1. MY OWN DEVICE 

Am                 Am7
How did it come so far?
                  Em
How did I lose it all?
Am             Am7
No-one else to blame
                          Em
I put myself through this hell
Am              Am7
It only takes a second,
               Em
to change your world
Am                 Am7
And the friends you lose,
           Em
will never return.


Ch.

C               C/B
I wish I had no memories,
       Am     G    Em    -F#(note)
of the things I've done.
G      D/F#    Em
Im not running away,
        Am  Em
im just overcome.
C              C/B
I wish I could see,
     Am   G   Em  -F#(n)
your laughing eyes.
G     D/F#    Em
But I lost it all,
           Am     Em
left to my own device.


Am                 Am7
Forgivness cant be bought,
               Em
by the richest man.
Am                 Am7
But deciept can be sold,
                Em
by the bearer's hand.
Am                     Am7
All the regrets in the world,
           Em
wont solve anything.
Am                       Am7
Depression's holding the hand,
                  Em
of a child called sin.


Ch.
I wish I had no memories,
of the things I've done.
Im not running away,
im just overcome.
I wish I could see,
your laughing eyes.
But I lost it all,
left to my own device.


Br.

C                         B7
I know we'll never be the same
      Em   Em7         C
but I want you to understand
       C/B        Am -4 beats
theres no looking back
               Dsus2
again I ask myself:



Am                 Am7
How did it come so far?
                  Em
How did I lose it all?
Am             Am7
No-one else to blame
                          Em
I put myself through this hell
Am              Am7
It only took a second,
               Em
to change my world
Am                 Am7
And the friendship I've lost,
           Em
will never return.




2.  SWEET MASSACHUSETTS


Intro(play twice)
G                                  D                                   G

Em             D            C
I watch the plane fly away, from the place it left me
Em      D                    C
with a coldness in my heart.
Em         D                     C
This old place dont look familar to me now,
    Em                  D              C
but I suppose it's good to be home.
Em           D                  C
All my ambitions and my dreams left on that jetplane,
Em           D                C/G
back to the place that I belong.

                    G           D             C      G
Sweet Massachusettes, I want to see it again
D          C           G
I want to be there again.
           D                                              C
but it's hard when you're banished three thousand
         G
miles away.

Dont get me wrong I love the country I come from
and my roots I'd never want to change.
But it was in the U-S of A that I finally found my way
a steady road I walked on.
All the bills I could not pay, so they sent me away,
and now all I think of is-

Sweet Massachusettes, I want to see her again
I want to feel it again.
but it's hard when you're banished three thousand
miles away.

{Bridge} Am C G
              Am D7 G

Now my girl waits for me, hoping someday for my return.
but it seems so far away.
I hate to put her through this pain, to hear her cry on the line
I cannot comfort her of hold her hand.
I cant stand this hell, I might as well be in jail,
if I'm not with her.
My soul companion I did meet, when I lived on Bostons streets
I've got to get back somehow....to

Sweet Massachusettes, I want to hold her again
I've got to hold her again.
I need to see her again, I want to love her again.  ect ect..
but it's hard when you're banished three thousand
miles away



3. I NEED YOUR LOVE

Capo on 1st

G                                                           
I dont need no money, I dont need no drugs.
I need you only, that's what I'm thinking of
Dont need no sunshine, dont need no coat
Need you to hold me, thats all I want.

Em                      D               G                      C             G

           Em           D       G               C          D
I've been down for so long but I will overcome.
                              G                C                   G                C
Cause I need your loooooooooovvvvvvvvvvveeeeee

G
I dont need no fakin', lies I dont want
If it's just love we're makin' then I need more
Just want the real thing, just wanna know
that you'll stand by me no matter what.

Em (ect...)
As you listen to my words, you almost whisper to me
Without breathing a word you say to me.
I need your love.
I need your love.

I know time it goes so fast, and people often change.
but I knew I have been blessed when I see your face.
Oh love........
Love............. 



4. SARAH 

Capo on 7th

Em                                                 G
She rubs her eyes as they greet the sunlight,
Em                          G
and of the time she's unaware.
Em                                           G
The calm is broken by screaming hinges,
Em                                  G
as she opens her bedroom door.

