Verse:
               C
This town will never change
                        G
People come and go, it's all the same
                       C
Speed the roads on our doubting days
                    G
To any place that's far away


                C
I never learned anybody's name
                  G
We all vowed that we wouldn't stay
                     C
Kissing signs on the interstate
                     G
All we do for now is sit and wait

Pre-Chorus:
C               G      C                G
Ah, In our idle town. Ah, in our idle town

Chorus:
      Am                       G
Yeah, we invent our own little games -in our idle town-
      Am                       G
When the lights out at the stadium, hey -in our idle town-
      Am                       G
Making life a spinning arcade -in our idle town-
       C                  G                   C
And curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise
G                   C
We watch the sunrise
G
We watch the sun

Verse:
                    C
Springtime when the air is thin
                               G
We're getting antsy and they're noticing
                      C
While everybody's off partying
                          G
We're watching stars over ice-cream


                            C
And now we're kicking up to seventh gear
                           G
And we're breathing in the atmosphere
                        C
And I don't even need a sip of beer
                G
Yeah I can feel it all

Pre-Chorus:
C               G      C                G
Ah, In our idle town. Ah, in our idle town

Chorus:
      Am                       G
Yeah, we invent our own little games -in our idle town-
      Am                       G
When the lights out at the stadium, hey -in our idle town-
      Am                       G
Making life a spinning arcade -in our idle town-
       C                  G                   C
And curfew's at midnight, we watch the sunrise
G                   C
We watch the sunrise
G
We watch the sun

Bridge:
C                    G
  And they watched the sunrise
                    C         G
Blinking out of red eyes, and sore minds
C                    G                    C
  The airplanes keep flying by, and they cry
                          G
'Cause they've never even touched the sky
C                       G
 No, they'll never even touch the sky

Chorus:
     C                        G
Yeah we invent our own little games -in our idle town-
     C                    G
And everybody's trying to escape -in our idle town-
C                   G
Killing time at the yellow café -in our idle town-
C                         G
 And curfew's at midnight -in our idle town-

Outro:
    C                         G
Yeah I think that we'll all be okay -in our idle town-
    C                        G
The idle town will stay as it stays -in our idle town-
   C                         G
And everyone I love's in this place -in our idle town-
 C
So curfew's at midnight
G
 We watch the sunrise
