    Intro:  / G - - - / x4

     

    G (2)              C (2)      Am (2)

    You remind me of home: the paint cracks when the water leaks

              C (2)               

    from the rusty pipes that are just beneath my feet.

    G (2)                Dsus2 (2)    Am (2)

      You remind me of home:   the heater's warm but fills the room with a

     C (2)                    

    potpourri of dust and gas fumes.

     

    / G - - - / x4

     

    G (2)              C (2)     Am (2)

    You remind me of home: a broken bed with dirty sheets that

       C (2)

    creaks when I am shifting in my sleep.

    G (2)              Dsus2 (2)     Am (2)

    You remind me of home: in a suburban town with nothing to do,

    C (2)

    patiently waiting for something to happen.

     

    / G - - - / x4

     

             Em  G           (Riff I)            

    But the foundation is crumbling  

    Em        G             (Riff II)

       and becoming one with the ground

    Em             G         (Riff I)

        while you lay there in slumber...

     

    Em         G             (Riff III)

       You're wasting your life. Wasting your life.

    Em         G             (Riff III)

       You're wasting your life. Wasting your life.

    Em         G             (Riff III)

       You're wasting your life. Wasting your life.

    Em         G             (Riff III)

       You're wasting your life. Wasting your life.

     

    Em   G   (Riff III)

               Wasting your life.

    Em   G   (Riff IV)

               Wasting your life.

     

    / G - - - / x4

     

     G (2)             C (2)  Am (2)

    You remind me of home:  sitting on a thrift store couch,

          C (2)                G (hold)

    I'm trying to get this all        down
