VERSE:
Gmaj9 Dmaj9 AI wish it was last September
Gmaj9When we could lose ourselves in crowds everyday

A Gmaj9But I don't want to walk away from Emaline
VERSE:
Dmaj9 A They're talking now
Gmaj9Does she know what they're saying?
Dmaj9 AShe's got the air to float above it
Gmaj9I'm sinking in this, someone should pay
