[Bm] [A] [E] [Bm] Caterpillar crawling [A]up the big phone pole
[E] Is there somebody that you want to [G]talk to
[D] You know that pretty soon[CG], you'll be able to fly
[G] How is this going to affect you
Do you think it might [D]wreck you
Your friends might reject you
You say you took it too [DC]far
Said yo[G]u want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be...
[DG] [D] [G] [DG] [D] [B] Put down glossy pictures and [A]drugs I've never seen
[E] We'll treat you with advice from a [G]fashion magazine
[D] And one day she just walked in[CG]to that magazine
[G] I wonder if she'll ever come back
They all said she [D]would crack
They said her mind was one-track
They said she took it too [DC]far
Said you [G]want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be...
[DG]DG [D]D [G](... solo ...)
[Bm] Every time you move your [A]lips
[E] Well, let me give you a few [G]tips
[D] Yesterday you were too [CG]young
[G] Tomorrow you will be too old
To regret all the things you've done
Who you trying to [D]hustle
Somebody want to show your muscle
Second hand [DC]excuses never went too [G]far
What's this scene you're [D]making
Your ideas have been taken
We'll seek when you [DC]awaken
Alone in someone's [G]car
You just stood there [D]shaking
You stood there shaking
They said you were [DC]faking
Said you [G]want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be
[DG] [D] [G] [DG]Closer [D]to the [Bm]stars.
