[Intro]
 B5

C G Em Am x2


[Verse]
C                          G D/F#
Businessmen drink my blood
         Em                                 Am
Like the kids in art school said they would
      C                            G D/F#
And I guess I'll just begin again
Em                              Am
You say can we still be friends


[Chorus]
C          D         C/B
  If I was scared, I would
C              D      G        D/F#
  And if I was bored, you know I would
C              D                  Em   D
  And if I was yours, but I'm not


[Verse]
C                               G D/F#
All the kids have always known
         Em                        Am
That the emperor wears new clothes
       C                          G D/F#
But to bow to down to them anyway
   Em                      Am
Is better than to be alone


[Chorus]

C                               G D/F#
Now you're knocking at my door
       Em                                Am
Saying please come out against the night
    C                        G D/F#
But I would rather be alone
Em                          Am
Than pretend I feel alright

       C                           G D/F#
If the businessmen drink my blood
         Em                                 Am
Like the kids in art school said they would
       C                           G D/F#
Then I guess I'll just begin again
Em                              Am
You say can we still be friends


[Chorus]
C          D        C/B
  If I was scared, I would
C              D     G        D/F#
  And if I was pure, you know I would
C              D                  Em
  And if I was yours, but I'm not
D/F#             C
Now I'm ready to start

C          D
  If I was scared, I would
C              D     G        D/F#
  And if I was pure, you know I would
C              D                  Em
  And if I was yours, but I'm not
D/F#             C     Em
Now I'm ready to start

D/F#             C     Em
Now I'm ready to start
D/F#              C     Em
I would rather be wrong
     D/F#                   C
Than live in the shadows of your song
           Em
My mind is open wide
    D/F#             C     Em 
And now I'm ready to start
    D/F#             C
And now I'm ready to start
           Em
My mind is open wide
    D/F#             C
And now I'm ready to start
                 Em
Your mind surely opened the door
   D/F#              C    Em
To step out into the dark
D/F#
Now I'm ready
