Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Big Problem  Elliott Smith

[F#m]The problem I have with the soul[D] contraption
[A]Swallowed up slo[E]wly like a bad r[Bm]eaction
[F#m]All around what you do and say  [D]
[A]Well the symptom[E] falls further a[Bm]way
[F#m]You live in silence but you can'[D]t describe it
[A]So what's the po[E]int of talking a[Bm]t all?
[F#m]The store bought injury.. the fa[D]mily cane
[A]Just another boy[E] bad at the game[Bm]
[F#m]This is when you need a [D]friend to keep you moving around[A]        [E]  
[F#m]'Cause all your thinking has mad[D]e you slow
[A]You might be sto[E]pping out.. you [Bm]know

[A]Frustrated fireworks [F#m]inside your head
[F#m]There's a lit fuse smoking.. you[D] caught instead
[A]What you're dealing..[F#m] but it's just a start
[F#m]Was a time since your problem wa[D]s a poison dart
[A]And you act like a co[F#m]wboy.. whatever's in my hat
[F#m]I'm a hardboiled hero and I'm no[D]t so bad
[A]But I didn't know whe[F#m]n to run from this

[F#m]A proud fan is gonna see you sha[D]tter
[A]I know that ther[E]e really isn't a[Bm]nything the matter
[F#m]Nothing is gonna be crying words[D]..
[A]They only want t[E]heir voice to be[Bm] heard
[F#m]They use it sometimes to show th[D]at they're around
[A]Or they build yo[E]u up a theory li[Bm]ke the walls of a town
[F#m]A tired and ancient ruler right [D]now..
[A]The neighborhood[E] slaves are hard[Bm]ly skilled
[A]Open your parachute a[F#m]nd drop your weight
[F#m]Float on down to the center and [D]investigate
[A]I did my self require[F#m]ment
[F#m]Better cop out hard or I'll leav[D]e right now
[A]'Cause this feeling o[F#m]f loving I felt it in my chest
[F#m]Like the nighttime footsteps of [D]an unknown guest
[A]I know it wasn't me..[F#m] I wasn't moving..
[F#m]I felt thunder.. the rain was po[D]uring
[A]I know it must b[E]e something wron[Bm]g all this is restoring
[F#m]You don't have to live in a life[D]'s mistake
[A]Stay in the cent[E]er and wait     [A]
[A]Stay in the cent[E]er and wait     [A]
[A]Stay in the cent[E]er and wait.    [Bm]
