[Verse]    G Em7 Dsus4 C5add9

I found you sitting on a suitcase crying
Beneath my feet, I feel the rumble of a subway train
And I laugh out loud 'cause it's the one thing I hadn't been trying
The train came in breathless, the passenger's restless,
    you say, "Baby, you'll never change"

[Chorus]    G Am7 C Dsus4

You gotta get gone, you gotta get going,
    Hey, the world ain't slowin' down for no one
It's a carnival calling out to you
And it sounds like a song, it hits you like scripture,
    you paint the picture With colors squeezed from your hand
Weren't you the kid / Who just climbed on a merry-go-round
    Hey, look, the world ain't slowin' down

[Verse]    G Em7 Dsus4 C5add9

Out on the sidewalk, The pigeons do the moonwalk
    I'll be dancing like Fred Astaire 
The lampposts are rockin' The whole town is talking Like a fool in a barber's chair
And I get the sensation It's joy and frustration
    Like getting caught by a drop of cold rain
Freedom can numb you When there's no place to run to 
    It feels just like Novocain

[Chorus]    G Am7 C Dsus4

You gotta get gone...

[Bridge]    G (x2) C5add9 Dsus4

You packed up all your handbags
    You're throwing off the sandbags
    I let go when you stepped free

[Verse]    G Em7 Dsus4 C5add9

I didn't want to lose you
    You said, "You didn't choose to --
    It's just how your karma came"
But thanks for the vision,
    And the twenty-twenty wisdom
    It hit me like a south-bound train

[Chorus]    G Am7 C Dsus4

You gotta get gone...

               C                            D
You paint the picture , With   colors   squeezed    from   your   hand

                                                                            G
