Or crack up. Is there anything that I can do 

Anything to show you

Baby, You're a bitch 
D C 
Hey Hey Hey Hey 
G 
You make me sick 
D C 
But, Don't ever go away G D 
So you tell me that there's nothing left to say 
C 
I drive you face the window 
G 
Then you're in my face telling me to grow up

I wish you'd grow up

I can't wait until you fall asleep, I wonder if you know that (chorus)

Pictures He Drew 

E B C# D 

He got up this morning 

Rolled out of bed 

And went out to change the world 

Her head on his shoulder 

He settles her down 

It all started over and over again 
E B C# D 
(w/effects)
E B 
His mom made him breakfast 
A 
Gets on the bus Goes out to see the world 
E B A 
He lies on the ground, wipes blood from his nose 
E 
Wonders why he's the one that doesn't fit In 
(chorus)
E B 
The pictures he drew 
A D 
But if only they told him 
E B 
You're never gonna be like anyone 
C# D 
And that's okay 
E 
Give into your feelings 
B A D 
Don't give in to the ones that will own ya 
E B C# D 
Sometimes they just don't go away 
(w/effects)
E B A 
Six double martinis, a night on the town 

It sure makes the mornings long 
E B A 
He never imagined a life time like this would be 
E 
The only thing to let him get in Break down: 
A B 
He gets up 
E 
He falls down 
A 
Wishes he could get the nerve to end it all now 
A B 
He picks up the phone 
E 
And he slams it down 

And swallows another 
A 
Now he'll never come around 
A B 
It's all or none 
C 
It's one for one 
You can make it 
D
But ya' gotta do it all for yourself

And now I wish it wasn't quite as clear.A B A B 
Cause I am starting to forget now

It dissappears so fast 
A B E 
I'm waiting for "the Question" to be asked. 
A B 
And if you saw me now 
A B 
you'd not be dissappointed 
A 
somehow I've gotten to a point

and I'm not ever coming back

my minds made up I'm staying for as long as it has taken(to get)

Close to you, I just want, Close to you and

It takes me some time to realize.

Lately I, 
A B E 


Have really wished that you were still around.

Here to pick me up off of the ground.
