Capo on Second Fret


Intro:

Em7 A7 Cmaj7 Em7 x2


Verse:
                    Am               
If I fall along the way
D                      Em7
pick me up and dust me off
Em7                            Am
And if I get too tired to make it
D                     Em7
be my breath so I can walk

                     Am
If I need some other love
D                       Em7 
give me more than I can stand
Em7                            Am
And when my smile gets old and faded
D                      G 
wait around I'll smile again

(G)       D/F#        Em7               
Shouldn't be so complicated
(Em7)            Am
Just hold me and then
     D       G
just hold me again


Chorus:

(G)     D/F#        Em7
Can you help me I'm bent?
                        Cmaj7
I'm so scared that I'll never
                D
get put back together
       Cmaj7       G
You're breaking me in
(G)         D/F#        Em7  
and this is how we will end
             Cmaj7    
with you and me bent


Verse:
                              Am                
If I couldn't sleep could you sleep?
D                         Em7
could you paint me better off?
Em7                          Am                
Could you sympathize with my needs?
D                         G
I know you think I need a lot
(G)       D/F#              Em7  
I started out clean but I'm jaded
(Em7)           Am
just phoning it in
     D            G
just breaking the skin


Repeat Chorus

Em7 A7
Em7 A7

Em7           Cmaj7
Start bending me
           Em7     
It's never enough
            Cmaj7
'Til I feel all your pieces
Em7           Cmaj7
Start bending me
                A7
Keep bending me unitl
          Cmaj7             Em7
Until I'm completely broken in

(Em7)  A7  Cmaj7  Em7
(Em7)  A7  Cmaj7  Em7

G            D/F#        Em7
It shouldn't be so complicated
                    Am
Just touch me and then
           D         G
Well, just touch me again

(G)     D/F#        Em7
Can you help me I'm bent?
                        Cmaj7               
I'm so scared that I'll never
             D
Get put back together

     Cmaj7       G
Keep breaking me in
(G)         D/F#        Em7
And this is how we will end
(Em7)           Cmaj7
With you and me lending
            D
Without understanding, 
          C         G
hell, I'll go there again

(G)     D           Em7
Can you help me I'm bent?
(Em7)                   C               
I'm so scared that I'll never
             D
Get put back together

      Cmaj7      G
Keep breaking me in
(G)         D/F#        Em7
And this is how we will end
             C
With you and me bent.
