Round [C]here we[D] always stand up st[Em]raight[G]
Round [C]here [D]something radi[Em]ates[G]
Verse:
Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
she said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
she walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
she parks her car outside of my house
takes her clothes off
says she's close to understanding Jesus
she knows she's just a little misunderstood
she has trouble acting normal when she's nervous
Chorus:
Round [C]here we're [D]carving out our n[Em]ames[G]
Round [C]here [D]we all look the s[Em]ame[G]
Round [C]here we talk just like l[D]ions
But we s[Em]acrifice like l[G]ambs
Roun[C]d here she's s[D]lipping through my [Em]hands[G]
Bridge: (Please fill in the blanks)
Sleeping children got to run like the wind
out of the lightning dream
Mama's little baby better get herself in
out of the lightning
Verse:
She says It's only in my head
She says Shhh I know it's only in my head
But the girl in car in the parking lot
says "Man you should try to take a shot
can't you see my walls are crumbling?"
Then she looks up at the building
and says she's thinking of jumping
She says she's tired of life
she must be tired of something
Chorus:
Round [C]here she's a[D]lways on my m[Em]ind[G]
Round [C]here hey man [D]got lots of [Em]time[G]
Round [C]here we're never sent to bed [D]early
And [Em]nobody makes us w[G]ait
Round [C]here we stay up [D]very, very, [Em]very, very [G]late

[C(AddD]  Step out the front door like a [D]ghost
into the fog where no-one [Em7]notices
the contrast of w[G]hite on white.
And in in betw[C(AddD]een the moon and you
ang[D]els get a better view
of the c[Em7]rumbling difference between w[G]rong and right.
I walk i[C(AddD]n the air between the rain
[D]through myself and back again.
[Em7]Where?             I don't know.[G]

Through the door I h[D]ear her crying?
