                [Intro]

G    D    C        x 2


[Verse 1]
G              D                 C
We wanted to know when we'd be free
      G                      D                   C
What life looked like on the other side of that sanctuary
G              D                   C
Believin' somehow we'd make them proud
             G                  D                  C                 G    D    C
Knowin' the sins they made and figuring we could stay on common ground


[Verse 2]
G           D                  C
Cigarette smoke in an August sky
               G            D                 C
Drinkin' the beers you convinced your older brother to buy
G              D              C
We hadn't make any of our mistakes
     G                    D                C
Our world was in the cradle but innocence wasn't in the grave


[Chorus 1]
Em      D               C       G
And I know we can't go back in time
           Em               D                 C
But every now and then you look at me and I know you wonder why
              G               D             C
We can't get back to when September was our only adversary
                 D     G  D C    G   D   C
In the lot behind St. Mary's


[Verse 3]
G               D                 C
Well I thought I'd be all you'd need
           G               D                C
But your heart was in the dark and mine was in the weeds
     G                     D                 C
I'm sure the dreamer who built the first trapeze
         G                      D        C
Fell in love with someone who grew to resent the goddamn thing


[Chorus 2]
Em      D               C       G
And I know we can't go back in time
           Em               D            C
But every now and then you look at me as if to wonder why
              G                   D               C
We can't get back to the love we made before our teenage dreams were buried
                 D     G  D C
In the lot behind St. Mary's
     G  D C
St. Mary's


[Instrumental]

G    D    C        x 2


[Verse 4]
G              D                 C
A nightlight glowed in the rectory
    G                  D               C
We told ourselves the pastor must be sound asleep
              G               D             C
But now we're old enough to know he never slept
          G               D               C
And that God's love is almighty, but our love is just bones and flesh


[Chorus 3]
Em      D               C       G
And I know we can't go back in time
           Em               D                   C
But every now and then you reach for me and I close my eyes and try
        G            D               C
To get back to that summer and the blue jeans we were wearin'
                 D     G  D C
In the lot behind St. Mary's
     G  D  C
St. Mary's


[Outro]

G    D    C       x 2
