Time Take Me Away

[A] Time, [E] take me [D] away
[A] Drink [E] my life down the [D] drain
[A] Take me [E] back to [D] yesterday
[A] Take [E] away the pain [D] today

[A] Warriors in [E] chains and
[D] Women I used to believe
[A] Try to [E] tell me about an
[D] Insane history
[A] But I keep my [E] mind
[D] Hidden and far away
[A] It’s no longer of [E] any use to [D] me

[Refrain]
[E] And you who call yourselves [D] important
[E] Won’t you tell me what that [D] really means
[E] Cause I can’t see behind your [D] crying eyes
[E] At least that’s the way it seems to [D] me

I remember all those empty days and memories
I can hear you lying about them now
Why can’t you just accept the reality of it all
That you sold your future and your dreams

I got no use for fancy words or phrases
I’ve heard too many of your excuses
So don’t try and tell me about the meanings
Hide those feelings that you use

[Refrain]

Well I’m turning back the pages of my life
I’m finally hanging up my shadow
You keep trying to tell me what to do with my life
And I can’t even begin to cry for you

[Refrain]
