Cmaj7

E 			A
She shone up bright like a knife
G 			A
Wearing tennis shorts made of stripes
E 			A
Hand in hand to the grass and we got it right
D 			A
Got it nice, nice, nice
Just a glimpse of an ankle and I
React like it’s 1805
And I’d swim to the poles just to find the right satellite
It’ll take all of my strength to give up

G 			A
But you all know I tried
G
So forget about it, girl
A
My head’s like a kite
Cmaj7 
When such a creature I sight

Verse:
To town!
Where you’re feet leave no prints on the ground
Have I left my home just to whine in this microphone?
It gets worse every time that we talk
Can’t afford to be just one in a flock
But that’s your lot
When you’re after such a well-made lock
Who was classically trained to give up

Ch:
And my friends know I tried
So forget about it, girl
Even I don’t know why
I can’t just stay the course
Keep my hands on the wheel
Our detractors were right
My head’s like a kite
Cmaj7
All my thoughts run astray
And I’m a walking cliche
When such a creature I sight

Solo over verse 

G A

Ch:
I can’t just stay the course
Keep my hands on the wheel
Our detractors were right
My head’s like a kite
Cmaj7 E
