Don't want to hear about it, every single one's got a story to tell Everyone knows about it, from the Queen of England to the hounds of hell And if I catch it coming back my way, I'm gonna serve it to you And that ain't what you want to hear, but that's what I'll do And a feeling coming from my bones says find a home |

I'm going to Wichita, far from this opera, forever more I'm going to work the straw, make the sweat drip out of every pore And I'm bleeding and I'm bleeding and I'm bleeding, right before my Lord All the words are going to bleed from me and I will think no more And the stains coming from my blood tell me go back home |

I Want To Be The Boy To Warm Your Mother's Heart

I want to be the boy to warm your mother's heart
G
D
I'm so scared to take you away
D
C
I tried to win her over right from the start
G
D
But something always got in the way
We've been sitting in your backyard for hours But she won't even come out and say hi While my mother baked a little cake for you
G
(
F
) And even dreaded when you said goodbye
F
G
What kind of cartwheels do I have to pull?
D
What kind of joke should I lay on her now?
F

I'm inclined to go finish high school
A
Just to make her notice that I'm around

Well nothing I come up with seems to work It feels like everything I say is a lie And never have I felt like such a jerk I'm afraid to even open my eyes Because I really don't want her to judge me I want her to really know who I am And then and only then will she love me Well at least that was the plan If ever a boy needed a holiday If ever a girl needed someone to hold I just hope I don't act the same way By the time that I get that old What kind of cartwheels do I have to pull? What kind of joke should I lay on her now? I'm inclined to go finish high school Just to make her notice that I'm around I never said I was the heir to a fortune I never claimed to have any looks But these kind of things must be important
G
(
F
) Because somebody ripped out my page in your telephone book
D
I wanna warm her heart
