Wye Oak – If Children Were Wishes Live chords

Chords
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
GIf children were wishes
Em7 D D6My mother spent hers on impossible things
C*My brother was money
D*My sister was love
GAnd I was world peace
[Verse 2]
GMy brother, he spent it
Em7 DMy sister got pregnant
D6And all that I'm worth
C*Will only come true
D* GWhen there are no more of us left on this earth
[Hook]
GOoh
Em7 D D6Ooh, ooh, ooh
C* D* GOoh, ooh, ooh
[Verse 3]
GIf hearts were machines that kept
Em7 D D6Running forever automatically
C*Then you wouldn't be in that
D* GHospital bed, on that saline I-V
[Verse 4]
GAnd if it's your diet
Em7 D D6You stubbornly swear that it wasn't your fault
C*You rather be dead in that hospital bed
D* GThan cut back on sugar and salt
[Hook]
GOoh
Em7 D D6Ooh, ooh, ooh
C* D* GOoh, ooh, ooh
[Verse 5]
GOh, weren't you afraid of
Em7 D D6Living in a major American city
C*So you marry a stupid
D* GUnreachable girl who's impossibly pretty
[Verse 6]
G Em7 DAnd I've seen you drive everyday of your life
D6And it's always a rush
C*And I have to wonder
GHow I ever let you do something so dangerous
[Verse 7]
GAnd so I suppose
Em7This is just how it goes no matter how I try
DI just have to watch you
D* GGet weaker and weaker 'till you finally die
[Verse 8]
GBut I have to remember
Em7 D D6The wish of my mother and all that I'm worth
C*Which will only come true
D* GWhen there are no more of us left on this earth
[Hook]
GOoh
Em7 D D6Ooh, ooh, ooh
C* D* GOoh, ooh, ooh
