[Intro]

D,A,G x4 (the strumming for the first verse is pretty odd,
try not to strum anything before the D string)

D                               A                        G
He invited me in; said his name was Jesse, and to take a look around
                       D         A            G
I found my coat at the bottom of the closet, dug it out. The only thing that she
D    A             G
left, there in the middle of the room, was the couch. She’d always hated the
D              A        G
pattern or the texture. I can’t remember it now.
(Normal strumming pattern again)
D               A            G        D             A        G
I relived those nights there breaking down. I guess I’ll see myself out.

G           D            A     G             D             A
You kept me waiting like the G Train. I held the door open for hours.

I had to walk away. I rode the A line out to Rockaway. I’m always drawn to the water.
A                     D        A           G
Walked the streets to the shore. Passed by the murals fading off of the walls
                        D           A           G
Still licking the fresh wounds from a hurricane in the fall. And I watch them
D        A          G                                     D
rebuild. I hummed a Ramone’s song out of key. Staring off at the skyline over
A              G           C         G          Em            C
shorebreak and remembering that this same ocean almost killed me. South
G         Em      A
Carolina, seafoam green.

G           D            A     G             D             A
You kept me waiting like the G Train. I held the door open for hours. I had to

walk away. I took the A line out to Rockaway. I’m always drawn to the water.

I felt the weight.

*for this part, palm mute everything until the line “And I read that on a calendar long enough” 

G             Em              Cadd9           Asus
On a calendar long enough all my grief starts to decay.
G             Em                   Cadd9           Asus
On a calendar long enough it grows more useless by the day,
      G                       Em           Cadd9
and I read that on a calendar long enough, New York will be returned to the
Asus G                  Em            Cadd9           Asus
sea. When the water gets high enough, it’ll take back everything.
       G          Em           Cadd9              Asuslt A
So the subway and the G Train, our apartment, all our memories come to
G                Em         Cadd9                           Asus
rest there under water, all the things that I thought meant the most to me.
         G                Em         Cadd9       Asus
I try to picture it– just the top of the skyline at low tide,
             G          Em            Cadd9       Asus
piercing the surface as the ships try to navigate their lanes,
          G(hold)   Em(hold)          Cadd9    Asus
and there alone and triumphant on the crest of a wave
       G(hold) A(hold) D
is the couch you gave away.

These are the tabs for the “And there alone and triumphant”
E|--3----–0-–|
B|--3----–3--|
G|--------–--|
D|--------–--|
A|–2----–2---|
E|3----–0----|
Then just lightly strum the Cadd9 and Asus chords respectively. ^^
