Pre-Chorus 1: Ebm E And what's the point of falling D Aadd9 When I know I'm only stalling D Bsus4 B 'cause I have to go back home Chorus 1: Dbm Where I'm just one in the herd! B Tripping over my words Aadd9 Trying hard to go with the grain Bsus4 Cdim Keeping the quirks in my brain Dbm I'm on the brink of discovery B I think Gbadd9 But what if I'm dreaming Bsus4 B That's what it seems like Chorus 2: Dbm 'cause this girl Eaug Thinks I'm part of her world A Am And that new territory's scary D If I turn the handle A Am I asking for a scandal B E Emaj7 Should I try to be ordinary? B -note- E mmbaaaaaaah Verse 3: E Emaj7 I've always been a little odd E Emaj7 The only pea inside the pod Abm That's not an expression, I'm guessin' -nc- Oh well Verse 4: A Cdim E Emaj7 See that's exactly what I mean! E Emaj7 I'm just as awkward as I seem Abm Plus she makes me nervous Aadd9 I hope she can't tell Bridge 2: Bsus4 B What is it she sees?
