[VERSE 1:]
         E            Emaj7
All the boys voices cracking
Oh, the moaning half tones
A2              E      Emaj7        Bsus/G#   A2
Come summertime, we're all the same age       here
         E             Emaj7
All the tension and the terror
            Bsus/G#              A2
Thin-limbed gorgeous green eyes smiling
    E   Emaj7 Bsus/G#     A2
And I'm going straight to hell

Bsus    Bsus/A    Bsus/G#      Bsus/A   Bsus Bsus/A        Bsus/G#  Bsus/A
All the possibility        and promise just weighs on me so heav----ily
[ Tab from: ]
And I try but I'm not convincing
Your lips, they pout and twist and
F#m                         A         B
I die trying just to keep myself from kissing you
You take in everything with 
a subtlety I envy
F#m                          A       B
It's somehow all I need just keep me guessing please

E  Emaj7  Bsus/G#  A2 

         E            Emaj7             Bsus/G#        A2
Darling, all of these awkward jumpstart-stalling conversations
          E       Emaj7   Bsus/G#   A2
Mean much more to me than any-------thing
         E              Emaj7
It comes down to me and you
            Bsus/G#             A2
And whether we're supposed to or not, 
         E          Emaj7    Bsus/G#    A2
we still will we're so much  better     off than them



A look, A laugh, A smile, A second 
passes by and I regret it
B          A      B
words just aren't right
Sometimes I just can't explain
All the ways you devastate me
B      A     B
Always on my mind
