cool kids never have the tim[Emaj7]e[E] [A]
on a live wire right up off the [F#m]street, you and [B]I should mee[Emaj7]t[E] [A]
junebug skipping like a ston[Emaj7]e[E] [A]
with the headlights pointed at the daw[Ema7]n[E] [A]
we were sure we'd never see an [F#m]end to it all[B]
and I[E] don't even [A]care to shake these zipper bl[E]ues
and we don't [A]know just where our bones will [E]rest to dust I [A]guess
forgotten and abso[F#m]rbed into the earth [B]below

Says to tune down half step. I don't know the language for music but I guess this matches with the fact that I had to transpose -1 semitone for it to match up with the song.
