Verse 1:

         C5       G5
When you chew my ear off,
C5              F5
Try and let me know,
       C5          G5               C5
You will never get another piece of me,
           C5        G5
Cause in a New york Blackout,
C5               F5
Things go kinda slow,
           C5                   G5                   C5 
And you'll miss the things you never thought you'd see,

        G5             C5       
There?s still so many things I want to be,
    F5                  C5            G5 
Sometimes I just don?t even want to sleep,

Verse 2:
     C5        G5
In a new york blackout,
C5              F5
Its so hard to see,
        C5               G5             C5
All the angels that are looking after me,

    G5                   C5
The lice fell soft, the water in your eyes,
        F5               C5               G5
And the dead lift there heads and come alive,

    C5            G5                   Bb5    
And I may never escape this darkened city,
    C5              G5                Bb5
But still I try to find you in this blackout,

Bb5 - F5 x2

Verse 3:

Where its warm inside,
And always open late,
And the doors to hell look just like heavens gate,
And you never know,
What going on inside,
Till you step out in the cold and seal your fate,


You might just stop in and say hello,
But you have much more important places to go,
Make sure you let everybody know,


And I may never enlighten this darkened city,
And still I'm trying to find you in this blackout,

Verse 4:

In a new york black out,
You might think I'm gone,
But I'll wake up on the front steps of your door
