Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord    CmCm chord       GG chord                                   Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord
 Often I am upset that I cannot fall in love but I guess 
                  CmCm chord                       GG chord
This avoids the stress of falling out of it 
Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord        CmCm chord         GG chord                                      Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord
 Are you tired of me yet? I'm a little sick right now but I swear 
               CmCm chord                          GG chord
When I'm ready I will fly us out of here 

Chorus:
 EmEm chord  CC chord GG chord
 Ooo oo oo, I'll cut my hair 
 EmEm chord  CC chord  GG chord
 Ooo oo oo, To make you stare 
 EmEm chord  CC chord  GG chord
 Ooo oo oo I'll hide my chest 
           EmEm chord                        CmCm chord           GG chord
 And I'll figure out a way to get us out of here

 Ooo oo oo   x4

Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord              CmCm chord        GG chord                                           Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord
 Turn off your porcelain face, I can't really think right now and this place 
               CmCm chord                       GG chord
 Has too many colours enough to drive all of us insane 
           Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord      CmCm chord                 GG chord
 Are you dead? Sometimes I think I'm dead 
                                                 Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord
 Cause I can feel ghosts and ghouls wrapping my head 
                   CmCm chord                GG chord
 But I don't wanna fall asleep just yet 

Chorus:
 EmEm chord  CC chord  GG chord
 Ooo oo oo My eyes went dark 
 EmEm chord  CC chord  GG chord
 Ooo oo oo I don't know where 
 EmEm chord  CC chord  GG chord
 Ooo oo oo, My pupils are 
            EmEm chord                      CmCm chord           GG chord
 But I'll figure out a way to get us out of here 

Bridge:
EmEm chord                       
 Get a load of this monster 
AA chord
 He doesn't know how to communicate 
CC chord                              
His mind is in a different place 
 GG chord                                Bm7Bm7 chord
Will everybody please give him a little bit of space
EmEm chord 
 Get a load of this train wreck                               
AA chord                                              CC chord          
 His hair's a mess and he doesn't know who he is yet 
                Cmaj7Cmaj7 chord
 But little do we know, the stars 
                   GG chord
 Welcome him with open arms 

Chorus:
 EmEm chord  CC chord  GG chord 
 Ooo oo oo, Time is 
 EmEm chord  CC chord  GG chord
 Ooo oo oo, Slowly 
 EmEm chord  CC chord  GG chord
 Ooo oo oo, Tracing his face 
       EmEm chord         CmCm chord                      GG chord
 But strangely he feels at home in this place

  1. thanks so much for this!

  2. YESSS I’VE BEEN WAITING THANK YOU SO MUCH

  3. i recommend plucking the last chorus, e.g. you’re still using those chords but instead of strumming you’re plucking e c a and then strumming the last g chord

    • Actually, I suggest that instead of e c a g it’s e c a c, in my opinion it sounds better.

  4. Oops, I meant c e a e

  5. Soulali3

    Thanks so much!

    I just recently started listening to Cavetown. And this music literally gives me life. It means so much to me to be able to play this song.

  7. +5 is ehhhhhh kinda gooddddddd

  8. MoonsHarpoon

    Hey hey they finally posted my request! Thank you

  9. I suggest that intro, after playing the first three chords, play cmaj7, then cm, then play cm again but on the 5th fret for the A chord, then back to cm, and finally g. I think it sounds so much better honestly.
