Teenage Parents

	  		
Intro: 
B Bb A E 
E F#m G# F#m 

Verse I 
B              F#        A              E* 
You climb six lonely sad stairs to your apartment 
      E                 F#m          G#                 F#m 
After another graveyard shift in the cold dull light of morning. 
B             Bb             G#                  F#m 
You walked in just in time to catch her as she's leaving 
         E                F#m                G#            F#       
But the schedules and the conflicts kept the roof over our heads. 

Pre-Chorus 
    E              F#m 
You said you were strong and naive and 
B           F#                    E* 
If you were scared, well, I would understand. 
                           B               F#m 
I don't think I would have had the guts to handle it. 

tabchorus
B F#m E F#m All we had were hand-me-downs. B F#m E F#m And all we had was good will G# A E* And you always said it would get better. B F#m "When you're young and you're poor, they hang on your failures." G# A E* And you always said it would get better.

Post-Chorus B Bb A E E F#m G# F#m Verse II B F#m G# F#m We bought our first house at the advent of the 90s E F#m G# F#m A Cape Cod on a busy street that we swore we'd fix eventually. B F#m G# F#m Winter of '93, we got by with kerosene E F#m G# F#m E A heater in the living room, we huddled around shivering and me F#m B Trying to get to sleep. F# E* My clothes will smell of smoke for weeks. B Just trying to get to sleep. B To sleep, F#m To sleep...
tabchorus
B F#m E F#m All we had were hand-me-downs. B F#m E F#m And all we had was good will G# A E* And you always said it would get better. B F#m "When you're young and you're poor, they hang on your failures." G# A E And you always said it would get better. B F# I'm sick of seeing ghosts. I won't be here forever.

Bridge E* F# My mother wore a sundress on the day that she got married. E* F# They held the wedding in a backyard near the city. E* I was just one then, I would never remember it F# E* But I heard the voices and implications G# F#m Telling me who I could never be. Break B F# E* B All we had were hand-me-downs. E* B F# B F# And all we had was good will.
tabchorus
B F#m E F#m All we had were hand-me-downs. B F#m E F#m And all we had was good will G# A E* And you always said it would get better. B F#m "When you're young and you're poor, they hang on your failures." G# A B E* F# And you always said it would get better.
