1. Buried in the rubble thereís a boy in trouble,

†††††† G††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††††††D

††† reaching for a piece of the sky,

††††† Am†††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††Em

†† Clawing at the wreckage, sending out a message,

††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††D

††† dying to get back to the light.

††††† F††††† ††C †††††G††††††††††††† †††††††††D

††† Lost in time, long forgotten, hung forever

†††† F††† ††††C††††† ††††††D

†† on the line, still waiting behind.

 

C†††††††††††††††††††† - G - Em††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††† C

††† Still waiting,†††††††††††††† forever left to wonder why.

††††††††††††††††††† - G - G†††††††††††††††††† D†††††††††††††††††††† C

Still waiting,††††† †††††††in truth I know that really Iím

2. I had never reckoned ever coming second,

††††††† G††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††††††††D

††† stretching to get over the line.

†††† Am†††††††††††††††† †††††††††Em

††† But Iím all in pieces, sick as all my secrets,

††††† G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††††††††D

††† still know how they weigh on my mind.

††† Lost in time, long forgotten, hung forever

†††† F†††††† ††C†††††††††††† D

††† on the line, still waiting behind.
