Bm 
sweeping the floors, open up the doors, yeah
Gb 
turn on the lights, getting ready for tonight
A
nobody's romancing 'cause its too early for dancin

Dbm
bright lights flashing to cover up your lack of so
Gb

Dbm
the disco ball spinning, all the music and the women
Gb
the shots of tequila, man they'll say that they need ya,
A
but what they really need 
Ab
is just a little room to breathe
	

Dbm

lights out, shut down, late night, wet ground
Gb

A
you might feel pity but he only feels the ground
Ab
you understand moods but he only knows let down
Dbm
by the corner there's another one
Gb

A

Ab			 Dbm    Ab
not dead, but definitely dying
