F                 C
I walk down my street at night
     G
The city lights are strange and violent
F           C             G
I am comforted by the approaching sounds of trucks and sirens
F                C
Even though the world's so bad
       G
These men rush out to help the dying
      F             C
And though I am no use to them
  G
I do my part by simply smiling


[repeat intro or F   C   G   G x2]


      F              C
The ghetto boys are catcalling me
G
As I pull my keys from my pocket
F             C             G
I wonder if this method of courtship

Has ever been effective
    F            C 
Has any girl in history said
 G
Sure, you seem so nice, let's get it on?
  F              C                G
Still, I always shock them when I answer

Hi, my name's Amanda,

    F                              C
and I'm not gonna live my life on one side of an ampersand
    G                            F
and even if I went with you I'm not the girl you think I am
    F
and I'm not gonna match you
            C
cause I'll lose my voice completely yeah
G
I'm just gonna watch you
           F
Cause I'm not the one that's crazy


[repeat intro or F   C   G   G x2]


F              C
I have wasted years of my life
G
Agonizing up at the fires
     F              C                   G
It started when I thought that to be strong you must be flame retardant
     F                 C                G
And now to dress the wounds cause into question

How authentic they are
         F                  C       G
There is always someone criticizing me

She just likes paying hospital
 F    C      G
Lying in my bed
     F       C       G
I remember what you said

There's no such thing as accidents

                    Am
But you've got the headstone all ready
     C
All carved up and pretty
      G
Your sick satisfaction
       F
Those his and hers matching
     Am
The daisies all push up'n
  C
Pairs to the horizons
      G
Your hands full of ketchup
      F
It's nice that you're trying
     Am
The headstone's all ready
     C
All carved up and pretty
      G
Your sick satisfaction
       F
Those his and hers matching
     Am
The daises all push up'n
  C
Pairs to the horizons
      G
Your eyes full of ketchup
      F
It's nice that you're trying

     F                             C
and I'm not gonna live my life on one side of an ampersand
    G                            F
and even if I went with you I'm not the girl you think I am
     F
and I'm not gonna match you
            C
cause I'll lose my voice completely yeah
G
I'm just gonna watch you
           F
Cause I'm not the one that's crazy

Yeah...
     F
I'm not the one that's crazy

Yeah...

F             C
As I wake up to a cough
      G
The blaze consumed the block
                 F             C
But poetically stopped at my apartment
         G
And my housemates are all sleeping soundly
     F      C
And nobody deserves to die
     G
But you were awful adamant
     F            C
That if I didn't love you
          G
Then you have just one alternative

    F
And I may be romantic
    C
And I may risk my life for it
    G
But I ain't gonna die for you
      F
You know I ain't no Juliet
    F                                  C
And I'm not gonna watch you while you burn yourself out baby
   G
No I'm not gonna stop you
           F                                  C   G   F
Cause I'm not the one that's crazy, yeah
                                              C   G   F
I'm not the one that's crazy, yeah
                                             (C)
I'm not the one that's crazy...
