F#

-Verse-

F#                       
Someday they're going to write about us,
       C#                         
living here in the shadow of this gathering dust.
       D#m                B
As the waves build up and drown the light,
            F#                          C#
While we're hanging from buildings on a Saturday night.

        F#
And the words she said...I could barely hear 
         C#
over the blare of the speakers and the smell of beer,
           D#m              B
As she got up to speak, she lifted her dress.
    F#                       C#
I remember her face but I forget the rest.

-Chorus-

        B           F#
Here in California, I was
                  C#                  D#m
Just a name and a number, a face in a tumbler.
        B           F#
Here in California, we're all
             C#                             D#m
stuck in the same scene, all nightmares and daydreams
   D#m  C#   B    C#   F#
in Ca - li - fo - or - nia.

-Verse-

    F#               
She said, "I got money, but I got no friends,"
      C#
as we drove through the valley in her daddy's Benz.
                 D#m                     B
She said, "These pills wear off, but the pain don't end.
        F#                         C#
I never thought it would matter so much to pretend."

        F#
And the thing about her that haunts me still
       C#
as her hands fell down to the steering wheel,
      D#m                   B
And a shock of light fell across her face,
                 F#                C#
she said there's only two ways out of this place.

-Chorus-

        B           F#
Here in California, I was
                  C#                  D#m
Just a name and a number, a face on a tumblr.
        B           F#
Here in California, we're all
             C#                             D#m
stuck in the same scene, all nightmares and daydreams
   D#m  C#   B    C#   F#
in Ca - li - fo - or - nia.

-Bridge-

D#m             F#
Oh, I hope it's clear.
           D#m                             F#
There's no room for us anymore in the atmosphere,
    B                C#              B             C#
but darling I always liked the desperation in your eyes,
            D#m          C#          B         C#      F#
The way you dance in the glow of the Hollywood freeway lights.

-Verse-

F#
Someday they're gonna forget about us
          C#
and we'll wonder if we were ever good enough.
   D#m                       B
It hit me last night in this song I heard.
    F#                        C#
I remember the feeling but forget all the words.

-Chorus-

        B           F#
Here in California, I was
                  C#                  D#m
just a name and a number, a face on a tumblr.
        B           F#m
Here in California, we're all
             C#                             D#m
stuck in the same scene, all nightmares and daydreams
   D#m  C#   B    C#   F#
in Ca - li - fo - or - nia.
   D#m  C#   B    C#   F#
In Ca - li - fo - or - nia.
