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