Intro:
     G                  D
Just as I was about to take my shoes
A                     Bm
Off, on the rooftop there I see
   G                           D
a girl with braided hair here before me
 A        Bbdim  Bm
Despite myself I go and scream,
 

-nc-
"Hey. Don't do it please!"
 
Interlude:
   G         D        A         Bm
   G         D        A  Bbdim  Bm
 
Verse:
       G              D      A       Bm
Whoa, wait a minute what did I just say?
G           D         A     Bm
I couldn't care less either way!
G            D      A        Bm
To be honest I was somewhat pissed...
G           D    A  Bbdim Bm
This was an opportunity missed!
 

     G                 D         A      Bm
The girl with braided hair told me her woes,
G                D       A      Bm
You've probably heard it all before.
    G                   D        A     Bm
"I really thought that he might be the one.
G            D      -nc-
But then he told me he was done."
 
Chorus:
     G           D
For God's sake please!
          A              Bm
Are you serious? I just can't believe
      G               D              A     Bbdim Bm
That for some stupid reason you got here before me!
     G     D              A                   Bm
Are you upset 'cause you can't have what you wanted?
        G                 D             A      Bbdim  Bm
You're lucky that you've never gotten robbed of anything!
 
Refrain:
      G
"I'm feeling better, thank you for listening."
     A                                G
The girl with braided hair then disappeared.
 
Interlude:
   G         D        A         Bm
   G         D        A  Bbdim  Bm
 
Verse:
   G                  D
Alright, today's the day!
    A     Bm
Or so I thought...
 G         D           A        Bm
Just as I took both of my shoes off,
  G              D         A      Bm
There was but a girl short as can be,
 G         D     A Bbdim Bm
Despite myself I go and scream.
 

G           D        A      Bm
The petite girl told me her woes, 
G                D       A      Bm
You've probably heard it all before.
 G           D        A          Bm
"Everyone ignores me. Everyone steals.
G           D       -nc-
I don't fit in with anyone here."
 
Chorus:
     G           D
For God's sake please!
          A              Bm
Are you serious? I just can't believe
      G               D              A     Bbdim Bm
That for some stupid reason you got here before me!
       G    D                 A            Bm
'Cause even so, you're still loved by everyone at home!
        G              D             A Bbdim    Bm
There's always dinner waiting on the table, you know!
 
Refrain:
     G
"I'm hungry."

Said the girl as she shed a tear,
     A                              G
The girl short as can be then disappeared.
 
Bridge:
           D              A           Bm
And like that, there was someone everyday.
   G                 D
I listened to their tale,
   A               Bm
I made them turn away.
     G                    A
And yet there was no one who
      D                  Bm
Would do this for me, no way I could
 Em                A
Let out all this pain.
 
Interlude -x2-:
   G         D        A         Bm
   G         D        A  Bbdim  Bm
 
Verse:
 G            D          A      Bm
For the very first time there I see,
 G            D        A       Bm
Someone with the same pains as me!
 G                D        A     Bm
Having done this time and time again.
 G          D     A Bbdim Bm
She wore a yellow cardigan.
 

 G             D        A          Bm
"I just wanna stop the scars that grow,
 G     D        A     Bm
Every time that I go home...
 G            D       A      Bm
That's why I came up here instead."
 G               D           A  Bbdim Bm
That's what the girl in the cardigan said.
 

       A             E       B      Dbm
Whoa, wait a minute what did I just say?
A           E        B      Dbm
I couldn't care less either way!
A           E     B      Dbm
But in the moment I just screamed,
A              E      B     Dbm
Something that I did not believe.
 

-nc-
"Hey. Don't do it please..."
 
Chorus:
       A      E
Ahh! What to do?!
        B                 Dbm
I can't stop this girl oh this is new!
    A                 E                B    dim Dbm
For once I think I've bitten off more than I can chew...
    A     E               B         Dbm
But even so, please just go away so I can't see,
      A          E               B  dim    Dbm
Your pitiful expression is just too much for me!
 
Refrain:
    A
"I guess today is just not my day."
     B
She looked away from me and then she disappeared.
 
Verse:
        A              E      B         Dbm
There's no one here today, I guess it's time.
A         E      B       Dbm
It's just me, myself, and I.
A               E      B     Dbm
There's no one who can interfere.
A          E     B      Dbm
No one to get in my way here.
 

A             E       B    Dbm
Taking off my yellow cardigan.
A             E         B      Dbm
Watching my braids all come undone.
A            E          B      Dbm
This petite girl, short as can be.
A         E        B      E
Is gonna jump now and be free.
