4th verse (special)

A chord diagramE minorEm                                A chord diagramA majorA
As the express train passes the local

         A chord diagramD MajorD                      A chord diagramE minorEm
It moves by just like a paper boat

      A chord diagramE minorEm                      A chord diagramA majorA
Although it weights a million pounds

  A chord diagramD MajorD                        A chord diagramE minorEm
I swear it almost seems to float

       A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramA majorA
And as we pass by eachother

    A chord diagramF# minorF#m               A chord diagramB minorBm
Our heads are full of bother

         A chord diagramE minorEm             A chord diagramA majorA
We can't look, we can't stop

         A chord diagramF# minorF#m             A chord diagramB minorBm
We can't think, we can't stop

             A chord diagramE minorEm           A chord diagramA majorA
'Cause we're stuck in our paths

             A chord diagramF# minorF#m           A chord diagramB minorBm
And it's the way it always lasts

            A chord diagramE minorEm                A chord diagramA majorA
And I need     something more

          A chord diagramD MajorD
From you ...
