What I’m Here For

Capo 2nd Fret

C x32010
F 133211
Am x02210

You can use the following chords if you don't have a capo:D,G, and Bm. But you won't be able to get that moving note in the F chord, so I think it is better to play it with a capo on the 2nd fret.

[Verse 1]
C             F         Am        F  
..You're uncertain and you're unwell
C         F              Am           C
Rags to riches but your heart can't tell
            F           Am       F
That don't mean you're?going?to hell
C                    F         Am
But that's?how the story goes.....
C               F             Am        F   
You're like a?phoenix rising from the ashes
C               F             Am         
..But all you care about is death and taxes
C        F           Am          F     
..Being famous takes too much practice
C           F       Am
I wish it wasn't so....
C              F               Am            F
..I spent my twenties in the lights of the disco
C           F                Am   
Trying to prove that I could be a hero
C              F            Am                F   
..There were times when it felt like I was winning
C            F             Am   
But looking back, it only lasted a minute
C               F          Am       F   
I watched my friends take over the radio
C           F           Am    
All it did was drill a hole in my ego
C     F                Am               F   
I forgot what goodness was outside my window
C              F         Am
Ain't that the way the story goes?

[Chorus]
C   F          Am      F   
I don't need silver linings
C  F         Am   
I don't need so much more
C   F        Am         F          C  
I just need room to be wrong sometimes
        F        Am   
That's all I'm hoping for
C  F        Am         F  
I feel like we could find it
C       F          Am   
If we knocked on Heaven's door
C    F              Am     F  
I'd say, "God, I'm only human"
C      F                 Am         
You'd say, "That's what I'm here for"

[Verse 2]
C              F          Am            F    
..I spent my teens making out in the stairwell
C         F               Am    
Inside a church that went long 'cause the spirit fell
C       F               Am            F   
I was really trying to mean something to someone
C           F            Am   
But at the time I just thought that it was fun

[Chorus]
C   F          Am      F   
I don't need silver linings
C  F         Am   
I don't need so much more
C   F        Am         F          C  
I just need room to be wrong sometimes
        F        Am   
That's all I'm hoping for
C  F        Am         F  
I feel like we could find it
C       F          Am   
If we knocked on Heaven's door
C    F              Am     F  
I'd say, "God, I'm only human"
C      F                 Am         
You'd say, "That's what I'm here for"

C        F         Am        F 
..La la, la la la, la la la, la la la
C      F         Am 
La la, la la la, la la la
C      F         Am        F 
La la, la la la, la la la, la la la
C      F         Am
La la, la la la, la la la

[Chorus]
C   F          Am      F   
I don't need silver linings
C  F         Am   
I don't need so much more
C   F        Am         F          C  
I just need room to be wrong sometimes
        F        Am   
That's all I'm hoping for
