This one is an older song, but it checks out. It’s a random one, but it has some decent lines in it – I think so, at least. You can listen to it in the player below or click here to listen to it on Soundcloud.
INTRO/VERSE: C Am F G
BRIDGE: Am G
CHORUS: Em Am G
She asked me if I’d say goodbye, I crossed my heart and said “I’d rather die”, but I know it’s only an illusion.
Six cigarettes and seven cans, I couldn’t count them on both my hands, but I… would die…
Without them… without them… this I know…
My greatest fear is being buried alive, but all that vanishes with cider inside.
My greatest treasure is the words that I write, but nothing matters when you’re lonely at night.
So I sing about the faces that I knew when I was young,
some have gone, some have stayed. Some are desperate to get fucking laid.
Which are you? Which are you? Which are you?
So when you’re lying in your bed, carry on regardless.
Because we’re dying for a drink and we would give up everything,
and if we can’t go out winning then at least we’ll go out singing,
So when the kids that used to bully you are having children of their own
and when your family resents you ‘cause you left your childhood home.
Just remember you’re not laughing ‘cause that joke’s been over told
And at 22, your young mind knows your body’s growing old.
