Get Me Away From Here  Belle and Sebastian

[F#]Oh! Get me a[C#]way from here I'm d[Ebm]ying
Play me a [Bbm]song to set me [B]free
Nobody [F#]writes them like they [B]used to
So it [C#]may as well be [F#]me
Here on my [C#]own now after [Ebm]hours
Here on my [Bbm]own now on a [B]bus
Think of it [F#]this way
You could [G#]either be [B]successful or be [C#]us
With our [B]winning smiles, and [C#]us
With our [B]catchy tunes and [C#]words
Now we're [B]photogenic
You [Ebm]know [Bbm]we don't stand a [B]chance ([F#]we don't stand a [B]chance)

B - F# a few times

< Same pattern as first verse >

Verse 2:
Oh I'll settle down with some old story
About a boy who's just like me
Thought there was love in everything and everyone
You're so naive!
They always tell a sorry story
They always get it in the end
Still it was worth it as I turned the pages solemnly, and then

With a winning smile the boy
With naivety succeeds
At the final moment, I cried
I always cry at endings

B - F# again a few times

Verse 3:
Oh, that wasn't what I meant to say at all
>From where I'm sitting, rain
Washing against the lonely tenement
Has set my mind to wander
Into the windows of my lovers
They never know unless I write
"This is no declaration, I just I'd let you know goodbye"

Said the hero in the story
"It is mightier than swords
I could kill you sure
But I could only make you cry with these words"

Cry with these words
Ooh! Get me away I'm dying

B - F# to end
