybe some grain of inspiration for song that's deep inside Oh, tears runnin' down your face Just screamin' look me in the eye Well I'm looking straight at your twisted face And its enough to make me cry Oh, the path is there For those who want to... Pay the price of loving you, in more ways than one Wrapped around your finger but I think my time has come But I never can be too sure Cause I like to have a little fun Oh what fun it would be to blow my mind And fall into the sun D A mind... is a... C Am G (let ring) Precious... thing to taste

About

My name is David Potsiadlo, and I created Songnotes to share my collection of guitar tabs, chords, and lyrics for my favorite songs.

Since I started playing guitar over 10 years ago, I've often been frustrated by the preponderance of mediocre and incomplete song tabs littered across the internet. To combat this, I started keeping my own collection of notes for each song I learn -- always taking the extra time to make sure accuracy and completeness are never compromised. Years later, my collection grew to the point where I knew I had to share it online with fellow aspiring musicians.

In December 2012, I began designing & developing a website that became Songnotes. Here, I share my personal collection of hand-crafted music notation with all those online. I hope you enjoy.
