Sara Bareilles - Basket Case chords


INTRO
A Gsus2 D A Gsus2 D

VERSE
A Gsus2 D I don't want to talk about it to you
A Gsus2 D I'm not an open book that you can rifle through
A Bm7 Gsus2 Em7 The cold hard truth that you'll see right to
D A Gsus2 I'm just a basket case without you
A Gsus2 DHe's not a magic man or a perfect fit
A Gsus2 D But had a steady hand and I got used to it
A Bm7 Gsus2 Em7 And a glass cage heart and invited me in
D A Gsus2And now I'm just a basket case without him
CHORUS
D Gsus2 You're begging for the truth
Gm D (G/D A/D) So I'm saying it to you
Gsus2 I've been saving your place
Gm And what good does it do
D A Gsus2Now I'm just a basket case
D A Gsus2 Now I'm just a basket case
VERSE
A Gsus2 D I don't say much and it'll stay that way
A Gsus2 DYou got a steel train touch and I'm just a track you lay
A Bm7 Gsus2 Em7 So I'll stay right here underneath you
D A Gsus2I'm just a basket case and that's what we do
CHORUS
D Gsus2 You're begging for the truth
Gm D (G/D A/D) So I'm saying it to you
D Gsus2 I've been saving your place
Gm And what good does it do
D A Gsus2 Now I'm just a basket case
BRIDGE
D Won't somebody come on in and tug at my seams
A Oh send your armies in of robbers and thieves
Bm Gsus2 D/F# Gsus2 A Bm7 A7/C#To steal the state I'm in I don't want it anymore
CHORUS
D Gsus2 You're begging for the truth
Gm D (G/D A/D) So I'm saying it to you
D Gsus2 I've been saving your place
Gm And what good does it do
D A Gsus2 Now I'm just a basket case
D A Gsus2 Now I'm just a basket case
D A Gsus2 Now I'm just a basket case
D A Gsus2 Now I'm just a basket case
