Tuning: Standard

I think this is a cute, catchy little song off of Hope Is Important. It's incredibly 
to play. The playing is pretty sloppy so just throw in a few extra strums every so often 
it'll sound great. Enjoy it and try not to bash it.

That's it. Pretty easy.

Lyrics:

My wintertime came fast.
I bought you a drawing pad.
Then you told me you didn't like a-lookin' closely.
You don't like walking home.
You're not sure who you are.
And no one knows about your scar.

But I told.. Just shut up once.
Because you're never there... and you're too old to be scared.
Cause I've been in lots of these.. bad, bad situations.

Paint nothing now, paint nothing now, paint nothing now.

The summertime came fast.
You still have your drawing pad.
But you told me you couldn't see me correctly.
You don't like holding hands.
You don't like playing guitar.
And no one knows about your scars.

But I've been in.. lots of these.. bad, bad situations
And you'll never get out of this easily now.
Cause I've been in lots of these.. bad bad situations!

Paint nothing now, paint nothing now, paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now, paint nothing now, paint nothing now.

It's in the air. It's in the air. Repetition is in the air.
It's in the air. It's in the air. Repetition is in the air.
Cause I've been in lots of these.. bad bad situations!

Paint nothing now, paint nothing now, paint nothing now.
I'm calling the art schools.
Paint nothing now, paint nothing now, paint nothing now.
I'm in the art schools.
Paint nothing now, paint nothing now, paint nothing now.
Paint nothing now, paint nothing now, paint nothing now...
