Police Station

  G              C                     Em
I saw you at the police station and it breaks my heart to say.
  G                     C                Em
Your eyes had wandered off to something distant, cold and grey.
I guess you didn't see it coming, someone's gotten used to slumming.
Dreaming of the golden years,I see you had to change careers.
Far away, but we both know its somewhere.

  G              C                     Em
I saw you on the back page of some free press yesterday.
 G                     C                Em
The driftwood in your eyes said nothing short of love for pay.
I know you from another picture, of someone with the most conviction.
We used to read the funny papers, fooled around and pulled some capers.
Not today, send a message to her.
A message that I'm coming, coming to pursue her.


F                C                  Asus4 A
Down home country I, rest my face on your bed.
              F           C                        Asus4   A
I got you ten times over I'll, chase you down 'til you're dead.


I saw you on a TV station 
And it made me want to pray
An empty shell of loveliness 
Now dusted with decay
What happened to the funny paper
Smiling was your money maker
Someone ought to situate her
Find a way to educate her
All the way
Time to come and find you
You can't hide from me girl 
So never mind what I do

[Chorus 2]

Down home country 
I rest my face on your bed
I met my soul mate country 
And I left it all for your head


I saw you in the church yard
There was no time to exchange
You were getting married 
And it felt so very strange
I guess I didn't see it coming
Now I guess it's me who's bumming
Dreaming of the golden years
You and I were mixing tears
Not today
Not for me but someone
I never could get used to
So now I will refuse to

[Chorus 2]

Down home country 
I rest my face on your bed
I met my soul mate country
And I left it all for your head
I got my best foot forward 
And I'll chase you down 
'Til you're dead.

About the artist behind Police Station:

The Red Hot Chili Peppers are a Grammy-award winning American alternative rock band formed in Los Angeles, California, in 1983. For most of its career, the band has consisted of vocalist Anthony Kiedis, guitarist John Frusciante, bassist Michael "Flea" Balzary, and drummer Chad Smith. The band's varied musical style has fused traditional rock and funk with various elements of heavy metal, punk rock and psychedelic rock.

In addition to Kiedis and Flea, the group originally featured guitarist Hillel Slovak and drummer Jack Irons. However, Slovak died of a heroin overdose in 1988, resulting in Irons resigning.[1] Irons was replaced briefly by D. H. Peligro, former Dead Kennedys drummer, before the band found a permanent replacement in Chad Smith, while Slovak was replaced by up-and-coming guitarist Frusciante. This lineup recorded the band's fourth and fifth albums, Mother's Milk (1989) and Blood Sugar Sex Magik (1991).

Blood Sugar Sex Magik was a critical success and sold over twelve million copies. However, Frusciante grew increasingly uncomfortable with the band's success and left the band abruptly in 1992. Kiedis, Flea, and Smith employed Dave Navarro of Jane's Addiction for their subsequent album, One Hot Minute (1995). It failed, however, to match the critical acclaim of Blood Sugar Sex Magik and sold fewer than half the copies of its predecessor. Shortly afterwards, Navarro was fired from the band due to creative differences.

Frusciante, while absent from the band, developed a severe drug addiction. In 1998, he completed rehabilitation and, at Flea's request, rejoined the band. The reunited foursome returned to the studio to record Californication (1999), which went on to sell fifteen million units worldwide, becoming their most successful album to date. It was followed three years later with By the Way (2002), which continued their success. In 2006, the group released the double album Stadium Arcadium. The band has won six Grammy Awards.
