The Way It Was

The Way It Was Guitar Chords & Lyrics
INTRO
 
E - C#m - G#m - A - B (x2)
 
 
VERSE 1
 
E                      C#m        G#m   A B
  I drove through the desert last night
E                C#m                G#m   A B
  I carried the weight of our last fight
 E                      C#m                 G#m
Elvis singing "Don't be Cruel" and I wonder if you feel it too
      A                B
It's like we're going under.
C#m                       F#m                     G#m
   Somewhere outside the lonely Esmeralda County line,
                    A                 B
The question of my heart came to my mind:
 
 
CHORUS
 
        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E       B             A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about those golden nights?
 
 
VERSE 2
 
E          C#m              G#m   A B
  Maybe a thief stole your heart
E             C#m           G#m
  Or maybe we just drifted apart.
     A       B
I remember driving 
E               C#m                   G#m
  In my daddy's car to the airfield, blanket on the hood, 
 A                 B
Backs against the windshield.
C#m                          F#m                           G#m
   Back then this thing was running on momentum, love and trust.
                   A            B
That paradise is buried in the dust.
 
 
CHORUS
 
        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E       B             A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about those golden nights?
(The way it was, it was)
 
 
BRIDGE
 
F#m                               C#m
   All of our plans are falling through.
F#m                                  B A
   Sometimes a dream, it don't come true.
 
 
INSTRUMENTAL
 
A - E - B (x2)
 
 
VERSE 3
 
    A     E
Darling. Darling
                    A
(If we go on can it be)
       A   E      B               A
Can it be the way it was when we met?
          E                     B
Did you forget all about them golden nights?
 
 
CHORUS
 
        A        E
If I go on with you by my side,
       A   E      B
Can it be the way it was?
             A                E
My heart is true, girl, it's just you
             B
I'm thinking of
       A              E
Can it be the way it was?

Breaking my back just to know your name

Seventeen tracks and I've had it with this game
Am
I'm breaking my back just to know your name
Am
But heaven ain't close in a place like this
Am                                 Dm           F
Anything goes but don't blink you might miss

You had a boyfriend

Who looked like a girlfriend
               E            Am
That I had in February of last year

It's not confidential

Ready? Let's roll onto something new
                                               Dm     F
Taking its toll and I'm leaving without you
Am
Ready? Let's roll onto something new
Am
But heaven ain't close in a place like this
Am                                             Dm     F

Pace yourself from me
        C    Dm      F

But I just don't know now

When all I wanna do is try

F                            Gm
   What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?
Am                      Gm
   Are your excuses any better than your senator's?
F                               Gm

   What are you waiting for, a kiss or an apology?
Am                                Gm
   You think by now you'd have an A in toxicology
F                                 Gm
   It’s hard to pack the car when all you do is shame us

   I saw my mother on the street last night
    F                         Gm           A#
All pretty and strong, singing “the road is long”

But she fell on her knees and cried

   And don't look back, just run for cover
 
 
BRIDGE
Am               A#                    Dm
   And there was nothing she wouldn't give
        A#                 Am                   A#
Just to trust him with her nightmares, with her dreams
          Dm             C
Now she's running, she's running

Just to trust him

VERSE 1
 
          C#5                    D5
We took a back road, we’re gonna look at the stars
          B5              C#5
We took a back road in my car
            F#5               D5
Down to the ocean, it’s only water and sand
           Ab5               C#5
And in the ocean, we’ll hold hands
                  C#5
But I don’t really like you
      D5                      B5                      C#5
Apologetically dressed in the best, but on a heartbeat glide
           F#5                D5
Without an answer, the thunder speaks from the sky
           Ab5              C#5     D
And on the cold, wet dirt I cry
           C#5   B5   A  Ab5 F#m  E
And on the cold, wet dirt I cry

Like the holiest dream
                F#5                D5
There’s someone calling, an angel whispers my name
        Ab5                    C#5   D
But the message relayed is the same
                            E
Wait till tomorrow you’ll be fine
                      E7
But it’s gone to the dogs in my mind
C#5      D5        Bm5      C#5     F#m          D
I Always hear them when the dead of night comes calling
  Ab5      C#5        D
To save me from this fright

Don’t you wanna swim with me?

