"Breakdown" by Jack Johnson, Dan Nakamura and Paul Huston

Verse 1:

[C] I hope this old [Em] train breaks down.
[Am] Then I could take a [G] walk around and
[C] See what there [Em] is to see
[Am] Time is just a [G] melody

With all the [C] people in the street
Walking [Em] fast as their feet
Can take them, [Am] I just roll through town. [G]

And though my [C] window's got a view,
Well, the [Em] frame I'm looking through,
Seems to [Am] have no concern for me now. [G]

So for now I...

[C] I need this here train [Am] old train to [G] break down
[C] Oh, please just [Am] let me please [G] breakdown

Instrumental bridge:

[C] [Em] [Am] [G] [C] [Em] [Am] [G]

Verse 2:

[C] Well, this engine [Em] screams out loud,
[Am] Centipede gonna [G] crawl west bound.
[C] So I don't even [Em] make a sound cause
[Am] It's gonna sting me when I [G] leave this town.

And all the [C] people in the street
That I'll [Em] never get to meet
(if) these [Am] tracks don't bend somehow. [G]

And [C] I got no time
that I [Em] got to get to where
[Am] I don't need to be. [G]

So I...

[C] I need this here train [Am] old train to [G] break down
[C] Oh, please just [Am] let me please [G] breakdown.

[C] I need this here [Am] old train to [G] break down
[C] Oh, please just [Am] let me please [G] breakdown
[G] I wanna [F] break on [C] down.
[G] But I [F] can't stop now. [C]
[G] Let me [F] break on down. [C] [G]

Verse 3:

[F] But you [C] can't stop nothing if you [Em] got no control
Of the [Am] thoughts in your mind that you [G] kept in, you know.
You [C] don't know nothing, but you [Em] don't need to know.
The [Am] wisdom's in the trees, not the [G] glass windows.
You [C] can't stop wishing if you [Em] don't let go
The [Am] things that you find and you [G] lose you know.
You [C] keep on rolling, put the [Em] moment on hold.
The [Am] frame's too bright so put the [G] blinds down low.
And...

[C] [Em] [Am]

[G] I wanna break on [C] down. [Em] [Am]
[G] But I can't stop now. [C]
