[E]You're in an all-girl band
[E]Your futon's second hand
[E]Your parents understand but you don't care[D] [E]
[E]I have a job in a shop
[E]I'm an undercover cop
[E]I make sure the customers aren't thieves
[B]Old at bein[F#m]g young
[B]Young at be[F#m]ing old
[B]Everything's on hold[F#m] within our evolution
CHORUS:
[E]You're [G]my al[F#m]ternative girl[B]friend
[E]I love [G]you, [F#m]now you cannot pre[B]tend
[C#m]There's nothing left that won't cross [A]over
[E]Last night we slept on the lawn
[E]You woke up and I was gone
[E]Back to the dream I dream to leave[E] [D] [E]
[E]My life with her is a bore
[E]A worn-out metaphor
[E]No more surprises up it's sleeve
[B]We're old at being[F#m] young
[B]Young at being[F#m] old
[B]Everything's been[F#m] sold to other's revolutions
CHORUS:
[E]You're [G]my al[F#m]ternative girl[B]friend
[E]I love [G]you, [F#m]now you cannot pre[B]tend
[C#m]There's nothing left that won't cross [A]over
E (Quick Palm mutes) A
You live above your dad's four-car garage
With your[E] vinyl and imaginary [A]entourage
If I [E]pull up in a u-haul, [A]pack up quick
E A G(hold)
So we can get out of this town 'cause it makes me sick
CHORUS:
[E]You're [G]my al[F#m]ternative girl[B]friend
[E]I love [G]you, [F#m]now you cannot pre[B]tend
[C#m]There's nothing left that won't cross [A]over

E(hold)
You're my alternnative girlfriend
E (over and over) or Riff
