C(Hold it)

The fountain was off.
            G                                           C
This is the first time I've been back to the city in months.
                                    G
I'm trying to hold it together but irony's found cracks in the foundation.

C(Hold it)
And you know,
G
I try so hard to be some great white hope
E    C    G   D G  D   G     
But I can't shake the feeling that tonight I'm gonna end up shaking in bed alone.

Chorus:
E                   D
I'm not a self-help book; I'm just a fucked up kid.
G                                 E
I had to take my own advice and I did.
D                     G
Now I'm waiting for it to sink in.
E          D             G
Expect me standing tall, back against the wall, 'cause what I learned was
E              D
It's not about forcing happiness;
G
It's about not letting the sadness win.

C    G    C   G

C
I don't have roses in the closet

      G
But I've got pictures in a drawer

      C
It's everything left in me
       G
Not to stare at them anymore.
  C                             G
I walked upstairs and shaved my beard.
            C
I felt like I was holding sadness here
G
(I was holding sadness here)


C    G    C   G (Emphasis on the highest strings, you can figure it out.)

I'm not a self-help book; I'm just a fucked up kid.
G                                 E
I had to take my own advice and I did.
D                     G
Now I'm waiting for it to sink in.
E          D             G
Expect me standing tall, back against the wall, 'cause what I learned was
E              D
It's not about forcing happiness;
G
It's about not letting the sadness win.

(You can hold these out if you wish)
C
I don't have roses in the closet

But I've got pictures in a drawer

It's everything left in me
       G
Not to stare at them anymore.
