My Manic And I  Laura Marling

[Bdim7]1st fret bar
2nd fret, 2nd string
3rd fret, 3rd and 5th string


Capo 1st fret


[Am]He wants to die in a lake in Geneva
The mountains can cover the s[Bdim7]hape of his nose
[Am]He wants to die where nobody can see him
But the beauty of his death will c[Bdim7]arry on so
[Am]I don’t believe him[Bdim7]
He g[Am]reets me with kisses when good days deceive him
And sometimes we're scorned and some[Bdim7]times I believe him
And some[Am]times I’m convinced that my friends think I’m crazy
Get scared and call him, but he’s u[Bdim7]sually hazy
At [Am]1 in the morning, the day is not ended
By[Bdim7] 2 he is scared that sleep is no friend
By [Am]4 he will drink but he cannot feel it
[Bdim7]Sleep will not come because sleep does not will it
And [Am]I don’t believe hi[Bdim7]m
Morning is m[Am]ocking me   [Bdim7]
I [Am]wander the streets, avoiding them eats
Till ring on my finger s[Bdim7]lips to the ground
A gift to the gutter, a gift to the city
The veins of which have broken me down
And I don’t believe him
Morning is mocking me


The [Am]gods that[G] he bel[Am]ieves     [G]
never [Am]fail to a[G]maze [Am]me     [G]
He believes in the love in his god of all things
But I find him wrapped up in all manner of sins
The drugs that deceive him and the girls that believe him
[Am]I can’t control you, I [G]don’t know you well
[F]These are the reasons I [Bdim7]think that you’re ill
[Am]I can’t control you, I [G]don’t know you well
[F]These are the reasons I [Bdim7]think that you’re ill


And since [Am]last that we parted l[Bdim7]ast that i saw him
down by a river, silent and hardened
Morning was mocking us, blood hit the sky
I was just happy, my manic and I
He couldn’t see me; the sun was in his eyes

Am? Bdim7? F G?
And birds were singing to calm us down
Am? Bdim7? F E
And birds were singing to calm us down


[Am]And I’m sorry young man, I ca[G]nnot be your friend.
I don’t believe in a fairytale end
I don’t keep my head up all of the time
I find it dull when my heart meets my mind
[Am]And I hardly know you, I th[G]ink I can tell
[F]These are the reasons I t[Bdim7]hink that we're ill
[Am]I hardly know you, I t[G]hink I can tell
[F]These are the reasons I t[Bdim7]hink that I'm ill

And the [Am]gods that [G]he bel[Am]ieves  [G]  never f[Am]ail to dis[G]appoint [Am]me      [G]
And the gods that he believes never fail to disappoint me

My [Am]nihilist, my [Bdim7]happy man, my [Am]manic and [Bdim7]I
Am? Bdim7? F? E
Have no plans to move on

Am? G? F Bdim7
And the birds are singing to calm us down
Am? G? F E
And the birds are singing to calm us down

[Am]
