                             HEADPHONES - Jars of Clay

Tuning: Standard, with capo on 3rd fret

Intro tab:

(the intro riff is played through most of the song, but this is the chord
progression if you want to just strum, or use a different instrument.)
(all chords relative to capo)

F#m               G
  I don't have to hear it
A      Bm
  If I don't want to
F#m     G
  I can drown this out
A          Bm
  Pull the curtains down on you
F#m      G
  It's a heavy world
A          Bm             F#m
  It's too much for me to care
  If I close my eyes
A          Bm
  It's not there

        F#m        G
With my headphones on
        A          Bm
With my headphones on

Piano part:

               F#m     G
  We watch television
A         Bm
  But the sound is something else
F#m      G
  Just a song played against the drama
A        Bm
  So the hurt is never felt
F#m             G
  I take in the war fires
A         Bm
  And I'm chilled by the current events
F#m       G
  It's so hopeless
A               Bm
  But there's a pop song in my head


BRIDGE (play intro riff throughout)

At the tube stop
You sit down across from me
(I can see you looking back at me)
I think I know you
By the sad eyes that I see
And I wanna tell you
(It's a heavy world)
Everything will be ok
But you wouldn't hear it
(I don't wanna have to hear it)
So we go our separate ways

(CHORUS) (The lyrics below are sung over the chorus, except the last line
which is played with the intro riff)

I don't wanna be the one who
Tries to figure it out
I don't need another reason
I should care about you
You don't wanna know my story
You don't wanna own my pain
We're living in a heavy, heavy world
And there's a pop song in my head
yeah there's a pop song in my head

Yeah it's a heavy world
Oh no, I don't wanna have to hear it
Heavy world

I don't want to have to hear it
