verse I:

        F               C                G                  


Sirens ring. shots rang out. A stranger cries  screams out loud.

          F                           C                 G          

I had my world    strapped against my back.   I held my hands 


never  knew  how  to act.



Well the same black line that was drawn on you 

     C                                G

was drawn on me  and now its drawn me in.

Walking home    on those streets

the river winds    move my feet

           F                         C

The subway steam like silhouettes in dreams

              F                        C       

Look out the window.   Down up on that street

                   G                     Bb

I am gone like at midnight   words that mend 


but I sit Here with six strings   

                   C                  G

layed against that wall   and all his things 


they all look so small

                 F                        C

I got my fingers crossed   on  a shooting star

          G              Bb

just like me just moved   -?-
