Courtney Barnett – Elevator Operator chords

Chords:
Transpose:
E Oliver Paul, twenty years old
AThick head of hair, worries he's going bald
E Wakes up at quarter past nine
AFair evades his way down the 96 tram line
EBreakfast on the run again, he's well aware
A E A E A He's dropping soy linseed Vegemite crumbs everywhere
E Feeling sick at the sight of his computer
AHe dodges his way through the Swanston commuters
ERips off his tie, hands it to a homeless man
A ESleeping in the corner of a metro bus stand and he screams
"I'm not going to work today
AGoing to count the minutes that the trains run late
E A E F#m7/9 G A Sit on the grass building pyramids out of Coke cans"
EHeadphone wielding to the Nicholas building
AHe trips on a pothole that's not been filled in
E He waits for an elevator, one to nine
AA lady walks in and waits by his side
EHer heels are high and her bag is snakeskin
AHair pulled so tight you can see her skeleton
EVickers perfume on her breath
AA tortoise shell necklace between her breasts
EShe looks him up and down with a botox frown
AHe's well used to that look by now
E F#m7/9 G AThe elevator dings and they awkwardly step in
E F#m7/9 G ATheir fingers touch on the rooftop button
E A* G6Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof
E A* G6You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth
E A* G6 E A* G6I'd give anything to have skin like you
EHe said "I think you're projecting the way that you're feeling
AI'm not suicidal, just idling insignificantly
EI come up here for perception and clarity
AI like to imagine I'm playing SimCity
E F#m7/9 G AAll the people look like ants from up here
E F#m7/9 G AAnd the wind's the only traffic you can hear"
E F#m7/9 G AHe said "All I ever wanted to be
E F#m7/9 G AWas an elevator operator, can you help me please?"
E A* G6Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof
E A* G6You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth
E A* G6 E A* G6I'd give anything to have skin like you
E A* G6Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof
E A* G6You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth
E A* G6 E A* G6I'd give anything to have skin like you
E F#m7/9 G A E F#m7/9 G A E F#m7/9 G A E F#m7/9 G A
