[Intro]
 
Bb      F      Dm     C      Csus4 C               Bb
 
 
[Verse 1]
 
Bb      F      Dm             C
Night falls and towns become circuit boards
        Bb              C              Dm
We can beat the sun as long as we keep moving
Bb       F     Dm                C
From the air, stadium lights stand out like flares
    C                   Csus4 C                    Bb
And all I know is that you're sat here right next to me
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
Bb         F   Dm                 C
We rarely see warning signs in the air we breathe
Bb              C              Dm
Right now I feel each and every fragment
Bb         C                Dm                 C
This paper trail leads right back to you
Bb                    C         Dm
You say you need me to step outside
 
 
[Chorus]
 
Dm            F         Bb
You spent the evening unpacking books from boxes
     C
You passed me up so as not to break a promise
Dm         F           Bb
Scattered polaroids and sprinkled words around your collar
        C
In the long run, said you knew that this would happen
 
 
[Verse 3]
 
Bb            F                   Dm               C
Well this is something new but it turns out it was borrowed too
C              Csus4    C        Bb
Why does every let down have to be so thin?
Bb      F            Dm              C
Rain explodes at the moment that the cab door closed
Bb                  C            Dm
I feel the weight upon your kiss ambiguous
 
 
[Bridge 1]
 
Bb            C       Dm             C
You have to leave, I appreciate that
Bb                    C            Dm
But I hate when conversation slips out of our grasp
 
 
[Chorus]
 
Dm            F                Bb
You spent the evening unpacking books from boxes
     C
You passed me up so as not to break a promise
Dm         F           Bb
Scattered polaroids and sprinkled words around your collar
        C
In the long run, said you knew that this would happen
 
 
[Bridge 2]
 
Bm            G
Two bodies in motion
           A
This is a matter of fact, it wasn't built to last    (x2)
 
 
[Chorus]
 
Dm            F                Bb
You spent the evening unpacking books from boxes
     C
You passed me up so as not to break a promise
Dm         F           Bb
Scattered polaroids and sprinkled words around your collar
        C
In the long run, said you knew that this would happen
 
 
[Outro]
 
Dm            F              Bb
The pounding rain continued it's bleak fall
    C
And we decided just to write after all, after all
 
Bb      F      Dm     C      Csus4 C               Bb
 
Bb            F       Dm                C
The pounding rain continued it's bleak fall
    Bb          C            Dm
And we decided just to write after all
