The Ataris - So Long Astoria

Intro
D G Bm A x3

Verse w/intro
It was the first snow of the season
I can almost see you breathin
In the middle of that empty street
Sometimes I still see myself
In that lonesome bedroom
Playin my guitar
And singing songs of hope
For a better future

Chorus
Em      F#m  G                             Bm 
   Life is only as good as the memories we make
               A
And I'm taking back what belongs to me
Em           F#m            G                           Bm
Polaroids of classrooms unattended, these relics of remembrence
              A                        Em
Are just like shipwrecks, only they're gone faster
         G       A      w/intro
Than the smell after it rains

Verse
Last night while everyone was sleepin
I tripped through my old neighborhood
And resurrected memories from ashes
We said that we would never
We were really just like them
Does rebellion ever make a difference

Chorus
Life is only as good as the memories we make
And I m taking back what belongs to me
Polaroids of classrooms unattended, these relics of remembrence
Are just like shipwrecks, only theyre gone faster
                        D       D/C#  Bm  G  A
Than the smell after it rains

Outro
D        D/C#
So long astoria
  Bm             A           
I found a map to buried treasure
    Em                         A
And even if we come home empty handed

w/outro
We'll still have our stories
Of battle scars, pirate ships and wounded hearts,
Broken bones, and all the best of friendships
And when this hourglass has filtered out
Its final grain of sand, I raise my glass to the memories we had
        D        D/C#
This is my wish
                   Bm
And I'm takin them back
    A              G
I'm takin them all back
