         DOWNTIME   Jo Dee Messina

   B                                        F#         vamp
Haven't been myself these days According to   friends
B                                                    F#   vamp  
I tend to lose a part of me When my heart is on the mend
D#m                    B
I'll be alright it's safe to say 
G#                         C#
Cause just like your love this is only a phaze

CHORUS:
           F#                  C#             B
1.2.)Well I've been down this road a time or two
3.) So
               C#
It's  Nothing new  
      F#             C#           D#m  B 
Well I'll get on my feet and over you-ou
                G#                                 B   C#
1.2.)  I tell myself that everything will be just fine-ine
3.)But
    B               C#                   F#
Oh I'm just going through a little down-time
1.) go to 2nd verse
2.) lead

B                                                        F#     vamp
Some might think I've gotten caught up In heartache's aftermath
B                                                               F#   vamp
But your memory's taking second to a good book And a nice long bath
D#m               B                G#                    C#
I must admit it threw me at first But I'm convinced I'm over the worst

Chorus, lead,
       B               D#m
Well time is meant to play the part
      B                F#     C#
In taking of care of broken hearts

Chorus
ENDING:
    B                C# 
Oh I'm just going through a little 
    B               C#
Oh I'm just going through a little 
    B                C#                  F#
Oh I'm just going through a little down-time
