D    D                       G               A 
That summer we took threes across the park
       D              D            G             A 
But by fall we were a cover story now in stores
Bm      A      G           D
Make us poster boys in the scene
    G          D          G
For we are not making our acceptance speech
       Bm               A                 G         D
I have found the safest place to keep all of our mistakes
      G
Every dot com refreshing for a journal update

Chorus -x2-:
   D             Bm
So long live the car-crash hearts
Gbm                        A             G
Lie on the couch till the poets come to life
Bm        A
Fix me in forty five

      D         D                      G              A
I can take your problems away, with a nod and a wave
        D           D                          G          A
With my hand, cause that's just the kinda boy that I am
    Bm   A                  G           D
The only thing I've haven't done yet is die
         G         D               G
And it's me and my plus one at the afterlife
           Bm               A             G              D
Crowds are won and lost and won again but our hearts beat
        G
For the diehards

Chorus:
   D             Bm
So long live the car-crash hearts
Gbm                        A             G
Lie on the couch till the poets come to life
Bm        A
Fix me in forty five

D
Long live the car-crash hearts -Long live the car-crash hearts-

Long live the car-crash hearts -Long live the car-crash hearts-


   D
So long live the car-crash hearts
D                          G
Cry on the couch till the poets come to life
          A
Fix me in forty five

  1. -2 with no capo is a good alternative for beginners.

    The correct lyrics are “Last summer we took threes across the board, but by Fall we were a cover story now in stores. Make us poster boys for your scene, but we are not making an acceptance speech,” That is was it says in the book that comes with the CD. Thank you for the chords!
