[Optional Capo on 2]

[Intro]
 F#   E F# E F#  E F# E F#   F#

[Verse]
F#
She was acting pretty  thought she owned the city
F#
Someone should have told her pretty ain't a job
F#
And now she begs for money  no one calls her honey
F#
As she bothers shoppers in the parking lot

[Pre-Chorus]
F#
Gets her karma with a catch
F#
Forgets superstition by wearing it backwards
D#sus4       Bsus4       C#sus4           F#sus4
Lives under ladders and sleeps with black cats

[Chorus]
E    F#     E F#   
Some people never change
E    F#   E    F#       E F# E F#   E F# E F#   F#
They just stay the same way

[Verse]
F#
I swear this like a sailor  love is not a favour
F#
I find it's just a concept that we live inside
F#
If you can agree with me and Mr. Twain
F#
In matters of opinion our rivals are insane

[Pre-Chorus]
F#
Forgets superstition by wearing it backwards
D#sus4       Bsus4       C#sus4           F#sus4
Lives under ladders and sleeps with black cats

[Chorus]
E    F#     E F#   
Some people never change
E    F#   E    F#       E F# E F#   E F# E F#   F#
They just stay the same way

[Chorus]
E    F#     E F#   
Some people never change
E    F#   E    F#       E F# E F#   E F# E F#   F#
They just stay the same way

They just stay the same way

So we don't forget the fun

4. Maybe I Will  Maybe I Won’t
 
Capo on 2

[Intro] C  Am

C
Maybe I will  maybe I won't

[Verse]
C                      Am
I don’t wanna find my home
        D                    G
Just wonder what happened to it
                           Am
My hand’s all caught in stones
                    D
Who stole all my bones?
                    G
All my forgotten poems

[Chorus]
        C              Am
Are a joke  what do I know 
Am
Maybe we're wrong 
Am
Doesn’t it show  people get old
                D
When they’re alone
C                       Am
Maybe I will  maybe I won’t

[Verse]
C                   Am
Seven days over the sea shells
D                 G
Sunk so many  at least will 
                Am
You come visit me 
                  D
Finally finding sleep 
                  G
Swim around and dream
         C
Stay afloat

[Chorus]
           Am
Maybe we will  maybe we won’t
Am
Doesn’t it show  people get old
                D
When they’re alone
C                        Am
Maybe I will  maybe I won’t
C                        Am
Maybe I will  maybe I won’t

[Verse]
C                 Am
The weather is impeccable 
D                    G
We’re riding to a festival
                     Am
When suddenly it’s grey
              D
Do not be afraid
                          G
For the wind it doesn’t stay

[Bridge]
     C              D
It blows and goes away
     C                  D               G
It blows and goes but never shows its face

G
[Chorus]
            C                Am 
Doesn’t it show  people get old
Am
When they’re alone 
Am
What do I know 
 
[Outro]
Am                       D
Maybe I will  maybe I won't.
C                        Am
Maybe I will  maybe I won't (maybe I will  maybe I won't)
C                        Am
Maybe I will  maybe I won't (maybe I will  maybe I won't)
C                        Am
Maybe I will  maybe I won't.

5. Young Veins (Die Tonight)

[Intro]  
F#m B E

[Chorus]
A
Is "young" a word for "dumb"
                     D
a word for "fun"?
  A                     D   E    D   A         
We have the time of our lives  every night 
                    D         A         D
 like it's our job to lose our minds
E       A  D
Every night

[Chorus]
         E              Bm
But if I were to die  tonight;
                    D        E
Would you cry or deny
        F#m             C#7
My place in your life?

[Verse]
    D                                   C
I'm aware that you're scared
          F#m           E
Of my heart  but it's there

[Chorus]
A
Is "young" a word for "dumb"  
                    D
a word for "fun"?
       A             D      E   D    A
We have the time of our lives  every night 
                     d
 like it's our job
        A            D
To lose our minds

[Verse]
E       A   D             E
Every night is the same
            Bm                  G
Go to sleep with our blame
                D               E               F#m                  C#7
And the shame is enough to separate us
D                               C#7
But we can't help ourselves
D               F#m
We're in love
Bm       A           G                  F#m
And it really hurts when it's wrong

[Chorus]
A
Is "young" a word for "dumb”;
                     D
 a word for "fun"?
       A              D     E   D    A
We have the time of our lives
                                        D
Every night  like it's our job
        A               D
To lose our minds

[Instrumental]

E A D A E G

[Outro]
A       E
And it's every night 

We have the time 
        D       A  E
Like it's our job
      G     A    E
To lose our minds

D       A E
Every night!

