Intro/Verse Riff:
   Am   x A11 x Am  E  x G x
    /   \ /   \ /   /  \ / \

(Verse 1)
		   Am A11 Am
I don't want to be second best
E	G     Am   A11 Am E G
Don't want to stand in line
E	G   Am A11 Am
Don't want to fall behind

E	G   Am A11 Am

Am	      Dadd9...
Don't want to get caught out
Don't want to do without

Am A11 Am E G 	Am A11 Am

Am	F/E..		 Gsus2..  
And the lesson I must learn
	     E11/B9	    Am A11 Am
Is that I've got to wait my turn

E	G   Am A11 Am
E	G   Am A11 Am
E	G   Am A11 Am

(Verse 2) - repeat Verse1
Looks like I got to be hot and cold
I got to be taught and told
Got to be good as gold
But perfectly honest
I think it would be good for me
Coz it's a hindrance to my health
I'm a stranger to myself

Dadd9			Am		Asus Am7/G Dadd9
Miniature disasters and minor catastrophoes
	       Am A11 Am
Bring me to my knees
Well I must be my own master
     Gsus2     E11/B9	     Am Am7  E7#9
Or a miniature disaster will be
It will be the death of me

(Verse 3) - repeat Verse1
I don't have to raise my voice
Don't have to be underhand
Just got to understand
That it's gonna be up and down
It's gonna be lost and found
And I can't take to the sky
Before I like it on the ground

And i need to be patient
And i need to be brave
Need to discover
      Am        Am7
How i need to behave
And I'll find out the answers
       Gsus	    E11/B9
When i know what to ask
But i speak a different language
And everybody's talking too fast

(Chorus) - repeat Chorus
Miniature disasters and minor catastrophoes
Bring me to my knees
Well I must be my own master
I've got to run a little faster
I need to know I'll last if a little
Miniature disaster hits me
It could be the death of me

Excellent tab. The addition of a few jazzy chords in this song spices it up, this is how the song should be played.

you know this is the basic way of playing it but if you watch KT's live performance of Miniature Disasters on the Eye To The Telescope deluxe edition, she plays Am, All, Am, then Em, not E, then G. Then she does some things with the other chords like "don't want to get caught out..." She ends with a D5 chord if i'm not to be mistaken, and she strums it slowly.

Yep deffo an em not an E but good job anyway, spacings a bit off but easily figured out, nice one.
