   Dm                                               - C                     Bb

1.     Somewhere there's speaking,       it's already coming in,

Dm                                      C                 Bb

    oh, and it's rising in the back of your mind.

Dm                                   - C                             Bb

    You never could get it         unless you were fed it,

Dm                                                C              Bb

    and now you're here and you don't know why.

 

   Dm                                                C     Bb

2.     But under skinned knees and the skid marks,

Dm                                          C          Bb

    past the places where you used to learn,

Dm                              - C                    Bb

    you howl and listen,       listen and wait for the

Dm                                     C       Bb

    echoes of angels who won't return.

 

        Dm                     F             Dm                     C

He's everything you want, he's everything you need,

        Bb                 F                       C

he's everything inside of you that you wish you could be.

             Dm                F             Dm                  C

He says all the right things at exactly the right time,

      Bb                         F                         C              Bb

but he means nothing to you and you don't know why.

   Dm                                             - C                        Bb

3.      You're waiting for someone         to put you together,

Dm                                                C               Bb

    you're waiting for someone to push you away.

Dm                                     - C                      Bb

    There's always another       wound to discover,

Dm                                                          C           Bb

    there's always something more you wish he'd say.

 

+  CHORUS

 

   Dm                          Bb                            Dm

+      But you'll just sit tight and watch it unwind,

                                    Bb

    it's only what you’re asking for.

Dm                           Bb                          Dm

    And you'll be just fine with all of your time,

                                      C        Bb  

    it's only what you're waiting for.  - - -

3.     Out of the island         and into the highway,

Dm                                           C               Bb

    past the places where you might have turned.

Dm                                 - C                     Bb

    You never did notice,       but you still hide away,

Dm                                  C        Bb

    anger of angels who won't return.

 

+  CHORUS

 

             Dm                    F              Dm                    C

+  I am everything you want, I am everything you need,

             Bb                F                        C

    I am everything inside of you that you wish you could be.

             Dm               F             Dm                  C

    I say all the right things at exactly the right time,

         Bb                      F                   C                Bb    - Dm - Bb

    but I mean nothing to you and I don't know why.

                                Dm   Bb    Dm  - Bb              Dm      - Bb

    And I don't know why, why, why,        I don't know.
