[Intro]
N.C.
 Okay, alright, just let me think
C
 Alright, just let me think
 
 Just let me think


[Verse 1]
C
 My heart is a troubled captain in poisoned television waters
             F
 I have this air-conditioned nightmare
  
 Like that book you gave to me last summer
      Bb                                F
 That made me think that everything was so much worse than it really was
    C
 My heart is a troubled captain

 But let's not get caught up on the weather
              F
 I could keep searching for the meaning

 Try to keep this all together
                Bb
 But you've got green eyes like the forest
       F
 I got lost in on the way to some other life


[Chorus]
 C
 Brooklyn, Brooklyn, my dear
 Bb                F
 Brooklyn, my dear, you're killing me
 C
 Brooklyn, Brooklyn, my dear
 Bb                F
 Brooklyn, my dear, you're killing me


[Verse 2]
    N.C.
 My hand is a brain dead magnet

 So I keep waking up on fire
              F
 Beneath this low rise second city

 That's turning good men into liars
               Bb
 And maybe I'm not all that good
           F
 But I was better in your west coast bed
    C
 My hand is a brain dead magnet

 But let's not get caught up on connections
              F
 I could keep searching for a meaning

 But I'm still looking for directions
       Bb                                F
 I was baptized in your parents' pool in southern California

 Then I fled


[Chorus]
 C
 Brooklyn, Brooklyn, my dear
 Bb                F
 Brooklyn, my dear, you're killing me
 C
 Brooklyn, Brooklyn, my dear
 Bb                F
 Brooklyn, my dear, you're killing me
  C                      Bb           F
 (La la la-la laa, la-la laa la la-la laa la la)
  C                      Bb           F
 (La la la-la laa, la-la laa la la-la laa la la)

C C F F
Bb F

[Bridge]
N.C
 My hand is a brain dead magnet
           C
 So I keep waking up on fire
              F
 Beneath this low rise second city

 That's turning good men into liars


[Chorus]
 C
 Brooklyn, Brooklyn, my dear
 Bb                F
 Brooklyn, my dear, you're killing me
 C
 Brooklyn, Brooklyn, my dear
 Bb                F
 Brooklyn, my dear, you're killing me


[Chorus]
 C
 Brooklyn, Brooklyn, my dear
 Bb                F
 Brooklyn, my dear, you're killing me
 C
 Brooklyn, Brooklyn, my dear
 Bb                F
 Brooklyn, my dear, you're killing me
  C                      Bb           F
 (La la la-la laa, la-la laa la la-la laa la la)
  C                      Bb           F
 (La la la-la laa, la-la laa la la-la laa la la)
  C                      Bb           F
 (La la la-la laa, la-la laa la la-la laa la la)
  C                      Bb           N.C.
 (La la la-la laa, la-la laa la la-la laa la la)

[Verse 1]
            Fm
 We cross a country
       Ab
 In an airplane with the wings on fire
 Cm                              Bb
 Hanging from the seat belt sign
            Fm
 That’s the one thing
            Ab
 There’s no safety in desire
    Cm                               Bb
 Preserving life is as good as dying


[Pre-Chorus] 
                 Fm             Ab
 And these could be the best or darkest days
              Cm             Bb
 The lines we walk are paper thin
              Fm               Ab
 And we could pull this off or push away
               Cm             Bb
 Cause you and me have always been


[Chorus]
N.C. Fm         Ab
  So close, so close to giving up
    Cm                         Bb
 So close to going all the way
    Fm        Ab 
 So close, so close to taking off
    Cm                     Bb
 So close to going nowhere
    Fm        Ab
 So close, so close to giving up
    Cm                          Bb
 So close to going all the way
    Fm        Ab
 So close, so close to taking off
    Cm                        Bb
 So close to going nowhere, nowhere


[Verse 2]
             Fm               Ab
 I heard you whisper over the hum of an electric chair
    Cm                                 Bb
 To live like this could take its toll
               Fm
 But you’re no stranger
        Ab
 To the high of almost getting there
        Cm                           Bb
 Are we losing touch or taking hold?


[Pre-Chorus] 
                 Fm             Ab
 And these could be the best or darkest days
              Cm             Bb
 The lines we walk are paper thin
              Fm               Ab
 And we could pull this off or push away
               Cm             Bb
 Cause you and me have always been


[Chorus]
N.C. Fm         Ab
  So close, so close to giving up
    Cm                         Bb
 So close to going all the way
    Fm        Ab 
 So close, so close to taking off
    Cm                     Bb
 So close to going nowhere
    Fm        Ab
 So close, so close to giving up
    Cm                          Bb
 So close to going all the way
    Fm        Ab
 So close, so close to taking off
    Cm                        Bb
 So close to going nowhere, nowhere


[Bridge]
Fm       Ab
 I wanna go there
Cm       Bb
 I wanna go there
Fm       Ab
 I wanna go there
Cm    Bb
 With you


[Chorus]
    Fm         Ab
 So close, so close to giving up
    Cm                         Bb
 So close to going all the way

 So close, so close to taking off

 So close to going nowhere

 So close to going all the way
    Fm        Ab
 So close, so close to taking off
    Cm                        Bb
 So close to going nowhere, nowhere

    Fm         Ab
 So close, so close to giving up
    Cm                         Bb
 So close to going all the way
    Fm        Ab 
 So close, so close to taking off
    Cm                     Bb
 So close to going nowhere

 So close, so close to giving up

 So close to going all the way

 So close, so close to taking off
    Cm                        Bb
 So close to going nowhere, nowhere

