Verse: (Guitar 1 just plays E-D,
Guitar 2 doubles it, then picks through Dmaj7sus2 at the end)
(Dmaj7sus2 = xx0220)

E           D             Dmaj7sus2
Children in bloom cooking in the sun
waiting for a room of our own
leave my sister alone
she don't deserve this
she is a flower and I am a flower and
we are all alone

Chorus: Guitar 1 plays intro riff
Bm          A         Esus4
I gotta get out on my own
I gotta get up from this waiting at home
I gotta get out of this sunlight
It's melting my bones
I gotta get up from this slumber and get myself home

All these wasted dreams
waiting for the sun to open up my heart to anyone
bring me some rain
because i'm dying and i can't get this damn thing closed again

I gotta get out on my own
I gotta get up from this waiting at home
I gotta get out of this sunlight
It's melting my bones
I gotta get up from this slumber and get myself home

Solo: (Guitar 1 plays E D, guitar 2 plays solo)

Bass interlude, both guitars tacet eight measures
