Intro: G D G D

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.
G/A
Never kept me up before,
D
Now Iíve been awake for days.
G/A
I canít fight it anymore,
D                
Iím 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 canít get down any farther.
G/A
All my drowning friends can see,
D
Now there is no running from it.
G/A
Itís 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
But I stay down,
           D
With my demons


G
Passing buzzards in the sky,
D
Alligators in the sewers.
G
I donít even wonder why,
D
Hide among the unbelievers.
G/A
Huddle with them all night long,
D
The worried talk to god goes on.
G/A
I sincerely tried to love it,
D
Wish that I could rise above it.

But I stay down,
            D
With my demons.

I stay down,

With my demons

I stay down,
           D
With my demons


Em
Can I stay here? I can sleep
D
on the floor
Em
Paint the blood and hang the palms,
D
On the door.
Em                              D
Do not think Iím going places anymore,
Am                      D                    
Wanna see the sun come up above New York.

         An
Oh, everyday I start so great,
D
Then the sunlight dips.
Am
Less Iíve learned,
                     D
The more I see the pythons and the limbs.
Am
Do not know whatís wrong with me,
D
Sours in the cup.
Am
When I walk into a room,
D
I do not light it up.
D
Fuck.
