Huh?

So a verse-
Am G D (fingerpicked)
then…
G Bm C G as a chorus
The verse and chorus don’t sit that well, not a totally natural transition, but it does sound ok.

Then lyrics…

I guess it’s a rest from ourselves.
Must be a test to see what is real.
I should have confessed many times already.
Just see if we keep our ends of the deal.

I’m hoping to learn enough to be ready.
though I forget far too fast to know.
I need some new wheels to drive to distraction.
Wherever I get I’ll put them on show.

(chorus)
And it takes real heart to kick start the changes we need.
Now it’s high time we down tools and follow a lead.
We think long we think hard we’re standing still.
We can go slow sink so low empty our fill.

Time to take stock, find out who we are.
Changing the locks, chasing the clocks that tell us when.
Believing in doubt, if it gets out, will take us so far.
When getting about this kind of drought again.

My collection of thoughts, numbers and noughts, makes me nervous.
The meaning of I when I’m getting by is not worth a fee.
Criss crossing the land with pencil in hand, so impervious.
Somewhere to go, something to do, someone to be.

(chorus)
And it takes real heat to kick start the changes that we need.
Now it’s high time we down tools and follow a lead.
Well we think long and we think hard while standing still.
Yeah we can go slow sink so low empty our fill.
