Pirate Bones Intro C Em Bm Verse 1 Em Bm What if I squeeze myself into any shape and I still don't fit? Em What if I bend myself so much that I break and I can't mend it? D Bm What if I burn so bright that the fire goes out and I can't stay lit? C What's the point in it? Em Bm I could get good at crying crocodile tears just to get along Em Bm I could carry on telling you wanna hear 'til my voice is gone D Bm But if I finally get to the place that I think is home and I don't belong C What's the point in it? Where's the benefit? When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it Chorus Em It's not worth having if it's too much to hold Bm7 You can dig so deep that you're left with a hole Em Bm7 Thirsty in a desert with a bag full of gold Em Don't wanna end up like pirate bones Bm7 What I thought was precious was just a pile o' stones Em Bm7 I might have the treasure but I'd be lying alone Em Just a pile of pirate bones Bm7 Em If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having Bm7 If it's something I stole it ain't worth having Verse 2 Em Bm What if I stake everything I am on a dream and it's counterfeit? Em Bm If I reach the end that justifies the means could I live with it? D Bm And if it's true that having too much of any good thing could only make me sick C What's the point in it? Where's the benefit? When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it. Oh, oh Chorus Verse 3 Am Em/G It's not worth that much to me if losing out is what it means D To swim in shallow victory C Is empty, empty Am Em/G It's just not worth the price it's only a fools paradise D C Bm7 ~B7 If it's draining every drop of life 'til I'm dry like pirate bones Chorus
