C                               G/B                                                  
Get a load of me, get a load of you walkin' down the street
             Am7            Fsus2
And I hardly know you -it's just like we were meant to be
C                                        G/B
Holding hands with you when we're out at night
                                  Am7         Fsus2
Got a girlfriend, you say it isn't right -and I've got someone waiting too
Fmaj7
What if this is just the beginning
G
We're already wet, and we're gonna go swimming

[chorus]
Am  F       C               G
Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can't I speak whenever I talk about you
F                                       G
It's inevitable, it's a fact that we're gonna get down to it
          Am    F       C               G
So tell me -why can't I breathe whenever I think about you

[repeat intro]
C
Whenever I think about you
Fmaj7
Whenever I think about you
Am7
Whenever I think about you
F
Whenever I think about you

[verse 2]
C                                    G/B
Isn't this the best part of breakin' up
                                    Am7
Finding someone else you can't get enough of
    Fsus2
Someone who wants to be with you too
C                                 G/B
It's an itch we know we are gonna scratch
                                   Am7
Gonna take a while for this egg to hatch
    Fsus2
But wouldn't it be beautiful
Fmaj7
Here we go, we're at the beginning
G
We haven't fucked yet, but my heads spinning

[chorus 2]
Am  F       C               G
Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can't I speak whenever I talk about you
F                                       G
It's inevitable, it's a fact that we're gonna get down to it
          Am    F       C               G
So tell me -why can't I breathe whenever I think about you

[bridge]
Am     Am/B      Am7/C   Am/E      Fmaj7
High enough for you to make me wonder where it's goin'
High enough for you to pull me under somethin's growin'
Fmaj7                      F6              Fmaj7/C
Out of this that we can control -baby I am dyin'

[chorus (break)]
Am7(3)F(3)  C(3)                    G(3)
Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can't I speak whenever I talk about you

[chorus 3]
Am  F       C               G
Why can't I breathe whenever I think about you
Why can't I speak whenever I talk about you
F                                       G
It's inevitable, it's a fact that we're gonna get down to it
          Am    F       C               G
So tell me -why can't I breathe whenever I think about you

[repeat intro]
C
Whenever I think about you
Fmaj7
Whenever I think about you
Am7
Whenever I think about you
F                          C
Whenever I think about you

If you knew anything about Liz Phair's music, you would know that most of her lyrics have sexual/"gross" overtones. She's dirty. This is the best tab of this Ive seen thus far.

I copy/pasted the lyrics from some lyrics site, and I don't bother to proof-read them. They are merely a guide. If you want a lyrics transcription, go to a lyrics site. My focus is on the chords.
