  You make the scene...
  Going upstream... etc

Verse 1:
C            C#o            Dm     Em
You make the scene like you always do
C       C#o              Dm  Em
Going upstream , down the avenue
C            C#o                    Dm                 Em
To fuck some trophy boy that you'll win tonight at the bar
C   Em/B     Am
So  bad,  so far
            F7M        C
You make me sad shooting star

Verse 2:
When it was me I was momentarily proud
Full of dreams now I'm glad I didn't say out loud
Hoping you'd be for real when I don't believe that you are
So bad, so far

Middle 8:
Dm              G          C       /B  Am
I'm distant and cold and a sight to behold
Am   G    F
Everybody Sighs
Dm          G       C   /B   Am
No one gets on with you very long
Am                 G            D/F#  F
Cos you don't feel bad when you lie

Verse 3:
I'm going to sleep now which I would guess would be step one
Step two is where I can deal with the things you've done
It won't be soon but at least it'll be hard
So bad, so far
You make me sad, shooting star
