When I Stop
©2004 L.Tracy, Ad Astra Music (ASCAP)

D G D G D G D G
(Hard initial strike, then building straight strum)
D G
Five fifty-nine, the day's beginning
Beating the clock by a minute or two
I can't stay here, I gotta get going
You know there are so many things to do

D G D G...

Jump behind the wheel, it's time to hurry
Dodge the accidents along the way
Running out of gas, just one more worry
There's more things going on than I can say

Em Bmn
But…when I STOP
D A
I see through the illusion
Em Bm A
The stillness at the center my release
Em Bm
And…when I STOP
D A
There is no more confusion
Em Bm F#
Finding a way to be at peace

They say you have to buy it if you break it
It seems there are so many things to fear
Getting through the day, I hope I make it
Quitting time is almost, almost here

But…when I STOP
I see through the illusion
The stillness at the center my release
And…when I STOP
There is no more confusion
Finding a way to be at peace

F# G F# G A
At peace...

Oh…when I STOP
I see through the illusion
The stillness at the center my release
And…when I STOP
There is no more confusion
Em Bm A
Finding a way to be at peace

(Keep playing through chord changes, no stopping)

Yes…when I stop
I see through the illusion
The stillness at the center my release
And…when I stop
There is no more confusion
Finding a way to be at peace

A (A, A11, A9, A pattern) - fading, then to...

Em Bm
And…when I STOP!
