Em Em, A A, G G, A A

Em Em A A
Vintage tee brand new phone
G G
High heels on cobblestones
A A
When you are young they assume you know nothing
Em Em A A G G
Sequined smile black lipstick sensual politics
A A
When you are young they assume you know nothing

[Pre-Chorus]
D D A A
But I knew you dancin' in your Levi's
G G
drunk under a streetlight I
A A
I knew your hand under my sweatshirt

Baby kiss it better I

D D
But I can see us lost in the memory
G G Em Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
A A
'Cause it was never mine
D D
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
G G Em Em
August slipped away like a bottle of wine
A A
'Cause you were never mine


[Verse 2]
Em Em A A
A A friend to all is a friend to none
G G
Chase two girls lose the one
A A
When you are young they assume you know nothing

[Pre-Chorus]
D D
But I knew you
A A
Playing hide-and-seek and
G G
Giving me your weekends I

I knew you
A A
Your heartbeat on the High Line

Once in twenty lifetimes I

Em Em A A
And when I felt like I was an old cardigan
G G
Under someone's bed
A A
You put me on and said I was your favorite

D D
But I can see us lost in the memory
G G Em Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
A A
'Cause it was never mine
D D
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
G G Em Em
August slipped away like a bottle of wine
A A
'Cause you were never mine

[Break]
G G Bm Bm
D D A A

[Verse 3]
Em Em
To kiss in cars in downtown bars
A A
Was all I needed
G G
You drew stars around my scars
A A
But now I'm bleedin'
D D
Cause I knew you
A A
Steppin' on the last train
G G
Marked me like a bloodstain I

I knew you
A A
Tried to change the ending

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

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

D D
But I can see us lost in the memory
G G Em Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
A A
'Cause it was never mine
D D
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
G G Em Em
August slipped away like a bottle of wine
A A
'Cause you were never mine

Em Em
And you'd come back to me
A A
And you'd come back to me
G G
And you'd come back to me
A A
And you'd come back

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