Okay, so this is the first song I've tabbed myself and I fear the 
possibility thatit may turn out to be an epic failure as far as tabs are 
concerned. I really love this absolutely beautiful and brilliant song so 
much. I'm really just a singer, but I like to dabble in acoustic guitar 
to have something to sing over. I've been searching for this song for ages 
and I haven't been able to find a live video performance or a written tab 
for it. So in my desperation, I resorted to using my ear, hehe.
	
Corrections,criticisms and/or advice on tabbing is highly encouraged, though I 
would appreciate politeness! :-D 
This is my first time after all!

(Intro)


G		 Em (x2)


(Verse 1)


G		 Em
	Me and my helmet

G		 Em
	Such an unconventional kid

G		 Em
	All intense and kinetic

Am		 D
	At best, tolerated from afar

(Verse 2)


G		 Em
	Not yet arrested 

G		 Em	
	and by that, I mean betrothed

G		 Em
	Though at start, I am duly courted

Am		 D
	I've just not been trusted with altars

(Chorus 1)


G		 Em
	I'm a sweet piece of work

G		 Em
	Well intentioned, yet disturbed

Am		 C
	Wrongly labeled and underfed

Am		 D
	Treated like a rose as an Orchid


G		 Em (x2)
	.......(Interlude)..........

(Verse 3)


G		 Em
	My friends as they weigh in

G		 Em
	Get understandably protective

G		 Em
	They have a hard time being objective

Am		 D
	So inside we cancel each other out

(Chorus 2)


G		 Em
	I'm a sweet piece of work

G		 Em
	Well intentioned, and unnerved

Am		 C
	Enabled and misunderstood

Am		 D
	Treated like a rose as an Orchid

(Middle Eight)


G		 Bm
	You've brought water to me

G		 Bm
	Making sure my bloom rebounds

G		 Bm
	You know best of what my special care allows...


(Verse 3)


G		 Em
	So I've lived in my blind spot

G		 Em
	Thought myself usual when I'm not

G		 Em
	In your garden is a nice spot

Am		 D
	As long as it is brave and where you are


(Chorus 3)


G		 Em
	For this sweet piece of work

G		 Em
	High maintenance and deserted

Am		 C
	I've been different and deserving

Am		 D
	Treated like a rose as an Orchid


(Chorus 4)


G		 Em
	Sweet piece of work

G		 Em
	Overwhelmed, unobserved

Am		 C
	I've been bowed down to but so misread

Am		 D
	Treated like a rose as an Orchid


(Ending)


G		 Em (play to fade or end on G...)
	(Ad Lib vocal embellishments to fade or til final G...)
