Intro: G Dsus2 Am
G                       Dsus2               Am
I saw you looking for a light, face painted cigarette white.
G                              Dsus2
You asked the cleanest boy you found;
                    Am
You couldn't see me turned around.
C                                 G     Dsus2 Am                     C
His fingers stretched across your empty gaze, but I just can't escape.

G
As the red fades from your wrinkled dress,
C
A picture of the people you've impressed,
Em
Hangs on a wall around here;
C
Vision starts to crawl when I'm near.
G
And the evening waits,
C
While you get caught up to your own mistakes,
Em
Made up of different lines,
C
I wouldn't want to keep in my mind.

I wondered why you'd come around,
Remembering your little girl frown.
Your answers kept the crowd at bay,
With compliments unwilling to pay.
I have some things I'd like to say to you,
But they just can't be true.

As the red fades from your wrinkled dress,
A picture of the people you've impressed,
Hangs on a wall around here, vision starts to crawl when I'm near.
And the evening waits, while you get caught up to your own mistakes,
Made up of different lines, I wouldn't want to keep in my mind.

Guitar solo	G Dsus2 Am C G Dsus2 Am C

As the red fades from your wrinkled dress,
A picture of the people you've impressed,
Hangs on a wall around here, vision starts to crawl when I'm near.
And the evening waits, while you get caught up to your own mistakes,
Made up of different lines, I wouldn't want to keep in my mind.
(End with Em)
