Timeflies - Once In A While
Tabbed by Jamie Murray

[Intro]

Bb, Dm, C x2


[Verse]

                    Bb        Dm      
I thought I would know better
   C
That's wishful thinkin’
                               Bb         Dm
Thought there'd be no pressure
        C
That's wishful drinkin’
               Bb     Dm   C   
Is anything forever or just a feeling?
Gm
What have I been so afraid of?
Bb       C
I don't know


[Verse 1]

Bb                              Dm
From Brooklyn to New York, then off to the West
  C
In Cali, no Khaled, but fuck, we the best
  Bb                           Dm
My stripes, stay American, lemme express
  C
And I keep it as live as a Total Request
 Bb                               
Then they ask me these questions
Dm                  C
Like, "How do you do it?

Press and the road and the music”
Gm
Truth is, I'm always up, I'm always down
Bb                      C
Worry about everyone else


[Chorus]

                      Bb        Dm            C
But once in a while, I catch myself
               Bb        Dm            C
Once in a while, I ask myself
What am I doing?
                  Bb        Dm            C
Once in a while, I need your help
                     Gm
But once in a while I feel like
  Bb              C
I just wanna dance
         Bb  Dm C 
I feel good, 
        Bb  Dm C
(I feel good)
        Bb  Dm C
I feel good, 
        Gm Bb  C
I feel good


[Verse 2]

     Bb                               Dm
I live life like my blood type, B positive
  C
These days something got me feeling quite the opposite
       Bb                          Dm
Music like my heroin, but all I hear is poppy shit
 C             
Time to get up off of it and watch somebody copy it
Bb            
I'm West bound down and out
C
Feeling fake now like somebody found me out
             Gm
Need to slow down, I'm brownin' out
F
So many thoughts, lemme drown 'em out


[Pre-chorus]

                    Bb        Dm      
I thought I would know better
   C
That's wishful thinkin’
                               Bb         Dm
Thought there'd be no pressure
        C
That's wishful drinkin’
               Bb     Dm   C   
Is anything forever or just a feeling?
Gm
What have I been so afraid of?
Bb       C
I don't know


[Chorus]
                      Bb        Dm            C
But once in a while, I catch myself
               Bb        Dm            C
Once in a while, I ask myself
What am I doing?
                  Bb        Dm            C
Once in a while, I need your help
                     Gm
But once in a while I feel like
  Bb              C
I just wanna dance
         Bb  Dm C 
I feel good, 
        Bb  Dm C
(I feel good)
        Bb  Dm C
I feel good, 
        Gm Bb  C
I feel good.


[Verse 3]

Bb
I've been looking at where we're going
             Dm
There's no slowin' down to go back
   C
And thinking of where we've been
No one's ever been given a road map
Bb                             Dm
Say "Slow down, turn here, graduate and work here
C
Come and get a raise when you finish up your first year"
Bb                       Dm            
No, if you're doing it, you're doing it right
  C
Keep it movin', now tell me what you're doing tonight
Gm
Cause sometimes we're up, sometimes we're down
         Bb                         C
Don't worry about anyone else


[Chorus]

   Bb        Dm            C
But once in a while, I catch myself
               Bb        Dm            C
Once in a while, I ask myself
What am I doing?
                  Bb        Dm            C
Once in a while, I need your help
                     Gm
But once in a while I feel like
  Bb              C
I just wanna dance
         Bb  Dm C 
I feel good, 
        Bb  Dm C
(I feel good)

        Bb  Dm C
I feel good, 
        Gm Bb  C
I feel good.

YASSSS! The Gm sounds a bit off, but I'm not sure what it is, so thanks!

Is there a chord that can replace Bb?

If you stick the capo on 3 the chords become shapes of G Bm A Em, if you're struggling with bars you can cheat on the Bm just do
