Sometimes I slip away at night, and I sing those lonesome blues,
Dsus4 Gsus4 A7sus4 A7
The one I love sleeps in our bedroom, while I’m out here playing for the moon.
Gsus4 A7 Dsus4
They all say I should be happy, and that I have everything.
Dsus4 A7 Dsus
But I still feel so empty, like my heart is missing something.

What makes us old is replacing hope with regret,
D G A D
We’re given choices in our lifetimes, and what we take is what we get.
D G A Bm
How do we know if what we do is wrong or right,
G A D
Well, how do we know, if we’re living the right life.
When I wake up in the morning, I take a long look in the mirror,
There’s a man staring back at me, but who he is is just unclear.
I hear some say I’m wasting talent, and I should be down in Nashville,
Others say my life is here and now, but I feel like time is standing still.
