Verse 1:
E                      Em
  Did you ever in your    life before
 D   A             E
Feel   as bad as this?
E                 Em
  Did you ever in    good time think
   D           A     E
My   life had gone amiss?
{{*}}
      Em                   A
Now I    feel I've been unfair
         Em                     A
'Cause I    catch you hanging there.
        E              Em
Did you   ever in your    life before
D      A             E
  Feel   as bad as this?

Verse 2:
E                     Em
  God knows I tried a    half a year
       D        A        E
But it   didn't   do no good.
E                     Em
  My damnedest try to    make it work,
  D          A     E
I   knew it never would.
{{*}}
            Em                     A
Now there's    nothin' wrong with you,
            Em                         A
And there's    nothing you could ever do.
      E             Em
God knows I tried a    half a year
       D        A        E
But it   didn't   do no good.

Verse 3:
E                          Em
  The times were good, but    over now,
  D          A      E
A   pleasant   memory.
E                      Em
  I'm sorry, there's a - nother face,
D              A       E
  One that's close to me.

      Em               A
You know 'bout what I learned

And there's    no stone left unturned.

  The times were good, but    over now,
  D          A      E
A   pleasant   memory.

Quote

This is the story I have been told about this song which came from Chuck Panozzo. It was written by John P AND John C. The only members from Styx on the song are the 2 Johns and Chuck. Dennis and JY wanted nothing to do with the song. They dont appear on it anywhere. Chuck said it was a big FUCK YOU to Dennis who, at the time was writing artsy-fartsy, Emerson, Lake & Palmer crap.

Chuck Panozzo with Tommy Shaw and Lawrence Gowan
