[Verse 1]
C                   G             Am               E
This would not have happened if I hadn't missed my plane
             F                    C                G
I would have been there when they told you I'm the rat within the grain
            C            G               Am            E
Within this big misunderstanding now I'm being misunderstood
            F                   C                    G
I'm thinkin someone's trying to fuck with me and set fire to my wood

[Chorus]
           F           G          C(riff 1)
I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
           Dm                         G
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
       C            G             Am           E
I only wanted to be wonderful and wonderful is true
           F          (C)           G         C
In truth I only really wanted to be wanted by you

[Verse 2]
    C          G               Am              E
The stupid situation now where everything goes wrong
             F            C                 G
If you can't tell if I am lying then you do not belong
      C                 G             Am                E
In my bed, go rest your head upon the bones of a bigger man
           F              C                    G
And he can cover you with rockwool and you can close up like a clam

[Chorus]
                 F           G          C(riff 1)
Cause I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
           Dm                         G
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
       C            G             Am           E
I only wanted to be wonderful and wonderful is true
           F          (C)           G         C
In truth I only really wanted to be wanted by you

[Interlude]
C(riff), G, F, C, F, G
C, G, Am, E, F, G, C

[Verse 3]
      C              G              Am        E
So go play with your piano, write a mediocre song
          F            C             G
About the shell of mediocrity and pretend there's nothing wrong
        C                  G                    Am
   E
I never thought you were a chicken shit I never thought of you at all
          F             C                          G
Until you asked me to be part of it and now you're showing me your wall

[Chorus]
           F           G          C(riff 1)
I wouldn't want you to want to be wanted by me
           Dm                         G
I wouldn't want you to worry you'd be drowned within my sea
       C            G             Am           E
I only wanted to be wonderful and wonderful is true
           F          (C)           G         C
In truth I only really wanted to be wanted by you

[Outro]
C(riff), G, F, C, F, G
C, G, Am, E
           F           (C)          G         C
In truth I only really wanted to be wanted by you