Bm  A  D  G

[Verse 1]
                 Bm
 I think I dug a hole so deep
A                     D
 And lately it's been hard to sleep
G                   Bm    A      D
 And maybe I should dig a little more
G             Bm
 Buried under covers friend
A                       D
 Don't wanna play those songs again
G                  Bm     G         F#
 Until I found someone to play them for


[Chorus]
                 G
 Don't speak for me
          A                             Bm
 I'll get with it just give it a little longer
                 G
 Don't speak for me
      A             Bm
 Yeah I'll be there soon
       G
 Honestly
       A                       F#                         Bm
 Every day I feel a little bit stronger than I was when I was
      A          G
 When I was with you
           G     Bm    Em
 Yeah it's true
           G     Bm    Em
 Yeah it's true


[Verse 2]
               Bm
 People try to box me in
A               D
 Telling me its sink or swim
G               Bm     A     D
 Maybe I should sink until I stand
G                   Bm
 Out here where the waters deep
A                  D
 I think I found a voice in me
G                    Bm    G       F#
 And someday we will walk upon dry land


[Chorus]
                 G
 Don't speak for me
          A                             Bm
 I'll get with it just give it a little longer
                 G
 Don't speak for me
      A             Bm
 Yeah I'll be there soon
       G
 Honestly
       A                       F#                         Bm
 Every day I feel a little bit stronger than I was when I was
      A          G
 When I was with you
           G     Bm    Em
 Yeah it's true
           G     Bm    Em
 Yeah it's true
           G     Bm    Em
 Yeah it's true


[Bridge]
Bm                 A
 I couldn't find myself in you
Em
 You led me the long way down
Bm                 A
 I couldn't find myself in you
Em
 You led me the long way down
Bm                 A
 I couldn't find myself in you
   Em
 I couldn't find myself, it's true

[Intro]
E 

[Verse 1]
   E
 I met up with an acrobat in Brooklyn or some place like that
                                                               C#m
 With life and taxis flying past, we tore that dance hall down
 E
 Pocket change and subway cars, our big ideas filled empty bars

 You might be from the moon or Mars
                                   C#m
 Either way, I'm never going home


[Pre-Chorus]
    E
 So let's hang an anchor from the sun
           E
 There's a million city lights, but


[Chorus]
        E
 You're number one
            B                C#m
 You're the reason I'm still up at dawn
         A
 Just to see your face
          E                     B
 We'll be going strong with the vampires, baby
 C#m             A           E N.C.
 We belong, we belong awake, swinging from the fire escape


[Verse 2]
       E
 I was drinking from the wishing well, some junkie metal head hotel
                                                   C#m
 When we boarded the carousel, the roof was caving in
 E
 On the stage, my ox blood friend was singing songs about the end
                                                                             C#m
 The bankers in the lion's den were dropping lines like beggars in the snow


[Pre-Chorus]
    E
 So let's hang an anchor from the sun
           E
 There's a million city lights, but


[Chorus]
        E
 You're number one
            B                C#m
 You're the reason I'm still up at dawn
         A
 Just to see your face
          E                     B
 We'll be going strong with the vampires, baby
 C#m             A           E
 We belong, we belong awake, swinging from the fire escape
E
 Swinging from the fire escape, swinging from the fire escape


[Bridge]
E
 Walking home, your hand in mine, tattoos on the river line 
     E
 The morning birds are taking flight
                                           C#m
 Either way, I thought that you should know


[Chorus]
           E
 You're my number one
            B                C#m
 You're the reason I'm still up at dawn
         A
 Just to see your face
          E                     B
 We'll be going strong with the vampires, baby
 C#m             A
 We belong, we belong awake
           E
 You're my number one
            B                C#m
 You're the reason I'm still up at dawn
         A
 Just to see your face
          E                     B
 We'll be going strong with the vampires, baby
 C#m             A           E
 We belong, we belong awake, swinging from the fire escapee

 Swinging from the fire escape
 E
 Swinging from the fire escape, swinging from the fire escape

 You know that you can't chase the stars underwater, water


[Verse 2]
         D            Em
 You can play all the notes
         C
 You can write all the words
     D            Em          C
 You headlined in all the big cities
              D              Em          C
 But when the spotlights are off and the crowds have gone home
     D        Em         C
 You could be going home too


[Chorus]
               C    G D    
 It's not your birthday
 Am         G          D                  
 This isn't Mardi Gras either
              C    G D
 Tomorrow's a work day
              Am         G            D
 You've got a life and a spaceship to fly
              C G D          Am        G             D
 You've got a woman    and a beautiful yellow-haired daughter
              C      G D
 Come back to earth, kid
                   Am              G          D
 You know that you can't chase the stars underwater, water


[Chorus]
                   C    G D
 No, it's not your birthday
               Am          G         D 
 You should be done waking up on the floor
              C      G D
 Come back to earth, kid
                Am           G      D
 Don't you know you're not a kid anymore?
               C    G D
 You married a good girl
                   Am        G             D 
 She gave you this beautiful yellow-haired daughter
              C      G D
 Come back to earth, kid
                   Am              G          D
 You know that you can't chase the stars underwater, water, water


[Outro]
C   G   D
Am  G   D
C   G   D
Am  G   D

                   C    G  D
 No, it's not your birthday
               Am   G D
 It's not your birthday
               C    G D
 It's not your birthday
          Am   G D
 It's not your day

C   G   D
Am  G   D
C   G   D
Am  G   D

    D             Em
 So blow out your candles
      G           N.C.
 It's better than letting them burn out
