Verse 1:
Fmaj7/C                          C
I think i'm going to work construction 
             G              Am
Just to make something of myself 
        Fmaj7/C                  C              G
I can't live off these childhood trophies on my shelf 
  Fmaj7/C              C 
I want to get my hands dirty 
                 G             Am
I want to feel a burning in my legs 
       Fmaj7/C           C              G
I want more than the receipt for what i paid 

Chorus:
        Am        G
Because everybody loves something new 
               Fmaj7/C             C
'cause you can open it and plug it in 
       Am                G
And it feels like a good night's sleep 
                       Fmaj7/C       C
Like the girl you like paid you a compliment 
                  G          Am                G               Fmaj7/C
They can keep the change and they can keep 'em coming they can talk to 
           G
who's listening 
C         G           Am          G       Fmaj7/C     C
I'm still looking for something a little more permanent 

Verse 2:
Fmaj7/C       C
I am not a poet 
            G                 Am
Show me the easy way and i'll do it 
             Fmaj7/C                 C              G
No one could ever say that i've been trying way too hard 
Fmaj7/C                C
Everything that i have ever owned 
    G         Am  G
Got dusty and old 
     Fmaj7/C              C                 G
So i threw it out just to make myself some room 

Chorus:
         Am          G
I'm like everybody i love something new 
               Fmaj7/C             C
'cause you can open it and plug it in 
       Am                G
And it feels like a good night's sleep 
                       Fmaj7/C       C
Like the girl you like paid you a compliment 
                  G          Am                G               Fmaj7/C
They can keep the change and they can keep 'em coming they can talk to 
           G
who's listening 
C         G           Am             G    Fmaj7/C   C
I'm still looking for something that I can die with 

Verse 3:
Fmaj7/C               C
If my luck is running out 
             G                 Am
Please don't let it be so with love 
G           Fmaj7/C               C             G
It's been a long year but i'm not ready to give up 
Fmaj7/C           C
Even if I lay ten million bricks 
         G                            Am
And they break through the summer haze 
G            Fmaj7/C         C                       G
Someone will come around and bulldoze them down some day Ohhhhh

Chorus: 
        Am        G
Because everybody loves something new 
        Fmaj7/C          C
You get rid of what came before 
       Am                G
And it feels like a long hot shower 
                     Fmaj7/C                 C
Like getting in your bed when the sheets are warm 
                 G                Am               G          Fmaj7/C
So they can keep construction and they can keep em coming and I wont be 
   G
listening 
      C G     Am          G          Fmaj7/C  G
Cause I found something a little more permanent 
        C G     Am           G    Fmaj7/C  C
Oh yes, I found someone that I can die with

C  G  Am  G  Fmaj7/C  C
