Intro chords: G Bm A

G       D                    A
Who are you if not the one I met
G        D                          A
One July night before the town went wet
G        D                   A
Jack and coke in your mama's car
                     G        D  A
You were reading The Bell Jar

Where are you if you're not on your own
Always lonely, never quite alone
Where's the Jesus that you swore you'd find
After running the last line

Are you living the life you chose
Bm                                A 
Are you living the life that chose you
Are you taking the grown up dose
Bm                              A 
Do you live with a man who knows you
A                        G  
Like I thought I did back then
Bm                  A          G  Bm  A
But I guess I never did, did I ?

I got lucky when I finished school
Lost three fingers to a faulty tool
Settled out of court, I'm no one's fool
You probably knew

There's plenty left to make a getaway
I've spent enough nights in the bluegrass state
We could go somewhere where people stay up late
Or just somewhere new


Em          A            D                G      
Here I am inviting you to throw your life away
  Em           A           D
A victim of nostalgia maybe take away
Em             A                 D                 G 
Just tonight I realized that I am still in your backseat
Em               A                D           A 
Nothing I've had since has meant a thing to me