{small solo}

Em                                              G
She enters what once was a population,
Em                     G
just a year ago today.
Em                                G
Instinctivley she offers a greeting,
Em                                         G
but there's no-one there to say hello.

D                 C                             G
Her swelling eyes fall down to the floor.
D                               C                              Em  - G  -Em- G
Then she screams out loud "what am I living for?".

Em                                          G
She rustles through her evening ritual,
Em                           G
She sets the table for one.
Em                                     G 
Then she decides this is the right time,
Em                                            G
that shes not gonna be alone no-more.

D                    C9                           G
She falls to her knees, and prays to God.
D        C9                       G
Asking please forgive my faults.
D                       C                            G
For tonight is the last, she'll see of his world,
D                     C                         Em-G-Em-G  
She rises, then smiles for one last time.

Em                                             G
There is no sound as her mother enters,
Em                              G
There's no reply to her name.
Em                                       G
Sleeping pills and a bottle of whiskey,
Em                              G
has taken away Sarahs pain......

6. SMILE OF SADNESS

C                 D                         Em
I know that you've been doing well,
C                          D                          Em
and I know you've got you so called "friends",
C                    D                                     Em
but buisness suits and ties were'nt for me.
               C                       Am               B7
I always went for what I thought was real.
                       C                    D               Em
When we were young nothing seperated us,
            C                D                Em
to be together was just about enough.
                     C                           D             Em
But our lives changed, different paths we chose,
                     C                    Am             B7
now we meet again and our difference shows.
                           C                  D         Em
Once were all my reasons and all my dreams,
     C              D             Em
my beginning, my eternity,
                C                        D             Em
but when expected to hold up to the grade,
          C              Am      B7
I never knew how to be king.



(Chorus)

       C            D               Em                  C        D         Em
But dont confuse my position, cause it wont change today,
C                  D       Em                  C           Am            B7
feelings are on exhibition, years ago feel like yesterday,
             C            D            Em    
and I my youth I learned a lession,
                   C          D      Em
dont miss a chance for a kiss.
            C              D             Em                           C
Please dont confuse my expression, cause its a smile,
             Am          Em
but it a smile...of sadness


{same as before}

Saw the face of a child, 
stare at the stars in the sky at night.
She was filled with wonder, overflowed with awe
I wished that I could see what she saw.
Then I turn to you, with your tearful eyes
as you sing a songs saddest lines
"It's when confusion is understood, I once was love,
It once was good".

So dont confuse my position, cause it wont change today,
feelings are on exhibition, years ago feel like yesterday,
and I my youth I learned a lession,
dont miss a chance for a kiss.
Please dont confuse my expression, cause its a smile,
but it a smile...of sadness

1. WHAT?



D                     G            A5
I walked into a dead-end love,
D                     G       A5
realized that it's not enough
Em                     G.
Is it the same for you?
      Em                     A5
The trials you put me though!

  D                           G           A5
I watched the ocean meet the sky,
      D                        G    A5
and saw the blue turn into black,
              Em              G
and then counted the stars,
    Em      A5
its crazy i know.

[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/w/warm_gun/jammin_in_america_crd.html ]
Chorus.
D               G         A5         D
I---------- wanted to break free,
   Em  G      D                      C      G         D 
I needed to breathe, but this life is holding me
      C          G
this life is holding on
D                     G             A5       D 
What are these thoughts inside my head?
                     Em   G      D
they are steamrolling my soul
            C               G      D
and my friends are out of touch,
       C           G     D
they wouln'nt even know.

Br.
G          C                    G                      C                 G  
I took a trip across the river, and ended up more confused
G             C                       G                   C
I saw my life die, then re-enter a different time,
                A5-----C-----A5-----C-------A5----C
a different you.


D(same as before)

Maybe this and maybe that,
I hope this is where you're maybe at
I cant comprehend, 
why I cant understand.

Chorus.

3. PARALIZED 

Em                    A5
Cluthing reasons of reality,
Em                        A5
You told me often about insanity,
         C  G        C  G        A5
but it's alright, to my mind, to glide with me

I cry, conceed then lye on my back,
easy life and times are what I lack.
It's time for me, to relieve my inner dreams.-------Em G A5 Dsus2 x4 (double speed)


(faster)
Em                          A5
Come out, come in dont be a stranger,
Em                             A5
get dowm, get up dont fear the danger,
         C    G         C    G      A5
of a free mind, not many try to understand.


