What Are You Listening To?

VERSE
I put that record on, girl you know what song,       [A]/[A]
And I let it play again and again.       [B]/[B]
You’re in every line, takes me back in time,       [C]/[C]
Yeah tonight I’m wondering . . .       [D]

CHORUS
What are you listening to?       [E]
Is it a cover band in some college town bar?       [F]
Where it’s na-na-na’s and air guitars,       [F]
Or is it something to get you through.       [E]
Just a sad song playing on the radio station,       [G]
Tears still fall and hearts still breakin’       [G]
Cause you’re hanging on, or is it a love song       [H]/[H]
About someone new?       [E]
What are you listening to?       [E]

VERSE
I like to believe that you’re just like me,       [I]/[I]
Trying to figure out how a good thing goes bad.       [J]/[J]
I don’t know, I can’t let it go.       [K]/[K]
Yeah it’s about to drive me mad.       [J]/[J]

CHORUS
What are you listening to?       [E]
Is it a cover band in some college town bar?       [F]
Where it’s na-na-na’s and air guitars,       [F]
Or is it something to get you through.       [E]
Just a sad song playing on the radio station,       [G]
Tears still fall and hearts still breakin’       [G]
Cause you’re hanging on, or is it a love song       [H]/[H]
About someone new?       [E]
What are you listening to?       [E]

CHORUS
What are you listening to?       [E]
Is it a feel good song, gets you driving too fast?       [F]
The one that gets you moving on pass to pass ,      [F]
Or the kind you can’t help singing along – Singing whoa.       [E]
Is it headphones on on a downtown train,       [L]
Or a window seat on an outbound plane?       [L]
Is it LA sunny and Memphis blue?       [M]
I wish I knew, I wish I knew.       [M]

CHORUS
What are you listening to?       [E]
Is it a cover band in some college town bar?       [F]
Where it’s na-na-na’s and air guitars,       [F]
Or is it something to get you through.       [E]
Just a sad song playing on the radio station,       [G]
Tears still fall and hearts still breakin’       [G]
Cause you’re hanging on, or is it a love song       [H]/[H]
About someone new?       [E]
What are you listening to?       [E]

OUTTRO
I put that record on, girl you know what song,       [A]/[A]
And I let it play again and again.       [B]/[B]
