Verse: C
 C
 Crashed on the floor when I moved in

 This little bungalow with some strange new friends
        C
 -Stay- up too late, and I'm too thin

 We promise each other it's 'til the end
             Am
 -Now we're- spinning empty bottles, it's the five of us

 With pretty eyed-boys girls die to trust
     G
 -I- can't resist the day--no, I can't resist the day...

Verse:
 C
 Jenny screams out and it's no pose

 'Cause when she dances she goes and goes
 C
 Beer through the nose on an inside joke

 I'm so excited, I haven't spoken
       Am
 -And- she's so pretty, and she's so sure

 Maybe I'm more clever than a girl like her
 G
 Summer's all in bloom

 Summer's ending soon...

Chorus:
             F             Am          G
 -It's all-right, and it's nice not to be so alone
F      Am   G            F
 But I hold on to your secrets in
 C     Am  G   C
 White hou-ses

Verse:
C
 Maybe I'm a little bit over my head

 I come undone at the things he said
       C
 -And- he's so funny in his bright red shirt

 We were all in love, and we all got hurt
     Am
 -I- sneak into his car's cracked leather seat

 The smell of gasoline in the summer heat,
              G
 -Boy, we're- going way too fast

 It's all too sweet to last...

Chorus:
             F          Am    G
 -It's all-right, and I put myself in his hands
F      Am   G           F
 But I hold on to his secrets in
 C     Am  G
 White hou-ses
 F        Am          G
 Love, or something ignites in my veins
F      Am       G      F
 And I pray it never fades, in
 C     Am  G
 White hou-ses

Bridge:
F   C      Am      G
 My  first   time,  hard to explain
F           C       Am       G
 Rush of blood, oh,   and a little bit of pain
F        C        Am           G
 On a cloudy day,   it's more common than you think
F     C   Am      G           C
 He's  my   first  mistake...

Interlude: C  C  Am  G

Verse:
C
 Maybe you were all faster than me

 We gave each other up so easily
         C
 -These- silly little wounds will never mend

 I feel so far from where I've been...

Chorus:
           F       Am          G
 -So I- go,  and I will not be back here again
F    Am          G       F
 I'm gone as the day is fading, on
 C     Am  G
 White hou-ses
     F              Am       G
 -I- lied, wrote my injuries all the in dust
F      Am             G        F
 In my heart it's the five of us, in
 C     Am  G
 White hou-ses
       F          Am       G
 -And- you, maybe you'll remember me
F       Am      G         F
 What I gave is yours to keep, in
 C     Am  G    F F
 White hou-ses,     in
 C     Am  G    F F
 White hou-ses,     in
 C     Am  G     C
 White hou-ses...
