One Headlight

Not a huge Wallflowers fan, but I always liked this tune....worked it out the other day.

G``````````````````````D
So long ago, I don't remember when
```````F#7``````````````````````````Bm``````A
That's when they say I lost my only friend
``````````G```````````````````````D
Well they said she died easy of a broken heart disease
`````F#7```````````````````````````Bm```````A
As I listened through the cemetery trees
```````````G````````````````````D
I seen the sun comin' up at the funeral at dawn
````F#7``````````````````````Bm``````A
The long broken arm of human law
```````G
Now it always seemed such a waste
````D
She always had a pretty face
`````F#7```````````````````````````````Bm```````A
So I wondered how she hung around this place

G````````F#7

Chorus:
`````G
Hey, come on try a little
D
Nothing is forever
Em``````````````````````````A
There's got to be something better than in the middle
G
But me & Cinderella
D
We put it all together
Em````````````````A
We can drive it home
`````````````G
With one headlight


She said it's cold
It feels like Independence Day
And I can't break away from this parade
But there's got to be an opening
Somewhere here in front of me
Through this maze of ugliness and greed
And I seen the sun up ahead
At the county line bridge
Sayin' all there's good and nothingness is dead
We'll run until she's out of breath
She ran until there's nothin' left
She hit the end-it's just her window ledge


(chorus)

Well this place is old
It feels just like a beat up truck
I turn the engine, but the engine doesn't turn
Well it smells of cheap wine & cigarettes
This place is always such a mess
Sometimes I think I'd like to watch it burn
I'm so alone, and I feel just like somebody else
Man, I ain't changed, but I know I ain't the same
But somewhere here in between the city walls of dyin' dreams
I think of death-it must be killin' me


(chorus)
