G (riff)
Step out the front door like a ghost
into the fog where no one notices the contrast of white on white.
And in between the moon and you   the angels get a better view
of the crumbling difference between wrong and right
I walk in the air between the rain, through myself and back again
Where?  I don't know
Maria says she's dying.  Through the door, I hear her crying
Why?  I don't know

          C       D               Em       G/D
    Round here we always stand up straight
          C    D             Em   G/D
    Round here something radiates

G (riff)
Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
She parks her car outside of my house   Takes her clothes off,
Says she's close to understanding Jesus
She knows she's more than just a little misunderstood
She has trouble acting normal when she's nervous

          C          D               Em     G/D
    Round here we're carving out our names
          C    D               Em    G/D
    Round here we all look the same
          C                      D
    Round here we talk just like lions
           Em             G/D
    But we sacrifice like lambs
          C          D                   Em       A  D        A
    Round here she's slipping through my hands    /  /    Oh...

    G/D                      D            A      G/D        D         A
    Sleeping children got to run like the wind   Out of the lightning dream
    G/D                       D           A    G/D        D
    Mama's little baby better get herself in   Out of the lightning

G (riff)
She says, "It's only in my head."
She says, "Shhh...I know it's only in my head."
But the girl on the car in the parking lot
says: "Man, you should try to take a shot
Can't you see my walls are crumbling?"
Then she looks up at the building   and she says she's thinking of jumping
She says she's tired of life;   she must be tired of something.

          C          D            Em    G/D
    Round here she's always on my mind
          C    D             Em    G/D
    Round here I got lots of time
          C                            D
    Round here we're never sent to bed early
      Em            G/D
    Nobody makes us wait
          C               D         Em        G/D
    Round here we stay up very very very very late

                C        D              Em    G/D
    I can't see nothing, nothing around here
                        C                            D
    You catch me if I'm falling, you catch me if I'm falling
                                 Em                 G/D
    Will you catch me 'cause I'm falling down round here

G (riff)
I said I'm under the gun round here
I'm innocent, I'm under the gun round here
I can't see nothing, nothing round here.
