[Verse I]
C                     Em
Wind it up and let it go
        D
When it gets to the other side, oh no
Em                                  G
Now wait a minute can't you see I'm lost
                                     Am
I try to get it but I may be too far gone
                                    C
I think about it baby then I'm wrong
                                       Em
I try to beat it but I'm no good on my own
                                          G
You say you don't see what you know about me

I got a penchant for the revelry
      Am
Now I been the best that I can be
    C                   D
But there ain't no good plans for me

[Chorus]
     C              Em       D
Just wind it up and let it go

And when it gets to the other side, oh no
C            Em            D
 We will not care where it lands
         C           Em          D
When I'm wide awake, let it slide

Everyone says I'm crazy but my, my
C             Em            D
 I'll get my sleep when I'm dead

[Verse II]
              Em
Right now I'm falling over but I'm keeping right
G                                        Am
Feeling better than I did this time last night
I stumble out into the city lights
C
 I got a voice in my head that I just can't bite
Em                                      G
People seem uptight, there's no hope in sight
                                              Am
But if I loosen my head a little then I'll be all right
                             C                 D
But when the morning comes I do it all again because I

[Chorus]
     C              Em       D
Just wind it up and let it go

And when it gets to the other side, oh no
C            Em            D
 We will not care where it lands
         C           Em          D
When I'm wide awake, let it slide

Everyone says I'm crazy but my, my
C             Em            D
 I'll get my sleep when I'm dead

[Bridge]
C                     Em             D
Pull together all the moments I found
                                         C
Man there's sure a lot of people in this town
                  Em               D
They all do their best to bring me down

But I can't be stopped now
C        Em                      D
 And the moment's just floating away

And I stutter
C              Em             D
 Maybe I'm too old to try and live this way

I should know better
C                    Em
 I slow down and I'm falling behind
D                                            C
Break off a piece of this life and I call it mine
        Em                  D
But you can't get back this time

[Chorus]
     C              Em       D
Just wind it up and let it go

And when it gets to the other side, oh no
C            Em            D
 We will not care where it lands
         C           Em          D
When I'm wide awake, let it slide

Everyone says I'm crazy but my, my
C             Em            D
 I'll get my sleep when I'm dead
