I never needed anything more

But I can see us lost in the memory
Chord diagramAmaj7Amaj7                                Chord diagramF#m7F#m7
August slipped away into a moment in time
                    Chord diagramBB
'Cause it was never mine
    Chord diagramE MajorE
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
Chord diagramAmaj7Amaj7                               Chord diagramF#m7F#m7
August sipped away like a bottle of wine

'Cause you were never mine

Your back beneath the sun
                Chord diagramF# minorF#m
Wishin' I could write my name on it
Chord diagramE MajorE            Chord diagramAmaj7Amaj7                Chord diagramF#m7F#m7
Will you call when you're back at school?
           Chord diagramF# minorF#m
I remember thinkin' I had you


Chorus:
    Chord diagramE MajorE
But I can see us lost in the memory
Chord diagramAmaj7Amaj7                                Chord diagramF#m7F#m7
August slipped away into a moment in time
                    Chord diagramBB
'Cause it was never mine
    Chord diagramE MajorE
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
Chord diagramAmaj7Amaj7                               Chord diagramF#m7F#m7
August sipped away like a bottle of wine
                      Chord diagramBB
'Cause you were never mine

Back when we were still changin' for the better
             Chord diagramF# minorF#m
Wanting was enough

For me, it was enough
                Chord diagramE MajorE
To live for the hope of it all
                       Chord diagramAmaj7Amaj7
Canceled plans just in case you'd call
                             Chord diagramF# minorF#m
And say, "Meet me behind the mall"
                       Chord diagramBB
So much for summer love and saying "us"
                   Chord diagramE MajorE            Chord diagramAmaj7Amaj7
'Cause you weren't mine to lose

You weren't mine to lose, oh

'Cause it was never mine
    Chord diagramE MajorE
And I can see us twisted in bedsheets
