E|---------------------------------------3-----------| (repeat 4 times)

Older chests reveal themselves
Like a crack in a wall
Starting small, and grow in time
And we always seem to need the help
Of someone else
To mend that shelf
With too many books
Read me your favourite line

Papa went to other lands
And he found someone who understands
The ticking, and the western man's need to cry
He came back the other day, yeah, you know
Some things in life may change
And some things
They stay the same

Chorus:

A|---------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------3-----------| (repeat 2 times)

Like time, there's always time
On my mind
So pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time

Verse 2: Same as verse 1.
========

Older gents sit on the fence
With their cap in hand
Looking grand
They watch their city change
Children scream, or so it seems,
Louder than before
Out of doors, and into stores with bigger names

Mama tried to wash their faces
But these kids they lost their graces
And daddy lost at the races too many times
She broke down the other day, yeah you know
Some things in life may change
But some things they stay the same

Chorus: Same as before, but now repeat 4 times.
=======

Like time, there's always time
On my mind
So pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time

(Time, there's always time
On my mind
Pass me by, I'll be fine
Just give me time)

Outro: play the intro again. End the song on a bass C (A string, 3rd fret), or
softly strum an open C chord.
======

Note that the notes in brackets are "ghosts notes", which are either to be played very
softly or not at all.
Also note that this tab shows the general theme to the song, to which Damien plays a
couple of slight variations throughout the song. The "ghost notes" are part of these
variations, for example; sometimes they are played, sometimes they're not. Dynamics are 
very important in the execution of this beautiful tune.
Just listen to the recording if you want to hear the exact details of these variations
and dynamics.

That's it. Hope you enjoy!

Cheers!
