Song: Checkmarks Acoustic
Artist: The Academy Is

Saw a video of them playing this on youtube. Did this mostly by ear, the video helped 
Pretty sure these are the right chords.

Intro:
Am F G
Am C G

Am           F  G
So there you are,
Am       C G
and here I stand
Am             F
As far as I remember
      G          AM  F  G
you weren't half bad.
Am          C  G
Your bedroom behavior
Am                  F             G
was never more then checkmarks on bedposts.
Am      C         G          AM  F G
For I remember we never had.

[Pre-Chorus]

Am
You get me out of the rain,
C          G
you get me out of my clothes.
Am
You hope I don't make a sound,
C          G
you hope that nobody knows.
Am
You get me out of the rain,
C          G
you get me out of my clothes.
Am
You hope I don't make a sound,
F
you hope that no one...

[Chorus:]
Am
So suck your so called pity down.
G               F
Hey, that's not so bad, is it?
Am
So take your cold, cold heart and drown
G               F
and don't forget to take deep breaths.
Am
So suck your so called pity down.
G               F
Hey, that's not so bad, is it?
Am
So take your cold, cold heart and drown
G               F
and don't forget to take deep breaths.

Am           F  G
So don't explain
Am            C                    G
cause I know exactly what your're going to say.
Am            F        G
Big words, recycled phrases, and the
Am                     C        G
bittersweet taste of other boys on your lips.
Am                        F                  G
So now just sit here and talk about how you wanted it all.'
Am                        C                  G
So now just sit here and talk about how you wanted it all.

[Prechorus]

[Chorus]
Am
Do you miss looking up from the floor
       C
at my face on a stage in a crowded room?
      G
Well it's not the same.
F
I bet you're still a sucker for those famous faces.
Am
Downtown looking down, down, looking over the crowd
C
I hope you're out there, look at me now.
G
Well it's not the same.
F
Just look at how we've changed.

[Chorus]
