================

C              G
Allie woke up 8AM
D/F#m
Graduation day.
Cadd9
Got into a car,
G*                 Dsus2
And crashed along the way.

C                    G
When we arrived late to the wake,
Dsus2
Stole the urn while they looked away,
Cadd9
And drove to the beach
          G*                 D/F#m
'Cause I knew you'd want it that way.

Am                           Am7
And you were standing on the hood of the car
C                      D/F#m
Singing out loud when the sun came up.

*CHORUS:*
      C                    G
And I know I wasn't right,
                Dsus2
But it felt so good.
Cadd9                        G*
And your mother didn't mind,
                    D/F#m
Like I thought she would.
         C            G
And that REM song was playing 
       D
In my mind.
     Am                   Am7    C
And three and a half minutes
D
Felt like a lifetime...
                     C     G    D/F#m
It felt like a lifetime


*BRIDGE*         
                   C     G     D/F#m
And you move like water (yeah...)
                Cadd9    G*      Dsus2
I could drown in you.  
               C          G      D/F#m
And I fell so deep once, (yeah...)
                   Cadd9    G*     Dsus2
Till you pulled me throoough (ohh ohh...)
  Dsus2       
You would tell me
Am                    Am7        
"No one is allowed to be so proud
C                               D/F#m
They never reach out when they're giving up."
       C                  G            
And I know I wasn't right,
                Dsus2
But it felt so good.
         Cadd9               G*
And your mother didn't mind,
                   D/F#m
Like I thought she would.
         C             G
And that REM song was playing
Dsus2
In my mind.
Am                     Am7    C
And three and a half minutes
D
Felt like a lifetime...


C         G             D/F#m
Are you sitting in the lights?
                Cadd9          G*
Or combing your hair again,
               Dsus2
And talking in rhymes?
Cadd9    G*           Dsus2 D/F#m
Are you sitting in the liiiights?

(softly...)
C                G       
When I got home, heard the phone,
         D
Your parents had arrived.
C   
And your dad set his jaw
G                        D
Your mom just smiled and sighed.
(getting louder...)
C                        G
But they left soon and I went to my room.
D/F#m
Played that disc that you'd given me,
       Cadd9        G*
And I shut my eyes
                     Dsus2
Swear I could hear the sea...

Am                           Am7
When we were standing on the hood of your car
C                          D
Singing out loud when the sun came up.
     
*CHORUS*
       C                G
And I know I wasn't right,
                Dsus2
But it felt so good.
       Cadd9                G*
And your mother didn't mind,
                   D/F#m
Like I thought she would.
          C              G            D
And that REM song was playing in my mind.
Am                    Am7        C
And three and a half minutes,
Dsus2       Am7        C
Three and a half minutes,
D            G
Felt like a lifetime.
