g|--2---2-|  4x

g|--2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2-|   4x
I get lost, messed up, and bored when I'm alone too long
I can't sleep, function, or eat when I'm not with someone
Late last fall she ended it all and moved to who knows where
Just like that she vanished and packed and never even called

Refrain 1: (power chords)
          G                 D         A
Do feel a certain sense of synergy between yourself and me
           G             D                    A
A kind of macabre somber wonder twin type of harmony

               D  Em  G
What if it was you?
A           D     Em   G
You that I needed all along
A             D   Em  G
I felt like a fool
A           D          Em     G      A        D
Kicking and screaming and pretending we were wrong

(Repeat Intro)

D                                         A
Let's get wrecked on poptarts and sex and see the Taj Mahal
D                                              A
Let's save birds from Prince William Sound and skateboard through the mall
D                                              A
Let's fight crimes with mangoes and limes and join the PGA
D                                   A
Let's win big with every spin, but hurry I can't wait

Refrain 2: (single strum)
               G                D                  A
Do you spend a fortune on those late night prepaid television scams
                 G                 D                         A
In search of the perfect brand of steak knife and non-stick frying pan?

Chorus 2:
                D  Em  G
What if it was you?
A           D      Em   G
You that I needed all along
A             D  Em  G
I felt like a fool
A             D       Em      G
Thinking we were completely wrong
A                D
It seemed like a dream
A beautiful scream
             G           A            D
That echoed forever and made us not afraid to feel the same

And after it ends
We'll try to be friends
                   G              A                 D
And they say what doesn't kill us makes us who we are

D---F#m 2x
D                                          F#m
All this time and everything's changed, but I still feel the same
D                                   F#m
All good things eventually end and get washed down the drain
        G                 D            A
What a disaster it would be if you discovered that I cared
              G                    D               A
A little too much for friends, but not enough to share

Chorus 3:
               D  Em  G
What if it was you?
A            D     Em   G
You that I needed all along
A              D  Em  G
I felt like a fool
A           D        Em     G
Now that I know that I was wrong
A            D  Em  G
It had to be you
A            D  Em  G
It had to be you
A            D  Em  G
It had to be you
A          D   Em  G  A  D  F#m
I knew it was you
