Not the Doctor   Alanis Morissette

E--------------------------------0 (x2 = 4 instead of 0)



[E]I don\'t want to be the filler if the void is solely yours
I don\'t want to be your glass of single malt whiskey
Hidden in the bottom drawer
I don\'t want to be the bandage if the wound is not mine
Lend me some fresh air
I don\'t want to be adored for what I merely represent to you
I don\'t want to be to be your babysitter
You\'re a very big boy now
I don\'t want to be you mother
I didn\'t carry you in my womb for nine months
Show me the back door

[G]Visiting hours are [A]9 to 5 and if I [E]show up at half past six
Well I[G] already [A]know that you\'d find[E] some way to sneak me in and oh
[G]  Mind the empty [A]bottle with the [E]holes along the bottom
You see it\'[F#]s too much to ask for and [Am7]I am not the doctor  [E]

I don\'t want to be the sweeper of the eggshells that you walk upon
I don\'t want to be your other half I believe that 1 and 1 make 2
I don\'t want to be your food or the light from the fridge
on your face at midnight
Hey what are you hungry for
I don\'t want to be the glue that holds your pieces together
I don\'t want to be your idol
See this pedestal is high and I\'m afraid of heights
I don\'t want to be lived through
A vicarious occasion
Please open the window

(repeat chorus)

I don\'t want to live on someday when my motto is last week
I don\'t want to be responsible for your fractured heart
and its wounded beat
I don\'t want to be a substitute for the smoke you\'ve been inhaling
What do you thank me
What do you thank me for

(repeat chorus)
