The Suburbs

Capo on fret 2

[C]    [Am]    [E]    [G]    
[C]    [Am]    [E]    [G]    
[C]In the suburbs, [Am]I    [E] I learned to [G]drive
And you [C]told me we’d never sur[Am]vive,
[E]Grab your mother’s [G]keys, we’re leaving
[C]    [Am]    [E]    [G]    
[C]You always seemed so [Am]sure,
[E]that one [G]day we’d be fighting [C]In a suburban [Am]war,   
[E]Your part of [G]town against mine
I saw you [C]standing on the opposite [Am]shore,
[E]but by the [G]time the first bombs fell
[C]We were already [Am]bored,
[E]we were already, [G]already bored

[C]Sometimes I [Am]can’t believe it,
[E]I’m moving [D]past the feeling
[C]Sometimes I [Am]can’t believe it,
[E]I’m moving [D]past the feeling
A[C]gain [Am]    [E]    [G]    

The [C]kids wanna be so [Am]hard,
[E]but in my [G]dreams we’re still screaming
And [C]running through the [Am]yard,
[E]when all of the [G]walls that they built In the [C]seventies finally [Am]fall,
[E] and all of the [G]houses they built In the [C]seventies finally [Am]fall,
meant nothing at all,
[E]meant nothing [G]at all, it meant nothing

[C]Sometimes I [Am]can’t believe it,
[E]I’m moving [D]past the feeling
[C]Sometimes I [Am]can’t believe it,
[E]I’m moving [D]past the feeling
And [C]into the night [Am]    [E]    [G]    

[C]    [Am]    [E]    [G]    
[C] So can you understand,
[Am]    [E]why I want a [G]daughter While I’m still [C]young[Am],   
I wanna [E]hold her hand
and [G]show her some beauty be[C]fore all this damage is [Am]done,
[E]but if it’s [G]too much to ask If it’s [C]too much to ask[Am],   
then send me a [E]son [G]    
[C]Under the overpass[Am],   
[E]In the parking [G]lot we’re still waiting It’s [C]already passed[Am],   
[E]So move your [G]feet from hot pavement And [C]into the grass,
[Am]'cause it’s already [E]past, it’s already, [G]already past

[C]Sometimes I [Am]can’t believe it,
[E]I’m moving [D]past the feeling
[C]Sometimes I [Am]can’t believe it,
[E]I’m moving [D]past the feeling
A[C]gain[Am],    [E] I'm moving [D]past the feeling
[C]    [Am]    [E] I’m moving [D]past the feeling
[C]    [Am]    [E]    [G]    
[C]    [Am]    [E] In my [G]dreams
We're still screa[C]mi  [Am]ng    [E]    [G]    
We’re still screa[C]mi  [Am]ng    [E]    [G]    
We’re still screa[C]mi  [Am]ng    [E]    [G]    
[C]    [Am]    [E]    [G]    
[C]    [Am]    




In the suburbs, I I learned to drive
And you told me we’d never survive,
Grab your mother’s keys, we’re leaving

You always seemed so sure,
that one day we’d be fighting In a suburban war,
Your part of town against mine
I saw you standing on the opposite shore,
but by the time the first bombs fell
We were already bored,
we were already, already bored

Sometimes I can’t believe it,
I’m moving past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it,
I’m moving past the feeling
Again

The kids wanna be so hard,
but in my dreams we’re still screaming
And running through the yard,
when all of the walls that they built In the seventies finally fall,
and all of the houses they built In the seventies finally fall,
meant nothing at all,
meant nothing at all, it meant nothing

Sometimes I can’t believe it,
I’m moving past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it,
I’m moving past the feeling
And into the night


So can you understand,
why I want a daughter While I’m still young,
I wanna hold her hand
and show her some beauty before all this damage is done,
but if it’s too much to ask If it’s too much to ask,
then send me a son
Under the overpass,
In the parking lot we’re still waiting It’s already passed,
So move your feet from hot pavement And into the grass,
'cause it’s already past, it’s already, already past

Sometimes I can’t believe it,
I’m moving past the feeling
Sometimes I can’t believe it,
I’m moving past the feeling
Again, I'm moving past the feeling
I’m moving past the feeling

In my dreams
We're still screaming
We’re still screaming
We’re still screaming
