Verse 1:
     Bb             F/A
Step one you say we need to talk
   Bb                F
He walks you say sit down itís just a talk
            F/A            Bb
He smiles politely back at you
            F/A
You stare politely right on through
Bb             F/A            Bb
  Some sort of window to your right
           F                 Bb
As he goes left and you stay right
            F/A               Bb
Between the lines of fear and blame
                 F/A     
And you begin to wonder why you came


Chorus:
Eb             F
Where did I go wrong
         Gm
I lost a friend
           Bb
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    Eb
And I would have stayed 
F               Gm
up with you all night
            Bb     F/A
Had I known how to save a life

Let him know that you know best

Cause after all you do know best
Bb                 F/A
  Try to slip past his defense
Gm               F
Without granting innocence
Bb           F/A             Gm
  Lay down a list of what is wrong
                  F
The things youíve told him all along
    Bb             F/A
And pray to God he hears you

And pray to God he hears you

As he begins to 
F/A
raise his voice
    Gm
You lower yours and 
F                  Bb
grant him one last choice
                F/A
Drive until you lose the 
        Gm
road Or break with the 
            F
ones youíve followed
Bb           F/A
  He will do one of two things
Gm               F 
He will admit to everything
