G         G6/E         Bm        D
So, she stands and waits, and waits at the school gate.
         G          G6/E       Bm       C                  A/C#
They're late. They come, so dumb, in two cars when they agreed one,
C                A/C#   C
   And it's gone wrong, on her birthday.
G        G6/E     Bm        D
So, they go to Joe's for pizza and ice cream.
      G       G6/E         Bm          C                     A/C#
They sit and stare, and Claire just wants to be nine-and-a-half.
C            Em7                    G6/C
  Next year, she'll tell them she only wants world peace.

    D/G - G/C      D/G - G/C
But Claire, Claire baby,
  G6/E       Bm            D       Cmaj7
I wish you knew how this all got twisted.
  G6/E       Bm          D     Cmaj7
I wish you could see right inside us.
G6/E        Bm          D     Cmaj7       Em7/A         
Some of the stuff, the best of us, that we can't get out.

G           G6/E       Bm           D                        
What's the point of this? What's wrong with two birthdays?
      G         G6/E          Bm           C
It's cool. At school, her friends, they all have two birthdays.
    Em7        G/C                      Em7        G/C
Aw jeez. He just asked the waitress out on a date on her birthday.

    D/G - G/C      D/G - G/C
But Claire, Claire baby,
  G6/E       Bm            D       Cmaj7
I wish you knew how this all got twisted.
  G6/E       Bm          D     Cmaj7
I wish you could see right inside us.
G6/E        Bm          D     Cmaj7       Em7/A         
Some of the stuff, the best of us, that we can't get out.

Here's the check. They pay, with two cards like they've never met.
             Bm         C

You're what we were. We're all that's left.
   Em    Bm      D       Cmaj7   Em7/A
It used to be our birthday too.
