B---------x----------x---------x---------|
G---------x----------x---------x---------|
D---------x----------x---------x---------|
A---------x----------x---5--5--x---3--3--|
E---0--0--x----3--3--x---------x---------|

Intro
G  Em  D  C     G  Em  D C

G                    Em
I remember when the days were long
        D                               C
and the nights when the living room was on the lawn.
G                        Em
Constant quarreling the childish fits
         D                      C
and our clothes in a pile on the ottoman.
G                    Em
All the slander and double speak
            D                          C
Were only foolish attempts to show you did not mean,
G                 Em
Anything but the blatant proof
          D                         C
Was your lips touching mine in the photobooth.

Chorus 1

Am            C           Em         D           C
And as the summers ending the cold air rush your hard heart away.
Am           C
You were so condescending,
(1st Chorus riff)
And this is all that's left
(1st Chorus riff)
Scraping paper to document.
e---------x----------|
B---------x----------|
G---------x----------|
D---------x----------|
A---------x----------|
E---0--0--x----3--3--|         D
I've packed a change of clothes and it's time to move on.

G  Em  D  C     G  Em  D  C

G                    Em
Cup your mouth to compress the sound,
        D                            C
Skinny dipping with the kids from a nearby town.
G                       Em
And everything that I said was true
         D                        C
As the flashes blinded us in the photobooth.
G                            Em
Well I lost track when those words were said,
               D                      C
You took the wheel and you steered us into my bed,
G                      Em
And soon we woke and I walked you home
            D                         C
And it was pretty clear that is was hardly love.

Chorus 2

Am            C           Em          D          C
And as the summers ending the cold air rush your hard heart away.
Am            C
You were so condescending,
(1st Chorus riff)
And this is all that's left
(1st Chorus riff)
Scraping paper to document.

Am            C                Em         D              C
And as the summers ending the cold air rush your hard heart away.
Am            C           Em        D           C
You were so condescending as the alcohol drained the days.
Am            C                Em         D              C
And as the summers ending the cold air rush your hard heart away.
Am            C
You were so condescending,
(Final Chorus riff)
And this is all that's left,
(Final Chorus riff)
The empty bottles spent cigarettes so pack a change of clothes
(Final Chorus riff)    Em
Cause its time to move on.
