[Verse 1]
D5
It's dusk as all the shadows fall
D5                  Gsus2
The sun is laid to rest
Gsus2              D5   
At night the city comes to life
       A7sus4           Gadd9
As the light dies in the west

[Verse 2]
D5
Here we stand as some local band
D5                      Gsus2
Sets circles 'round the clock
Gsus2                       D5 
Smoke so thick you need a lighthouse
    A7sus4               Gadd9
So loud I can't hear myself talk

[Verse 3]
D5
Someone whispered in my ear
D5                      Gsus2
"It's not like it was before"
Gsus2                       D5
I don't know what happened here
 A7sus4               Gadd9
I guess we just got bored

[Verse 4]
D5
The good old days
D5   Gsus2    D5  D5                           A7sus4 
Well I   suppose, I'm glad they're behind us now
Bm                          Gadd9
The only thing worse than growing up
D5            A7sus4      D5 
Is never quite learning how

[Verse 5]
D5
Late at night 
D5   Gsus2       D5     D5                A7sus4 
we   toss and we turn  lay awake 'til dawn
Bm                       Gadd9
We close our eyes as the sun comes up 
D5       A7sus4      D5 
we're gone

We close our eyes as the sun comes up 
D5       A7sus4      D5 
we're gone
