Verse

C - Dm - Am - Am (x4)

Smeared black ink...
your palms are sweaty
And i'm barely listening
to last demands
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering what's buried underneath

Interlude
---------


F - C - G - G (x4)

Where I am...
 A line witbout vocals
Where I am...
 A line witbout vocals

Verse
 -----
C - Dm - Am - Am (x6)

I'll wear my badge...
a vinyl sticker with big block letters adherent to my chest
That tells your new friends
i am a visitor here... I am not permanent
And the only thing
keeping me dry is

Chorus
------


 Repeats tbrougbout cborus
(Where I am) 

F - C - G - G (x4)

You seem so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with your door key explaining that i am just visiting
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving

Chorus
------


 Repeats tbrougbout cborus
(Where I am) 

F - C - G - G (x10)

You seem so so out of context in this gaudy apartment complex
A stranger with your door key explaining that i am just visiting
And i am finally seing why i was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving

The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
And send the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
And i am finally seeing why i was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving

Why I was the one worth leaving
Why I was the one worth leaving
