VERSE

Am
God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
C

Remembering when you were mine
G

In a still suburban town

Am
When every thursday I'd brave those mountain passes
C

And you'd skip your early classes
G

And we'd learn how our bodies worked.

Am
God damn the black night with all it's foul temptation
C

I become what I always hated
G

When I was with you then

Am
We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
C

Fumbling to make contact
G

As the others slept inside

Am
And together there
Fmaj
In a shroud of frost, the mountain air
G

Began to pass from every pane of weathered glass
Am               Fmaj                        G       E

And I held you closer than anyone would ever get

Fmaj                G Fmaj
Do you remember the JAMC?
F                   G Fmaj
And reading aloud from magazines
Fmaj                               G Fmaj
I don't know about you but I swear on my name they could smell it on me
Fmaj                 G Fmaj
I've never been too good with secrets.
No...

(repeat G Fmaj progression)

And together there
In a shroud of frost and mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer...

View Just Lyrics...

God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
Remembering when you were mine in a still suburban town

When every Thursday, I'd brave those mountain passes
And you'd skip your early classes and we'd learn how our bodies worked

God damn the black night, with all its foul temptations
I've become what I always hated when I was with you then

We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
Fumbling to make contact as the others slept inside
And together there in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer than anyone would ever get

Remember the J.A.M.C. and reading aloud from magazines
I don't know about you but I swear on my name they could smell it on me
But I've never been to good with secrets, oh

Oh together there in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer
