Standard (EADGBE)


Repeat four times then into the chords

or continue throughout verses

Step out the front door like a ghost

into the fog where no-one notices

the contrast of white on white.

And in in between the moon and you

angels get a better view

of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.

I walk in the air between the rain

through myself and back again.

Where? I don't know.

Maria says she's dying.

Through the door I hear her crying?

Why? I don't know

Round here we always stand up straight

Round here, something radiates.

Maria came from nashville with a suitcase in her hand

She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like elvis

She walks along the edge where the ocean meets the land

just like she's walking on a wire in the circus

She parks her car outside of my house

takes her clothes off,

She say's she's close to understanding Jesus

She knows she's more than just a little misunderstood

She has trouble acting normal when shes nervous

Round here we're carving out our names

Round here we all look the same

Round here we talk just like lions

But we sacarifice like lambs

Round here she's slipping through my hands

Sleeping children better run like the wind

Out of the lightning dream

Mama's little baby better get herself in

Out of the lightning

She says, "It's only in my head."

She says, "shh...I know it's only in my head."

But the girl on the street by the parking lot

says:"Man, you should try to Take a shot

Can't you see my walls are crumbling?"

Then she looks up at the building

Say's she's thinking of jumping

She says she's tired of life;

She must be tired of something.

Round here she's always on my mind

Round here I got lots of time

Round here we're never sent to bed early

Man, nobody makes us wait

round here we stay up very, very, very, very late.

I can't see nothin', nothin'

Around here

You catch me if i'm falling,

You catch me if i'm falling,

Will you catch me cause i'm falling down on you

I said i'm under the gun

around here

Oh, man I said i'm under the gun

Around here

And I can't see nothin',nothin'

Round here.
