Verse 1:
         A              Asus2       Bm...           D
Got this feeling that today doesn't like me
        A               Asus2       Bm...           D
Oh, the air tastes like flowers and paint
          A            Asus2       Bm...           D
There's a sink full of bottles and cutlery
        A           Asus2   Bm...           D
And the car’s got a list of complaints


Chorus 1:
       F#m           E                      D
I just wish I were a toothbrush or a solder gun
F#m               E            A
Make me something somebody can use


Verse 2:
       A           Asus2    Bm...           D 
We can wish on the pop of a light bulb
         A            Asus2        Bm...           D
Or those photos lying yellowed and curled
          A           Asus2        Bm...           D
Lose some boxes near abandoned electronics
       A              Asus2            Bm...           D
In the corners of the basements of the world


Chorus 2:
          F#m             E                 D
Guess our wishes don't do dishes or brake repairs
F#m                 E            A
Make them something somebody can use


Verse 3:
      A            Asus2   Bm...           D
Got a face full of ominous weather
         A           Asus2         Bm...           D
Smirking smile off a high pressure ridge
         A               Asus2        Bm...           D
Got more faults than the state of California
        A          Asus2       Bm...           D
And the heart is a badly built bridge


Chorus 3:
          F#m            E                   D
Seems the most I have to offer doesn't offer much
F#m               E            A
Make it something somebody can use
F#m                 E            A
Make this something somebody can use
