[Intro]

Cadd9 D Em7 D
Cadd9 D Em7 D

[Verse 1]

Cadd9 D Em7 D
Hey, I was doing just fine before I met you
Cadd9 D Em7 D
I drank too much and that’s an issue but I’m okay
Cadd9 D Em7 D
Hey, you tell your friends it was nice to meet them
Cadd9 D Em7 D
But I hope I never see them again

[Pre-Chorus]

Cadd9 D
I know it breaks your heart
Em7 D
Moved to the city in a broke down car and
Cadd9 D
Four years, no calls
Em7 D
Now you’re looking pretty in a hotel bar and
Cadd9 D Em7 D
I can’t stop
Cadd9 D Em7 D
No, I can’t stop

[Chorus]

Cadd9 D Em7 D
So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
Cadd9 D
That I know you can’t afford
Em7 D
Bite that tattoo on your shoulder
Cadd9 D
Pull the sheets right off the corner
Em7 D
Of the mattress that you stole
Cadd9 D
From your roommate back in Boulder
Em7 D
We ain’t ever getting older

[Post-Chorus]

Cadd9 D Em7 D
Cadd9 D Em7 D
We ain’t ever getting older
Cadd9 D Em7 D
Cadd9 D Em7 D
We ain’t ever getting older

Cadd9 D Em7 D
You, look as the good as the day as I met you
Cadd9 D Em7 D
I forget just why I left you, I was insane
Cadd9 D Em7 D
Stay, and play that Blink-182 song
Cadd9 D Em7 D
That we beat to death in Tuscon, okay

[Pre-Chorus]

Cadd9 D
I know it breaks your heart
Em7 D
Moved to the city in a broke down car and
Cadd9 D
Four years, no calls
Em7 D
Now I’m looking pretty in a hotel bar and
Cadd9 D Em7 D
I can’t stop
Cadd9 D Em7 D
No, I can’t stop

[Chorus]

Cadd9 D Em7 D
So baby pull me closer in the backseat of your Rover
Cadd9 D
That I know you can’t afford

Pull the sheets right off the corner
Em7 D
Of the mattress that you stole
Cadd9 D
From your roommate back in Boulder
