THIS IS #1 ON STICKS AND STONES. REALLY COOL SONG, VERY EASY. 
THE CHORD EXPLANATION IS AT THE BOTTOM.


VERSE:
E5     E5
      I'M SICK OF SMILING AND SO IS MY JAW, 
F#5               A5
CAN'T YOU SEE MY FRONT IS CRUMBLING DOWN.?
E5
I'M SICK OF BEING SOMEONE I'M NOT, 
F#5            A5
PLEASE GET ME OUT OF THIS SLUMP!
E5
I'M SICK OF CLAPPING 
F#5                   A5
WHEN I KNOW I CAN DO IT BETTER FOR MY SELF!

I'M SICK OF WAITING,
F#5                        A5
SICK OF ALL THESE WORDS THAT WILL NEVER MATTER.

BRIDGE:
C#5          B5        A5
I WIRE THESE NERVES TOGETHER
              C#5       B5         A5
HOPING FOR A CHANCE TO THINK ON TIME
        C#5      B5        A5 
AND I'M TRACING OVER YOUR LETTER 
                  C#5             B5      A5
TO SEE IF YOUR INTENTIONS ARE AS GOOD AS MINE

CHORUS:
           E5      F#5  A5         B5
BUT YOU'RE GETTING WORSE, I SWEAR IT.
     E5       F#5          A5        B5
IT'S HARD TO PROVE YOUR AN UNDERSTATEMENT.
       E5      F#5   A5     B5
YOU'RE GETTING WORSE, AND I KNOW
C#5                      A5          B5
THAT YOU'LL BE CALLING, CALLING, CALLING ME AGAIN.

VERSE 2:
E5     E5
      I'M DONE WITH EVERYTHING,
                         F#5
THAT HAD TO DO WITH YOU.
                        A5
DON'T WORRY, YOU'RE PICTURES ARE ALREADY BURNED!
E5
I'M DONE WITH NEW FRIENDS,
      F#5                         A5
DON'T SELL YOUR SELF SHORT YOU'LL LOSE IT IN THE END!

(REPEAT BRIDGE)
(REPEAT CHORUS)

*BREAKDOWN*= E5-F#5-A5-A5/B5
  E5         F#5    A5     A5/B5
I CAN'T HELP HOW I FEEL
       E5        F#5    A5     A5/B5
NO, I CAN'T HELP HOW I FEEL

BUT YOU'RE!(REPEAT CHORUS CLEAN)

*CALLING ME AGAIN---PART*=SAME CHORD PROGRESSION AS CHORUS

(REPEAT CHORUS)

END ON E5
