Capo: 2nd fret

[Intro]
Am      Am      Am      Am      Am      Am

[Verse 1]
 
Am
Hey
Am              C
I retraced my   steps
C               Em              Em
I dusted my     memory for      fingerprints
Am
Your haunted head
Am              C
Is nowhere in   sight
C               Em
Yeah we were on a       roll
Em
Unstoppable now
Am              Am
Unexaminted like a      flyover town
Csus4           Csus4   C
A siren describing a strangers house
Em              Em
While we trophy around
Am
And light ourselves up
Am                              C
Cause we need to remember about as
                                C
much as my drink needs an       orange umbrella
Em                      Em
baby this kind of       stuff
                        F
Don't happen to         smart kids like us
 
[Chorus]
G       Am      F       C
Tell me how was I supposed to know
Dm      Am      Fsus2   C
I'd be the one who would let you
Gsus4   Am      C       Am
go,     now     I stumble out of
C                       G       F               C       C
Yeah I stumble round a room that don't have walls anymore
 
C       Csus4   Gsus4   Gsus4

[Verse 2]
 
Am
Hey
Am              C
I didn't feel a thing
C               Em
Call it a       calling
Em                      Am
My speciality Come the  night
Am              C               C
Well there's no need to         starT
Em
Wrapping my rattled head
                Em
Around your absent heart now
Am              Am
Volunteers      awake in a dream
Csus4                           Csus4
With transplant scars up and    down your sleeves and
Em                      Em
squeaky minds to        feed
Am                              Am
Before the shock of finding that nothing profound comes from
C                       C
all the magnificent      shit you talk about
Em              Em
Babe when that  one wears off
                        F
You're gonna need a whole new shock
 
[Chorus]
G       Am      F       C
Tell me how was I supposed to know
Dm      Am      Fsus2   C
I'd be the one who would let you
Gsus4   Am      C       Am
go, now I stumble out of
C                       G       F               C       C
Yeah I stumble round a room that don't have walls anymore
G                       F
A room that don't have a door anymore
G                       F
In circles running my hand along the wall
        Am      F       C
Tell me how was I supposed to know
Dm7     Am      Fsus2   C
I'd be the one who would let you
Gsus4   Am      C       Am
go, now I stumble out of
C                       G       F               C       C

Hey
I retraced my steps
I dusted my memory for fingerprints
Your haunted head
Is nowhere in sight
Yeah, we were on a roll
Unstoppable now
Unexamined like a flyover town
A siren describing a stranger’s house
While we trophy around
And light ourselves up
‘Cause we need to remember about as much as my drink needs an orange umbrella
Baby, this kind of stuff don’t happen to smart kids like us

[Chorus]
Tell me, how was I supposed to know
I’d be the one who let you go?
Now
I stumble out of
Yeah, I stumble ‘round a room that don’t have walls anymore

[Verse 2]
Hey
I didn’t feel a thing
Call it a calling
My specialty
Come the night
Well, there’s no need to start
Wrapping my rattled head ‘round your absent heart
Now, volunteers awake in a dream
With transplant scars up and down your sleeves
And squeaky minds to feed
Before the shock of finding that nothing profound
Comes from all the magnificent shit you talk about
Babe, when that one wears off
You’re gonna need a whole new shock

[Chorus]
Tell me how was I supposed to know
I’d be the one who let you go?
Now
Yeah, I stumble out of
Yeah, I stumble ‘round a room that don’t have walls anymore
A room that don’t have a door anymore
In circles, running my hands along the wall
Tell me how was I supposed to know
I’d be the one who let you go?
Oh, now
I stumble out of
Yeah, I stumble ‘round a room that don’t have walls anymore...

(Doo doo doo doo doo)
