-Intro
C C Dm Dm Am Am (x2)


-Verse

C C Dm Dm Am Am
Smeared black ink
C C Dm Dm Am Am
your palms are sweaty and i'm barely listening
C C Dm Dm Am Am
to last demands
C C Dm Dm Am Am
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering what's buried underneath


-Interlude

F F C C G G
Where I am...


-Verse

C C Dm Dm Am Am
I'll wear my badge...
C C Dm Dm Am Am
a vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest
C C Dm Dm Am Am
That tells your new friends
C C Dm Dm Am Am
i am a visitor here, I am not permanent
C C Dm Dm Am Am
And the only thing
C C Dm Dm Am Am
keeping me dry is


-Chorus

F F C C G G
You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
F F C C G G
A A stranger with your door key explaining that i am just visiting
F F C C G G
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving
F F C C G G
Why I was the one worth leaving


-Bridge

C C C C Dm Dm Dm Dm

G G G G Am Am Am Am
D D.C. sleeps alone tonight

C C Dm Dm Am Am Am Am (x8)


-Chorus

F F C C G G
You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
F F C C G G
A A stranger with your door key explaining that i am just visiting
F F C C G G
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving
F F C C G G
Why I was the one worth leaving
F F C C G G Am Am
The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
F F C C G G Am Am
And send the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
F F C C G G Am Am
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving
F F C C G G (x3)
Why I was the one worth leaving


-Outro

F F C C G G G G (x2)
