Ordinary

Verse 1
                 E       Emaj7
I notice how she looks at me
                    E        Emaj7
But I pretend that I don't see
               G#m                  E (note)
It's easier if I let the tension subside

Verse 2
                    E         Emaj7
I've seen it in the books I read
                 E       Emaj7
A magic that you cannot see
               G#m
There's no limitations
                  Aadd9
They wear it with pride

Bridge 1
        G#m/B        B
But the characters I read
      Esus2            E
Never act or look like me
        B                                     Esus2 E
I can't depend on them to lead me through the right door!

Pre-Chorus 1
    D#m                 E
And what's the point of falling
       D             Aadd9
When I know I'm only stalling
         D            Bsus4   B
'cause I have to go back home

Chorus 1
                          C#m
Where I'm just one in the herd!
                 B
Tripping over my words
                  Aadd9
Trying hard to go with the grain
            Bsus4        Cdim
Keeping the quirks in my brain


           C#m
I'm on the brink of discovery
  B
I think
                F#add9
But what if I'm dreaming
               Bsus4 B
That's what it seems like

Chorus 2
            C#m
'cause this girl
                       Eaug/C
Thinks I'm part of her world
             A           Am
And that new territory's scary


D
If I turn the handle
     A
Am I asking for a scandal
B                      E     Emaj7
Should I try to be ordinary?
             B (note) E
mmBAAAAAAAH

Verse 3
                     E      Emaj7
I've always been a little odd
                 E        Emaj7
The only pea inside the pod
              G#m
That's not an expression, I'm guessin'
N.C.
Oh well


Verse 4
      A      Cdim  E        Emaj7
See that's exactly what I mean!
                     E     Emaj7
I'm just as awkward as I seem
                  G#m
Plus she makes me nervous
                 Aadd9
I hope she can't tell

Bridge 2
Bsus4          B
What is it she sees?
        E
In this cluster-clump of me
N.C.   B                           D  E
        Or could it maybe be I'm going crazy
    D#m           E
And hey, who am I kidding?
     D                  A
This isn't some sweet beginning
       D             Bsus4
Just a detour to the end

Chorus 3
                 C#m
Then back to the herd!
                 B
Tripping over my words
                  Aadd9
Trying hard to go with the grain
            Bsus4        B
Keeping the quirks in my brain

    Eaug   C#m                   B
I'm on the brink of discovery, I think
                F#add9  A
But what if I'm dreaming?

Bridge 3
   A
Do I rewind, induce amnesia?
G#m
        Pretend I didn't see her
A
        Succumb to stupid fear
C#m       B           F#add9
Or just believe in my heart?
                   C  D
Why play a pa-art?

Chorus 4
               C#m
Why follow the herd?
                    B
Why not trust in my words?
                 Aadd9
I don't wanna go with the grain
           Bsus4       B
Why try to make myself plain?


    Eaug   C#m                     B
I'm on the brink of rediscovery, I think
               F#add9
So what if I'm dreaming?
           B
I like the scene that I'm in

Chorus 5
         C#m                    Eaug
And this girl is a part of this world
                     A                 Am
The thought of being normal's far more scary

Post-Chorus 2
F#m
I'll be brave and I'll be kind!

I'll make a choice and change my mind!
A
I'll mess up all the time
                                       F#
They'll say I'm weird, but I'll be fine
         B                         E
And I'll be anything but ordinary!
