Csus2      G             F   Am7/e
Ray, as of today I can't say things will
C    G/b     Am7
Ever be the same 
And that could be a shame 
       Csus2             G           F    Am7/e
'Cause though I think I know another lonely 
C      G/b    Am7
Exile when I see one 
And you appear to be one 
C   G/b  Am7  F
Still 

G              F           Em       Em7      A7
I'm playing it down 'cause I could really be found 
   C                G    C  F
If you've got it to spare 
G              F        Em      Em7   A7
I'm playing it cool but it's terribly cruel 
          C          G      Csus2
'Cause I ought to be there 

    Csus2           G             F    Am7/e
And Ray, what can I say you don't know me and 
C          G/b    Am7
It's just wishful thinking 
To keep myself from sinking 
Csus2        G            F    Am7/e
Hence, no evidence to support any 
C         G/b    Am7
Theory I have handy 
That you could understand me 
  C   G/B Am7 F
And so 

G              F           Em       Em7      A7
I'm playing it down 'cause I could really be found 
   C                G    C  F
If you've got it to spare 
G              F        Em      Em7   A7
I'm playing it cool but it's terribly cruel 
          C          G      Csus2
'Cause I ought to be there 

                 D          C   G  F
'Cause you're as bad off as me 

 Em  Em7 A7 C G Csus2

    Csus2         G                  F    Am7/e
And Ray, can we repay ourselves for days that we've 
C            G/b  Am7
Lost through indecision 
With one of recognition 
    Csus2          G              F          Am7/e
If so, then here I go 'cause some things you know  
C                  G/b    Am7
And some you just believe in 
Hope it comes out even
    C       G/b  Am7  F
Ahh ah ah

G              F           Em       Em7      A7
I'm playing it down 'cause I could really be found 
   C                G    C  F
If you've got it to spare 
G              F        Em      Em7   A7
I'm playing it cool but it's terribly cruel 
          C          G      Csus2
'Cause I ought to be there 
          C          G     Em Em7 A7
'Cause I ought to be there         3x