  It started with a low light,  next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed.
                      C#m        B                       B              E
And then they took my blood type,  they left a strange impression in my head.
                    E      E                         E                   B
You know that I was hoping,  that I could leave this starcrossed world behind.
                     C#m  B                      B
But when they cut me open,  I guess I changed my mind.

And they’re zipping white light beams, disregarding bombs and satellites.

  That was the turning point,  that was one lonely night.

You know it's gonna haunt me,  so hesitation to this life I give.

You think you might cross over,  you're caught between the devil & the deep blue sea.

You better look it over,  before you make that leap.

And the public don't dwell on my transmission, 'cos it wasn't televised.

VERSE
 
G                     D
You lost faith in the human spirit
Fmaj7                  C
You walk around like a ghost
Cm                 G*
Your star-spangled heart
      Am             D
Took a train for the coast
 
G                       D
When you shine you're a hilltop mansion
Fmaj7                 C
So how'd you lose the light?
       Cm           G*
Was it blown by the wind,
       Am           D
In the still of the night?
C
We're up against the wall
 
 
CHORUS
 
G
Up against the wall
D - C                          D - Em
    There's something dying on the street
 
When they knock you down
G - Am                      G - Cadd9
    You're gonna get back on your feet

I always saw you as a kind of keeper

But your boys have grown soft
         Am              D - Dsus2
And your girls have gone wild
 
G                   D
From the blue ridge to the black hills
Fmaj7           C
To the redwood sky
    Cm         G
The season may pass
        Am           D
But the dream doesn't die

Why did you drop the ball?

Rescue, set me free

But I don't really mind that it's starting to get to me

Nobody ever pulls the seams round here

I've got this energy beneath my feet

Like something underground's gonna come up and carry me

I took a shuttle on a shockwave ride

Running through my veins an American masquerade

Red, white, and blue upon a birthday cake

My brother he was born on the Fourth of July and that's

  When I offer you survival

 You say it's hard enough to live

I awoke on the roadside

In the land of the free ride
            Em
And I can't pull it any longer
    Bm
The sun is beating down my neck
 
     Bm
So I ran with the devil
       G
Left a trail of excuses
       Em
Like a stone on the water
    Bm
The elements decide my fate
         G    D    A      D
Watch it go . . . "bling"

But I'm pushing on for that horizon
            Em
I'm pushing on
                 Bm
Now I've got the blowing wind against my face
 
 
So you sling rocks at the rip tide
     G
Am I wrong or am I right?
          Em
I hit the bottom with a "huh!" - Quite strange
         Bm
I get my glory in the desert rain

Watch it go . . . "bling"

You were standing with your girlfriends in the streets
Cadd9          Em7    Dsus4            Em7 Cadd9 Em7 Dsus4
Falling back on forever, I wonder what you came to be
G                                         Dsus4
I was new in town, the boy with the eager eyes
Cadd9           Em7    Dsus4              Em7 Cadd9 Em7 Dsus4
I never was a quitter, oblivious to schoolgirls' lies
 
Cadd9                           Em7
When I look back on those neon nights
The leather seats, the passage rite

I feel the heat, I see the light

Racing shadows in the moonlight

Through the desert on a hot night

G                                                Dsus4
It feels just like a dagger buried deep in your back
You run for cover but you can't escape the second attack
Cadd9                                         Em7
Your soul was innocent, she kissed him and she painted it black

The dust cloud has settled, and my eyes are clear
But sometimes in dreams of impact I still hear

Miss Atomic Bomb, I'm standing here
Cadd9
Sweat on my skin

Candy talks to strangers, thinks her life's in danger.
Am                            Bb    (C)
No-one gives a damn about her hair.
     F                                Dm
It's lonely down on Track Street, she used to go by Jackie.

The cops, they'll steal your dreams and they'll kill your prayers.

F                  Dm               Am                     Bb

This feeling won't go.

Crooked wheels keep turning - children, are you learning?
 Am                               Bb    (C)
Aclimatise but don't you lose the plot.
  F                         Dm
A history of blisters, your brothers and your sisters.
Am                           Bb   (C)
Somewhere in the pages we forgot.

This feeling won't go.
 
(Middle Eight)
                       Bb     C                           Dm
And the sky is full of dreams,  but you don't know how to fly.
G/B                     Gm     Bb                        C       C
