Fever dream high in the quiet of the night

What doesn't kill me makes me want you more

Hang your head low in the glow of the vending machine
B         B       B    B   B   B   B    B   B    B B       B B (13)

I'm not dying

We say that we'll just screw it up in these trying times

Bridge

I'm drunk in the back of the car
A      E      E   E    A   A  A    E 

And I cried like a baby coming home from the bar (Oh) 
E     E   A     A  A  E E    E  E      A      A    A     E B C#

Said, "I'm fine," but it wasn't true
E          A    E      E   E   A A    E

I don't wanna keep secrets just to keep you
C# B    C# B   C#   C# B   C#  B  C# C# B 

And I snuck in through the garden gate
A    A   A     E     E         E    A A     E 

Every night that summer just to seal my fate (Oh) 
E E       A     A     E E        E   E   A    A    E B C#

And I scream, "For whatever it's worth
E     A     E        E      E A A    A    E 

I love you, ain't that the worst thing you ever heard?"
E  C#  C#  C#    C#  C#  C#   C#    C#  C# B  C#

He looks up, grinning like a devil
C#  C#  C#   C# B    C# B C# C#


Chorus

And it's new, the shape of your body

A     A   C#       B          B   B    B A 

It's blue, the feeling I've got
A     C#   A    B B     B    B 

And it's ooh,       whoa  oh
A     A  C# E C# B A B F# A

It's a cruel             summer
A   A C# E C# B A B F# A 

It's cool, that's what I tell 'em
A     C#    B       B    B  B   A  

No rules in breakable heaven
A    C#  A   B B B       B A 

But ooh, whoa oh
A C# E C# B A B F# A 

It's a cruel              summer, with you
A   A  C# E C# B A B F# A      E  C#
