Said you found a way to end it peacefully
    C7
I remember finding shoes near the lake under a tree
        F                                                      C
And I'm sittin' on the shore, I thought I saw your charm float by
   Am                                                 C
It doesn't matter now 'cause all you wanted to do was die. Yeah

   G
If only you'd stuck around, I know I made a sound
                                                    C     C/B Am
But now you're on the ocean floor and I've opened a brand new door
C     C/B Am
Brand new door

C
Swimming out to sea trying to find something else
      C7
While I'm skipping stones and I'm listening to the shells
      F                                       C
And I won't forget you if someone else comes along

  Am                              Dm                Bb
I found the words you wrote but I would not dare to quote
   Am           Dm         Am                    G                   C
My friends, the lines you amend, like "what's so bad about, dying anyway?"

C
Swimming out to sea trying to find something else
      C7
While I'm skipping stones and I'm listening to the shells
      F                                       C
And I won't forget you if someone else comes along
       Am                                       C
You'll always come to mind whenever I hear that song

    G
The one about photographs sung by Ringo Starr
                                                     C     C/B Am
Especially in the chorus part, you always said, "Now, don't you start"
C     C/B Am
don't you start, yeah, yeah
C     C/B Am
don't you start
C     C/B Am      F Bb
don't you start
