[Verse 1]
        G
I'm not tired yet
 C             G        F      G
We still got a lot to figure out
                   Am                C          G
Like what was the end of the movie about, anyways?
         C         G
You're yawning on your couch
  C           G        F    Em
I wonder if I overstayed my welcome
            Am              C               G
Until you asked me if I'd like to take a walk
      C             G
We're going to the five and dime
     C          G          F             Em
The only open place at this time of night
               Am                       F 
You're dancing in the aisle 'cause the radio
    Am            F
Is singing you a song you know
         Am                   C                 G
And the kid at the counter is gawking at your grace
      C                      Am                   G
I can tell what he's thinking by the look on his face
      Am                 C                G
It's not his fault, I'm sure I look the same
       C                Am              G
It's what you do, but it's not you I blame

[Verse 2]
     C      G
Your mama read my palm
      C               G        F      Em
She wouldn't tell me what it was she saw
            Am                  C                  G
But after that, you weren't allowed to spend the night
     C       G
I'm staring at my hands
      C      G           F      Em 
Red, ruddy skin, I don't understand
                Am                F
How did they betray me? What did I do?
            Am             F
I never touched you how I wanted to
  Am                    C                      G
What can I say to your mom to let you come outside?
      C                 Am                G
You know I'll be seeking if you run and hide
        Am                      C                      G
If the door were to open, would you walk through the frame?
    C                      Am             G
If you're too afraid, it won't be you I blame

[Verse 3]
              G
You passed a note in class
      C     G               F    Em
Told me to meet you at the overpass
                Am               C                 G
Your lip was trembling when you said that we are cursed
       C       G
You're trying not to cry
         C                G          F       Em
When you tell me you're afraid that we may die
             Am        C                 G
I said "So what? Everybody's scared of that"
               Am               F
I want you to tell me that you miss me
             Am                F
Want you to hold and hurt and kiss me
         Am            C                     G
I wanna run away and live on your family's boat
      C                          Am               G
It's a triple dog dare, you're a chicken if you don't
       Am                      C                      G
I can fish for our food and you know how to start a flame
        C                         Am                     G
If you don't get out now, you'll only have yourself to blame

You said, "You have me there
                     C
If it's a triple dog dare"
             Em
A triple dog dare

[Outro]
               Am          C
They put our faces on the milk jugs
           Am                G
Missing children 'til they gave up
               Am                      C
Your mama was right, and through the grief
                  Am          G
Can't fight the feeling of relief
          Am                C
Nothing worse could happen now
          Am                G
Nothing worse could happen now
          Am         G
Nothing worse could happen now
