 EmCmaj7
     Wrapt, in “Star Wars” sheets,
 EmCmaj7
     with my hand across your belly,
 GDCmaj7
     we waded through the watercolor.
 GDCmaj7
     we waded through the watercolor.
 EmCmaj7
     And drunk in your parents house,
 EmCmaj7
     junk coming out of your mouth,
 GDCmaj7
     we were buried in the ice sculpture,
 GDCmaj7
     we were buried in the ice sculpture,
 Cmaj7
     and you said
Chorus:
 GDAmC
 “I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
 GDAmC
 I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
 GDAmC
 I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
 CD
but how could I change my body?”

Second time through is basically the same but play a C maj to end it.

Verse 2:
 EmCmaj7
         I love the picture that your mother stole;
 EmCmaj7
 EmCmaj7EmCmaj7
     dad holds out the tiny piece he'll release from his soul -   
 GDC
     before he flew up in the helicopter,
 GDC
     before he swooped down as a door gunner,
 GDC
     before God gave him the favor
 GDC
     that meant he isn't getting others.

Chorus:
 GDAmC
 “I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
 GDAmC
 I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
 GDAmC
 I would be anything that you wanted me to be,
 CD
but how could I change my body?” 

Repeat a bunch to end. End on a Çmaj chord.
