Wishing Well  The Airborne Toxic Event

I found that the other tabs for this song were inaccurate and hard to read, so I
decided to post my own version.
Capo 7th Fret
[G] [D] [C]  
[G]Standing on a bus stop
Feeling your head pop
[C]Out in the night
On the kind of night
[G]Where you want to be out
On the street, on the street
[C]Crawling up the walls
Like a cat in heat
[G]And the air is thin
And it blows through your skin
[C]And you feel like something
Is about to begin
[G]But you don't know what
And you don't know when
[C]So you tear at your hair
And you scratch at your skin
[G]You wanna run away, run away
Just get on the f**king train and leave today
[C]And it doesn't matter where you spend the night
You just might end up somewhere in a fight, in a fight
[G]Or caught in your room on a concrete shelf
Fighting all alone, with yourself, with yourself
[C]And you just wanna feel like a coin that's been tossed
In a wishing well, a wishing well
[D]A wishing well, a wishing well
Well, you're tossed in the air
[C]And you fell and you fell
Through the dark blue waters
[D]Where you cast your spell G
Like you were just a wish that could turn out well
[G] [C]  
[G]So you stand on the corner
Where the angels sit
[C]And you think to yourself,
"This is it, this is it,
[G]This is all that I have
All I can stand
[C]Is this air in my lungs
And this coin in my hand
[G]That you tossed in the air
And I fell, and I fell
[C]All the way to the bottom
Of the well, of the well
[G]Like those soft little secrets
That you tell, that you tell
[C]To yourself, when you think
No one's listening to, well"
[G]And the walls spin
And you're paper-thin
[C]And the mescaline
[G]The threat of your brow
Under unmade sheets
[C]In your ear with the noise
[G]We ran far and wide
You screamed, you cried
[C]You thought suicide was an alibi
[G]But you were always a mess
You were always aloof
[C]Yeah, it's awful, I guess
But it's the awful truth
It was truth from the first
To the last words that she read
[D]And she emerged from the dark
Like a ghost in my head
[C]She said, "I haven't forgot
Any words that you said
[D]I just stare at the clocks
And I cry in my sleep
[C]And I tear up your letters
And I burn them in heaps
[D]And I gather the ashes
In that hole in the ground
Where we [G]fell"
