Verse:
C 
High rise, veins of the avenue 
C                                    Am
Bright eyes and subtle variations of blue.
Am                               F
Everywhere balanced there like a rainbow above you.
C
Street lights glisten on the boulevard.
C                                     Am
And cold nights make staying alert so hard.
Am                                                       F
For heaven’s sake, keep me awake so I won’t be caught off guard.
F                                                Dm
Clearly I am a passerby but I’ll find a place to stay.
F             G                       C
Dear pacific day, won’t you take me away?

Verse:
C
Small town hearts of the New Year
C                               Am
Brought down by gravity crystal clear.
Am                                                    C
City fog and brave dialogue converge on the frontier.
C
Make hast, I feel your heartbeat
C                                     Am
With new taste for speed, out on the street.
Am                                                      F
Find a road to a humble abode where both of our routes meet.
F                                                        Dm
The silver sound is all around and the colors fall like snow.
F                         G                          C
The feeling of letting go, I guess we’ll never know.

Chorus:
C
Cheer up and dry your damp eyes
Am
And tell me when it rains
Dm
And I’ll blend up that rainbow above you
Am                         G
And shoot it through your veins.
C
Cause your heart has a lack of color.
Am
And we should’ve known
Dm
That we’d grow up sooner or later
F                  G                C
Cause we wasted all our free time alone.

Interlude: C  Am  C  Am

Verse:
C
Your nerves gather with the altitude
C                                            Am
Exhale the stress so you don’t come unglued.
Am
Somewhere there is a happy affair, a ghost of a good mood.
C
Wide eyed, panic on the getaway 
C
The high tide could take me so far away
Am                                       F
VCRs and motorcars unite on the Seventh Day
F                                                              Dm
a popular gauge will measure the range of the new Post-Modern Age.
       F                   G                    -Am-
Cause somewhere along the line all the decades align.

Bridge:
Am             G            C     F
  We were the crashing whitecaps.
F
  On the ocean -on the ocean-.
Am              G        C  Ab    Eb F
  What a lovely seaside holiday, away.
F    G            Am         F
  a palm tree in Christmas lights.
F
My emotion.
Am                   G            C    Dm
  Struck a sparkling tone like a xylophone.
   F             G     C
As we spent the day alone.

Interlude: C     Am     Dm     Am  G

Chorus:
C
Cheer up and dry your damp eyes
Am
And tell me when it rains
Dm
And I’ll blend up that rainbow above you
Am                         G
And shoot it through your veins.
C
Cause your heart has a lack of color.
Am
And we should’ve known
Dm
That we’d grow up sooner or later
F                  G                C
Cause we wasted all our free time alone.

Outro:
C     Am     C     Am     F     F     Dm     F  G  C
