(Brian Wilson / Terry Sachen)

Verse 1:

Bb F7 Bb
I know so many people who think they can do it alone
F7 Bb
They isolate their heads and stay in their safety zone

Db Ab/Gb
Now what can you tell them
Db Ab Gm Fm Eb
And what can you say that won't make them defensive

Chorus:

Bb/F Gm
I know there's an answer
Bb/F Gm Cm7 Cm7/F
I know now but I have to find it by myself

Verse 2:

They come on like they're peaceful
But inside they're so uptight
They trip through their day
And waste all their thoughts at night

Now how can I come on
And tell them the way that they live could be better

[repeat chorus]
