Verse 1 chords:
[D]Nico [A]take it [G]slow, s[A]how me that you [D]care
And l[A]ove's not just a f[G]lare on [A]my sle-e-[D]eve
Sleep [A]well, I pray that c[G]ardboard boxes, s[A]et the perfect s[D]tage.
'Cause [A]wood grain makes all [G]man made t[A]hings [B]seem so [A]out of date[D]
Life is not a [B]play, it's w[A]hat we,[Bb] make of the people we l[A]ove.
Chorus 1 Chords:
[D]Snails see the [A]benefits, the[G] beauty in [A]every inch
Oh [D]why, why, w[A]hy, why, why, [G] are you quick to k[A]iss?
She [D]bites at [A]blades and l[G]eaves, God [A]damn you shrubbe[D]ry
Well I'm s[A]ick of vani[G]ty pl[A]ays, should we m[B]ove to the [A]UK?[D]
'Cause life here in the [B]states has [A]escaped
[Bb]All the people ab[A]ove us,[Bb] what we make of those p[A]eople we love
Chorus 2 Chords:
[D]Snails see the b[A]enefits the [G]beauty in [A]every inch

Baby, [D]maybe I sp[A]oke too soon
I'll [G]touch you once you [A]make the first move
[D]Snails see the [A]benefits the[G] beauty in every [A]inch
Verse 2: repeat Chorus 2 chord structure
I watch her as she runs, my mother jumps the gun
She puts her in her arms, that is just like my mom
Never lets go, never lets me grow old, I wanna pay her back
But love is nothing you can tax
My family's not rich by any means
But I feel we won the lottery, that day
The rock swallowed the girl, and I cried as cameras caught my eyes
My tears turned into butterflies, they fly away as caskets close
A new day comes you'll wake unfolding, smile when you feel the sunlight
You feel the sunlight, you feel the sunlight
Outro Chorus: Use Chorus 2 chord structure
Snails see the benefits, the beauty in every inch
So why, why, why, why, why, are you quick to kiss?
Baby, maybe I spoke too soon
I'll touch you once you make the first move
Snails see the benefits, the beauty in every inch, oh
Snails see the benefits, the beauty in every inch
