Capo on Fret 4

Verse 1

 G                                   Em
Songs when they're true, are all dedicated to you
In this invisible world I choose to live in
 G                                  Em
And if you believe that for now I understand
Why words mean so much to you
They'll never be about you

Verse 2
Maybe you're young without youth
             Em                              C
Maybe you're old without, knowing anything's true
I think you're young without youth....

Pre Chorus  - drums begin, riff stops.

 D                       C
Then you contract the American dream
      Em         D
You never look up once
DV                  C
You've contracted American dreams
Em                D           (slide up to G)
I require you to stop and look up.


G      D          Em
Sing a song about myself
               C           G
Keep singing a song about myself
           D       Em       C
Not some invisible world

Verse 3 - same chords as above

Constantly searching to find something new
But what will you find when you think that nothing's true?
Maybe it's that nothing is new

Verse 4

So you let me hear songs that were written all about you
Because songs weren't written for you
They'll never be about you

(Pre Chorus)

(Chorus x 2)

Middle Part

D                          C                  Em        D
And I won't tell you what this means, cause you already know
And I won't tell you what this means, cause you already know...

Sooo, Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world

G         D                   Em          C
You came along and found the weak spot - that you've always wanted
G        D              Em          C
Let yourself be everything that you’ve always wanted             
(While this is sung - the chorus is sung)
G                 D      Em                 C
It doesn’t have to be so silent - that you've always wanted
G           D           Em            C
No need for explanations - that you've always wanted


   G     D             Em             C
You'll find, what you find when you find there’s nothing (x 2)

End on A G
