                I recently saw Mr. Bazan in concert and wanted to play some of his new songs. Saw 


Verse 1 

A  Ab/A  F                                G             D     A Ab/A
         You used to feel like a smoker.  Shivering in the cold.  

F                   G                  D      A Ab/A
Waiting outside the bar 'til the opener's over.


A  Ab/A  F                                G             D     A Ab/A
         But now you feel like a drinker - twenty days off the sauce.  

F                   G                  D            A   F  Ab/A
Down at the liquor store, trying to call your sponsor.



Chorus 1 
 
C                    C#min    C#min/C   Bb
You used to feel like a forest   fire      burning, 

F  Ab/A                 C
but now you feel like a child 

         C#min  C#min/C           F   X (mute all strings and strum)
throwing tant---rums for your turn.



Verse 2 

A  Ab/A  F                                G             D     A Ab/A
You used to feel like a prophet and everyone wanted to know, 

F                   G                  D            A Ab/A
how you could tell the truth without losing that soft glow.

A  Ab/A  F                                G             D     A Ab/A
But now you feel like a preacher, evoking the flames of hell. 

F                   G                  D         A   F  Ab/A
Some drunk fisherman chasing after the white whale.



Chorus 2 (same as the first)

You used to feel like a forest fire burning, 
but now you feel like a child throwing tantrums for your turn.

You used to feel like a prodigal returning, 
but now you hate what you made and you want to watch it burn.

End on F
