Natasha Bedingfield – Pirate Bones chords

Left handed
Pirate Bones
Intro     C   Em   Bm

Verse 1
Em BmWhat if I squeeze myself into any shape and I still don't fit?
EmWhat if I bend myself so much that I break and I can't mend it?
D BmWhat if I burn so bright that the fire goes out and I can't stay lit?
CWhat's the point in it?
Em BmI could get good at crying crocodile tears just to get along
Em BmI could carry on telling you wanna hear 'til my voice is gone
D BmBut if I finally get to the place that I think is home and I don't belong
CWhat's the point in it? Where's the benefit? When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it
EmIt's not worth having if it's too much to hold
Bm7You can dig so deep that you're left with a hole
Em Bm7Thirsty in a desert with a bag full of gold
EmDon't wanna end up like pirate bones
Bm7What I thought was precious was just a pile o' stones
Em Bm7I might have the treasure but I'd be lying alone
EmJust a pile of pirate bones
Bm7 EmIf I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
Bm7If it's something I stole it ain't worth having
Verse 2
Em BmWhat if I stake everything I am on a dream and it's counterfeit?
Em BmIf I reach the end that justifies the means could I live with it?
D BmAnd if it's true that having too much of any good thing could only make me sick
CWhat's the point in it? Where's the benefit? When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it.
Oh, oh Chorus Verse 3
Am Em/GIt's not worth that much to me if losing out is what it means
DTo swim in shallow victory
CIs empty, empty
Am Em/GIt's just not worth the price it's only a fools paradise
D C Bm7
~B7If it's draining every drop of life 'til I'm dry like pirate bones
