Capo on 3

Hammer ons on most of the chords. The timing of switching to the AM and the little 
bridge that goes with it seems to be the hardest part of the song to play while singing.


EM                      D
I am nothing without pretend
I know my faults
Can't live with them

EM                      D
I am nothing without a man
I know my thoughts
But I can't hide them

EM                      D
I still keep my baby teeth
        AM                      C
In the bedside table with my jewelry

EM                      D
You still sleep in the bed with me,
  AM                    C
My jewelry, and my baby teeth

I don't need another friend
When most of them
I can barely keep up with
I'm perfectly able to hold my own hand,
but I still can't kiss my own neck

I wanted to give you everything
but I still stand in awe of superficial things
I wanted to love you like my mother's mother's mothers did

there's also a little interlude in there between verses that goes

Em D C Em Am C

but good tab all the same

Lack of accuracy. Tab incomplete. Capo on the 4th fret. There's an interlude as well that was missed.
It goes between the Emin and the D
