 [Intro]

   D   Gbm  Bm  Em

[Verse 1: Lupe Fiasco]
     G
Uhh, I just need a minute to replenish who I am

And who I am is so dependent on exactly where we stand
Bm
I stand in any pose, anythin' but tippy-toes
G
Don't want you to feel smaller, always taller

Now I'm a cheerleader, she a baller
                         Gbm
The difference in height isn't aight, I left my ego at the altar
G
Now every ring's a sting and everythin' I taught ya

Is comin' back around to me, just like revolvers

And every single click is just hammerin' it home
Gbm
Who knew Russian Roulette involved answerin' the phone?
Abm
Until my signal dwindles or my channel is in roam
Em
Or my cellphone dies or it's cancer in my dome
G
And dear nix the tone, as I pour my fucking pain out
Gbm                                                       Bm
One of your short nodes, might blow my fuckin' brains out

But you ain't even pick up
Em                 Bm
Talkin' to myself, exactly what you sick of


[Pre-Hook: Sebastian Lundberg & Lupe Fiasco]
                  D
Feeling kinda restless
Gbm
Did you get my message?
     Bm                   Em
It's swirling around and so (yeah, c'mon!)
G                              Bm
No, don't tell me that you care (uh huh)
                            Em
When I know you're standing there (yeah)
                       C                             G
I left the story of my life on your answering machine (what's up? Yeah)


[Hook: Sebastian Lundberg & Lupe Fiasco]
                    Bm
Hello, can you hear me?
               Em
Hello, are you there?
     C
Hello, would you pick up the phone?
G                    Bm
Hello, can you hear me?
                 Em
Hello, are you there? (yeah, are you there? Are you there? Are you there?)
     C
Hello, would you pick up the fuckin' phone?


[Verse 2: Lupe Fiasco]
G
We were like, if a tree falls in the forest and

No one is around, does it really make a sound?
Bm
That's romantic and profound, but now
                 G
We're like lumberjacks holdin' the axes that brung it down

So I'm now on your message, talkin' 'bout "Remember?"
Gbm
Silence in return, that sound like 'Timber!"
Bm
There's some that can't see the forest because they're liars
Em
But I can't see the forest 'cause of the fire
G
And in our prehistorics, the flowers was rootin' for us
Gbm
Brontosaurus ate the flowers, T-Rex ate the Brontosaurus
Bm
And then the T-Rex turned around and ate the florist
Em
That's why I lost my FTD endorsements
G
But that's really not important
Gbm
My sadness' a snitch, my melancholy informant
Bm
Despair wears a wire, my longin' rappin' a song
Em
My worry is a rat, my lonely tappin' the phone


[Pre-Hook: Sebastian Lundberg & Lupe Fiasco]
G
Feeling kinda restless
Gbm
Did you get my message?
     Bm                    Em
It's swirling around and so (uh huh, uh huh, uh huh)
D
I wanna give you reasons (yeah)
Gbm
Tell you what I'm feeling
    Bm                             Em
But none of these lines are secure (nah)
G                           Bm
No, don't tell me that you care (uh huh)
                            Em
When I know you're standing there (yeah)
                        C                           G
I left the story of my life on your answering machine (what else? Uh huh)
                      Bm
My tears run off your shoes (yeah)
                  Em
Like water from a goose (uh)
                              C
You try to wash off all the dirt
                                   G
But your hands aren't getting clean


[Hook: Sebastian Lundberg & Lupe Fiasco]
                    Bm
Hello, can you hear me?
               Em
Hello, are you there?
  C
Hello, would you pick up the phone?
  G                  Bm
Hello, can you hear me?
                 Em
Hello, are you there? (are you there? Are you there? Are you there?)
  C
Hello, would you pick up the fuckin' phone?


[Verse 3: Lupe Fiasco]
 G
The make-believers on receivers as you sit back and observe
 Bm
As the rubber curly cord just absorbs all my words
  Em
Will you collect us then connect us or neglect us on the whole?
            C
Into the wall, then cross the wires on the telephone poles
        G
Then bounces off the towers, then up into the satellites
  Bm
Then falls down back to Earth to bring a broken heart back to life
  Em
Happens all the time, lost an appetite and lack of sleep
 C
If it's dead and flatten line, I'll leave a message at the beep


[Hook: Sebastian Lundberg & Lupe Fiasco]
  G                  Bm
Hello, can you hear me?
                 Em     C
Hello, are you there? (Hello, are you there? Yeah)

Hello, would you pick up the phone? (Come on)
  G                  Bm
Hello, can you hear me? (Come on)
               Em
Hello, are you there? (Come on)
     C                              G
Hello, would you pick up the phone?
                             Bm
Would you pick up the phone?
                             Em
Would you pick up the phone?
  C
Hello, would you pick up the fuckin' phone?
