         G                                                D

1. When I think of you in the city, the sight of you among the sites,

       G                                              D

    I get this sudden sinking feeling of a man about to fly.

     Am                                     D

    Never kept me up before, now I've been awake for days,

  Am                                         D

    I can't fight it anymore, I'm going through an awkward phase.

 

   G                                       D

2. I am secretly in love with everyone that I grew up with,

     G                                    D

    do my crying underwater I can't get down any farther.

    Am                                                 D

    All my drowning friends can see, now there is no running from it,

   Am                                           D

    it's become the crux of me, I wish that I could rise above it.

 

                  G                    D

But I stay down with my demons,

            G                   D

I stay down with my demons,

 

      G                                           D

3. Passing buzzards in the sky, alligators in the sewers,

   G                                       D

    I don't even wonder why hide among the under views.

      Am                                                  D

    Huddle with them all night long the worried talk to god goes on,

  Am                                          D

    I sincerely tried to love her, wish that I could rise above her.

 

                 G                     D

But I stay down with my demons,

            G                   D

I stay down with my demons,

          Am                   D

I stay down with my demons,

          Am                   D

I stay down with my demons.

 

 

 

 

 

 

     Em                                            D

4. Cannot stay here, I can't sleep on the floor,

    Em                                                     D

    drink the blood and hang the palms on the door.

    Em                      C                  D

    Do not think I'm going places anymore,

     Em                    C                     D

    wanna see the sun come up above New York.

 

           Am                                      D

5. Oh, every day I start so great, then the sunlight dims,

    Am                                                     D

    less I've learned the more I see the pythons and the limbs.

    Am                                                      D

    Do not know what's wrong with me, sours in the cup,

        Am                                D

    when I walk into a room I do not light it up, f*ck.

 

               Em                   D

So I stay down with my demons,

         Em                    D

I stay down with my demons.

          Am                   D

I stay down with my demons,

          Am                   D

I stay down with my demons.
