D...Bm...x2

Verse 1

DNot this time Bmson I've no time to waste D Maybe TomoBmrrow we'll have time to play D And then he slips into Bmhis new BMW D And drives farther and farBmther and farther away E

Pre-chorus 1

E'Cause he works all dGay and tries to sleep at niDght EHe says things will get betterG; better in time D

Chorus

D'Cause he works andGm he builds with his oBmwn two hands DAnd he pours Gmall he has in a cBmastle made with sand DBut the wind aGmnd the rain areBm comin' crashing in DTime will tellGm just how long his kingdom sDtands D Bm Gm His kingdom staDndBms Gm

Verse 2

DHis American dream iBms begining to seem DMore and More like a nightmareBm with every passing day D "Daddy, can you come to my game?"Bm "Oh Baby, please don't work late." D Another wasted weekend Bm And they are slipping away E

Pre-chorus 2

E'Cause he works all daGy and lies awake at night D EHe tells them things will getG better It'll just take a little more time D

Chorus

Verse 3

DHe used to say, "Who ever died Bmwith the most toys wins." DBut if he loses his soul, Bmwhat has he gained in the end DI'll take a shack on a rock BmOver a castle in the sand E

Pre-chorus 3

ENow he works all day aGnd cries alone at night D EIt's not getting any better G Looks like he's running out of time

Chorus

Outro

DAll they really wanted was you DAll they really wanted was you DAll they really wanted was you
