Capo on 4th fret

*This is not a simplified version or something like that, Courtney plays the song like this!*

Chords:

E      : 02210x
A      : x0222x
F#m7/9 : 20210x
G      : 32000x
A*     : xx7650
G6     : xx5430

Wait! Maybe you don't have a capo and you want to play this song (That happened to me).

Chords without capo:

E      = G# : 46654x
A      = C#: x4666x
F#m7/9 = A#m7/9: 64654x
G      = B : x2444x or 76444x 
A*     = C#*: xxx664
G6     = B: xxx442

Also, Courtney plays this songs differently from other because in this song she uses a pick
(I recommend using from 0.5 mm picks to 1.0 mm for a more direct and rough sound of the song)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

E
  Oliver Paul, twenty years old

A
Thick head of hair, worries he's going bald

E
  Wakes up at quarter past nine

A
Fair evades his way down the 96 tram line

E
Breakfast on the run again, he's well aware

     A                                        E       A E A 
He's dropping soy linseed Vegemite crumbs everywhere

E
  Feeling sick at the sight of his computer

   A
He dodges his way through the Swanston commuters

E
Rips off his tie, hands it to a homeless man

A                                                   E
Sleeping in the corner of a metro bus stand and he screams


"I'm not going to work today

          A
Going to count the minutes that the trains run late

E                                                      A  E F#m7/9 G A
  Sit on the grass building pyramids out of Coke cans"

E
Headphone wielding to the Nicholas building

   A
He trips on a pothole that's not been filled in

  E                                
He waits for an elevator, one to nine

  A
A lady walks in and waits by his side

   E
Her heels are high and her bag is snakeskin

A
Hair pulled so tight you can see her skeleton

E
Vickers perfume on her breath

  A
A tortoise shell necklace between her breasts

             E
She looks him up and down with a botox frown

     A
He's well used to that look by now

    E        F#m7/9         G          A
The elevator dings and they awkwardly step in

      E      F#m7/9         G       A
Their fingers touch on the rooftop button

       E                      A*                 G6
Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof

                 E                               A*                  G6
You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth

E                          A*            G6  E A* G6
I'd give anything to have skin like you

         E
He said "I think you're projecting the way that you're feeling

    A
I'm not suicidal, just idling insignificantly

   E
I come up here for perception and clarity

   A
I like to imagine I'm playing SimCity

         E              F#m7/9         G   A
All the people look like ants from up here

         E               F#m7/9          G    A
And the wind's the only traffic you can hear"

          E   F#m7/9        G     A
He said "All I ever wanted to be

        E      F#m7/9          G          A
Was an elevator operator, can you help me please?"

       E                      A*                 G6
Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof

                 E                               A*                  G6
You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth

E                          A*            G6 E A* G6
I'd give anything to have skin like you

       E                      A*                 G6
Don't jump little boy, don't jump off that roof

                  E                              A*                  G6
You've got your whole life ahead of you, you're still in your youth

E                          A*            G6 E A* G6
I'd give anything to have skin like you

E F#m7/9 G A

E F#m7/9 G A

E F#m7/9 G A

E F#m7/9 G A
