CAPO FRET#1 (transpose key Eb)

VinEmtage tee, brand new phoneA

High heels on cobblestonGes

When you are young they assume

you know notAhing

SeqEmuin smile, black lipstickA

Sensual politicsG

When you are young they

assume you know nothAing


ButD I knew you

Dancing in your LeviA’s

Drunk under a streetlightG

I knew you

Hand under my sweatAshirt

Baby kiss it better

AndEm when I felt

like I was an old cardAigan

under someone’s bed

YouG put me on

and said I was your favAorite


A fEmriend to all is a friend to noneA

Chase two girls, lose the oneG

When you are young

they assume you know nothAing


ButD I knew you

Playing hide-and-seekA

and Giving me your weekendsG

I knew you

Your heartbeat on the HighA Line

Once in twenty lifetimes

AndG when I felt

like I was an old carBmdigan

under someone’s bed

YouD put me on

and said I was your favGorite

INSTRO : G|Bm|A|G

To kiss in carsG and downtown bars

Was all we needBmed

You drew starAs around my scars

But now I’m bleedGing


CauseD I knew you

Stepping on the lastA train

Marked me like a bloodstainG

I knew you

Tried to change the endAing

Peter losing Wendy

I kDnew you

Leaving like a fatAher

Running like water

WhenG you are young they

assume you know nothAing


But I knewD you’d linger like a tattoo kiss

I knew you’d haunAt all of my what-ifs

The smell of smokGe

would hang around this long

Cause I knew eveArything

when I was young


I knew I’d curseD

you for the longest time

Chasing shaAdows

in the grocery line

I knew you’d missG

me once the thrill expired

And you’d be standAing

in my front porch light


And I knew you’d come backEm to me

You’d come backA to me

And you’d come backG to me

And you’d come backA

AndG when I felt like I was

an old carBmdigan

Under someone’s bed

YouD put me on

and said I was your favGorite

cardigan LYRICS

CAPO FRET#1 (transpose key Eb)

Vintage tee, brand new phone
High heels on cobblestones
When you are young they assume
you know nothing
Sequin smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young they
assume you know nothing

But I knew you
Dancing in your Levi’s
Drunk under a streetlight
I knew you
Hand under my sweatshirt
Baby kiss it better
And when I felt
like I was an old cardigan
under someone’s bed
You put me on
and said I was your favorite

A friend to all is a friend to none
Chase two girls, lose the one
When you are young
they assume you know nothing

But I knew you
Playing hide-and-seek
and Giving me your weekends
I knew you
Your heartbeat on the High Line
Once in twenty lifetimes
And when I felt
like I was an old cardigan
under someone’s bed
You put me on
and said I was your favorite
INSTRO
To kiss in cars and downtown bars
Was all we needed
You drew stars around my scars
But now I’m bleeding

Cause I knew you
Stepping on the last train
Marked me like a bloodstain
I knew you
Tried to change the ending
Peter losing Wendy
I knew you
Leaving like a father
Running like water
When you are young they
assume you know nothing

But I knew you’d linger like a tattoo kiss
I knew you’d haunt all of my what-ifs
The smell of smoke
would hang around this long
Cause I knew everything
when I was young

I knew I’d curse
you for the longest time
Chasing shadows
in the grocery line
I knew you’d miss
me once the thrill expired
And you’d be standing
in my front porch light

And I knew you’d come back to me
You’d come back to me
And you’d come back to me
And you’d come back
And when I felt like I was
an old cardigan
Under someone’s bed
You put me on
and said I was your favorite
