  Ab                     Absus4  Ab           
Remember the way that we used to get around, 
Ab                   Absus4    Ab         
all of the people we wanted to be?
Ab                       Absus4    Ab                   
All of the masks that we wore kept breaking down,
Ab                Absus4   Ab                          
running away from our history.

How does it feel to be on your own again?
Ab                        Absus4   Ab
Hitting the ground on your own two feet
Ab                         Absus4  Ab          
Gotta believe that there's nothing better than
Ab                Absus4     Ab
nowhere to go and nothing to be.
