Bm
Keep the noise low, she doesn’t wanna blow it.
Em/D
Shaking head to toe while your left hand does the “show me around”
Bm G A
Quickens your heartbeat, beats you straight into the ground
Bm Em/D
You don’t recover from a night like this. A victim’s still lying in bed, completely motionless.
Bm G A
A hand moves in the dark to zipper, hear a boy bracing tight against the sheets, barely whispers:
Bm
“this is so messed up”
Bm
Upon arrival the guests had all stared,
Em/D
dripping wet and clearly depressed he’d headed straight for the stairs
Bm G A
No longer cool, but a boy in a stitch, unprepared for a life full of lies and failing relationships
Bm
He keeps his hands low, he doesn’t wanna blow it,
Em/D
he’s wet from head to toe and his eyes give her the up and the down
Bm
His stomach turns and he thinks of throwing up,
G A
but the body on the bed beckons forward and he starts growing up

[Chorus] (Power chords)
Bm D B–C#m Em D
The fever, the focus, the reasons that I had to believe you weren’t too hard to sell,
G Em D
die young and save yourself!

The tickle, the taste of, it used to be the reason I’d breathe but now it’s choking me up,
G Em D
die young and save yourself!

“This is the first and last time”, he says. She fakes a smile and presser her hips into his
Bm
He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides,
G A
he’s holding back from telling her exactly what it really feels like
Bm Em/D
He is the lamb, she is the slaughter. She’s moving way too fast and all he wanted was to hold her
Bm
Nothing that he tells her’s really having an effect,
G A
he whispers that he loves her, but she’s probably only looking for sex

and so much more than he could ever give, a life free of lies and a meaningful relationship
Bm
He keeps his hands pinned down at his sides,

he waits for it to end and for the aching in his guts to subside

Up the stairs, the station where the act becomes the art of growing up
