life that you wreck you're on the run
Am AmC C
You go to town to start anew
G G D D
those you left come after you

G G Em Em
Its what you think its how you feel
C C D D
though who can say if its all real
G G Em Em
The darndest thing kids grow up
Am Am D D
One day some strange adults show up
G G Em Em
The ones you left are right in town
Am Am D D
that's nice you say they'll be around
Am AmC C

G G D D
they'll forgive the one who left

G G D D
Things go so badly when you leave
F F C C
the skin you saved is growing slack and
G G D D
those you left don't want you back

G G Em Em
Your power's gone it was pro tem

The wife you left meant more to them
G G Em Em
Its not just that they side with her

you left and who knew where you were

The reason that they came to town
G G D D
was just to make that place their own
Am Am C C
You realised your greatest fear
G G D D
you are so close but hardly here
G G Em Em
It's what you think it's how you feel
Am Am D D
and what's worse is you know its real
