intro | C C/B Am7 D G :| play 2 times

C         C/B          Am7
I want to be where the talk of the town
   D                         G
is about last night when the sun went down
C       C/B     Am7
yeah... and the trees all dance
        D                      G        C     C/B
and the warm wind blows in the same old sound
Am7                         D
and the water below gives a gift to the sky
        G                      C         C/B
and the clouds give back every time they cry
         Am7              D
make the grass grow green beneath my toes
           G
and if the sun comes out
     C               C/B
I'll paint a picture all about
    Am7
the colors I've been dreaming of
    D
the hours just don't seem enough
   Am7
to put it all together
D                           G
maybe it's as strange as it seems
     C    G    C
Mmmm...

        Am7                        D
and the trouble I find is that the trouble finds me
       G                    C
it's a part of my mind it begins with a dream
      Am7                  D
and a feeling I get when I look and I see
          G                  C
that this world is a puzzle, find all of the pieces
    Am7                      D
and put it all together, and then I'll rearrange it
     Am7
I'll follow it forever
D                          G
always be as strange as it seems
     C
Mmmm...
c(min)
nobody ever told me not to try

interlude | Am7 D G C :| 2 times
(during the interlude he somewhere sings "not to try" and twice "always try", just listen)

Am7                         D
and the water below gives a gift to the sky
        G                      C         C/B
and the clouds give back every time they cry
         Am7              D
make the grass grow green beneath my toes
           G
and if the sun comes out
     C               C/B
I'll paint a picture all about
    Am7
the colors I've been dreaming of
    D
the hours just don't seem enough
   Am7
to put it all together
D                          G
always be as strange as it seems
     C    G    C
Mmmm...           i sing

Am7    D    G    C  (repeat 4 times)
Uhhh...
