Gadd9  
Don't have smokes and I don't have matches
C/G
This, the picture of me, caught in your eyelashes
Em                         
I have no home that I know, 
           D       C       Gadd9
would you like to take me in.

Gadd9     
There's a feeling you get when you think it's too much it's 
C/G
Just a feeling you get living in you're clutches
Em*                                  
I'm sorry for the misinterpretation, 
    G       C         Gadd9
my fear is more than    hestitation

         Em               Bm            C 
And I am sorry, about the dress and the wine
        Bm       C            Gadd9
for the suit and tie I can't return.
                    Em                Bm                C 
Is this because I'm lazy that I don't want to work this hard
              Bm              C            Gadd9
It's just I'm scared of being bored of you.

       Em              Em*             D*     C*
When I die Caleb, what happens to the air I breathe
       Em*          D*                C*             
what happens to my hopes, what will happen to my ... 
Gadd9                D     C***
dreams.  Duh duh da da

(*** C barre chord on the 3rd fret enables high B note with your pinky x35557)

Gadd9
Your body is a strange machine
C/G
You get angry you get mean
Em*
Sometimes I think that I'd like to see you 
  D       C       Gadd9
choke and fight to breath


         Em               Bm             C
And I am sorry, about the cake and the champagne
        Bm                C             G
to the guests to whom we explained this all.
          Em                        Bm             C
It's just because I'm worried that everything stops here
        Bm                C            G
Our lives and hearts, then tears that fall.


       Em              Em*             D*     C*
When I die Caleb, what happens to the air I breathe
       Em*          D*                C*
what happens to my hopes, what will happen to my ...
Gadd9                D     C
dreams.  Duh duh da da


       Em              Em*             D*     C*
When I die Caleb, what happens to the air I breathe
       Em*            D*                C
what happens to the times I said I was sorry

       Em*          D*                C*           
what happens to my hopes, what will happen to my dreams.
       Em*          D*          
what happens to the years I've lived
       C                          G
What happens to your memories of me.
