G  G/F#  Em7  C9
G  G/F#  Em7  C9


                   G          G/F#
When I'm done with thinking,
                   Em7        C9
then I'm done with you.
                   G          G/F#
When I'm done with crying,
                   Em7        C9
then I'm done with you.
                   G          G/F#
When I feel so tired,
                   Em7        C9
then I'm done with you.
         G                    G/F#
You know everybody feels this way some times
Em7                  C9
Everybody feels this way
      D      G      D
And I do
        G             D        G       D
You can hear it but I do.
        G             Am       C       Am
You can hear it but I do.
C                G             G/F#
You're trying to convince me
                          Em7          C9
that what i've done's not right.
             G            G/F#
And I get so frustrated
                Em7       C9
I stay up every night.
                  G       G/F#
You ask me for an answer
                 Em7
I'm so tired and up in the air
          C9
up in the air
         G                             G/F#
You know everybody feels this way some time
Em7                  C9
Everybody feels this way
      D     G     D
And I do
             G        D      G      D
You can hear it but I do.


             G          Am           C
You can hear it but I'm feeling this way
Am               C
just because you say
G
I will be ignored
    G/F#
And I be denied
    Em7
And I could be erased
           C9
I could be, brushed aside.
Am
I will get scared,
    Am
and I will get shoved down.
    Am
But I feel like I do
            D
because you push me around.
                G           G/F#
I'm starting to ignore you
                          Em7         C9
You know I doubted you so long.
                  G         G/F#
I'm tired of over thinking
                 Em7        C9
I know you don't belong.
                   G          G/F#
And Now i'm asking questions
                 Em7          C9
No one pushes me around.
G                        G/F#
Everybody feels this way somtimes
Em7                  C9
Everybody feels this way
      D     G    D
And I do
        G          D       G      D
You can hear but I do.
               G           Am     C    Am    C
You don't seem angry but I do.

               D         G      D     G
You don't seem angry but I do.
        D        G      D       G

Wishing Heart


   Asus2   Badd4   Asus2    Asus2add6   E (079990)
 
     E                     Asus2           
   No teacher to follow, no prophet to tell me how,
            E                   Asus2
   But I know what I want, I know what I want now.
           E        
   Like water, it rushes,
               Asus2                          E
   it's the last thing you see when you close your eyes,
               E
   it's the one place you want to be.
   
                Asus2                             Badd4
   But if it doesn't brush my shoulder, and it doesn't beat my heart,
      E                                 Badd4
   that's not what I want, no that's not where I will start.
     Asus2                         Badd4
   I never kissed somebody so that they would break my heart,
   Asus2                      A#4sus2      A5sus2
   that's not what I want.
        
        E (x09990)
   If you don't know what you're missing
             Asus2
   cause you don't know where to start,
   Asus2
   follow your wishing heart.
   
   
   E (07999x)
   I was restless,
      I was restless,
   Asus2
   I was restless,
      I was restless.
             E (07999x)
   I just want this to be good,
          Asus2
   I just want this to be good.
    

      E
   but you don't understand,
          Asus2                E                Asus2
   you don't understand me, and I want to be understood.
                Asus2     
   But if it doesn't brush my shoulder,
             Badd4
   and it doesn't beat my heart,
      E                                  Asus2   
   that's not what I want, no, that's not where I will start.
      Asus2                           Badd4
   I never kissed somebody so that they would break my heart,
      Asus2                      A#4sus2   A5sus2
   that's not what I want.
   
   
       E (x7999x)     Asus2                   E
   And if we all leap before we crawl, we might fall,

                E            Asus2             E
   and it's not always candy spun from head to heart,
                   E               Asus2
   and it's not always meant to be,
                             Eadd4 (022200)
   and it's not always up to me.

       I wish that I could belong here, with you, and just be.
   C#m                B            E
       but that's not all that I'm about to do.

Firecracker


      B5              G               A               B5             

  You want to        suffer to       show me your    angry
  Fight with your    fists up or call for your   mummy
  You want to        suffer to       show me your    angry
  Spend time alone find a     stick in the    basement
  Drink water &   gold dust and   live on impatience
  Slaughtered for    weakness electric like   static
  Slaughtered your   weak there's no need to speak


 You change your shoelaces, I light firecrackers
 You step on the spark
 You change your sholaces, I light firecrackers

 I shouldn't be any inspiration
 I never got in your way
 I should never have to chase you
 I was the one who got away
 If you could feel the pain your confusion has caused me
You would have stopped before you spoke
Listening to lies, the pain does'nt suit me
The gift that you gace me, I put it away
I could'nt look at it, made me think of you
You get in the way

You change your shoelaces, I light firecrackers
 You step on the spark
 You change your sholaces, I light firecrackers

Spend time alone, find a stick in the basement
Drink water and gold dust and die of impatience
Electric liek static, and no need to speak
It's not right, but it's not wrong
So I wrote this song
I wrote this song - is that what you want
You got what you wnat - does it make you feel better?
With a smirk on your face and a gun at my head
You come to my place and ask to be fed 

You change your shoelaces, I light firecrackers
You step on the spark
You change your sholaces, I light firecrackers
You get in the way

You get in the way

You want to suffer and show me you're angry
Fight with your fists up or call for your mommy
You want to suffer and show me you're angry
