Rilo Kiley – A Better Son Daughter Acoustic chords

This is how I play this song on my acoustic guitar. I put a CAPO on the 4th fret. 
It suits my voice nicely, but don't be afraid to move it around to your liking :-)

G C GSometimes in the morning i am petrified and can't move
C G DAwake but cannot open my eyes
G C GAnd the weight is crushing down on my lungs i know i can't breath
C G DAnd hope someone will help me this time
G C GYour mother's still calling you insane and high
C G DSwearing it's different this time
G C GAnd you tell her to give in to the demons that possess her
C G DAnd that god ever blessed her insides
G C GThen you hang up the phone and feel badly for upsetting things
C G DAnd crawl back into bed to dream of a time
G C G CWhen your heart was open wide and you loved things just because
G DLike the sick and the dying
G C GAnd sometimes when you're on you're really fucking on
C G DAnd your friends they sing along and they love you
G C GBut the lows are so extreme that the good seems fucking cheap
C G DAnd it teases you for weeks in its absense
G But you'll fight and you'll make it through
C GYou'll fake it if you have to
C G DAnd you'll show up for work with a smile
GAnd you'll be be better you'll be smarter
C GMore grown up and a better daughter
C G DOr son and a real good friend
GAnd you'll be awake and you'll be alert
C GYou'll be positive though it hurts
C G DAnd you'll laugh and embrace all your friends
GAnd you'll be a real good listener
C GYou'll be honest you'll be brave
C GYou'll be handsome you'll be beautiful
DYou'll be happy
G,C,G,C,G,D X2
GYour ship may be coming in
C GYou're weak but not giving in
C G D To the cries and the wails of the valley below
GYour ship may be coming in
C GYou're weak but not giving in
C G DAnd you'll fight it you'll go out fighting all of them
