Capo 2nd fret 

G5                                E5                 C5     D5 
Oh the party's kicked up a few notches look at us getting loose 
           G5                               E5                C5 
She leans back against the wall and she watches tugging her collar like it  
             D5 
might be a noose. 
E5                           C5 
And everyones tied to their thing 
          E5                        C5 
To their past or their drink or the date that they bring 
             G5            E5             C5  D5 
I just get tired all of sudden taking it in. 


               E5 D5  C5    G5       A5  D5 
And I want to lay my head down on you 
                   E5 D5  C5    G5            A5  D5 
Because youre the only solid thing in this room 
                 G5       E5      C5         D5 
A room full of changes strangers illusion confusion, 
    C5                        G5                       A5  D5 
I speak from my heart but im not really sure if its true. 
          G5      E5 D5       G5 
I wanna lay my head down on you. 

Oh dont waste too much time planning 
Or you'll get rug ripped out 
And the only way you'll be satisfied 
Is learning to live with out. 
But some plan for the kingdom of heaven 
And some take their chances and bet lucky seven 
I don't know what to believe I just show up and breathe anymore. 

And I wanna lay my head down on you 
Because youre the only solid thing in this room 

A room full of dressers, professors, lookers, hookers 
If I don't get out I'll do something I don't wanna do. 

And I wanna lay my head down on you. 

Was it so long ago 
That we sat and talked in your car 
Your things were all packed 
And the place you were headed not really that far 
Years later I think 
That I would have been much more alive 
To have taken you up on your offer and taken that drive 

Well everything that's come before us leads us to where we are now 
And thats simple, I know so why cant I let go of the feeling 
That im lost somehow 
I'm just a ghost looking in 
Out of my own life just visiting 
In search of a body to have and to hold and to keep and to sleep. 

I wanna lay my head down on you 
Because youre the only solid thing in this room 
A room full of missed chance, slow dance, cold fate heartache 
I showed up for a party and saw my life story full view 

And I wanna lay my head down on you.
