Passing Through A Screen Door

	  		 

G                   Em9 
Cigarette smoke dances back in the window 
    Cadd9         Em7         D 
And I can see the haze on the dome light. 
    G                     Em9 
I`m conjuring ghosts on a forty-hour ride home. 
    Cadd9                        Em7           D 
And they keep asking me what I`m doing with my life, 
         Cadd9         D              Em7 
While my cousins go to bed with their wives. 
    Cadd9        D           A7sus4 
I'm feeling like I've fallen behind. 

         G 
Well the highway won. 
    Em9 
I`m listening to traffic reports, 
Cadd9              Em7       D 
One on one, coming quietly undone. 
      G            Em9 
I was born to run away from anything good 
     Cadd9 
An escape artist`s son 
                  Em7            D 
With sun-drenched pavement in my blood. 
    Cadd9              D         Em7 
The first thing that I do when I walk in 
   Cadd9      D            A7sus4 
Is plan a way out for when shit gets bad 

    E         D'      C   G`           E      
And I`ve been looking for tears in the screen door. 
 D`           C 
(tears in the screen door) 
E         D`      C     G`      E 
I`ve been waiting for another disaster. 
  D`       C 
(another disaster) 

G - Em9 - Cadd9 - Em7 - D 

    G                Em9 
I`m terrified like a kid in the sixties, 
Cadd9              Em7             D 
Staring at the sky waiting for the bomb to fall. 
     G                    Em9 
It`s all a lie, what they say about stability. 
   Cadd9 
It scares me sometimes, 
    Em7         D         A7sus4 
The emptiness I see in my eyes. 
        Em9                   Cadd9             D 
All the kid`s names I?ve ever liked are tied to tragedy 
A7sus4                    Em9                    Cadd9       D 
      And I don?t want my children growing up to be anything like me. 

Em7       D       Cadd9 
I`ve been looking for  
G            Em7 
Tears in the screen door. 
 D            Cadd9 
(tears in the screen door) 
Em7       D       Cadd9 
I`ve been waiting for  
 G        Em7    
Another disaster 
  D        Cadd9 
(another disaster) 
    Em7           Cadd9        D 
But I was kind of hoping you`d stay. 
Em7           Cadd9        G 
I was kind of hoping you`d stay. 

Cadd9 - G - D 

         Em7 
I keep a flashlight 
      Cadd9              G            D 
And a small knife in the corner of my bed stand. 
         Em7                Cadd9 
I keep a flashlight and the train times, 
                 G 
But you wouldn?t understand. 
              D 
How could you understand? 

      Em7               Cadd9 
Jesus Christ. I`m twentysix. 
        G                  Cadd9 
All the people I graduated with 
         Em7            Cadd9 
All have kids, all have wives, 
         G                       Cadd9 
All have people who care if they come home at night. 
      Em7           D 
Jesus Christ, did I fuck up? 

Em7       D       Cadd9 
I`ve been looking for  
G            Em7 
Tears in the screen door. 
 D            Cadd9 
(tears in the screen door) 
Em7       D       Cadd9 
I`ve been waiting for  
 G        Em7    
Another disaster 
  D        Cadd9 
(another disaster) 
    Em7           Cadd9        D 
But I was kind of hoping you`d stay. 
Em7           Cadd9        G 
I was kind of hoping you`d stay. 
Em7           D            G 
I was kind of hoping you`d stay.
