How To Play

Capo: 3rd fret

VERSE 1
D          G                     Em
  Salt air, and the rust on your door
                        A
I never needed anything more
D         G             Em
  Whispers of "Are you sure?"
                    A
Never have I ever before
 
 
CHORUS
    D
But I can see us lost in the memory
  G                                   Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
                      A
'Cause it was never mine
    D
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
  G                                   Em
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                        A
'Cause you were never mine
 
 
VERSE 2
  D           G         Em
Your back beneath the sun
                              A
Wishin' I could write my name on it
  D             G                 Em
Will you call when you're back at school?
                      A
I remember thinkin' I had you
 
 
CHORUS
    D
But I can see us lost in the memory
  G                                   Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
                      A
'Cause it was never mine
    D
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
  G                                   Em
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                        A
'Cause you were never mine
 
 
INTERLUDE
D G Em A
 
 
BRIDGE
  D                                         G
Back when we were still changin' for the better
                Em
Wanting was enough
                A
For me, it was enough
                 D
To live for the hope of it all
                         G
Canceled plans just in case you'd call
                               Em
And say "Meet me behind the mall"
                    A
So much for summer love and saying "Us"
                    D         G
'Cause you weren't mine to lose
                    Em       A
You weren't mine to lose, oh
 
 
CHORUS
    D
But I can see us lost in the memory
  G                                   Em
August slipped away into a moment in time
                      A
'Cause it was never mine
    D
And I can see us twistin' in bedsheets
  G                                   Em
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                        A
'Cause you were never mine
 
 
OUTRO
  D                    G
'Cause you were never mine
       Em
Never mine
               A
But do you remember
    D
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
            G
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call
 Em                                                       A
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
                     D
"Meet me behind the mall"
   D
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
             G
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call
  Em                                                     A
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
                      D
"Meet me behind the mall"
    D
Remember when I pulled up and said "Get in the car"
             G
And then canceled my plans just in case you'd call
  Em                             A
Back when I was livin' for the hope of it all (For the hope of it all)
         D                        G
For the hope of it all, for the hope of it all
           Em                        A
(For the hope of it all, for the hope of it all)
