Escalator

The intro is a strummed C while adding and dropping a few notes looking a little something like this

C                                                  G    
Don't mean a thing if you don't want it to
F                             C                           G
Another three day weekend spent inside
Bb                          F                                C                       G   F        G
to admit I have a problem means that I would have to lie again

C                                             G
Working my second or third marriage
F                        C                            G
then she finally kicked me out the door
Bb                   F                         C                        G    F   G     F   G
funny thing, I don't remember what she left me for again, again

(chorus)
G                                   C                          G                                
I'm in desperate need (desperate need) sometimes
G                           C                            G
Cuz sometimes I feel ( cuz I feel my life)
G                         Am  Em  F           C
is like an escalator going up and down
G
and finally get nowhere

and when the song is on the radio
I love to get all lost inside the music
the rhythm and the melody do something to me head again

don't mean a thing if you don't want it to
I've abandoned everyone who used to love me
if I lived up to their expectations I wonder what would be again, again

(chorus)

solo over verse
