[Verse]
D                        Ddim
Sitting in the back of a car
A5    A6 A5 A6 Cadd9
Music so loud  can't hear a thing
D        Cadd9        G/B     G
Thinking bout what to say   
                     D/F#     
And I can't find the lines.   (...)

D                     Ddim
You know I love you a lot
A5    A6 A5 A6    Cadd9
I just don't know should I not ?
D             Cadd9    G/B     G
Waiting for a brighter day
                   D/F#
And I can't find a way.

[Chorus]
Cadd9   G      D
I'll go on and on with you
Cadd9   G        D
Like to fall and lie with you
  Cadd9 G      D
I lo —  ve you too, 
Cadd9 G    D      
Whoa  whoa whoa.       (...)

D            Ddim
Baby I'm too afraid
A5    A6     A5 A6   Cadd9
I just don't know if it's okay
D         Cadd9       G/B   G
Trying to get away -- ay -- ay
     D/F#
From everything.

D                     Ddim
Why don't you take me home
A5    A6  A5 A6   Cadd9
It's gone too far inside this car
D                  Cadd9     G/B   G
I know I'll feel a whole lot more
           D/F#
When I get alone.

[Solo]
Play this three times but only the A the last time, just hang the D chord. Listen to the recording for 
timing. If you know a bit of hybrid picking, this should sound pretty smooth to use the pick to play 
the chord and then the lines with your fingers.
