[Intro]
Em   D   Am   B7
.................
Em   D   Am   B7
.................

[Verse] 
Em                        G                       Am          C    D
...Trying to get to the bottom line, but there is no escaping.........
Em                   G                   Am             C    D
...Long days and a longer nights, and my mind is fading.........
Em                 D             Am                       B7
...How long can I live this life, feelin' like I'm on the edge, so take me
Em                    G                    Am             C      D
...Right back to the bottom line where my home is waiting..........

[Chorus]
Em                     D
...Ain't a lot of situations
             Am                            B7
I don't get along with the shit I should avoid
Em                    D
...I don't need a validation
                Am                          B7  
Looking for the one who can really hear me through the noise
Em                    D
...Been around just enough to know
Am                     B7
..That this life is a roller coaster
Em                      D
..I'm laying on the bedroom floor
Am                          B7
..And I'm wondering if I'm getting closer

[Interlude]
Em   D   Am   B7

Em                     G                  Am              C     D
...Wrong side of the border line and I'm sick of chasing..........
Em                     G               Am            C     D
...Getting drunk on a bus ride and I'm not engaging...........
Em                 D            Am                       B7
...How long can I live this life feeling like I'm on the edge, so take me
Em                    G                      Am            C     D
..Right back to the state of mind where I'm never wasted............

[Chorus]
Em                     D
...Ain't a lot of situations
             Am                            B7
I don't get along with the shit I should avoid
Em                    D
...I don't need a validation
                Am                          B7  
Looking for the one who can really hear me through the noise
Em                    D
...Been around just enough to know
Am                     B7
..That this life is a roller coaster
Em                      D
