[Intro] A

[Verse 1]
A                                                      F#m
I built a friend with three pieces of plastic and a pen,
                                  D 
I made him on the table in the den,
                                      A
I gave him my old cellphone for a head,
          E
For a head.
       A
And we spent holidays in my house, 
        F#m
And we left presents in the stocking,
          D                                               A
And we bought bolts and things and strings and a new watch,
                  E
That's what he got.

[Chorus]
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We knew we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.

[Verse 2]
        A
Then I left for college in September
        F#m
And we wept cause we can't be together
      D                                      A
So I kept pictures to remember my old friend,
          E
My old friend.
        A
Then I met this girl at graduation
        F#m 
And forget my oldest creation
       D
And I guess I'll see him next vacation
        A               E
Send my best, I send my best

[Chorus]
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We knew we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.

[Verse 3]
          A                                  F#m
I came home to find him on the table with a note
                                 D
Scribbled out in pencil and he wrote
                                  A
That he just wasn't stable all alone,
       E
All alone.
          A                                       F#m
Next to him, an empty glass of water that he spilled
                          D
All over the body that I built,
                                      A
It fizzled and it popped and then it killed,
               E
And then it killed.

[Chorus]
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We thought we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.
           A
I built a friend.
