 my postureïs kinda good    from my knees     to my feet


*(same as before with these verses)

2- And if I cut my hair    most people they won't stare 
   But if people don't stare,     who will care, who will care 

3- I got me a tatto,       it makes me feel so tough 
   Someone would fight me please God I need to be touched 

4- The closest that I get  to ever feel your kiss 
   I get to take a drag  off a used cigarette 

*(silence)

        Sometimes I think I'm better off dead 
        But then if I'm dead, they'll bury my head 
        If I can't use my lips, can't kiss the air 
        Why kiss the air? 
        (Cause it's the air you breathe)

Here guitar seems to play artificial harmonics all the time(dunno how,
maybe a pedal effect)so I will save the AH. over every note.

*************************** END (enjoy it!)***********************

        Thanx godness I finished.The solo had some parts quite difficult
for me; moreover the artificial harmonics could hurt your ears cause of
the very high frequencies.I hope you could use this, I know sometimes looks
a bit chaotic but the song is very easy, no rare chords, no 100 notes/second
tapping, just a plain Em chord and a suitable solo. Any suggestion or comment
bout this , email me    asc12@alu.um.es    or    nunozowie@mixmail.com  

        By the way, if you see this symbol  ï  itïs supposed to be an
apostrophe but this keyboard hates me.
