G                       Em
I went down the the gas station 
Asus2
for no particular reason,
G                            Em
heard the screams from the high school,
Asus 2
it's football season.

Em   C   
Em   C

G                      Em
empty lot the station faces,
Asus2
will probably be there forever.
G                     Em
I climbed over the four foot fence, 
Asus2
I was trying to sever the tether.

             D    Am
moon in the sky, 
Em
cold as a stone
D                        Am
spend each night in your arms,
C
always wake up alone.

G   Em   Asus2
G   Em   Asus2

G                  Em
I lay down in the weeds,
Asus2
it was a real cold night.
G                               Em
I was happy until the overnight attendant
Asus2
switched on the floodlight.

Em   C   
Em   C

G                                  Em
walking home I was talking to you under my breath,
Asus2
saying things I would never say directly.
G                        Em
I heard a siren on the highway up ahead.
Asus2
kinda wish they'd come and get me

              D         Am
frost on the sidewalk,
Em
white as a bone
D                       Am
tried to get close to you again,
C
always wake up alone.

Bm                        C
and as i was crossing our doorstep,
C                         G
i hesitated just a moment there.
Bm                  C
remembered the day we moved into our small house
C                               Am
'til the vision got to vivid to bear.

G   Em   Asus2
G   Em   Asus2

G                Em
you were almost asleep,
Asus2
halfway undressed
G                Em
i lay right down next to you
Asus2
held your head against my chest.

Em   C   
Em   C

G                          Em
and a guy with any kind of courage
Asus2
would maybe stop to think the matter through
G                          Em
maybe hold you still and raise the question,
Asus2
instead of blindly holding on to you.

                     D     Am
but we crank up the heat
Em
and you giggle and moan,
D                       Am
spend all night in the company of ghosts,
C
always wake up alone

G   Em   Asus2  etc.
