Also note that sometimes playing D/F# in place of D sounds |
better I dont know why...that's my personal opinion.       |

Am                       
 Are you frightened by the weight you possess or 
C
 Is this life just weightlessness
           G           
The smoggy twilight in LA
  D
I can't think of one real thing to say
           Am
And Robbie Williams is walking in the canyons
    C
For-gets that we were friends
           G                       (G)
I guess it all depends on your mood
G                           (G)
 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                C
 Why can't you be
                    G
Like when I was thirteen

Am
Why can't you be
        C
Like an art house foreign movie
          G
Frank and sexy, red balloons and ennui
D
 And allude to me

     Am              C
And why can't you be
                          G
A little more of a mystery
(G)
Why can't you be

Am
The part of me that's missing
           C    
Instead of leaving me for some other
           G
Said we're perfect for each other
  F                             Am          G
And I know we wont go spend our lives alone.

Am
 Why can't you be
        C
Like an outsourced government contract
      G                                  D
I'm a fat cat gettin' away with anything
                    Am
Kickin' some secret special powers
             C
Illumination rounds in showers
           G
Cause it's tearing your hair out
             D
While we can have a bed of flowers

(And I said)


Am
  Why can't you be
         C
Like the chicks out on the road
               G    
Some girls are happy just to see me
                Am
Because you got moxie and a broken nose
             C
And take him away from this close
            G
Sometimes a blowjobs not enough


Am
 Why can’t you play
C
  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    G*
And I know we wont go spend our lives alone

    F*   Am*       G* 
Can we........just leave it be
           F*      Am*            G*
And we can live......our lives....separately
              F*          Am*
Could you for-get....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*         G*
So while I'm alive........I will always be


Am
 Why can't you be
          C
Lookin' a little deeper into me
     G
Like JD Salinger
         D
Why do I challenge her
                     Am
In all these surface ways

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


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

I’m not joking
G                 D
 This masochistic self-pity of smoking
Am
 And this city ditty
  C                           G* (play G* riff once this time)
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
And I swear to god I've had enough

Am        C                G (last chord end with easy downwards strum)
 How can I call your bluff? 

                          ~~~THE END~~~
