Verse:
         G           Bm
I've got tired eyes, a black sky
Em                        D
Making it's home under my lash line
G                        Bm
You keep on crying babe, I don't mind
Em                       D
I keep on staring at the clock trying to pass time
G           Bm
In my life, it flies by
Em                         D
Faster than you could say, "I love you, goodbye"
G                  Bm
"It's almost over", you say with a sigh
Em                               D                      G
Will our lives be better when we make it to the other side?
 
Chorus:
Bm  Em
Ah, ah
        D                      G
hope we make it to the other side
Bm  Em D
Ah, ah
 
Verse:
G        Bm
Eighteen, prom queen
Em                               D
We spend our time thinking 'bout what we'll be doing
G                        Bm
Walk quiet streets, not afraid of the sounds
Em               D
Nothing bad ever happens in this town
G            Bm
Mean dreams, can't sleep
Em                                D
Younger me thought this'd be more bittersweet
G                        Bm
But we never noticed how long it'd been
Em                       D                G
Got too caught up in the life we're living
 
Chorus:
Bm  Em
Ah, ah
        D                        G
Hope we make it to the other side
Bm  Em D
Ah, ah
 
Bridge:
C             G
And I hope, I hope
            Bm                 Em
All of our homes have white fences
      C       G
And I hope, I hope
               Bm                Em
Our smiles are wider than theirs is
  C       G
I hope, I hope
           Bm                 Em
All of our dreams are kept fragrant
                          D
And I'll meet you on the pavement
                                 G
When we make it to the other side
 
Chorus:
Bm  Em
Ah, ah
        D                       G
Hope we make it to the other side
