VERSE

Bm            A          Em         D
I caught you watching me under the light 
               Bm     A     Em    D
Can I be your line? 
Bm            A       Em          D
They say it’s easy to leave you behind

I don’t wanna try

Come, come and take that test

Hold courage to your chest 
Bm           A
Don’t wanna wait for you 
Em           D
Don’t wanna have to lose 
Bm          A
All that I compromised
Em        D
To feel another high

I've got to keep it down tonight

Don’t you remember how I used to like

Being on the line? 
Bm             A             Em            D
I dreamed you dreamed of me calling out my name
