VERSE 1 Absus2 I feel like myself again I’ve been hanging out with my old friends Fmin7 They take me for who I am Nothin in this world feels better than Absus2 knowin that the best things never changed After all that time has rearranged Fmin7 I count my lucky stars for ones who fill my everyday with fun Absus2 Eb5 (hold) Bbsus4 Thanks to my old friends VERSE 2 Absus2 You know it’s been a short while since we met Though it feels like thirty years ago we left Fmin7 Headed down this open road Singing till we can’t no more Absus2 Making every stop our hearts desire Wide awake when we should be so tired Fmin7 Drawing up tomorrow’s plan Though it never matters where we land Absus2 Eb5 (hold) Bbsus4 as long as I’m with you CHORUS Eb Db Some say we’re throwing caution to the wind Eb Db Eb Well taking care is easier said than done Eb Db Bbmin7 when I’m with you there’s no confusion Bbsus2 Absus2 You feel like my old friend

VERSE 1 C7 Eb/Bb Ab G7 I promised my girl I’d try not to be so late When I arrived the party was well under way So I sat in the corner, I felt a little lost in space Across the room I saw you taking her hand Flash of anger stuck me as I tried to stand "You son of a bitch," the expression drawn on my face C7 | Eb/Bb | Ab | Bb G || PRE Ab D7 Cmin Bb G The crown wasted atop your head Ab D7 Cmin Bb G I'll make a point of it you never put it on again Ab Eb G7 Off with it instead, it’s bout time I get my sweet revenge CHORUS C7 Eb/Bb Ab6 G7 my sweet revenge C7 Eb/Bb Ab6 G7 my sweet revenge C7 Eb/Bb Ab6 G7 Nothing comforts me like sweet revenge C7 Eb/Bb Ab6 G7 VERSE 2 Your back stabbing's got me all worked up I’m not gonna lie down for this, man I've had enough It's time for good old-fashioned fisticuffs, C’mon ring the bell I’d better warn you I'm not gonna fight so fair A crowd has gathered for us, everyone’s prepared To see us in a cage match, only one of us walks outta this cell PRE The crown wasted atop your head I'll make a point of it you never put it on again Off with it instead, it’s bout time I get my sweet revenge CHORUS my sweet revenge my sweet revenge Nothing comforts me like sweet revenge I’ll be singing… ||: C7 | Eb/Bb | Ab6 | G7 :|| Repeat 4X BRIDGE Ab D7 Cmin Bb6 When all of this comes to an end Ab D7 Cmin Bb6 And you see yourself headed towards the bends Ab D7 Cmin Bb6 When you’re down and all alone Ab Eb G7 I"m gonna be there for you, just to knock you off your throne C7 | Eb/Bb | Ab6 | G7 | C7 | Eb/Bb | Ab6 | G7(SHORT) || DOUBLE CHORUS

Ghost 04:30
VERSE 1 She sings a song that stays in your ear not too long She burns the day so quickly you’d be amazed Should you cross paths, all that you share could never last Still she cries her name, and no one hears it all the same CHORUS Just like a ghost she will visit you in the night Just like a ghost she will disappear from your life forever VERSE 2 She paints a picture, of everyone dancing around her They just see scratches in the ceiling, but to her there’s some special meaning I wonder how long, she’ll go on singing her song It never ends, but for all it’s worth it never begins CHORUS Just like a ghost she will visit you in the night Just like a ghost she will disappear from your life forever BRIDGE Just like a melody she seemed to fit so perfectly Just like the song that comes and goes she needs to be free She needs to be free CHORUS Just like a ghost she will visit you in the night Just like a ghost she will disappear from your life forever

