Verse 1:
F        Bbmaj7                Gm7
Salt air, and the rust on your door
               Gm
I never needed anything more
F       Bbmaj7      Gm7
Whispers of "Are you sure?"
             Gm
"Never have I ever  before"
 
Chorus:
    F
But I can see us lost in the memory
Bbmaj7                               Gm7
August slipped away into a moment in time
                    C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
Bbmaj7                              Gm7
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                      C
'Cause you were never mine
 
Verse 2:
F        Bbmaj7          Gm7
Your back beneath the sun
                Gm
Wishin' I could write my name on it
F            Bbmaj7               Gm7
Will you call when you're back at school?
           Gm
I remember thinkin' I had you
 
Chorus:
    F
But I can see us lost in the memory
Bbmaj7                               Gm7
August slipped away into a moment in time
                    C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
Bbmaj7                              Gm7
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                      C
'Cause you were never mine
 
Interlude: F Bbmaj7 Gm C
 
Bridge:
F                                        Bbmaj7
Back when we were still changin' for the better
             Gm
Wanting was enough
               C
For me, it was enough
                F
To live for the hope of it all
                       Bbmaj7
Canceled plans just in case you'd call
                             Gm
And say, "Meet me behind the mall"
                       C
So much for summer love and saying "us"
                   F            Bbmaj7
'Cause you weren't mine to lose
                    Gm   C
You weren't mine to lose, oh
 
Chorus:
    F
But I can see us lost in the memory
Bbmaj7                               Gm7
August slipped away into a moment in time
                    C
'Cause it was never mine
    F
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
Bbmaj7                              Gm7
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                      C
'Cause you were never mine
 
Outro:
F                     Bbmaj7
'Cause you were never mine
      Gm
Never mine
    C
But do you remember?
                F
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
         Bbmaj7
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Gm                                                    C
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
                    F
"Meet me behind the mall"
           F

                    F
"Meet me behind the mall"-
         F
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
         Bbmaj7
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call?
Gm                                                    C
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all -For the hope of it all-
                   F            Bbmaj7
For the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
