DD chord         GG chord        DD chord
 She waits at windows
                 GG chord       GbmGbm chord             EmEm chord           GG chord  
Her dreams don’t show in color and she sleeps for now
         AA chord
She just waits around wishing she-


DD chord                           
 Could leave, single mothers
           GG chord             GbmGbm chord             EmEm chord         GG chord 
In parking lots and wear another girl’s evening out
           AA chord
This place let you down easy


GbmGbm chord             GG chord
 She gets up to buy a drink
GbmGbm chord         GG chord        GbmGbm chord       EmEm chord
 I’d notice why when she walks by
                                GG chord
There’s something caught in her eye, she says


               DD chord          GG chord
That she can’t change for love
        DD chord             GG chord          GbmGbm chord     EmEm chord  
And she explains how long she’s waited for
EmEm chord    GbGb chord     AA chord
She wanted more


DD chord GG chord DD chord GG chord 


DD chord            GG chord                 DD chord
 Dead leaves, desperate summers
         GG chord               GbmGbm chord         EmEm chord           GG chord 
All-ages clubs and metal shutter to keep you out
GbGb chord        AA chord
While we hang around factories


DD chord        GG chord              DD chord
 ‘Till we meet each other
             GG chord               GbmGbm chord         EmEm chord       GG chord   
Two discount lives and heavy numbers to keep you down
     AA chord
If I wait around, maybe she-


GbmGbm chord                GG chord
 Might come back to say that I’m
GbmGbm chord          GG chord       GbGb chord           EmEm chord
 Not sure you know my name, that’s fine
                          GG chord
But take me with you this time she says


               DD chord          GG chord
That she can’t change for love
        DD chord            GG chord          GbmGbm chord     EmEm chord 
And she explains how long she’s waited for
    GbGb chord     AA chord
She wanted more


BmBm chord   DD chord
Gone today
  GbmGbm chord         AA chord      BmBm chord
I might just see you around
   AA chord          GG chord      EmEm chord                 BmBm chord   DD chord
It hurts, but I understand if you can’t find another
GbmGbm chord     AA chord     GG chord 
reason not to stay
                        GG chord
And while she’s walking away she says


               DD chord          GG chord
That she can’t change for love
        DD chord            GG chord          GbmGbm chord     EmEm chord 
And she explains how long she’s waited for
    GbmGbm chord     AA chord
She wanted more


             DD chord         GG chord
And as these days go by
                DD chord          GG chord          GbGb chord      EmEm chord  
Well they can’t change how long we’ve waited for
   GbmGbm chord         AA chord
AA chord love that’s more
                   DD chord
AA chord love that’s more

  1. I’m not entirely sure that the gb is needed-I think you can just substitute in a gbm or miss it out completely. To me it just sounds a little off? But otherwise this great, and I’m so thankful that it’s on here. This is one of my favourite songs from Hesitant Alien, I would love to see more of them :)
