[Intro]
D
...

[Verse]
  D   
Starting up

Your Chevrolet to packed crowds

Back in the heyday
 D 
Backfires, like the bravado

You did your best to downplay
 D                         G  
Your mistakes are sitting centre stage
               Em       A
Just like you made them....
              D
The American way
                G
All of your mistakes
                    Em
Are sitting centre stage
                     A
Just like you made them

[Refrain]
                G               A 
With only the seasons keeping time
             D                      G  
Who do you wanna be there by your side?
             Em             A 
Burning up beacon, casting light
           D                      Em
Over the empty seats night after night
          G
Solo, a dying star
          
Wants to dance over again
            A           B7
Perfected steps were so big back then

[Chorus]
 Em                     A
(Ain't nobody singing along)

Ain't nobody singing along
 Em                           A 
(Ain't no one remember that song)
No one remembers that song
Em      A 
Holding on to diminishing dawn

[Verse]
 D  
Laying down

All you do is clown around

In bed with your lady
 D    
Pair of die, roll 'em on a rent a night

Throw it all on layaway
 D                          G 
Your mistakes are sitting centre stage
           Em           A
Just like you made them...
              D
The American way
                G                        Em
All of your mistakes are sitting centre stage
                     A 
Just like you made them

[Refrain]
                G               A
With only the seasons keeping time
             D                      G
Who do you wanna be there by your side?
            Em               A 
Burning up beacon, casting light
          D                        Em   
Over the empty seats night after night
          G                          
Solo, a dying star wants to dance over again
            A            B7  
Perfected steps were so big back then

[Chorus]
 Em                     A
(Ain't nobody singing along)

Ain't nobody singing along
 Em                           A 
(Ain't no one remember that song)

No one remembers that song
Em      A 
Holding on to diminishing dawn

[Instrumental]
Em  A  Em  A  B7
.................
G  A  G  A  
...........

[Post-Chorus]
           G       A
Solo, a dying star...
          G                          
Solo, a dying star wants to dance over again
            A           B7 
Perfected steps were so big back then

[Chorus]
 Em                     A 
(Ain't nobody singing along)

No one remembers that song
  Em                          A  
(Ain't no one remember that song)
                   Em       A
Barely holding on (holding on) to diminishing dawn

[Bridge]
        D 
Rollercoaster, coming down
 Em                 
Wonderland is hitting the ground
       D   
Letter Z, pocket size
        Em                     
You're winning but you don't realise
       G            A  
You arrive at the fight
        Em     
Want a piece of me?
                         D 
Come get your slice of life
            
There she is, paradise
           Em                    
You could stay a while but it wouldn't suffice
           D  
Yeah you know, she's real nice
    m    
By now you've been there too many times
       G            A   
You arrive at the fight
        Em   
Want a piece of me?
      A 
In spite of yourself
           G            A  
Feel the pressure, but why?
      Em         
Wanna be something?
                         A  G  E/G#
Come get your slice of life..........

[Pre-Chorus]
G                                  A                               Em      A
..The more you want, the more you miss, the more you wish that you had it...
G                               A                             Em       A
..But when it all falls down around you, will you see how it happened?....

[Chorus]
       G            A  
You arrive at the fight

(The more you want, the more you miss, the more you wish that you had it)
Em      A        
..In spite of yourself
            G           A
Feel the pressure, but why?

(But when it all falls down around you, will you see how it happened?)
Em  A
......Come get your slice of life

[Chorus]
G                                 A                                Em    A
(The more you want, the more you miss, the more you wish that you had it)....
  
In spite of yourself

Feel the pressure, but why?
G                              A                              Em      A        
(But when it all falls down around you, will you see how it happened?)...

Barely holding on

[Chorus]
G                                 A                               Em      A
(The more you want, the more you miss, the more you wish that you had it)...

In spite of yourself

Feel the pressure, but why?
G                              A                             Em        A  
(But when it all falls down around you, will you see how it happened?)...
G                                 A                               Em
(The more you want, the more you miss, the more you wish that you had it)
