1. It starts with one thing, I don't know why,

          C

    it doesn't even matter how hard you try,

      Bb

    keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme,

              C

    to explain in due time.

 

              Dm

    All I know, time is a valuable thing,

      C

    watch it fly by as the pendulum swings,

      Bb

    watch it count down to the end of the day,

                     C

    the clock ticks life away.

 

                   Dm

    It's so unreal, didn't look out below,

      C

    watch the time go right out the window,

     Bb

    trying to hold on, but didn't even know,

      C

    wasted it all just to..

 

                         Dm

    Watch you go, I kept everything inside,

                           C

    and even though I tried, it all fell apart,

       Bb

    what it meant to me, will eventually

                       C

    be a memory of a time when…

I tried so hard and got so far, but in the end it doesn't even matter.

             Dm                     F                      C                                   Bb   

I had to fall to lose it all, but in the end it doesn't even matter.

 

    Dm

2. One thing I don't know why,

          C

    it doesn't even matter how hard you try,

      Bb

    keep that in mind, I designed this rhyme,

             C

    to remind myself how..

 

                   Dm

    I tried so hard, in spite of the way you were mocking me,

C

    acting like I was part of your property,

Bb

    remembering all the times you've fought with me,

C

    I'm surprised…

 

                 Dm

    It got so far, things aren't the way they were before,

C

    you wouldn't even recognize me anymore,

Bb

    not that you knew me back then,

             C

    but it all comes back to me.

 

              Dm

    In the end, you kept everything inside,

                       C

    and even though I tried, it all fell apart,

        Bb

    what it meant to me will eventually

                      C

    be a memory of a time when…
