Verse 1

F5
I've been alone, all the years
Cm5           F5
So many ways, to count the tears
F5
I never change, I never will.
Cm5             F5
I'm so afraid , the way I feel.

Chorus


  Db5   Bb5           C5           F5
	Days when the rain and the sun are gone.
                  Db5     Db5        C5          F5
	Black as night, making this hurt in my heart to long.
            Db5       Bb5            C5           F5
	So afraid, to live and I'll fall and I'll die

1st solo:
(I Don't know if Lindsey plays it this way exactly, but it plays
somewhat easily and it sounds perfect.)

Verse 2:

I've been alone, always down.
No one cares to stay around
I never change, I never will
I'm so afraid, the way I feel

Chorus

2nd Solo:
Repeat the first solo and then he goes off into a bigger solo in which
i haven't tabbed out yet.
