INTRO
(with Riff #1)
C# F# A# G#  (2x)
 
VERSE
C#
Here we go again
                             F#
Pack your bags and leave all caution to the wind
               D#               F#
I've got a bad feeling that the roads you take
          A#             G#
Will take longer than we planned
 
PRE CHORUS
           A#                     G#
We used to drive all night on the 319
        C#                              F#
Singing songs with our friends that you threw away
    A#                    G#
You know, you dropped the bomb that killed the night
 
CHORUS
C#        F#                 A#                G#
If I were you, I'd cancel every plan that I've made today
C#           F#            A#                 G#
And drive as far away to a place where no one knows my name
 
(With Riff #1)
C# F# A#        G#
         It's 3AM and I'm lonely
 
VERSE
C#
Here's the place I'm at now
                     F#
At least you made me better with my goodbyes
               A#
Consider it a lesson to learn how to get through
        G#
Feeling hopeless for the first time
 
PRE CHORUS
           A#                     G#
We used to drive all night on the 319
        C#                              F#
Singing songs with our friends that you threw away
    A#                    G#
You know, you dropped the bomb that killed the night
F#             G#
But we made it out alive
 
CHORUS
C#        F#                 A#                G#
If I were you, I'd cancel every plan that I've made today
C#           F#            A#                 G#
And drive as far away to a place where no one knows my name
C#        F#                 A#                G#
If I were you, I'd take back everything I once claimed to be
C#           F#                    A#
I'd sing old songs that we used to sing
       G#
It's 3AM and I'm lonely
C#     F#      A#
Lonely, lonely
       G#
It's 3AM and I'm lonely
C#     F#      A#
Lonely, lonely
       G#
It's 3AM and I'm lonely
