sorry, don't know how accurate this is, but really i only did this to write out 
fully the first version, thankyou to the unregistered person who did the chords first. 
F             C
I walk down my street at night
         G
The city lights are cold 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


The ghetto boys are catcalling me
As I pull my keys from my pocket
I wonder if this method of courtship
Has ever been effective
Has any girl in history said
Sure, you seem so nice, let's get it on
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                           F5
And even if I went with you I'm not the girl you think I am
F            C
And I'm not gonna match you
F             C
'Cause I'll lose my voice completely yeah
G                 F5
I'm just gonna watch you
G                 F5
'Cause I'm not the one that's crazy
Yeah

I have wasted years of my life
Agonizing up at the fires
It started when I thought that to be strong you must be flame retardant
And now to dress the wounds cause into question
How authentic they are
There is always someone criticizing me 
She just likes paying hospital
Lying in my bed
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
The daisies all push up'n
Pairs to the horizons
Your hands full of ketchup
It's nice that you're trying
The headstone's all ready
All carved up and pretty
Your sick satisfaction 
Those his and hers matching
The daises all push up'n
Pairs to the horizons
Your eyes full of ketchup
It's nice that you're trying

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

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

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