Am
Smoking cigarettes in a strip mall parking lot
Dm
There’s nothing to do around here but hang out
C                               G
Isn’t that just like everywhere else?
Am
There’s a war veteran standing by the interstate on-ramp
Dm
Yeah, he’s asking for a ride; he’s hoping for a kick down
C                              G
Anything you can spare to give helps


(chorus)
           F                 C
And as the southwest Florida sun sets
    (C)           G/B           Am
The sky’s painted hues pink and orange
C   G/B            Am
All directions are calling
        G             Am
Life is waiting to be ruined
        G             Am
Life is waiting to be ruined

Am
City cops come down and they bust up the party
Dm
We go to a diner, we drink bitter black coffee
C                                              G
Gas station billboard reads three forty-nine a gallon
Am
We’re coming down from the high, we’re starting to sober up
Dm                                                                 C
Boys crushing on girls crushing on boys into the southwest Florida morning
             G
We are still young

(chorus)
           F                 C
And as the southwest Florida sun sets
    (C)            G/B           Am
The sky’s painted hues pink and orange
C   G/B            Am
All directions are calling
        G             Am
Life is waiting to be ruined
        G             Am
Life is waiting to be ruined
        G             C G Am
Life is waiting to be ruined
