Verse:
E
walking outside labyrinthian over

cracks along under the trees
        A
I know this town grounded in a compass

cardinal landed in the dogwood
E
I keep going over it over and over

my steps iterate my shame
         A
how come every outcome's such a comedown

lately afternoon with the shades drawn down
E
I kept saying I just wanted to see you

saying what's wrong with that?
         A
needles shaking outlines in a compass

every outcome's such a comedown
 
Chorus:
E                  A
I knew it when I saw it
                      Dbm
so I did just what I wanted
Gbm               A
so I go through with this 
A
I knew happiness when I saw it
 
Verse:
E
I saw your boyfriend at the port authority

that's a sort of xxxxed up place
            A
well, so I averted my stride on a quick one

he's coming back from going over your place, huh
E
I feel like we could forget about it

I feel like I could mellow out
        A
I don't feel undone in a big way

there's nothing really bad to be upset about
E
just when I thought I was getting better

I woke up on the ground
   A
an appointment or a disappointment

a setback, oh another comedown
 
Chorus:
E                A
as if I needed a reminder
                     Dbm
oh, I do only what I wanna 
Gbm     A
so I go through with this...
 
Verse:
E
walking out in the nighttime springtime

needling my way home
      A
I saw Leah on the bus a few months ago

I saw some old friends at her funeral
Dbm
my steps keep splitting my grief through
E
these solipsistic moods 
         A
I should call my parents when I think of them

should tell my friends when I love them
E
maybe I should have gone out a bit more 

when you guys were still in town
      A
I got too caught up in my own xxxx

that's how every outcome's such a comedown
 
Chorus:
E                    A
and I knew it when I saw it 
                     Dbm
oh I did just what I wanted
Gbm     A
so I go through with this 
A
I knew happiness when I saw it
