B|---8--7-8------5---7-------|---8--7-8-----------|

VERSE:
G
 Is this what you meant?
   Am                    Em
Is this what you dreamed of?
G
When you were making your plans
Am               Em
Shaking the dirt off?
       G
Do you feel like
        Am    Em
You and I belong? (Oh woah oh!)
                G
Just keep your eyes on the road
    Am             Em
And nothing can go wrong

CHORUS:
              D     Em         C
You can do so much better than this
              D     Em         C
You can do so much better than this

E|---------------------------|--------------------|

VERSE:
            G
I've been checking my sums
   Am                  Em
Oh where did the time go?
         G
Holding my photograph
Am           Em
Up to the window
             G
Through the paper
       Am        Em
And refracted sun (Oh woah oh!)
      G
I can see all the things
Am              Em
I wish that I'd done

CHORUS:
                   D    Em         C
You can hang your hopes on the medicine
                  D    Em            C
You can put your faith in the phone in
         D                    Em         C
You can tell yourself you're doing your best
              D     Em         C
You can do so much better than this

BRIDGE 1:
      C
Get a grip on yourself
      A
Get a grip on yourself
         G                              Am
Could've been something, but you're too late
        C       C/B     Em
And you weren't invited anyway

CHORUS:
              D      Em              C
Cos the photograph showed the wrong man
                D          Em           C
Cos there is no soap star holding your hand
                  D    Em            C
You don't see yourself in the freeze frame
                D     Em        C
Must be someone else using your name

BRIDGE 2:
D            Em             C
   And everyone will be the same
And everyone will gloat
D            Em                    C
   And everywhere you'll see your name
In every shop window

OUTRO CHORUS:
D       Em          C
   It's better than this
              D     Em         C
You can do so much better than this
              D     Em         C
You can do so much better than this
              D     Em         C
You can do so much better than this
