Email me @ if you have corrections

What a beautiful song! It's always been one of my favorites. None of these chords on
seemed to do it for me. They have the right chords and key but none of them REALLY get the
I don't think:) If you combine both of the chords that people already posted, you'd have 
perfect tab! So here it is:

White Houses, Vanessa Carlton.

C Am GCrashed on the floor when I moved in
C Am GThis little bungalow with some strange new friends
C Am GStay up too late, and I'm too thin
C Am GWe promise each other it's 'til the end
.......... AmNow we're spinning empty bottles
G FIt's the five of us
Am G FWith pretty eyed boys girls die to trust
Am GI can't resist the day
Am GNo, I can't resist the day
C Am GJenny screams out and it's no pose
C Am G'Cause when she dances she goes and goes
C Am GBeer through the nose on an inside joke
C Am GAnd I'm so excited, I haven't spoken
Am G FAnd she's so pretty, and she's so sure
Am G FMaybe I'm more clever than a girl like her
Am GSummer's all in bloom
Am GSummer is ending soon
F Am G FIt's alright and it's nice not to be so alone
Am G F C Am GBut I hold on to your secrets in white houses
C Am GMaybe I'm a little bit over my head
C Am GI come undone at the things he said
C Am GAnd he's so funny in his bright red shirt
C Am GWe were all in love and we all got hurt
Am G FI sneak into his car's cracked leather seat
Am G FThe smell of gasoline in the summer heat
Am GBoy, we're going way too fast
Am GIt's all too sweet to last
FIt's alright
Am G FAnd I put myself in his hands
Am G F C Am GBut I hold on to your secrets in white houses
F Am G FLove, or something ignites in my veins
Am G F C Am GAnd I pray it never fades in white houses
F C Am G FMy first time, hard to explain
C Am G FRush of blood, oh, and a little bit of pain
C Am G FOn a cloudy day, it's more common than you think
C Am G CHe's my first mistake
F Am G C (hold C for one measure, strum quietly)
C Am GMaybe you were all faster than me
C Am GWe gave each other up so easily
C Am GThese silly little wounds will never mend
C Am GI feel so far from where I've been
(strum a little louder)
F Am G FSo I go, and I will not be back here again
Am G F C Am GI'm gone as the day is fading on white houses...
(strum fully now)
F Am G FI lied, wrote my injuries all in the dust
Am G FIn my heart is the five of us
C Am GIn white houses
F Am G FAnd you, maybe you'll remember me
Am G FWhat I gave is yours to keep
C Am GIn white houses
F C Am GIn white houses
F C Am GIn white houses
(strum one final C chord and let ring out)
