================

C G
Allie woke up 8AM
D/F#m
Graduation day.
Cadd9
Got into a car,
G* Dsus2
And crashed along the way.

C G
When we arrived late to the wake,
Dsus2
Stole the urn while they looked away,
Cadd9
And drove to the beach
G* D/F#m
'Cause I knew you'd want it that way.

Am Am7
And you were standing on the hood of the car
C D/F#m
Singing out loud when the sun came up.

*CHORUS:*
C G
And I know I wasn't right,
Dsus2
But it felt so good.
Cadd9 G*
And your mother didn't mind,
D/F#m
Like I thought she would.
C G
And that REM song was playing
D
In my mind.
Am Am7 C
And three and a half minutes
D
Felt like a lifetime...
C G D/F#m
It felt like a lifetime


*BRIDGE*
C G D/F#m
And you move like water (yeah...)
Cadd9 G* Dsus2
I could drown in you.
C G D/F#m
And I fell so deep once, (yeah...)
Cadd9 G* Dsus2
Till you pulled me throoough (ohh ohh...)
Dsus2
You would tell me
Am Am7
"No one is allowed to be so proud
C D/F#m
They never reach out when they're giving up."
C G
And I know I wasn't right,
Dsus2
But it felt so good.
Cadd9 G*
And your mother didn't mind,
D/F#m
Like I thought she would.
C G
And that REM song was playing
Dsus2
In my mind.
Am Am7 C
And three and a half minutes
D
Felt like a lifetime...


C G D/F#m
Are you sitting in the lights?
Cadd9 G*
Or combing your hair again,
Dsus2
And talking in rhymes?
Cadd9 G* Dsus2 D/F#m
Are you sitting in the liiiights?

(softly...)
C G
When I got home, heard the phone,
D
Your parents had arrived.
C
And your dad set his jaw
G D
Your mom just smiled and sighed.
(getting louder...)
C G
But they left soon and I went to my room.
D/F#m
Played that disc that you'd given me,
Cadd9 G*
And I shut my eyes
Dsus2
Swear I could hear the sea...

Am Am7
When we were standing on the hood of your car
C D
Singing out loud when the sun came up.

*CHORUS*
C G
And I know I wasn't right,
Dsus2
But it felt so good.
Cadd9 G*
And your mother didn't mind,
D/F#m
Like I thought she would.
C G D
And that REM song was playing in my mind.
Am Am7 C
And three and a half minutes,
Dsus2 Am7 C
Three and a half minutes,
D G
Felt like a lifetime.
