Demons (The National)

G D G 1. When I think of you in the city, D The sight of you among the sites. G I get this sudden sinking feeling, D Of a man about to fly. C Never kept me up before, D Now I've been awake for days. C I can't fight it anymore, D I'm going through an awkward phase. 2. I am secretly in love with, Everyone that I grew up with. Do my crying underwater, I can't get down any farther. All my drowning friends can see, Now there is no running from it. It's become the crux of me, I wish that I could rise above it. G R: But I stay down, D With my demons. G I stay down, D With my demons. 3. Passing buzzards in the sky, Alligators in the sewers. I don't even wonder why, Hide among the under views. Huddle with them all night long, The worried talk to god goes on. I sincerely tried to love it, Wish that I could rise above it. G R: But I stay down, D With my demons. G I stay down, D With my demons. C I stay down, D With my demons. C I stay down, D With my demons. I stay down, With my demons. Em 4. Can I stay here? I can sleep D On the floor Em Paint the blood and hang the palms, D On the door. Em D Do not think I'm going places anymore, Em D Wanna see the sun come up above New York. Am Oh, everyday I start so great, D Then the sunlight dims. Am Less I've learned, D The more I see the pythons and the limbs. Am Do not know what's wrong with me, D Sours in the cup. Am When I walk into a room, D I do not light it up. F Fuck. Em R: So I stay down, D With my demons. Em I stay down, D With my demons. Am I stay down, D With my demons. Am I stay down, D With my demons.
