G G                    D D
Step one you say we need to talk
Em Em D D D D G G
He walks you say sit down it?s just a talk
D D Em Em
He smiles politely back at you
D D D D G G
You stare politely right on through
D D Em Em
Some sort of window to your right
D D D D G G
As he goes left and you stay right
D D Em Em
Between the lines of fear and blame
D D D D
And you begin to wonder why you came

C C D D Em Em
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
G G D D G G
Somewhere along in the bitterness
C C D D Em Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
G G D D G G
Had I known how to save a life
