Intro: G D

[Verse 1]
G
When I think of you in the city
D
The sight of you among the sites
G
I get this sudden sinking feeling
D
Of a man about to fly
C
Never kept me up before
D
Now I've been awake for days
C
I can't fight it anymore
D
I'm going through an awkward phase

G
I am secretly in love with
D
Everyone that I grew up with
G
Do my crying underwater
D
I can't get down any farther
C
All my drowning friends can see
D
Now there is no running from it
C
It's become the crux of me
D
I wish that I could rise above it

[Chorus]
           G
But I stay down
        D
With my demons
       G
I stay down
        D
With my demons

[Verse 2]
G
Passing buzzards in the sky
D
Alligators in the sewers
G
I don't even wonder why
D
Hide among the under views
C
Huddle with them all night long
D
The worried talk to god goes on
C
I sincerely tried to love her
D
Wish that I could rise above her

[Chorus]
           G
But I stay down
        D
With my demons
       G
I stay down
        D
With my demons
       C
I stay down
        D
With my demons
       C
I stay down
        D
With my demons

[Verse 3]
Em
Cannot stay here I can't sleep
D
On the floor
Em
Drink the blood and hang the palms
D
On the door
Em                            D
Do not think I'm going places anymore
Em                        D
Wanna see the sun come up above New York
    Am
Oh, everyday I start so great
D
Then the sunlight dims
Am
Less I've learned
D
The more I see the pythons and the limbs
Am
Do not know what's wrong with me
D
Sours in the cup
Am
When I walk into a room
D
I do not light it up
F*ck

[Chorus]
          Em
So I stay down
        D
With my demons
       Em
I stay down
        D
With my demons
       Am
I stay down
        D
With my demons
       Am
I stay down
        D
With my demons
