Found a few incorrect chord sheets for this song, which, in my opinion, is the 
best song on Tape Deck Heart. So, hope you enjoy! Comment and correct as you see need.

Piano/Synth Intro:

The bands I like, they don't sell too many records
And the girls I like, they don't kiss too many boys
Books I read will never be best sellers, yeah
But come on fellas at least we made our choice, hey!

Verse: palm muted leading up to the pre-chorus

A                   E          D
     What do we want?
D                              A
     And when do we want it?
                 E                    D       
And how would we feel if we knew that    we were never gunna get it?
A                      E          D
    And where did we start from?
D                                 A
    And where are we going?       
                E                           D
Can anyone here say with any certainty that they know what they're doing?



Pre-Chorus:

E                                            D
Ever feel like an awkward understudy thrown into a cast where you just don't get along?
E                                                      D
Crowd and the crew all standing silent staring and you can't shake the feeling that somehow 
                    A   E   D
you're doing it wrong
            A    E   D
What do we want

e----------------------------------------|
b----------------------------------------|
g--9-9-9-9---9-9-9-9---7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7---|
d--7-7-7-7---6-6-7-6---4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4---| X2

Verse 2:

A           E   D
    Mum and dad   always seem like that had a plan
A                   E                    D
    Everything fell apart when mum moved on, now dad's a broken man
A                 E          D
    And all these decisions    that keep getting made
A                    E               D
    I can't remember making them and nobody wants to explain


Pre-Chorus:

E                                                  D
We're all awkward understudies wearing comfortable shoes getting comfortable with doing it wrong
E                                                                 D
Missed the dress rehearsals and we had to rush a drink before the show but now it's show time and 

we're singing our song!

        E                        D             A

A

    E                          D        A
But come on fellas at least we made our choice

    A

        E                        D             A
And the girls I like, they don't kiss too many boys
A

Fall in love with every person who ever made your heart want to skip a beat

Tag:


Hey, hey!
            A                        E          
Because the lives we lead, they will be so very perfect
        D                     
And the plans we make made us serve some kind of purpose
        A                    E
But the hearts we meet still beat the way they used to
          D                                           
If you're doing it wrong, well yeah what you gunna do?

A E D
