But I knew you dancin' in your Levi's

drunk under a streetlight I

I knew your hand under my sweatshirt

Baby kiss it better I

August slipped away into a moment in time

Playing hide-and-seek and
G chordG
Giving me your weekends I

I knew you
A chordA
Your heartbeat on the High Line

Once in twenty lifetimes I

Em chordEm A chordA
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan

Under someone's bed
A chordA
You put me on and said I was your favorite

To kiss in cars in downtown bars

Was all I needed

You drew stars around my scars
A chordA
But now I'm bleedin'
D chordD
Cause I knew you
A chordA
Steppin' on the last train
G chordG
Marked me like a bloodstain I

I knew you
A chordA
Tried to change the ending

Peter losin' Wendy I
D chordD
I knew you
A chordA G chordG
Leavin' like a father runnin' like water I
A chordA
When you are young they assume you know nothing

[Bridge]
D chordD
But I knew you'd linger like a tattoo kiss
A chordA
I knew you'd haunt all of my what-ifs
G chordG
The smell of smoke would hang around this long
A chordA
Cause I knew everything when I was young
D chordD
I knew I'd curse you for the longest time
A chordA
Chasin' shadows in the grocery line
G chordG
I knew you'd miss me once the thrill expired
A chordA
And you'd be standin' in my front porch light

D chordD
But I can see us lost in the memory

And you'd come back to me

And you'd come back to me
G chordG
And you'd come back to me
A chordA
And you'd come back

[Chorus 3]
Em chordEm A chordA
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
G chordG
Under someone's bed
A chordA
You put me on and said I was your favorite
