            F/A                   F/Bb
You have to do it running but you do everything that they
F/C
ask you to cause you don't mind seeing
    F/A                  F/Bb
yourself in a picture as long as you look
    F/C
faraway, as long as you look removed
F/A               F/Bb      F/C
showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
F/A               F/Bb      F/C
showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters

        Dm                             F
You get mistaken for strangers by your own friends
         Bb                           F
when you pass them at night under the silvery, silvery
  Bb                    F              Am                    Am7
citibank lights, arm in arm in arm and eyes and eyes glazing under

       Gm                     F
Oh you wouldn't want an angel watching over.
   Bb                    F
Surprise, surprise, they wouldn't wannna watch
 Bb                 F                     Am            Am7
another uninnocent, elegant fall into the unmagnificent lives of adults

        F/A                          F/Bb
Make up something to believe in your heart of hearts
            F/C                       Csus4
so you have something to wear on your sleeve of sleeves
       F/A                  F/Bb
so you swear you just saw a feathery
      F/C                 Csus4
woman carry a blindfolded man through the trees
F/A               F/Bb      F/C                Csus4
showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
F/A               F/Bb      F/C                Csus4
showered and blue-blazered, fill yourself with quarters
