  Caterpillar crawling up the big phone pole

E                                    G
  Is there somebody that you want to talk to

D                          CG
  You know that pretty soon, you'll be able to fly

G
  How is this going to affect you

                        D
  Do you think it might wreck you

                     A*
  Your friends might reject you

                          DC
  You say you took it too far

         G
  Said you want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be...

DG D G
DG D

B                              A
  Put down glossy pictures and drugs I've never seen

E                                    G
  We'll treat you with advice from a fashion magazine

D                               CG
  And one day she just walked into that magazine

G
  I wonder if she'll ever come back

                    D
  They all said she would crack

                         A*
  They said her mind was one-track

                            DC
  They said she took it too far

           G
  Said you want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be...

DG D G
DG D (... solo ...)


Bm                         A
  Every time you move your lips

E                             G
  Well, let me give you a few tips

D                        CG
  Yesterday you were too young

G
  Tomorrow you will be too old

  To regret all the things you've done

                    D
  Who you trying to hustle

                             A*
  Somebody want to show your muscle

              DC                     G
  Second hand excuses never went too far

                           D
  What's this scene you're making

                       A*
  Your ideas have been taken

                      DC
  We'll seek when you awaken

                     G
  Alone in someone's car

                       D
  You just stood there shaking

                  A*
  You stood there shaking

                     DC
  They said you were faking

           G
  Said you want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be

DG D G

  DG     D      Bm
  Closer to the stars.

the "A*" isnt the right name for that chord, its called a Dm. and CG, DG, DC dont make sense because those arent chord names. also you forgot the Bm in the second verse and just put B. in the verses where it goes Bm to A, its really Bm, A, Asus. youre tab is hard to follow..
