lyrics

SAYING SOMETHING YOU HEARD BEFORE

verse: F Bb
chorus/intro: (Dm A Bb F) x3 C
post-chorus: Gm Gm Bb F F Am

oh those boys of summer they have gone for good
love lost gone like a river drowning your neighbourhood
moved out taking all you own & all the blame
you alone are allowed to sing his full name

[chorus]
saying something you heard before
always the one who isn't sure
saying something you heard before
& you've got a friend you're not sure how
& there is an end & it begins

[post-chorus]
now, it begins now / the songs are the same
but they don't sound the same / & there is an end
& it begins

god damn upset if i let you badmouth yourself
you do it for the me in you & the you in someone else

[ch]
saying something you've known so long
i'll be the first to say i'm wrong
saying something you've known so long
& you've got a friend you're not sure how
& there is an end & it begins

[post]
[solo over chorus]

you're so accident-prone you'll fall like so many tears
something has been missing for years & years & years

[repeat 1st ch & post x2]

oh those boys of summer they have gone...for good
