B
 God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
D
 remembering when you were mine
E
 in a still suburban town
B
 when every thursday i'd break those mountain passes
D
 and you'd skip your early classes
E
 and we'd learn how our bodies worked.


Riff 2 (X 1)


Verse 2
B
 god damn the black night with all it's foul temptation
D
 i become what i always hated
E
 when i was with you then
B
 we looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
D
 fumbling to make contact
E
 as the others slept inside


Chorus
B
 and together there
 D                                  E
 in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
                                            B
 began to pass from every pane of weathered glass
                      D                       E     F#
 and i held you closer than anyone would ever get


Riff 2 (X 2)


sorry, since i dont like the rest of the song im not gonna try to get it
