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

Chorus
  C             D                Em
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend
            G             D/F#
Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C                   D                Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G     D/F#     C
Had I known how to save a life

Verse 2
G                    D/F#   
Let him know that you know best
    Em             D   D/F#
Cause after all you do know best
             D/F#           Em
Try to slip past his defense
             D       D/F#     
Without granting innocence
               D/F#         Em
Lay down a list of what is wrong
             D       D/F#      G
The things youíve told him all along
              D/F#        Em
And pray to God he hears you
              D          D/F#
And pray to God he hears you

Chorus
C             D                Em
Where did I go wrong, I lost a friend

Somewhere along in the bitterness
    C                   D                Em
And I would have stayed up with you all night
             G     D/F#     C
Had I known how to save a life

Verse 2
G                    D/F#   
As he begins to raise his voice
    Em                 D        D/F#    G
You lower yours and grant him one last choice
   D/F#           Em
Drive until you lose the road
             D       D/F#      G
Or break with the ones youíve followed
            D/F#        Em
He will do one of two things 
         D       D/F#  G
He will admit to everything
              D/F#             Em
Or heíll say heís just not the same
                   D     D/F#       
And youíll begin to wonder why you came
