Birdy - The District Sleeps Alone Tonight: chords

  C      Dm   Am
Smeared black ink
C    Dm          Am
Your face is ashen and I'm barely listening
C   Dm    Am
To last demands
C                  Dm
I'm staring at the asphalt wondering
Am
What's buried underneath

Chorus:
  C     F G
Where I am
  C     F G
Where I am

I'll wear my badge
A vinyl sticker with
big block letters adherent to my chest
Tells your new friends
I am a visitor here
I am not permanent
And the only thing
Keeping me dry is

Chorus:
Where I am
(You seem so out of context in
this gaudy apartment complex)
Where I am
(A stranger with your door key
explaining that I am just visiting)
Where I am
(And I am finally seeing why
I was the one worth leaving)
(Why I was the one worth leaving)

Am C    F
D.C. sleeps alone tonight
Am C    F
D.C. sleeps alone tonight

Chorus

Am             F            G                                    Am
The district sleeps alone tonight after the bars turn out their lights
              F             G                          Am
And leave the autos swerving into the loneliest evening
Am        F            G                            F
And I am finally seeing why I was the one worth leaving
                         C
Why I was the one worth leaving
                         F
Why I was the one worth leaving
                         C
Why I was the one worth leaving
