Verse 1: [Keep Figure 1 Finger Pattern The Rest Of The Song]
      A                         D2(no3)/A
Gone away, the days of wish and wondering
     A                        D2(no3)/A
Far away, like a vision in my mind
     F#m      G#dim7    D             A
The child has grown and left me here alone
Bm7                             D/E
Looking back to what was left behind
 
Verse 2: [Played Like Verse 1]

Lullabys and pennies in a wishing well
Sad goodbyes to friends of make believe
A love so pure, a treasure
C2         Bm7           A  Bm7(slide)C#m7
Now buried in the sea of me

Chorus 1:
D              C#m        Bm7              A
Milton lost his paradise, Dorothy lost her way
Bm7              F#m     Bm7                 [Riff 2]
Vincent lost his sanity, Thomas lost his faith
D               C#m          Bm7              F#m7
Hoover lost the second time, Sigmund lost his friend
Bm7           F#m7            Bm7     Bm7/E  [Figure 1]
Me, I lost my innocence and I want it back again


Verse 3: [Played Like Verse 2]
 
A tug-of-war is going on inside of me
A calloused heart that wants to make a change
While time prevails fighting tooth and nail
Keeping me set in my ways


Chorus 2: [Played Like Chorus 1]

Marco found the orient, Gepetto found his boy
Lincoln found a unity that Lee could not destroy
Lindy found the other side, Gershwin found the stage
Me, I found a stuborness that seems to grow with age


Bridge: [Instead O3f Figure 1 After Chorus]

     A                   D                               A
As I dream of where I'll go, may I learn from where I've gone
                             D           Esus E
And take the memories that I hold into tomorrow

Repeat Chorus 1

Outro: [Instead Of Figure 1 After Chorus]
  G2(no3)       Bm7        Bm7/E          [Figure 1]
I had it once before and I want it back again
