Verse 1:
          C          Cmaj7   C        Cmaj7
And We're all dressed up, no place to run
   C       Cmaj7    C         Cmaj7
No car, no girl, no pills, no fun
   Am      Am7        Am    Am7
Nothing to do in this empty room
        Am     Am7  Am       Am7
I gotta get my head together soon

C     Cmaj7      C        Cmaj7
Alone again, no plans, no friends
    C      Cmaj7  C         Cmaj7
You come around at half past ten
        Am           Am7     Am    Am7
And say "How are you holding up my friend?
        Am      Am7            Am    Am7
Are you sitting around getting drunk again?"

Chorus 1:
      Dm                              Em
And I hear the desperation of those lines
       F                       G
Wasted hours, all this wasted time

Yeah, I been just fine!

C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am Am7 Am Am7

Verse 2:
          C       Cmaj7      C    Cmaj7
And we're out the door in an hour more
   C       Cmaj7         C      Cmaj7
We stumble down from the second floor
         Am   Am7     Am  Am7
And we're swaying and braying
   Am         Am7        Am  Am7
We don't know what we're saying

        C       Cmaj7       C      Cmaj7
And you grab my shirt, your way so curt
  C        Cmaj7         C       Cmaj7
I swear to God that this doesn't hurt
         Am         Am7       Am          Am7
When you stare like that, you put on that act
    Am      Am7                Am      Am7
You say something and then you take it back

Chorus 2:
      Dm                                 Em
And I feel as though I've done something wrong
          F                     G
Oh, how I miss you when you are gone

C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am Am7 Am Am7

C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7 C Cmaj7

Am Am7 Am Am7 Am Am7 Am Am7

Dm Em F G

Verse 3:
      C      Cmaj7   C       Cmaj7
And I wish I had the guts to scream
          C             Cmaj7  C         Cmaj7
You know, things aren't always what they seem
         Am   Am7          Am     Am7
When you walk away, I want you to stay
      Am       Am7     Am       Am7
Don't leave me here to pace and pray

          C        Cmaj7   C       Cmaj7
All these nights I burned, hours I turned
      C        Cmaj7 C      Cmaj7
You'd think that by now I'd learned
             Am  Am7      Am         Am7
That you're only what you pretend to be
  Am         Am7      Am      Am7
I guess that was just lost on me

Chorus 3:
            Dm                                   Em
And I can't stand the way you look at me in that dress
        F                         G
Oh Papillon, I might be alright I guess

If I wasn't such a mess
