 Am(strum once)
Are you frightened by the weight you possess oh
 C (strum once)
Is this life just weightlessness
         G (strum once)       
The smoggy twilight in LA
 G          D/F#
I can't think of one real thing to say
 Am (strum once)
And Robbie Williams is walking in the canyons
 C(strum once)
Forgets that we were friends
           G(strum once)              G D/F# (strum each once)
I guess it all depends on your mood
                         D/F#  G (strum each once)
Why can't these meds be any damn good




And she said
 Am
Why can't you be
 C
Like my waterpik shower massager
 G                  D/F#
A sweet reliable machine
                      Am
And to tell the truth I don't feel less alone
 C                                                    G
A water massagers is the purest love I've ever known 
 Am              Am C/G Cadd9 (play the Am and C/G once) 
Why can't you be
 C              G 
Like when I was 13
 Am (strum once) Am            
Why can't you be
 C
Like an art house foreign movie
            G                        D/F#   
Frank and sexy, red balloons and ennui

And allude to me
 Am              Am C/G C (play the Am and C/G once and quickly) 
And why can't you be
 C                          G
A little more of a mystery
 

  G
Why can't you be
 Am
The part of me that's missing
  C
Than leaving me for some other
  G
Said we're perfect for each other
   F                            Am            Cadd9 G
And I know we wont go spend our lives alone.
 Am(strum Once)
Why can't you be
Am C
Like an outsourced government contract
     G                              D/F#
I'm a fat cat gettin' away with anything
                    Am
Kicking some secret special powers
             C
Illumination rounds in showers
G
Cause your tearing your hair out
 D/F#
While we can have a bed of flowers




And I said
Am
Why can't you be
         C
Like the chicks out of the road
               G
Some girls are happy just to see me
               Am
Because you got moxie and a broken nose
         C
Take him away from this close
            G
Sometimes a blowjobs not enough
Am                Am C/G C (play the Am and C/G once quickly) 
Why can’t you play
 (stop playin for a sec)
A little less rough

G
Why can't you be
 Am
The part of me that's missing
            C
Instead of leaving me for some other
           G
Say we're perfect for each other
      F                              Am        C G (strum both one time)
And I know we wont go spend our lives alone
   



( THE NEXT PART DONT STRUM SO MUCH AND DO A LIL MORE PICKIN)

 F     Am
Can we... 
 G
just leave it be
          F        Am           G
And we can live... our lives... separately
          F        Am         
Could you forget... what happens to you
 G
You and me
 F                   Am
When we're dead... and you'll be dead
            G
We'll have eternity
                     F     Am
And I will spend it all... missing you
 G
Seeing you with me
                 F   Am     
So while I'm alive... 
G
I will always be






(BACK TO STRUMMIN)
 Am
Why can't you be
 C
Lookin' a little deeper into me
     G
Like JD Salinger
         D/F#
Why do I challenge her
                    Am
In all these surface ways

That you displease
     C
Why can't you be
         G
A little more at ease

 Am
Why can't you be
       C
Like a hand rolled cigarette

I’m not joking
G                  D/F#
This masochistic self-pity of smoking
 Am
And this city ditty
   C                    G
I keep provoking you to leave me

She said
Am
Why can't you be
C
Like a candle I can snuff
               G
You’re still a diamond in the rough
     D/F#
And I swear to god I've had enough
 Am        C
How can I 
                  G
call your bluff? 


ENJOY
