Intro:
E/D E E/F# E/G# E/A E/B E/C# E/D E E/F# E/G# A

A             A/G#             C         D          A/C#          A
Doted on like seeds planted in rows, the untied shoelaces of your life 
A            A/G#                    E            D            A/C#         A
Nurtured all year, then pressed in a book, or displayed in bad taste at the table 
A         A/G#                 G
Problems arise and you fan the fire, 
                D           (A/C#)         A
While there's a wild pack of dogs loose in your house tonight
A            A/G#                 C                    D          
Cut from bad cloth or soiled like socks, add it up and basically people never 

C                               G/B              
Change, they just talk and make plans in the dark 
        C                           G/B                        C
Or make haste with ideas that can't help but creep good people out
            G/B                      C                       G/B         D    E  
As you talk to me, too much you're assuming, we don't always want what's right

E E E E E E  C# C# C#

Did I strike the right set of chords you're annoyed, the goal is to ignite you to move on
You feel ill at ease, you got no squeeze, and the wise cracks won't make you more stable
You've learned your lines to scale and to time, 
Why must I remind you now I'm only less able
Cut from bad cloth or soiled like socks, we're ordinary people, we can't help but to 

Change as we walk and make plans in the dark 
Or make haste with the boy who can't help but creep good people out
As you talk to me, too much you're assuming, we don't always want what's right

E E E E E E  C# C# C#

A          E                   G                   D
Two fallen saplings in an open field, snow padding gently on an empty bench
An old woman's jewelry lying unadorned, cold nesting robins allied for the 
First time, I know when you hear these sappy lines, you'll roll your eyes and say, 
     C
Nice try
