Intro: B
 
Verse:
B             Ebm
I wish it was 2004
                                      Abm
I wish my favorite bands were still on tour
                                Gb
I wish everything wasn’t so, so complicated
       B                          Ebm
and I, I wish that I was still as tall
                               Abm
as the markings on the kitchen wall
                                           B7
Wish I could gain back the confidence that they created
 
Chorus:
E                             Gb
Lately things haven’t been the best for me
Abm     Gb
I know you think
E       B7
it’s all in my head
E        Gb
I'm crazy for wondering what it’s all for
    Abm            Abm
but every day I’m thinkin' of ways
    Gb                   Gb
for someone to come and take me away
E                  Gb                 B
and say we’re going back to 2004
 
Verse:
B                                   Ebm
I, I never had it all quite figured out
                                    Abm
I never really learned what growing up was all about
 Gb
    and I still don’t know
              B                                  Ebm
And there are so many things that I wish I could say I’ve done
                   Abm
They say that time flies when you’re having fun
     B7
Does time only fly when you’re young
 
Chorus:
E                             Gb
Lately things haven’t been the best for me
Abm     Gb
I know you think
E       B7
it’s all in my head
E        Gb
I'm crazy for wondering what it’s all for
    Abm            Abm
but every day I’m thinkin' of ways
    Gb                   Gb
for someone to come and take me away
E                  Gb
and say we’re going back to 2004
 
Bridge:
Abm                       Gb
    Looking back on it I know that I am fortunate
    E
and I can not complain
    Gb
The nerves, the stress, the total mess
 
It's all inside my brain
Abm                          Gb                     E
but growing up just makes me really really really scared
    Gb
And I don’t think that I’m prepared
 
Pre-Chorus:
B
I, I wish it was it 2004
Ebm
   I wish my childhood was still in store
Abm
   and I wish everything wasn’t so
B7
   so complicated
 
Chorus:
E                             Gb
Lately things haven’t been the best for me
Abm     Gb
I know you think
          E  B7
that it’s all in my head
      E            Gb
and I must be crazy for wondering what it’s all for
    Abm            Abm
but every day I’m thinkin' of ways
    Gb                   Gb
for someone to come and take me away
E                  Gb
and say we’re going back to 2000
      Abm            Abm
Yeah, every day I’m thinkin' of ways
    Gb                   Gb
for someone to come and take me away
E                  Gb               B
and say we’re going back to 2004