D          E           C#m       D
I've never been such a beautiful blues

A
Step outside your door
            D
And go down to the shore
F#m                        F#m/F
Why do your eyes feel like shells in a dune?
D            E           C#m        D
What makes a crowd turn away from a tune?
D          E              C#m       D
I've never bloomed such a beautiful blues

[Chorus]
E                          A
Even the tide gets high at night
E                           A
Even the truth is wrong sometimes

[Verse]
A
All I want to do
         D
Is dig a hole with you
F#m                     F#m/F
Feet are no stranger to the undertow
D          E      C#m          D
Wind won't decide which way to blow
 
A
But we will never leave
                  D
You're all that's left for me
F#m                      F#m/F
This is our home we just don't have a door
D      E      C#m         D
Euphoria is a risk on the floor
D                 E             C#m       D
The words keep on crawling from under the rug
D             E          C#m       D
Who knew that love was a dangerous drug?

[Chorus]
E                          A
Even the tide gets high at night
E                           F#m F#m/F
Even the truth is wrong sometimes
    F#m/E D
Sometimes

[Outro]
D             E          C#m       D
Who knew that love was a beautiful blues?
D             E          C#m       D
Who knew that love was a dangerous drug?
    D      E         C#m       D
Now I know love is a beautiful drug
D           E         C#m       D
I know that drug is a dangerous love
D          E         C#m       F#m
I know now love is a dangerous blues.


9. Defiance

[Verse]
            A
There was a hope when we found the bridge
     A                D
Of a place we'd never been
  A
Defiance

    A
And ever since I was a kid
     A              D
They said just stay away from there
A                  F#m
Boy don't you ever live

[Chorus]
     A  F#m    A  F#m
In Defiance  defiance

From the outside looking in

I sure do make an easy target
     A                                F#m
It's nice to think that you are always   wanted
A  
I'm not afraid to laugh
      A                   D
And I don't mind taking a photograph
            A                F#m
Because you don't ask for my autograph

[Chorus]
    A  F#m    A   F#m
In defiance  defiance 

[Verse]
        A            
Yet she said it was rusted lead
     A                D     
That love could never live again
         A              F#m
But they found a way to make it stay
     F#m
In defiance
    A
She asked
  F#m
Defiance
  A
She asked
    A
Why can't we just be friends?
     A             D
This kind of thing always happens 
  A            F#m
I fell in love again

[Outro]
     A  F#m      A  F#m
With defiance  defiance
A      F#m
Defiance 
     A  F#m      A  F#m
With defiance  defiance
A      F#m
Defiance 


10. Lie To The Truth

[Intro]
Bm   A   Bm

[Verse]
                G                    A
When I started out writing you this song
             Em
I was heels over head in love

                  G                       A
But you had your doubts cause it took so long
                    Em
To finally see what I'd been doing wrong

[Chorus]
   Bm                              A     G
I tried to love you but you still loved him
               A            Bm           G
So I'll ignore my heart and lie to the truth
     Bm                     Bm   A   Bm
I'll lie to the truth

[Verse]
                     G                        A
A love of mine once said the best part about you
              Em
Was me so now who is judging who?

                     G                    A
I know I broke your heart mine is broken too
               Em
Now if we're even then why are we both blue?

[Chorus]
   Bm                             A    G
I tried to be true but you still love him so
             A           Bm           G
I'll lie in silence and feel like a fool
   Bm                          Bm   A   Bm
I lied to the truth

[Bridge]
    A
I think that I have had enough
    A                              G
I guess that I have had enough of you
    A
I think that I have had enough
    A                           D
I know I finally had enough of you

G A Em 

[Chorus]
    Bm                             A     G
We tried to be true but you still loved him so
              A           Bm           G
I'll keep my distance and lie to the truth
  Bm
I lie to the truth I'll lie to the truth
           G          E
Cause you lied to it too 



11. Heart of Mine

G

[Chorus]
G
If I could ask for anything
G
I'd only want my girl
G
I've seen a lot of things
                                C
Going on all around the world
                         G      C
I had to leave her all alone

I wrote this down 
           Am             G
So I could let her know
G
But I only want to see her

[Chorus]
Em                   G
You should take this heart of mine

She always had that heart of mine

You should take this heart of mine

She always had that heart of mine
G
(Always had that heart of mine)

[Verse]
G
If I could win the lottery
G
We'd sail across the world
G
Travel to the Philippines
G
To buy an island
G
Just for you and me
C                  G
'Cause on the equator
   Am               G
It never really compared
  Am                G
I only want to see her

[Chorus]
Em                   G
You should take this heart of mine
    Am              C
She always had that heart of mine

You should take this heart of mine

She always had that heart of mine

(Always had that heart of mine)
G
(Always had that heart of mine)
