Intro: E
 
Verse:
E             Abm
I wish it was 2004
                                      Dbm
I wish my favorite bands were still on tour
                                B
I wish everything wasn’t so, so complicated
       E                          Abm
and I, I wish that I was still as tall
                               Dbm
as the markings on the kitchen wall
                                           E7
Wish I could gain back the confidence that they created
 
Chorus:
A                             B
Lately things haven’t been the best for me
Dbm     B
I know you think
A       E7
it’s all in my head
A        B
I'm crazy for wondering what it’s all for
    Dbm            Dbm
but every day I’m thinkin' of ways
    B                   B
for someone to come and take me away
A                  B                 E
and say we’re going back to 2004
 
Verse:
E                                   Abm
I, I never had it all quite figured out
                                    Dbm
I never really learned what growing up was all about
 B
    and I still don’t know
              E                                  Abm
And there are so many things that I wish I could say I’ve done
                   Dbm
They say that time flies when you’re having fun
     E7
Does time only fly when you’re young
 
Chorus:
A                             B
Lately things haven’t been the best for me
Dbm     B
I know you think
A       E7
it’s all in my head
A        B
I'm crazy for wondering what it’s all for
    Dbm            Dbm
but every day I’m thinkin' of ways
    B                   B
for someone to come and take me away
A                  B
and say we’re going back to 2004
 
Bridge:
Dbm                       B
    Looking back on it I know that I am fortunate
    A
and I can not complain
    B
The nerves, the stress, the total mess
 
It's all inside my brain
Dbm                          B                     A
but growing up just makes me really really really scared
    B
And I don’t think that I’m prepared
 
Pre-Chorus:
E
I, I wish it was it 2004
Abm
   I wish my childhood was still in store
Dbm
   and I wish everything wasn’t so
E7
   so complicated
 
Chorus:
A                             B
Lately things haven’t been the best for me
Dbm     B
I know you think
          A  E7
that it’s all in my head
      A            B
and I must be crazy for wondering what it’s all for
    Dbm            Dbm
but every day I’m thinkin' of ways
    B                   B
for someone to come and take me away
A                  B
and say we’re going back to 2000
      Dbm            Dbm
Yeah, every day I’m thinkin' of ways
    B                   B
for someone to come and take me away
A                  B               E
and say we’re going back to 2004
