A key in the door, a step on the floor

A note on the table and a meal in the micro
E                         G                                                Gm

Shoe box of lies

It's under my bed, it's never been read
It's in with my school stuff and my mom never cleans there
From my first little fib, when I still wore a bib

You're so nineteen-ninety, and it's nineteen-ninety-four
Leave this world behind me 'cause you don't want me anymore
