Intro: Abm  Gb  E  Gb

B                        E 
Don't believe everything happiness says
B                         E 
Nothing feels better than hiding these days 
   B        E            B                E 
We bury our fears in the drinks, in these tears
        Abm       Gb              E        Gb
For the days we believed we could fly


B                         E 
Call up your brothers and sisters and friends
         B                           E 
We'll go back to the place where the night never ends
        B          E          B           E 
We'll remember the fires, the burning car tires
    Abm        Gb              E           Gb
Boy how in the hell did we get here?


   B                      E              
So why don't you meet me, down behind the old school
      B                            Abm       Gb
We'll waste away the weekend, with perfect regard for how 
B                            E 
Cavalier we used to be, that beautiful insanity
    B       
The apathy surrounding me
Abm              Gb            B            E 
Don't close your eyes or we'll fade....... away 


B                 E 
Over and over and over again 
       B                       E 
We sat down for a minute, grew up into men
          B           E         B            E 
Now we're putting out fires and changing car tires
    Abm    Gb              E            Gb
Man how in hell did we get here?


   B                      E 
So why don't you meet me, down behind the old school
      B                       Abm            Gb    
We'll waste away the weekend, with perfect regard for how 
B                            E 
Cavalier we used to be, that beautiful insanity
    B 
The apathy surrounding me
Abm              Gb            
Don't close your eyes or we'll 


A     E        B 
Fade away this time
          Abm
And we'll never get back what we 
A     E            Gb                                    
Gave away, when we still have that fire in our eyes
B                        E 
Don't believe everything happiness says
B                           E 
Nothings as real as our old reckless ways
        B            E 
When we drink by the fires
    B           E 
The burning car tires
    B              E 
Bad girls and good liars
    B           E 
The dreams we'd conspire
    Abm          Gb
The days we went crazy 
    B               E 
The nights wild and hazy 
    Abm        Gb              E              Gb
Man how in the hell did we get here?


   B                      E 
So why don't you meet me, down behind the old school
      B                            Abm       Gb
We'll waste away the weekend, with perfect regard for how 
B                            E 
Cavalier we used to be, that beautiful insanity
    B
The apathy's surrounding me
Abm              Gb             
Don't close your eyes or we'll fade
