[Intro]
D A A5 B5 C B5 A5 G6  A 

[Verse 1]
A
I've seen it goin' 'round when you get bad news

Thinkin' that you found a darker shade of blue
G                                D
Lookin' for the light and it's a long way back
                                      C       A
You know without a fight you're gonna fade to black
A
Never was a man that ever felt this way

one who couldn't stand to live another day
G                           D
hard times seem to have the corner on you
                          C     A
but you can rise from the ashes too

[Chorus]
         D               C              G         A
When I'm on my knees and everything has gotten me beat
         D             C           G       A
and even I believe I'm never gonna find my feet
    D                                    A
Two ways you can go you can ask anybody around
         G                E                   A
one mans half way up is another mans half way down

[Verse 2]
A
Now you may decide it's a losin' game

even in your stride you're gonna call it lame
G                            D
Gettin' one leg up when it's said and done
                              C       A
is the hardest part no matter how you run
A
If you can walk away from a crash and burn

you'll appreciate every step you earn
G                             D
and if you feel the ground is gainin' on you
                               C         A
you're already bound to take a different view

[Chorus]
         D               C              G         A
When I'm on my knees and everything has gotten me beat
         D             C           G       A
and even I believe I'm never gonna find my feet
    D                                    A
Two ways you can go you can ask anybody around
         G                E                   A
one mans half way up is another mans half way down

[Bridge]
D                     A
One mans ceiling is another mans floor
D                        A
One mans wall could be another mans door
C                   D
One mans smile is another mans frown
              F                 E               A
and there are miles of half way up and half way down

[Outro] (x2)
A A5 B5 C B5 A5 G6 A
