The key is to pluck the high notes (B and e) together, and to watch for the
little pattern change at the beginning of the chorus.

Capo at 5

[lyrics]

We expected something, something better than before. we expected something more
do you really think you can just put it in a safe behind a painting, lock it up and leave
do you really think you can just put it in a safe behind a painting, lock it up and leave
walk away now and you're gonna start a war

Whatever went away I'll get it over now. I'll get money, I'll get funny again
whatever went away I'll get it over now. I'll get money, I'll get funny again
walk away now and you're gonna start a war

We expected something, something better than before. we expected something more
you were always weird but I never had to hold you by the edges like I do now
you were always weird but I never had to hold you by the edges like I do now
Walk away now and you're gonna start a war

Whatever went away I'll get it over now. I'll get money, I'll get funny again
whatever went away I'll get it over now. I'll get money, I'll get funny again
walk away now and you're gonna start a war
walk away now and you're gonna start a war
