Description

Beautiful song. Many have felt it is about unplanned pregnancy. My favorite line is about her doing something more productive (just sing about about it) than getting sucked into the alcoholism.

Lyrics
I wasn't happy with the other versions of the song on this site, so I worked it out
myself.  I think mine's a little more accurate, but I could be biased ;)  I'm pretty
sure it's in the original key without the capo, but I like to play it a little higher,
say capo 2 or 3.


A                                         D
2 AM and she calls me 'cause I'm still awake
                                    Dm
Can you help me unravel my latest mistake
                                            A
I don't love him and winter just wasn't my season.
 A							D
Yeah, we walk through the doors, so accusing their eyes
                                           Dm
Like they have any right at all to criticize
                                               A
Hypocrites, you're all here for the very same reason.

  	Bm
Cause you can't jump the track,
  	    D
We're like cars on a cable and
  A                        E
life's like an hourglass glued to the table.
  Bm                    D
No one can find the rewind button, girl,
  A                           E    E7
So cradle your head in your hands
     G       D        A           G       D        A
And breathe, just breathe. Whoa breathe just breathe


 A					D
May, he turned 21 on the base of Fort Bliss
						Dm
Just today he sat down to the flask in his fist
                                             A
Ain't been sober since maybe October of last year
	                               D
Here in town you can tell he's been down for while
                                              Dm
But my God it's so beautiful when the boy smiles
                                              A
Wanna hold him, but maybe I'll just sing about it

  	Bm
'Cause you can't jump the track
  	   D
We're like cars on a cable and
  A                        E
life's like an hourglass glued to the table,
  Bm                    D
No one can find the rewind button, boys
  A                            E    E7
So cradle your head in your hands.
     G       D        A           G       D        A
And breathe, just breathe,  ohhh breathe just breathe

  Bm                                    D
There's a light at each end of this tunnel
                         A                        E
you shout cause you're just as far in as you'll ever be out
  Bm
And these mistakes you've made
               D                         A              E	   E7
You'll just make them again if you'll only try turnin' around

 A                                        D
2 AM and I'm still awake writing this song
                                       Dm
If I get it all down on paper it's no longer inside of me
		    	    A
Threatnin' the life it belongs to.
 A                                          D
And I feel like I'm naked in front of the crowd
                 				Dm
'Cause these words are my diary screamin' out loud
                                                   A
And I know that you'll use them however you want to.


  Bm
Cause you can't jump the track
            D
We're like cars on a cable and
  A                        E
life's like an hourglass glued to the table,
  Bm                       D
No one can find the rewind button now
  A                      E    E7
Sing it if you understand...
     G       D        A           G       D        A
Yeah breathe, just breathe, ohhh breathe,  just breathe
     G       D        A           G       D        A
Yeah breathe, just breathe, ohhh breathe,  just breathe
