Somebody Elses Clothes Rilo Kiley
[Am] [C] [F-F#-G] [C-E7-C]
[C]and you're ridin' in back [C]layin' here on your back
[F]you're as serious as a heart [C]attack
[C]all those picturesque moments [C]the sunsets glowin'
[F]through the back of the [C]van
[Am]and the water is diamonds there's [C]something you're hiding
[F]it's just your fatal [C]flaw
[Am]and you're tryin' to compose but just [C]being this happy
is like [F]walking around in [F#]somebody [G]else's [C-E7-C]clothes
and you all think i'm stupid, too nice, too aloof
there's no one in here at all
been on the road for so long singing self-obsessed songs
i'm always comin' as i'm goin'
and the water is diamonds there's something you're hiding
you wish you could just shout it out
"just fucking love me, i'm tired of leaving
and waking up in somebody else's clothes"
my dad's been in jail for two halves of a year
i got my first letter today it was simple and sad
it was painfully clear and this is how it read:
"my daughter this time well the water's not diamonds
i'm a fraud and i am old
and they found me out but just bein' your father
is like walking around in somebody else's clothes.
I'll be [C]out by [E7]the first [C]snow
wearing [C]somebody[E7] else's c[C]lothes"
