Verse 1:
            F5                         Bb5
I have this dream that I am hitting my dad with a baseball bat
          C5                           Bb5
And he is screaming and crying for help
          F5                     Bb5
And maybe halfway through it has more to do with me killing him
        C5                    Bb5
Then it ever did protecting myself
      F5                                      Bb5
And I believe that yeah, dad, maybe no one is perfect
      C5                                 Bb5
But I believe that you were pushing your luck
        F5
It just sucks it played out like this
  Bb5                        C5                 Bb5
A terrible movie none of the actors even give a fuck

Pre-chorus:
             D5               C5
But you look good tonight girlfriend,
                     Bb5
Can I sleep in your bed?
           D5               C5
And when I crawl out in the morning,
      F5               Bb5   C5
Can I stay inside your head?
 
Chorus:
                Bb5    C5  D5
'Cause you were high school
    F5*                       Bb5*
And I was just more like real life
             Bb5   C5        D5
And you were okay, okay as a girlfriend
    F5*                      Bb5*
But I was just more like his wife
           Bb5  C5
And it was okay
              D5
I'll wear the makeup
            F5*               Bb5*
I'll do whatever he wants all night
                Bb5  C5     D5
'Cause you were okay   as a girlfriend
    F5*                      Bb5*
But I was just more like his wife.

Verse 2:
        F5
A long, long, long, long, long, long, long time ago 
                        Bb5
my great, great, great, great grandfather

took something that did not belong to him
            C5
And that is why today I have an eagle in my veins
    Bb5
I am   part Native American
         F5
And I am leaving as soon as I come,
                          Bb5
As soon as I come you will probably forget my name
         C5                                               Bb5
I hope I fall asleep at the wheel and crash my car on the ride home

Pre-chorus:
             D5               C5
But you look good tonight girlfriend,
                     Bb5
Can I sleep in your bed?
           D5               C5
And when I crawl out in the morning,
      F5               Bb5   C5
Can I stay inside your head?
 
Chorus:
                Bb5    C5  D5
'Cause you were high school
    F5*                       Bb5*
And I was just more like real life
             Bb5   C5        D5
And you were okay, okay as a girlfriend
    F5*                      Bb5*
But I was just more like his wife
           Bb5  C5
And it was okay
              D5
I'll wear the makeup
            F5*               Bb5*
I'll do whatever he wants all night
                Bb5  C5     D5
'Cause you were okay   as a girlfriend
    F5*                       Bb5*
But I was just more like real life.
               F5
More like real life!
