Intro:
E  B  Dbm      Abm

B
Tell me a reason
   Ebm
To break things off,
   F#
Or stop the bleeding,
    E
When it's my season.

  B
My mind was just revving.
  Ebm
Your eyes, they went hard.
  F#
Our parents were freaking,
   E
But it was our season,
E   Ebm        Dbm
All that time ago.
  
B                  Db                      Abm
And if you want to stop our "thing" you'll stop my heart.
Eb                           E
All this pain inside's still just too sharp.

A
What was I thinking?
B
Step out of your trailer
Ebm
And into this dark!
F#
It's warm and it's breathing,
E
And it's our season.

B
Your dad is half sleeping.
Ebm
But, really, he's gone.
F#
Can you hear his VCR weeping?
E
They crossed his wires completely
E                Ebm        Dbm
When they made him fire that gun.

B                          Db               Abm
I'll say to you: to cut it off's to cut me down...
 Eb                            E
If they take me out of school, you out of town...
B                   Db                 Abm
I called a friend, my world at end, my words unwound.
 Eb                                     
I said, "It's crashing down around our heads".
E                                            B   Ebm       F#   E 
We're dumb. We're dead. Shut up about it now. 

B   Ebm       F#   E  (x2)

B                         Ebm   
I won't say I'm sorry, and how would they know?
F#                                 E
Below the Atari I could feel your heart was just going.
B                            Ebm
We'll meet on the weekend. Your dad won't be home.
F#
Your sister's out cleaning.
E                                      B
You don't need to speak it, because I know,
        Ebm           F#
Baby, I know. I said I know.
            E             
You know I know.
      

B   Ebm  F#  E

That it was our season.
It's hard to believe it.
There isn't a reason.
It's only a feeling...
When I look back on it now, remember how
Mixed up I got before they got me sorted out...
All that heart-in-my-mouth,
All that head filled with doubt,
It's fading out.
I hardly think about it now.

               B
They say that I'll go to college
        Ebm
And you will stay home
F#
And watch while I'm leaving,
E
And the cold will just creep in.
    Ebm    Dbm
Oh, Jason, I know.
