Vanessa Carlton
Capo 2


Dm C Am G x2

{verse}
       Dm              C              Am            G
Say you see through the folly but you do it for the fame
   Dm           C                     Am            G          Dm
I'm fighting the jet stream, drinkin' cheap wine on airplanes
        C           Am    G    Dm
You're in L.A., not Chicago
          C               Am         G          C
Key under mat, I walk the dog, order in, home alone

Am G C Am G Dm

{verse}
Found your letter on a full moon Sunday night
Some other girl in your spell, casting plans for her life
Pour the vodka, and it dulls sharp knives
Breathe the words; diamonds on rings

{chorus}
    Dm         Am
And you didn't really mean it
   Dm           Am    G
So I don't have to believe it
   Dm         Am
If you didn't really mean it
     Dm          Am            Dm
Then magical thinking gets us by

Am C G Dm Am C G

{verse}
Sing for the after show, those candy colored lips
But your age is showing, and you gotta work harder for it
It's always easier with freshman
Not as clever, but she'll bring you to life

{chorus}
And you didn't mean to do it
So I don't have to believe it
If you didn't really mean it
Magical thinking gets us by

Am G Dm Am x2

Am G

   Dm          Am       Am   G
My fairweather friend
  Dm        Am
Fairweather friend

~instrumental: same as verse~

{verse}
There for the folly
But you did it for the fame
And you're fragile as porcelain
Drinkin' cheep wine on airplanes
And did I ever leave Chicago?
I got your message, glad you're doing well

{chorus}
And you didn't mean to do it
So I don't have to believe it
If we didn't really mean it
Magical thinking gets us by

Am C G       Dm Am C G       Dm Am C G
     Gets us by      Gets us by

        Dm              C             Am             G     Dm C Am G
Say you see through the folly but you did it for the fame              x2

Am G Dm Am

Am G

    Dm         Am
My fairweather friend
