Verso 1: 
Em  C 
    I can't leave my house 
B  B7     Em 
      Or answer the phone 
C 
I'm going down again 
             B7 
But I'm not alone 

Verso 2:
   B 
Settling at last 
                Em 
Accounts of the soul 
 C 
This for the trash 
B  B7           Em 
  That paid in full 

Verso 3: 
 C 
As for the fall, it 
 C/B       Am 
Began long ago 
                B7 
Can't stop the rain 
                Em 
Can't stop the snow 

Verso 4: 
   G 
I sit in my chair 
               Am 
I look at the street 
      B7 
The neighbor returns 
    Em 
My smile of defeat 

Verso 5: 
   C                   C/B  Am 
I move with the leaves 
                   B7 
I shine with the chrome 
            Em 
I'm almost alive 
               Em   C 
I'm almost at home 

Verso 6:
B           B7 
No one to follow 
                Em 
And nothing to teach 
  C 
Except that the goal 
                         Em 
Falls short of the reach
