Intro: A Aaug A Aaug

A
I woke up as heavy as lead
A                        E
An ocean of worry weighs me down in bed
            Gbm          Aaug        A      -0132-
But there's things to do, there's a life to live
D            Dm       A
Must ignore my stupid head

Interlude: A Aaug

A
Friends float above in the wind
A                            E
Bright balloons pulling them up as they grin
            Gbm          Aaug        A       -0132-
But there's things to do, there's a life to live
     D        Dm         A
Must ignore the things I think


A Aaug A     Aaug
       OooOOOoooOOoh


A
It's like walking around with a stone for a heart
Aaug
People swimming in honey as your life falls apart
Gbm
It's cold and it's dark and there's no way out
Aaug
I felt like you once, I wish I could shout


A
It's like walking around with a stone for a heart
Aaug
People swimming in honey as your life falls apart
Gbm
It's cold and it's dark and there's no way out
F
I felt like you once, I wish I could shout


A
You never can undo the brain
A                                  E
Now it knows of the holes, it will fall as it's trained


Gbm                        Aaug
Cause there's things to do
          A       -0132-
There's a life to live
           D
Watch them laugh
          Dm           A
While you stay in, the rain

  1. i’m not sure how it’s showing up for everyone else but for me there’s a missing chord that just has -0132- and for that i’ve been using g7 and it sounds nice

  2. Sofia Portela

    It might be wrong in some places but the intro is correct and most of it is too, look at the video, she didn’t use all of those chords.

  3. This is actually not accurate. Neither the lyrics nor the chords… sadly :( The right chords an lyrics would be:

    • Olive OIL

      Thank you! I was thinking the same thing, and going off of her video. (which is difficult but i did learn the actual first few chords so)

    • THANK YOU SO MUCH. It sounds so much better now!

  4. I love this song so much the chords are perfect!

  5. She pluck C one and A E together twice for most of the song with some single strums in some places

  6. these aren’t the chords dodie used.. dodie used the same strumming (plucking?) pattern as intertwined and different chords. the best way i found to learn them was dodies video, but it took a little bit of trial and error to get the right chords :)

    • I think the site is accidentally transposing it by 2 or something cause if I click +2 and then go back to 0 it corrects itself… might be just me but oh well

    • Omgitzmet0t

      to get the right chords, transpose the chords to a number other than 0, and then go back to 0 and it will show the correct chords. As for plucking you would pluck the C string once and the E and A strings together, twice.

  7. -2 or +5 are a bit easier
