Lyrics & Music

[Verse 1]
A                      E
So long ago, I don't remember when
       G#7                          C#m    B
That's when they say I lost my only friend
          A                       E
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
     G#7                           C#m   B
As I listened through the cemetery trees
 
[Interlude]
A E G#7 C#m B
 
[Verse 2]
           A                     E
I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
    G#7                      C#m B
The long broken arm of human law
       A                              E
Now it always seemed such a waste she always had a pretty face
  G#7                               C#m   B
I wondered how she hung around this place
 
[Pre-Chorus]
A A G#7 G#7
         Hey 
 
[Chorus]
A
   Come on try a little
E
   Nothing is forever
F#m7                   B
   Got to be something better than
 
   In the middle
A
   Me & Cinderella
E
   Put it all together
   F#m7             B   B7sus4
   We can drive it home
                A
   With one headlight
 
[Instrumental]
(A) E G#7 C#m B
 
[Verse 3]
              A
She said it's cold
                  E
It feels like Independence Day
      G#7                          C#m  B
And I can't break away from this parade
            A
But there's got to be an opening
E
Somewhere here in front of me
G#7                               C#m   B
Through this maze of ugliness and greed
               A
And I seen the sun up ahead
       E
At the county line bridge
       G#7                                 C#m  B
Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
      A
We'll run until she's out of breath
    E
She ran until there's nothin' left
    G#7                              C#m   B
She hit the end-it's just her window ledge
 
[Pre-Chorus]
A A G#7 G#7
         Hey hey
 
[Chorus]
A
   Come on try a little
E
   Nothing is forever
F#m7                   B
   Got to be something better than
 
   In the middle
A
   Me & Cinderella
E
   Put it all together
   F#m7             B   B7sus4
   We can drive it home
                A
   With one headlight
 
[Instrumental]
(A) E G#7 C#m B
A E G#7 C#m B
 
[Verse 4]
                   A
Well this place is old
                     E
It feels just like a beat up truck
           G#7                            C#m  B
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
                  A
Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes
     E
This place is always such a mess
    G#7                                C#m  B
Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
        A                              E
I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else
             G#7                             C#m  B
Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same
     A                            E
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams
  G#7                                C#m B
I think her death it must be killin' me
 
[Pre-Chorus]
A A G#7     G#7
    Hey hey hey
 
[Chorus]
A
   Come on try a little
E
   Nothing is forever
F#m7                   B
   Got to be something better than
 
   In the middle
A
   Me & Cinderella
E
   Put it all together
F#m7
   We can drive it home
B     (B7sus4)  A E F#m7 B
   With one headlight
 
[Outro]
A E F#m7 B
(repeat and fade)
