*All tabs chords relative to capo ie       A|--0--      would be the open note on the
5th string WITH the capo on it.  As such, the chords (A, D, E, F#m, and Bm) are given as
their chord shapes, not the actual roots of the chords.  The real chords would be the

^  2x

Wrapped up in a short black coat worn thin,
A hand around her match to block the wind
She smiled as the smoke escaped her lips
And let her hand fall gently away from his

'Cause it's late now, and I'm tired of all these games
And the cold night stings my skin
I won't say it now, but I get closer every day
To letting this world win

*At this point, Tim starts strumming the same chords from above.

A                                    F#m
And the city chokes on everything it makes
D                       E              A      E
While the sunrise heals every heart it breaks
A                                    F#m
And not unlike the birds we all sing songs
D                E              A       E
To celebrate and mourn and just hang on

A                             F#m
'Cause it's late now, and the day has not been kind
D         E       A      E
So I came here to forget
A                     F#m
It's a hard town, but I hold my head up high
D                      E          A  E   or        E     A    E
Like a (?????Dead rose staying red?????Death Row Cigarettes????)


*This is all strummed chords

F#m      E                 Bm      D
Can this all wait till the morning air
F#m           E                   Bm               D
I can't think straight right now, seems like we're better off
F#m                    E         A         Bm         D           E
Without these clenched fists all boxing us in, I want out, I want out

Last Verse

*repeat the same finger picking pattern from the beginning verse

Like Christmas lights left up till mid-july
We kept alive something that should have died
And every day another light burns out
Till on this street we are the darkest house

*start strumming again

A                         F#m
'Cause it's late now, and everybody's left
D           E       A   E
And I think I might too
A                                    F#m
But like my mother said, 'You always leave with who you bring.'
D          E         A
And I came here with you

A:                 F#m:                D:              E:               Bm
