lyrics

(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
