C C Dm Dm Am Am F F

I thought that I was dreaming when you said you love me

The start of nothing
Dm Dm

I had no chance to prepare
Am Am F F

I couldn't see you coming
C C

The start of nothing new
Dm Dm

I could hate you now
Am Am F F

It's quite alright to hate me now
C C Dm Dm

When we both know that deep down
Am Am F F

The feeling deep down is good

If I could see the walls, I could see you faking
Am Am F F

If you could see my thoughts you would see your face is
C C Dm Dm Am Am

Safe in my rental like an army truck back then
Am Am F F

We didn't give a fuck back then
C C Dm Dm

I ain't a kid no more

Dm Dm Am Am F F

We'll never be those kids again
C C Dm Dm Am Am

We drived to Syd's, had the X6 back then

Back then

No matter what I did

My waves wouldn't dip back then

Everything sucked back then

We were friends

The feeling deep down is good

C C Dm Dm Am Am

In the halls of your hotel
Am Am F F

Arm around my shoulder so I could tell

How much I meant, meant it sincere back then

We had time to kill back then
C C Dm Dm

You ain't a kid no more
Dm Dm Am Am

We'll never be those kids again
Am Am C C Dm Dm

It's not the same, ivory's illegal
F F

Don't you remember?

I broke your heart last week

You'll probably feel better by the weekend

Still remember, had you going crazy
C C Dm Dm

Screaming my name
Am Am F F C C

The feeling deep down is good

And we started from nothing, oh

I could hate you now

It's quite alright to hate me now

When we both know that deep down

The feeling deep down is good

All the things I didn't mean to say

Dream all night

Drive all night

Dreaming, dreaming
