[C] she kills, with f[G]oreign films, the[F] emptiness of day to day
[C] and i wait 'til the [G]weekend comes
so i can[F] clear this uselessness from my brai[C]n

but [F]i know that none of them will wo[C]rk because

but i c[Am]an't go through with [G]it because the [Am]truth would hurt too m[G]uch

[C] and i would pr[G]ay for rain if [F]i thought that it would h[C]elp
