'Wisdom Teeth' taken from 'Demo' and 'Sleep is for the Week'
Words and music by Frank Turner

Standard Tuning (EADGBe), Capo on 2nd

I've only tabbed the first instance of each chord sequence in the lyrics - the verses
all the same, the choruses ("Suddenly, well its as clear can be...") are all the same and
middle 8 ("And all the pretty little pictures...")has its own pattern. Its a very simple song.

EDIT: I don't know the names of what I've labelled as #1, #2 and #3. The chord shapes 
100% right, but rather than leave the names incorrect, I've decided to change them. If 
knows the names, tell me and I'll update this again.

Chords:

Lyrics:

          Am
It's been 18 months since I kissed you once

    Cmaj7
So just saying 'hi' just isn't gonna fly

     #1
But give me a clue, and in a minute or two

       #2
Then I might remember your name


And I hate to insist that I was really that pissed
But to tell the truth, in my flush of youth
I would drown my sights so that faces and nights
Seemed the same

And a nervous shrug and an awkward hug
Won’t get me out of the hole I’ve dug,
So I slip the noose with a poor excuse
And talk to someone, anyone else.

And I sit with my friends and I try to pretend
That I never did that sort of thing again,
But I’m lying
to myself.

    G                                               #2
And suddenly, well it’s as clear as clear could be:

        #3                                      #2
I’m not quite the perfect man that I hoped I’d be.

             G                                    #2
And though I always tried to live an honest life,

   #3                                   #2
To tell my truth I’ve told my share of lies.


I remember you, of course I do,
But I don’t recall how many times we’ve been through
This little game, that always ends the same,
With you sad and me far away.


And every time I repeat the line
That the fault’s not mine and I wasn’t unkind.
But the worst part is that I’ve got nothing else
to say.


And suddenly it’s as clear as clear could be:
I’m not quite the perfect man that I hoped I’d be.
And though I always tried to live an honest life,
To tell my truth I’ve told my share of lies.


B7                        #3           D              C
And all the pretty little pictures of faith and firm devotion


That I painted as a child,

B7                            #3       D                C
Well they have fallen by the wayside, along with all my puppy-fat,


But my days have taught me this:

B7                         #3            D                  C
That every day I spend pretending that I always choose the right path


Is a day that I choose the wrong.


Oh yes my wisdom teeth have been giving me grief –
They woke me up to find that I’m exactly the kind of
Guy I said that I’d rather be dead than be
In the days before I got laid.


And suddenly it’s as clear as clear could be:
I’m not quite the perfect man that I hoped I’d be.
And I always tried to live an honest life,

#3                   D                 #2
To tell my truth I’ve told my share of lies.
