Back back way back
          A#maj7                    Gm                        F
I used to front like Angkor Wat, Mechanicsburg, Anchorage and Dar es Salaam
      D#                      A#
While home from New York was champagne and disco
D#                 F
Tapes from l.a. slash San Francisco
    A#                    A#maj7
But actually Oakland and not Alameda
     Gm                           F
Your girl was in Berkeley with her communist reader
D#                         A#
Mine was entombed within boombox and Walkman
D#                    F
I was a hoarder but girl, that was back then

Interlude: A#  A#maj7  Gm  F

Chorus:
    A#                   A#maj7            Gm
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
          F
What you on about?
  D#             A#        D#              F
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
    A#                 A#maj7         Gm
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        F
Such a modest mouse
  D#            A#       D#            F
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone
A#                A#maj7                 Gm               F
Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl

Interlude: D#  A#  D#  F

Verse:
A#                      A#maj7
Ancestors told me that their girl was better
      Gm                        F
She's richer than Croesus, she's tougher than leather
D#                      A#
I just ignored all the tales of a past life
D#                    F
Stale conversation deserves but a bread knife
    A#                               A#maj7
And punks who would laugh when they saw us together
     Gm                     F
Well they didn't know how to dress for the weather
D#                          A#
I can still see them there huddled on Astor
D#                        F
Snow falling slow to the sound of the Master

Chorus:
    A#                   A#maj7            Gm
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
          F
What you on about?
  D#             A#        D#              F
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
    A#                 A#maj7         Gm
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        F
Such a modest mouse
  D#            A#       D#            F
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone

Interlude: A#  A#maj7  Gm  F   D#  A#  D#  F

Verse:
A#                         A#maj7
Wisdom's a gift but you'd trade it for youth
Gm                     F
Age is an honour - it's still not the truth
D#                          A#
We saw the stars when they hid from the world
D#                          F
You cursed the sun when it stepped to your girl
A#                      A#maj7
Maybe she's gone and I can't resurrect her
    Gm                       F
The truth is she doesn't need me to protect her
   D#                               A#
We don't know the true death - the true way of all flesh
D#                    F
Everyone's dying but girl - you're not old yet

Chorus:
    A#                   A#maj7            Gm
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
          F
What you on about?
  D#             A#        D#              F
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
    A#                 A#maj7         Gm
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        F
Such a modest mouse
  D#            A#       D#            F
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone


    A#                   A#maj7            Gm
The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
          F
What you on about?
  D#             A#        D#              F
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
    A#                 A#maj7         Gm
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
        F
Such a modest mouse
  D#            A#       D#            F
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone


A#                A#maj7                 Gm               F
Every time I see you in the world, you always step to my girl
