Pirate Bones
Intro     F   Dm   Em

Verse 1
Dm                                                            Em
What if I squeeze myself into any shape and I still don't fit?
Dm
What if I bend myself so much that I break and I can't mend it?
G                                                                Em
What if I burn so bright that the fire goes out and I can't stay lit?
                  F
What's the point in it?
Dm                                                     Em
I could get good at crying crocodile tears just to get along
Dm                                                           Em
I could carry on telling you wanna hear 'til my voice is gone
G                                                                    Em
But if I finally get to the place that I think is home and I don't belong
              F
What's the point in it?  Where's the benefit?  When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it

Chorus
            Dm
It's not worth having if it's too much to hold
                Em7
You can dig so deep that you're left with a hole
Dm                                                             Em7
Thirsty in a desert with a bag full of gold
Dm
Don't wanna end up like pirate bones
Em7
What I thought was precious was just a pile o' stones
Dm                                                                      Em7
I might have the treasure but I'd be lying alone
                                          Dm
Just a pile of pirate bones
       Em7                                                 Dm
If I forfeit my soul it ain't worth having
          Em7
If it's something I stole it ain't worth having
 



Verse 2
Dm                                                                Em
What if I stake everything I am on a dream and it's counterfeit?
Dm                                                             Em
If I reach the end that justifies the means could I live with it?
                  G                                                          Em
And if it's true that having too much of any good thing could only make me sick
                  F
What's the point in it?  Where's the benefit? When I'm gaining all but I'm losing it. 
Oh, oh

Chorus

Verse 3
Dm                                           Am/C
It's not worth that much to me if losing out is what it means
G
To swim in shallow victory
F
Is empty, empty
Dm                                      Am/C
It's just not worth the price it's only a fools paradise
          G                                        F                     Em7             
       ~E7
If it's draining every drop of life 'til I'm dry like pirate bones

Chorus
