Verse 1:
C  Am  F                                         C    Am  F
         There's glitter on the floor after the party
                                        C    Am  F
Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby
                                 C       Am    F
Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor
 
You and me from the night before but

I want your midnights
C                         Am                  F          C
  But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year’s Day

C  Am  F                                                    C    Am  F
         You squeeze my hand three times in the back of the taxi
                                          C  Am  F
I can tell that it's gonna be a long road
                                                   C  Am  F
I'll be there if you're the toast of the town babe
 
Or if you strike out and you're crawling home

  But I stay when it's hard or it’s wrong or we're making mistakes
  Am  F     C
I want your midnights
C                         Am                  F          C
  But I'll be cleaning up bottles with you on New Year’s Day
