E
You're in an all-girl band
E
Your futon's second hand
E                                            D E
Your parents understand but you don't care
E
I have a job in a shop
E
I'm an undercover cop
E                                           
I make sure the customers aren't thieves
B          F#m         
Old at being young
B          F#M
Young at being old
B                   F#m
Everything's on hold within our evolution

You're my alternative girlfriend
E      G    F#m               B
I love you, now you cannot pretend

There's nothing left that won't cross over

E
Last night we slept on the lawn
E
You woke up and I was gone
E                                   E D E
Back to the dream I dream to leave
E
My life with her is a bore
E
A worn-out metaphor
E
No more surprises up it's sleeve
B                 F#m
We're old at being young
B             F#m
Young at being old

Everything's been sold to other's revolutions

There's nothing left that won't cross over

E (Quick Palm mutes)           A
You live above your dad's four-car garage
         E                    A
With your vinyl and imaginary entourage
     E                    A
If I pull up in a u-haul, pack up quick
      E                                  A            G(hold)
So we can get out of this town 'cause it makes me sick

You're my alternative girlfriend
E      G    F#m               B
I love you, now you cannot pretend
C#m                                   A
There's nothing left that won't cross over
