Passiona Chords by The Smith Street Band

[Intro]
C Am F x2
[Verse 1]
    C                                   Am     F   C                         Am      F         [stop]
The people in the apartments across the street,    literally and metaphorically look down on me
C
Tangled in tenderness
    Am           F
Why do I have to live like this?
      C
I was tempted by your company
    Am             F
And you've already noticed me
    C                           Am                  F
I'm sorry for what I say when I don't know what I'm saying
    C                                   Am              F
And you don't have to play this cat and mouse game I am playing
           C                      Am              F
I'm just a pretty sad person in a quite surreal place
            C                             Am                      F
And I don't look up from my phone because I know I won't see your face
           C      Am         F                 C [stop]
And it's pathetic, it's also not a competition
[Chorus]
        C          F          Am                      G
And I'm absolutely infinitely more scared of you than you are of me
         C               F                 Am   [stop]
And I've always been the one who cares too much
[Verse 2]
      C                    F          F
And I hope you're happy, I hope you've slept
             Am                         G
I'll try not write another record about the pain in my chest
            C                   F                   Am   [stop]
I'm just so glad I could be someone that you wanted
            C                                 Am            F
And I don't recognise these stars, I'm unfamiliar with this skyline
      C                                   Am               F
I was born and bred in bars, now nothing man-made is in my eyeline
         C                                Am              F
Turn and walk back to the house that they saved after the war
         C
And I am questioned once again
               Am              F
Get asked what I would do that for
        C
And our host tells me I'm sick
         Am            F
Tentatively hands me a spliff
           C
And I know he's forgotten my name
      Am                F
But I don't remember his
[Chorus]
        C          F          Am                      G
And I'm absolutely infinitely more scared of you than you are of me
         C               F                 Am   [stop]
And I've always been the one who cares too much
[Hook]
       F              C            Am
And oh god if only it was that easy to run
                  G                            F
From what I've achieved, I've let it define me
                  C                 Am
I'm having panic attacks on German TV
                 G                        F
This is not work ethic, it's survival technique
                           C
And there's nothing I can really do
   Am                            G                               F
So I sit in the band room, start fights to get attention from you
                           C                         Am
There is nothing I am qualified or smart enough to do
                               G                               F G F
Sit in the band room and start fights to get attention from you
[Verse 3]
       C                              Am             F
I walk off into the corn field, every cut's a new relief
             C                         Am              F
I might stop talking altogether if you stop talking to me
           C
And if I'm really supposed to be here
               Am              F
Why has no one come to that conclusion
           C
I'm out of place amongst the band boys
        Am          F
I can't suspend disillusion
    C                                 Am                  F
And music industry professionals yeah they can all go and fuck themselves
    C                      Am                    F                    C
And it's just me and Chris,   but he's stoned as shit and passing out
                        Am               F    C
That was okay once, for some reason it's sad now
    Am               F   C        Am               F    C
For some reason it's sad now, for some reason it's sad
