[Verse 1]
G                   Em9
Cigarette smoke dances back in the window
    Cadd9         Em7         D
And I can see the haze on the dome light.
    G                     Em9
I`m conjuring ghosts on a forty-hour ride home.
    Cadd9                        Em7           D
And they keep asking me what I`m doing with my life,

[Interlude]
         Cadd9         D              Em7
While my cousins go to bed with their wives.
    Cadd9        D           A7sus4
I'm feeling like I've fallen behind.

[Verse 2]
         G
Well the highway won.
    Em9
I`m listening to traffic reports,
Cadd9              Em7       D
One on one, coming quietly undone.
      G            Em9
I was born to run away from anything good
     Cadd9
An escape artist`s son
                  Em7            D
With sun-drenched pavement in my blood.

[Interlude]
    Cadd9              D         Em7
The first thing that I do when I walk in
   Cadd9      D            A7sus4
Is plan a way out for when shit gets bad

[Chorus]
    E         D'      C   G`           E     
And I`ve been looking for tears in the screen door.
 D`           C
(tears in the screen door)
E         D`      C     G`      E
I`ve been waiting for another disaster.
  D`       C
(another disaster)
G - Em9 - Cadd9 - Em7 - D

[Verse 3]
    G                Em9
I`m terrified like a kid in the sixties,
Cadd9              Em7             D
Staring at the sky waiting for the bomb to fall.
     G                    Em9
It`s all a lie, what they say about stability.
   Cadd9
It scares me sometimes,
    Em7         D         A7sus4
The emptiness I see in my eyes.

[Interlude]
        Em9                   Cadd9             D
All the kid`s names I’ve ever liked are tied to tragedy
A7sus4                    Em9                    Cadd9       D
      And I don’t want my children growing up to be anything like me.

[Chorus]
Em7       D       Cadd9
I`ve been looking for 
G            Em7
Tears in the screen door.
 D            Cadd9
(tears in the screen door)
Em7       D       Cadd9
I`ve been waiting for 
 G        Em7   
Another disaster
  D        Cadd9
(another disaster)
    Em7           Cadd9        D
But I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
Em7           Cadd9        G
I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
Cadd9 - G - D

[Bridge]
         Em7
I keep a flashlight
      Cadd9              G            D
And a small knife in the corner of my bed stand.
         Em7                Cadd9
I keep a flashlight and the train times,
                 G
But you wouldn’t understand.
              D
How could you understand?
      Em7               Cadd9
Jesus Christ. I`m twentysix.
        G                  Cadd9
All the people I graduated with
         Em7            Cadd9
All have kids, all have wives,
         G                       Cadd9
All have people who care if they come home at night.
      Em7           D
Jesus Christ, did I fuck up?

[Chorus]
Em7       D       Cadd9
I`ve been looking for 
G            Em7
Tears in the screen door.
 D            Cadd9
(tears in the screen door)
Em7       D       Cadd9
I`ve been waiting for 
 G        Em7   
Another disaster
  D        Cadd9
(another disaster)
    Em7           Cadd9        D
But I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
Em7           Cadd9        G
I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
Em7           D            G
I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
