   Bm - Em - A - D - D5

Bm             Em                      AM           D      D5 
Your talent outshines all that I could ever do or say
Bm             Em                      AM           D      D5
and me and my jealousy, I stole your songs and passed them off as my own
Bm             Em                      AM           D      D5
As much as I would like for it not to show
Bm                       Em                                      AM           D      D5
you can smell the stink on my breath and in my clothes, it's so obvious

G                        A             Bm 
oh if I could only be half the things you write about in your songs
G                  A             Bm
if I could only mean half as much to anyone

Bm             Em                      AM               D      D5 
and in my arrogance I write pages of anger hate and spite
Bm             Em                      AM           D      D5
all of the reasons I have to trust... absolutely no one
Bm             Em                AM              D      D5
today I heard you on my stereo and it shamed me,
Bm                          Em          AM           D      D5
yes it shamed me to think that I could be so unoriginal

G                        A             Bm 
oh if I could only be half the genius that you are
G                        A             Bm 
to feel such honest want, to show love


I would show you love

Under Solo
Bm        C#   D  Em   A


G                        A              Bm
oh if I could only feel half as resolute in my beliefs,
G                    A                 Bm
if I could only sing with such bravery
G                  A                    Bm                    Bm-A-G-F#
I can not explain how much you mean to me
G                  A                              Bm
without your words, I would be lost.