Every Time 03:51
Lyrics/Chords: 3/4 ||: F BbMa7 C :|| Snow keeps on falling from the sky down to the street Windshield wipers on my car, holding down the beat On my way to see you, driving to the country side The month of March is coming in, roaring like a lion 2/4 G/F | Gb/F | F | D7(b9) | G | C7(b9) | F | I've been racing, taking in the scene, I hit cruise control to rest my feet, think about the girl I'm off to meet G/F | Gb/F | F | D7(b9) | G | C7 (HOLD) || 4/4 Every time I get a little lost, I miss my exit cause I'm caught in a daydream of you. 4/4 ||: F BbMa7 C :|| If and when I fall from my horse I'll pick myself up and get back on course know you're waiting at the finish line I'll find a new way to you every time I'll find a brand new way back to you every time 3/4 ||: F BbMa7 C :|| Now spring is arriving melting all the tracks I left It's gonna be a trip now my best route is my best guess Take it with a grain of salt, cause it is the life I chose Moving right along now, one door opens to another's close 2/4 G/F | Gb/F | F | D7(b9) | G | C7(b9) | F | I've been racing, taking in the scene, I hit cruise control to rest my feet, think about the girl I'm off to meet G/F | Gb/F | F | D7(b9) | G | C7 (HOLD) || 4/4 Every time I get a little lost, I miss my exit cause I'm caught in a daydream of you. 4/4 ||: F BbMa7 C :|| If and when I fall from my horse I'll pick myself up and get back on course know you're waiting at the finish line I'll find a new way to you every time I'll find a brand new way back to you every time

Dear Terena 03:58
Dear Terena, Seems like ages since I’ve seen you So much that I wanna say Unlock every mystery Are you happy, are you sad? I know that you’d tell me if you had the voice How’s life through the looking glass? Reunited with the one you love at last But you left so many behind that loved you too Now what are we supposed to do? Shouldn’t we all be doing better? Don’t we all just get together and let it go She’s going home, it’ll be the first time She'll never be alone again for the rest of her life We'll miss her, there’s no in between Dear Terena Dear Terena, In a recurring dream I see ya now and then I look sideways, up, and down Finally I see your face there in the crowd I look back another time around Just my imagination acting up now But you left so many behind that loved you too Now what are we supposed to do? Shouldn’t we all be doing better? Don’t we all just get together and let it go She’s going home, it’ll be the first time She'll never be alone again for the rest of her life We'll miss her, there’s no in between

I thought I was your go to guy But you’re headed off in your own direction this time Was I ever part of your larger than life plans? Or did you just wake up this morning and realize I was not your man You only heard me as a side note I didn’t make the cut for the symphony you wrote I thought at least I’d be guaranteed a front row seat Now I’m lined up at the box office, and I’d be lucky with a nosebleed It’s so hard to turn back once you’ve gotten so far It’s so hard to have so little once you’ve had it all I can feel your heart beat from a hundred miles away Under your rhythmic spell I’ll fall I’ll fall again as fast as I can Don’t you worry about me, it’s not the first time my heart’s been so broken I’ll get over you one day, but probably not the day I planned I crossed my fingers, I made my wish And I tossed all I could afford into the ocean I bet it all on you I expected all or nothing at all, and I got what I was due It’s so hard to turn back once you’ve gotten so far It’s so hard to have so little once you’ve had it all I can feel your heart beat from a hundred miles away Under your rhythmic spell I’ll fall I’ll fall again as fast as I can Don’t you worry about me, it’s not the first time my heart’s been so broken I’ll get over you one day, but probably not the day I planned I’ll get over you as fast as I can I’ll get over you as fast as I can

(capo fret 4) VERSE G Emin Bmin D You write the words to a sad song. Leave the rest to me; I’ll give you music to sing to Strum along until your heart races. Fall asleep and wake up in the strangest of places PRE CHORUS G D D7 When ya gonna learn life’s not worth speeding through? CHORUS C Amin F#dim Emin A7 D D7 Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on C Amin F#dim Emin A7 D D7 Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on C Emin G D Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on VERSE 2 And all along I was in your blind spot You never saw me there I guess we never could have been prepared For flying through the rails we were so shell shocked But we were bound to crash; there was nothing we could do about that PRE CHORUS G D D7 When ya gonna learn life’s not worth speeding through? CHORUS C Amin F#dim Emin A7 D D7 Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on C Amin F#dim Emin A7 D D7 Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on C Emin G D Put the brakes on, Put the brakes on
