Intro: F C G C 

Verse 1:
F          C    G                Am
Hey boy, stop pacing around the room
        F              C          G         Am
Using other people's faces as a mirror for you
              F          C 
I know your lungs need filling
          G                        Am 
Since your gums have lost their feeling
   F                 C                      G    Am
But don't say that you're giving it up again

Verse 2:
F                 C
"Do you have a card?
       F       Am            F           C             G Am
My irregular heart beat is starting to correct itself"
           F         C            G             Am
It's just a simple diuretic that prevents the empathetic
        F                   C          G Am
From being just -  and giving it up

Chorus:
       F                                C
And you're the only thing that's going on in my mind
  G                     Am
Taking over my life a second time
  F                           C        
I don't have the capacity for xxxxing
                   G       Am
You're meant to be helping me
         F                        C            
When I said I liked it better without my money, I lied
    G                     Am
It took a little while to recognize
     Am F                         C G    
That I, I'm not giving it up again

Verse 3:
          F              C          G         Am
This conversation's not about reciprocation no more
            F              C          G         Am
But I'm gon' wait until you finish so I can talk some more
     F              C          G         Am
About me and my things, my car, my living
 F              C          G         Am
And how I'm giving it up, giving it up again

Chorus:
       F                                C
 And you're the only thing that's going on in my mind
  G                     Am
Taking over my life a second time
  F                           C        
I don't have the capacity for xxxxing
                   G       Am
You're meant to be helping me
         F                        C            
When I said I liked it better without my money, I lied
    G                     Am
It took a little while to recognize
     Am F                         C G    
That I, I'm not giving it up again

Bridge:
       Am                  
Oh the kick won't last for long
       Dm
But the song only lasts 3 minutes
   C                 
I think I've lost my phone
             E7
So won't you call it up for me?
       Am                  
Oh the kick won't last for long
        F
But the song only lasts 3 minutes
    C
And I know it's wrong
    E7
But give me one

Chorus:
       F                                C
 And you're the only thing that's going on in my mind
  G                     Am
Taking over my life a second time
  F                           C        
I don't have the capacity for xxxxing
                   G       Am
You're meant to be helping me
         F                        C            
When I said I liked it better without my money, I lied
    G                     Am
It took a little while to recognize
     Am F                         C G    
That I, I'm not giving it up again


Outro:
F C G Am  
I'm not giving it up
I'm not giving it up
I'm not giving it up
I'm not giving it up, giving it up
I'm not giving it up, giving it up
