Intro: C

C                                         Am
They heard me singing and they told me to stop
                                  F              C
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
                                     Am
These days my life, I feel it has no purpose
                               F           C
But late at night the feelings swim to the surface

                                      Am
'Cause on the surface the city lights shine
                                F         C
They're calling at me, come and find your kind
                                     Am
Sometimes I wonder if the World's so small
                       F            C
That we can never get away from the sprawl


Chorus:
F             C
Living in the sprawl
F             C               F                C         C/B
Dead shopping malls rise like mountains beyond mountains
               Am
And there's no end in sight
                             F              C
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights



C                                Am
We rode our bikes to the nearest park
                         F             C
Sat under the swings and kissed in the dark
                                   Am
We shield our eyes from the police lights
                    F          C
We run away, but we don't know why

                                    Am
On the black river, the city lights shine
                                  F         C
They're screaming at us, we don't need your kind
                                     Am
Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small
                       F            C
That we can never get away from the sprawl


Chorus

Eb Cm Eb G

C                                         Am
They heard me singing and they told me to stop
                                  F              C
Quit these pretentious things and just punch the clock
                                     Am
Sometimes I wonder if the world's so small
                 F            C
Can we ever get away from the sprawl?


Chorus


C Am

                             F              C
I need the darkness, someone please cut the lights
