How To Play

VERSE 1
    C#m
Has it come to this?
      C#m
We're stuck in the weeds
  C#m
I get it, I'm not perfect
      C#m
I was never trying to be
    C#m
But I'm not long for this earth
C#m                                      B
If we really only ever get one chance to burn
B                                     C#m
  I gotta trip before I can see the finish
C#m              B
How else would I learn?
B                                E
  I wanna know, how is it you do it?
 
CHORUS
         B            C#m
When you land on your feet
         A              E
You're a nimble bastard
        B            C#m
And you don't skip a beat
       A
Such a nimble bastard
E    B      C#m
Salt of the earth
         G#m         A
You're a nimble bastard
E               B
Won't you show, lowly us
C#m                A                   C#m
How do you see the stars from that far down? (Hah aah...)
 
VERSE 2
  C#m
I swing and I miss
    C#m
And then come the creeps
                    B
It makes me want to faint
B                                C#m
  I wanna know, how is it you do it? (Hah aah...)
C#m                  B
How do you spill the paint?
B                        E
  And then fit it into a frame?
 
CHORUS
         B            C#m
When you land on your feet
         A              E
You're a nimble bastard
        B            C#m
And you don't skip a beat
       A
Such a nimble bastard
E    B      C#m
Salt of the earth
         G#m         A
You're a nimble bastard
E               B
Won't you show, lowly us
C#m                A
How do you see the stars from that far down?
