The Avett Brothers- Ten Thousand Words 
Lyrics by songmeanings.net

There is another version of this song. It is accurate, but it is at a
lower octave. This one matches the main part.
With these chords, you can easily figure out how to pick along as well.
Capo VII (7)
The only time this chord progression changes is before the last verse
and at the end of the song. That part is just F and C back and forth.
As for the rest: G F C the whole way down

     G                                       F
Ten thousand words swarm around my head
      C
Ten million more in books written beneath my bed
    G                      F                  C
I wrote or read them all when searchin' in the swarms
            
Still can't find out how to hold my hands

And I know you need me in the next room over
But I am stuck in here all paralyzed
For months I got myself in ruts 
Too much time spent in mirrors framed in yellow walls

Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about
Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about

And everyone around me shakes their head in disbelief
And says I'm too caught up
They say young is good and old is fine
And truth is cool but all that matters 
Is that you have your good times
But their good times come with prices
And I can't believe it when I hear the jokes they make
At anyone's expese except their own
Would they laugh if they knew who paid?

Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about
Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about

And after we are through ten years
Of making it to be the most of glorious debuts
I'll come back home without my things
'Cause the clothes I wore out there I will not wear 'round you
And they'll be quick to point out our shortcomings
And how the experts all have had their doubts

Ain't it like most people? I'm no different
We love to talk on things we don't know about
