  w/rhy fig 1

  I'm so happy 'cause today I've found my friends.

  They're in my head.

  I'm so ugly, but that's okay, 'cause so are you.

  We've broken our mirr'rs.

  Sunday morning is ev'ry day for all I care.

  And I'm not scared.

  

  w/rhy fig 1  except last bar

  Light my candles in a daze 'cause I've found God.



  B5(x244xx)   D5(x577xx) or (xx023x)    E5(022xxx)   G#5(466xxx)  

                          C#5(x466xx)    A5(x022xx)   C5(x355xx)



 *I'm going to put an "N" that means to play open chords(000xxx) as

  I don't know how to put them.

  

  Here you do a slide from B5 to D5 with ditortion, then you play this

  chords.-

     E5 X2, N, G#5 X2, N, C#5 X2, N, A5 X3 N, C5 X3 (slide to) D5 X3,

     B5 X4 (slide to) D5 X2



        That's the chorus, repeat it, then 

        

  w/rhy fig. 1

  I'm so lonely but that's okay I shaved my head.

  And I'm not sad.

  And just maybe I'm to blame for all I've heard.

  But I'm not sure.

  I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there.

  But I don't care.

  I'm so horny, but that's okay. My will is good.

        

  Repeat chorus

 

  A5(577xxx)  C5(x355xx)



 A5    C5     A5       C5          A5

   I like it, I'm not gonna crack.

       C5      A5       C5          A5

   I miss you, I'm not gonna crack.

       C5      A5       C5          A5

   I love you, I'm not gonna crack.
