C Asus2 AmWhat occupies me pays a low rent
C Asus2 AmBecause fondness makes the heart grow absent
G F C/EThese things I say may seem to be cruel
G F C/E /C /B to show you something from my heart to you:
Am G* D7/F# Fmaj7lookin' at you reminds me of looking at the sun
Am/C Am/G and how the blind are so damn
lucky|------||-1-1--||-0h2--||-0h2--| repeat a few times|-x-x--| listen to the album for timing and bass notes|-1-1--|
C Asus2 AmThose holes on yr face could be used better ways
C Asus2 Ambreathing's a distraction when you chatter away
G F C/Ethese things I say may seem to be lies
G F C/Eto seem risque or sensationalize
C Asus2 Ambut too many people can remember yr name
C Asus2 Amalways walking you down Memory Lame
G F C/Ethese things I say may seem to offend
G F C/E /C /Bbut not half as much as I'd like to intend
Am G* D7/F# Fmaj7'Cause listenin' to you reminds me of a motor's endless drone
Am/C Am/G Fmaj7 (same as before)and how the deaf are so damn lucky
C Asus2 AmI could be happy if life came to a stall
C Asus2 Amthen I wouldn't need my senses at all
G F C/EThese things I say may seem out of line
G F C/E /C /Bbut day to day I'm right every time
Am G* D7/F# Fmaj7 Am/C Am/G'cause lookin' at you reminds me of looking at the sun
Fmaj7 (again with the hammer-ons on the same frets just different rhythm) too long
and then:|--0-0-0-0--||--0h1-1-1--||--0-0-0-0--| once again, follow album for timing|--2-2-2-2--||--3-3-3-3--||-----------|
(w/ hammer-ons)
Fmaj7You'll find that in no time
Cyou'll be talkin' to yrself along w/ everybody else
Fmaj7then you'll despise the look in their eyes
Cit may be difficult to tell when yr looking at yrself
Fmaj7 C
Fmaj7And you look fine if you don't mind
Cthe empty look that on yr face, a black hole that's outta place
Fmaj7And out of time in a tight bind
Cyou'll find something smart to say when a silence come yr way
(this part is hard to decipher, just play ugly chords, I guess) (this is what I do:) 1X221X X0231X X1221X X2332X X2343X C /C /B
