Intro- Dm Em F F x4
Dm Em F Dm Em F
I saw myself in an alley. This was me ten years from now.
Dm Em F
He said, "Hey kid don't you remember when I never got older?
Dm Em F
Hey kid don't you remember that I never got older?"
We burn houses bigger than this.
With a three car garage with no cars in it.
Everybody's coming but nobody's leaving.
From outside I can see right into
a table for four with the third chair missing.
It's upside down from reflections on silverware.
Verse 2 same as first
They all want to be helpful. I am not one of those people.
I just sit and wait for grass so green that there is no other side.
Birds that sing with English accents a melody out of time.
We're just slipping away.
Chorus 2 same as first
Am C Dm G x2
Chorus 3 and 4 same as first
