[Verse 1]

Cadd9            G    Cadd9            G
   Well you live out, where the street ends
     Cadd9     G             D           Cadd9
In a basement apartment with one of your friends
        Cadd9         G            Cadd9         G
And the tap drips all night, water torturing the sink
    Cadd9      G                     D  Cadd9        
The furnace is burning but it's still cold I think

Cadd9  G

D  Cadd9


[Verse 2]

Cadd9           G                Cadd9      G
I can smell the bleach that they use in the hall
       Cadd9           G           D   Cadd9
But it can't clean the dirt off of me
             Cadd9     G     Cadd9         G 
It's seeping under the door, in across the floor
     Cadd9       G
It's starting to hurt


[Chorus 1]

D     Cadd9  Cadd9  G 
Every time I br-----eathe
D     Cadd9               Cadd9  G     
      Every time I try to l------eave
D     Cadd9              Cadd9  G     
            Every time I br-----eathe
D     Cadd9     


[Verse 3]

        Cadd9   G              Cadd9       G
Now the toaster sticks and the empties are piled
  Cadd9               G               D    Cadd9  
I haven't been up the stairs in awhile now
  Cadd9          G                 Cadd9           G  
I gotta wash the sheets on my bed, gotta watch the things that go unsaid
Cadd9      G                  D  Cadd9  G
God I wish we'd leave it at th------------is


[Chorus 2]

D     Cadd9  Cadd9  G 
Every time I br-----eathe
D     Cadd9               Cadd9  G     
      Every time I try to l------eave
D     Cadd9              Cadd9  G     
            Every time I br-----eathe
D     Cadd9     


[Bridge]

D                                                  C/G
  And every evening, you open the door, you come down
          D                                            C/G
  There's nothing like watching TV all night on the ground
      D                       C/G
  And no one is watching me slide
D                              C/G
  Below street level, barely alive

[Verse 4]

    Cadd9   G    Cadd9            G
Now we live out, where the street ends
     Cadd9     G             D        Cadd9
In a basement apartment just like our friends
          Cadd9             G                  Cadd9            G
We always said that we were different, but you know now that we weren't
               Cadd9            G           D        Cadd9
'Cause there's holes in all the bottles and my lungs hurt
Cadd9   G


[Chorus 3]

D     Cadd9  Cadd9  G 
Every time I br-----eathe
D     Cadd9               Cadd9  G     
      Every time I try to l------eave
D     Cadd9              Cadd9  G     
            Every time I br-----eathe
D     Cadd9
