Neck Deep - Staircase Wit Chords
Original is played in Drop C, but you can play this acoustic version in Standard E if you like, sounds good to
me. Not so sure about the intro, but the rest should be correct.

Listen to the song for the strumming for the power chords at "But it's beginning to rust"

Intro

D Em D Em

=Verse 1=

D
The feeling starts to sink in, 
                       D5 E5 D5 C#5 D5
But it's beginning to rust,
G                                        Bm
Still hanging onto the things that we discussed,
                       A                 G 
But the point that was made isn't said and done...
        D
Now the sun shines so bright, but it won't shine for you, 
        G
You remind me of rain in July
                     Bm
And the gloom that I felt for a year, 
          A                            G
And the clouds are always shaped just like you
                      Em F#m G
But there's a parting light...

=Chorus=

D
I always told you that someday
                                 G
I would be packing my bags and I would be on my way,
D 
You always laughed in my face, 
And made the world seem so grey, 
                        G
Lay in the bed that you made
                  D
So I can finally say that I'm fine, 
You can just say "whatever,"
                              G
I won't change my mind 'cuz I know that I'm better off,
D
But I am cursed with a staircase wit, 
           G                                          Bm
Always find the words when it's too late to let them slip

=Bridge 1=

Bm                   D
Don't judge me on my bad habits, 
        Bm       G             D      
I could pick out every flaw of yours, 
                 G
And unearth all your imperfections.

Bm              G           Bm           
Beneath the surface I have seen,
Bm         G                       D 
The ugly truth behind the beauty queen...

=Chorus=

D
I always told you that someday
                                 G
I would be packing my bags and I would be on my way,
D 
You always laughed in my face, 
And made the world seem so grey, 
                        G
Lay in the bed that you made
                  D
So I can finally say that I'm fine, 
You can just say "whatever,"
                              G
I won't change my mind 'cuz I know that I'm better off,
D
But I am cursed with a staircase wit, 
           G                                          Bm
Always find the words when it's too late to let them slip

=Bridge 2=

D A D

D
Held it back, 
Lost the nerve,
         G                      D
Was too scared to talk when you gave me your hand
         G
And you gave me your heart,
D                    A              G 
When you should have kept it to yourself
D                A             G
You should have kept it to yourself,
D             G      A       G 
I wish you'd kept it to yourself
