The Cribs Simple Story, with both capo chords and non capo chords. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Simple Story - The Cribs

[Verse 1]

C
I know it's a simple story

But where you gonna hear another one just like this?

Another minute passing, waiting 'round for something to hit...
                      F 
And then I start to exist, when you were looking for me
                                               C
Why'd I have to leave and make you thought I'd run?

Maybe I need to be on something
                                          Am
To figure out just what all this means to me

I should have played her something
Em
Shoulda said something then
             C
But it's too late

I know it's a simple story
G                                
Gonna have to be a man someday

[Verse 2]
C
Let's start a vicious cycle

Let me off the leash and watch me run in the grass

But then I disappear and I show up a few days later
                  F
With my foot in a trap

But it's only my heart that's bleeding
                                                 C
I'm howling at the moon just hoping someone understands

That I only came into season when I smelled the blood on the wind
                          Am
And heard the beat of the band
                           Em                                         C
I know I give no reason to give me something old or give me something new

Why do I even need this?
G                                C
Gonna have to do what I need to

[Verse 3]

Just like a teenage summer

The sun beats down and cracks the flags left and right

But it's not just the heat
                                                            F
My body and my head are full of things that keep me up on a night

Like it's only time and distance
                                               C
You're in a black box and I can't even wait outside

You'll just have to tell me about it

Gonna have to sleep
         G        G*   Gsus2      G
It's too light...
C

I'm howling at the moon just hoping someone understands

That I only came into season when I smelled the blood on the wind
                          Am
And heard the beat of the band

I know it's just a feeling
Em
Shouldn't even have these thoughts
             C
But it's too late

I know it's a simple story
G                           C
Gonna have to be a man someday
