G  Bm  C  D
G  C G

[Verse 1]
G                    Bm
I was sittin’ at the bar,
      C              G
I was minding my own beer,
                      Bm
When she pulled in beside me,
          C             D
Said “You mind if I sit here?”
    G                  Bm
The boys all think I’m lucky,
C                 G
They just hear us laughing,
                  Bm
They don’t know inside,
         C           
I’m just waitin’ for 
    D        G      D  C  G
the wreck to happen.

[Verse 2]
G                       Bm
‘Cause I’ve been here before,
      C              G
And I know what to expect,
                    Bm
You don’t know what hit you,
          C                D
Till they cut you from the wreck,
       G              Bm
It’s a long road to recovery,
         C          G
It won’t happen overnight,
                  Bm
Spend a few years sweeping up,
    C      D       G      D  C  G*
The pieces of your life.

[Chorus]
N.C.         Am
I don’t know why,
D      G
I even try,
          C               D
I took my shots and all I got,
    G
Was gun shy,
                 Am      D
When I closed my ey-ey-eyes,
           G         D/F#
I hear the sounds of two 
       Em
hearts crashing,
C                     D       
I’m just sittin’ here waitin’ 
                 G      D  C  G
for the wreck to happen.

[Verse 3]
G                      Bm
Not a guy here in this bar,
      C               G
Would love to take my place,
                Bm
I’m a spearhead fool,
         C            D
For even wanting to escape,
      G              Bm
Is it better to have loved and lost?
  C                   G
Depends on who you’re asking,
                     Bm
The survivors or the casualties,
C               D        G      
Waitin’ for the wreck to happen.
D  C  G*

hearts crashing,
