Lyrics

Wait, where is my bed, I thought I was there
I swear that I didn't come sit in this chair
But here I am, I guess that's fine
It's only something:49
I'll sleep it off tomorrow if I can

Did I take the pills? I think I'll take more
I thought that I left them here in this drawer
I guess I'll sit and think about
The last time that I took them out
And maybe I will remember where they are

There, drawer
Here, floor
Where, more
Huh.

There, bed
Here, bad head
Thr heh huh

I was sondering if you could also post the chording for this song. It's one of my favorites and i would love to be able to play this. : ) Thanks.

Hey Kate! That's what's listed above, though it's in a shortened form. "xx1331" reads the strings from the low E to high E, so the first two strings aren't played, then 1st fret on the D string, 3rd fret on the G string and B string, then 1st fret on the high E string.

Then it's just a matter of getting the fingerpicking pattern, which I'm not sure how to describe. :D

Yeah, i meant like piano chordiing? (wants to learn gutair bad, but till then is stuck with the piano.) Don't really know if it could be converted to that? But yeah, I knew that those were tabs and all, just i don't know how to switch them to piano + stuff, but Thanks for the reply :D
