E   Ebm            Dbm       B
For once, there is nothing up my sleeve
E         Ebm         Dbm            B
Just some scars from a life that used trouble me
   E     Ebm         Dbm         B
I used to run at first sight of the sun
E                B          Dbm      B
Now I lay here waiting for you to wake up
E       Ebm          Dbm                B
The city outside still sounds like it's on fire


E              Ebm    
You put on new sheets
    Db             B
The white flag of a Saturday night
E       Ebm        Db      B
I know we stayed up talking in circles
E                Ebm  
But I like to think the symmetry
    Db             B
Will keep me close to you


E          Ebm              Db             B
For everyone, I'm out to pull wrong, you keep the light on
E        Ebm           Db            B
The only one, you now me better than the truth
E                    Ebm         Db            B
So despite what I've done I pray to God that we can move on
E             Ebm                         Db              B
Cause thus far you are the best thing that this life is yet to lose


E        Ebm          Db          B
And, for once there is nothing up my sleeve
E         Ebm        Db           B
Just some scars from a life that used to trouble me
E        Ebm         Db       B
I used to run at first sight of the sun
       E        Ebm      Dbm      B
Now I lay here waiting for you to wake up


   E        Ebm      Dbm      B
I lay here waiting for you to wake up
    E           Ebm   Db          B
So if you gonna leave, if you gonna go
    E           Ebm    Db              B
I can't bare to sleep without you in my arms
E              Ebm                         Db                  B
I know we got caught up slipping through a crowd of people and losers


         E               Ebm         
But you must not let them take you
             Db           B
They don't know you like I do
E   Ebm            Dbm       B
For once, there is nothing up my sleeve
E         Ebm          Dbm           B
Just some scars from a life that used trouble me


   E     Ebm         Dbm         B
I used to run at first sight of the sun
E                B          Dbm      B
Now I lay here waiting for you to wake up
E            B          Dbm      B
I lay here waiting for you to wake up
           E            Ebm             Dbm                       B         
Do you remember when we stayed up till the sun stretched through the room


            E              Ebm             Dbm  B
I used to blame it on the queens walking down 7th Avenue
            E                Ebm 
It’s been years now since we moved
             Dbm            B
I’ve gotten through with an excuse
            E                 Ebm         
You know I try not to speak superlatives
           Dbm        B
But it's impossible to you

-instrumental part-

E         Ebm      Dbm           B
The city outside is nothing but a flicker now
E            Ebm              Dbm         B
You see our friends to bed, you turn out the lights
E          Ebm                Dbm       B
I start to think you'll make a beautiful mother, I
E         Ebm                   Dbm              B
I like to think I have everything I want from this life.
