[Verse 1]
           F                
Living the good life full of goodbyes
C
My eyes are on the grey skies
       G
Saying I don't want to come home tonight 
              F
Yeah, and I'm high up, off what?
C
I don't even remember
       G
But my friend passed out in the Uber ride

[Pre-Chorus]
                 F               C
Oh, I'm from the city of the 9-1-5
                        G
Where all the girls are pretty
And they're down for the hype
                F
All my boys are with me
                 C
Going up for the night
        G
But who cares, who cares
                   F        C
'Cause this is our year

[Chorus]
                     G
So wake me up in the spring
                               F           C
While I'm high off my American dream
                            G
We don't always say what we mean
That's the lie of an American teen

[Verse 2]
F
Maybe the end is near
C
But I've been waiting all year
G
To get the hell up out of here
And throw away my fears
       F
I'm so faded (I'm so faded)
       C
Off of all the things that I've taken, and
G
Maybe I'm not really drunk
Maybe I'm really good at faking

[Pre-Chorus]
         F               C
From the city of the 9-1-5
                        G
Where all the girls are pretty
And they're down for the hype
                F
All my boys are with me
                 C
Going up for the night
        G
But who cares, who cares
                   F     C
'Cause this is our year

[Chorus]
                     G
So wake me up in the spring
                               F           C
While I'm high off my American dream
                            G
We don't always say what we mean
That's the lie of an American teen        F

[Bridge]
   C                          G
My youth is the foundation of me
                           F             C
Living life as an American teen (American teen)
         G

C                           G

                             F
While I'm high off my American (American dream)
    C                           G
And we don't always say what we mean

It's the lie of an American teen

My youth is the foundation of me
                           F
