You Are My Incentive
By Kevin Devine
Your bear[G]ings are shot and your c[D7]ar don't work like she used to[C] [C]
Your fri[G]ends don't call and they do[D7]n't even bother with offe[C]ring excu[C]ses
Your T[G]V is on, but it's al[D7]ways on, so it's use[C]less[C]
Just the a[G]wful news and the s[D7]orry truth that we're defi[C]nitely sinki[C]ng
So I wou[G]ldn't ho[D7]ld my br[C]eath if [D7]I were yo[G]u[G]
You'll just h[D7]urt your chest and your f[C]ace'll tu[D7]rn bright [G]blue[G]
This is h[D7]ow it's gonne b[C]e,This is h[D7]ow it'll be and there's not[C]hing that w[D7]e
can d[G]o[G]
And if you st[D7]art believing that I'll stop ho[C]lding my[D7] breath to[G]o[G]
You've been pra[G]ying for change but you ai[D7]n't seen a church since the [C]10th
You cr[G]y at your job, don't be[D7]lieve in your vote, and never [C]celebrate your
So you s[G]et up a dinner to ma[D7]ke you feel less de[C]sperate, and worth[C]less
But your [G]dad gets drunk so your m[D7]om throws a fit while your [C]man hits on the
So I wo[G]uldn't w[D7]aste my t[C]ime if [D7]I were y[G]ou[G]
You'll just s[D7]nap your spine and s[C]trip a[D7]way your y[G]outh[G]
This is h[D7]ow it's gonne [C]be, This is h[D7]ow it i'll be and there's not[C]hing that [D7]we
can [G]do[G]
And if you st[D7]art believing that I'll stop wa[C]sting my[D7] time t[G]oo[G]
Because you're my incentiv[G]e
And if y[C]ou go, [D7]I go too[G] [G] [G] [G]
