Intro: 
Riff 1a x3
Riff 1b x1

Verse 1 (Riff 1a):
You say that you need love
just like a kid on crack
I got a feeling that what you want is kind of holding you back

Verse 2 (Riff 1a):
You say you can't find your feet
under the morning sun I got a feeling that what you are,
might just be blowing away your mind

Chorus 1 (Riff 1a):

Thought I talking about a new religion
Raining on the outside, lost in the fog
I was only dreaming of a revolution
Waiting for the right time, 
Watching the clock

(Riff 2) x1

I was only dreaming about revolution
B5                                           
Waiting for the right time, watching the clock
