1.    Saw my shrink today, he said, girl, I can't help you,

                      E                                                         A

    I've been seeing you so long, but nothing has changed.

                    E                                                A

    You tried Adderall and alcohol, sadly the fact remains,

E                                                               A

    you're terminally normal, I'm sorry to say.

                B7                                                         A

    So I shaved my head, I changed my name, I gave my pills away.

‘Cause if I can't be someone else, if I can't be someone else,

         A                                                                                     E

oh, if I can't be someone else, I might as well be myself, myself.

            A

Be myself.

2.     Hanging with the hipsters is a lot of hard work.

    How many selfies can you take before you look like a jerk ?

                    E                                                                       A

    I took an Uber to a juice bar to hear a new indie band play,

                  E                                                  A

    they got 99 million followers in only one day.

                  B7                                                            A

    Well, I snapped that pic and I made the slip, I got into a stranger's car,

                     B7                                                        A

   well, the heels don't fit, I finally quit and headed back to my favorite bar.

 

               E                                       B7

‘Cause if I can't be someone else, if I can't be someone else,

         A                                                                                     E
