Verse 1:
Am           Dm                   G            Am
You are, a getaway car, rush of blood to the head
A7            Dm                     G           C-G/B
and but me, I’m just the covers on top of your bed
Am               Dm                G            Am
You steer in a rear view mirror, make my head swim
A7           Dm                    G
I keep you warm and not ask you, where– you’ve been

Refrain:
Am       Dm          G              Am
With your backless black dress soaked to the skin
Am                 Dm          G        Am
When it’s said and done, we’re all scrambling
Am     Dm     G       Am
And we’re, friends, we’re friends
Am     Dm            Bb
Just because we move u—nits

Chorus 2:
C              G/B           F
Strike, us like matches, ‘cuz everyone deserves the flames
Am             G               F
We only do it for the scars and stories, not the fame
C    G/B             F
At least everyone is trying, (everyone is shining)
Am         G                           F
Everyone deserves the flames, but it’s such a shame Such a shame

Verse 2:
Am               Dm               G            Am
The sounds, of this small town, make my ears hurt (make my ears hurt)
A7              Dm               G             C     G/B
“Oh yeah, you caught me” But I caught you on worse oh
Am               Dm              G                          Am
They say, “You want a war? You got a war” But who are you fighting for?
Am                              Dm          G
The tides out the ship’s run aground, We drown, traitors in shallow water