Inevitibly evidence is produced,
the strange cracks of time are reduced,
when the breath of life, takes a sigh inwardly.-----Em G A5 Dsus2 x4


My constant battle with identidy,
is like a wind in a vacuum breeze,
The red stop light is shining bright
Never green.

Go through the motions of habitual lives
rejecting notions of a better time.
Why cant you see, this is not for me?
Im paralized.

Cluthing reasons of reality,
you told me often about insanity.
but it's alright, to my mind, to side with me.




4. RIDE ON 

(INTRO)

Like a shotgun,  the night's split with indecision.
  Em    D C D     Em     D       C    D       
I am one,     who counts on this very nation.
   Em        D C D  Em    D      C      D   
So bring back,      bring back a higher meaning,

The war is with ourselves,
   G         D/F#          Em D C D
so ride on , right on -Yeah.

There's a thorn through,
American civilization.
With the fools who, cry for segregation.
If these ignorant and selfish fucking people,
were to leave us,
We'd see how much we didn'nt need them.

Oh--- we're all the same anyway
Dont matter how many games we play
The walls will all fall away,
So ride on, right on--yeah  

Oh---- we're all the same in the end,
dont matter how much money we spend.
The war is within ourselves,
so ride on , right on ,ride on......ect ect

Why get involved with the ones that hurt you?

You need to break free from ones that desert you.

Cause it's not the games you play
Em7    C         G

Your playing with my emotions
           Am   G5        D/F#
I'm like a ship without a sail
Am11    C       Am9   Am  
In this game of frail devotions
              Dsus2       Ab   Absus4  Am    Am11  Am   Am11
Sometimes you win but sometimes you'll fail.

Am          Am11  -ect. ect.
Where do we go?
Now we've been to the bottom.
I give you everything,
But all I feel is sorrow.


(Br.3)
Em      B7 -ect. ect.
Love is wearing thin and time aint on our side.
I can't find what's wrong,
If you always hide.
               Fmaj7   Ab  Am - G - D/F# --Fadd9- Gadd11
And now she is holding my soul.





6. LIFE ROLLERCOASTER 


12 Bar Blues on Verses

A
Twenty Years ago, remember I first spoke
D
I Layed down the law, told them just what I thought
E                                         D                           E  
My mother said "Boy, youll be a man, just keep your eyes open, do the best that you can"
     A
Well fifteen years ago I was still a child.
D
I thought the whole world lived in my town.
      E
I was happy playing football, It was my high,
      D                               E
and I learned who my friends were and who to fight.


    A     
Ch. Life Rollercoaster, it takes me up and down
    G
    Shakes my nerves, spins my head around
    F
    Sometimes high, sometimes on my knees
    D
    I dont know were I'm going
             E                        A
    I hardly know were Ive been. Yeah Yeah.



Oh. Ten years ago I was thirteen,
Got my first taste of lovin' if you know what I mean
She showed me hers, I showed her mine
I thought "what have I been doing all this time"
Well five years ago you know I was eighteen
The first girl I loved, I thought that it was a dream
Her first name was Kerry, her second was Anne
I thought it was forever, but she let me down

Ch. Life Rollercoaster, it takes me up and down
    Shakes my nerves, spins my head around
    Sometimes high, sometimes on my knees
    I dont know were I'm going
    I hardly know were Ive been. Yeah Yeah.

Well two years ago, things had to change
So I jumped on a plane and headed for the States
Gorgeous woman everywhere, the sun always shines
I knew that I was gonna have the time of my life
But now Its today and nothings really changed
I still drink too much, I cant pay the bills.
As for understanding woman, I still have no clue
You know I think I knew more when I was two.  Oh look out.

Ch. Life Rollercoaster, it takes me up and down
    Shakes my nerves, spins my head around
    Sometimes high, sometimes on my knees
    I dont know were I'm going
    I hardly know were Ive been. Yeah Yeah.

The landslide'll bring it down.
