Verse 1

Am                                                            F
Staring at the bottom of your glass
                  G                                                           Em
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
                                          Am                               F                  G
But dreams come slow and they go so fast
         Am                                                          F
You see her when you close your eyes
                  G                                                     Em
Maybe one day you'll understand why
                                    Am                       F              G
Everything you touch surely dies


Verse 2

Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
Love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much and you dived too deep

Chorus x 3
