Chords: C, Cmaj7, F, Am, E, G
[Verse]
C                 Cmaj7                F
Smoke against the windowpane, just the semis breathing on the interstate
  Am            E            F
A gray upon the graying of October
C              Cmaj7           F
Hey honey it’s been so long, i got so lost, so far down
    Am                E              F
The tracks of an old abandoned rollercoaster
        Am                       E                F
See the wheels fell off, and the rails all rusted over

[Verse]
C          Cmaj7                  F
I remember you that night, in the noisy bar, in the yellow light
    Am        E                F
The radiating heat between our shoulders
C                      Cmaj7            F
And i know good things never last, yeah i know that now but i didn’t then
      Am              E                F
And i let you lead me blind around the corner

[Chorus]
    E                                    Am
But sometimes still at night i dream, an empty bottle in the alleyway
     C                G                 Am
On a night so clear a billion stars are born
    E                               Am
And each one is a world i guess, of dust and flame and wishes cast
   F                                G
By lovers hoping love will last til morning

[Instrumental]
C C Am E F

[Verse]
   C                Cmaj7             F
We tried a while to make it good, you hid the cans, i played the fool
    Am               E               F
You got some work, i got sick in the mornings
        C                     Cmaj7
But you lost that job, and we got kicked out
    F
Hey babe, ain’t nothing to cry about
        Am                   E             F
And you said you’d send some cash from california

[Chorus]
    E                                    Am
But sometimes still at night i dream, an empty bottle in the alleyway
     C                G                 Am
On a night so clear a billion stars are born
    E                               Am
And each one is a world i guess, of dust and flame and wishes cast
   F                                G
By lovers hoping love will last til morning

[Instrumental]
C C Am E F

[Bridge]
    Am          G                C                     F
Now i got work, down the street, cleaning rooms at the super 8
    Am                G               F
Sometimes i take the path home by the river
      Am              G                  C                F
And i wonder what our daughter’s like, i hope that family treats her right
    Am                F                  G
And gives her all the things we couldn’t give her

[Instrumental]
C C Am E F

[Verse]
      C                   Cmaj7          F
Now a dream is all that’s left of you, i guess some folks are born to lose
     Am                E              F
Some kids are born for someone else’s cradle
        C             Cmaj7          F
And the days go by, i get along, the air grows cool and the leaves fall
        Am                 E                 F
And the smoke it moves and fades against the window
