A Better Son / Daughter  Rilo Kiley

[C]Sometimes in the morning i am [F]petrified and [C]can't move
[F]Awake but cannot [C]open my [G]eyes
And the [C]weight is crushing down on my [F]lungs i know i can't [C]breath
And [F]hope someone will [C]help me this [G]time
Your [C]mother's still calling you [F]insane and [C]high
[F]Swearing it's [C]different this [G]time
And you [C]tell her to give in to the [F]demons that [C]possess her
And that [F]god ever [C]blessed her [G]insides
Then you [C]hang up the phone and feel [F]badly for [C]upsetting things
And [F]crawl back into [C]bed to dream [G]of a time
When your [C]heart was open wide and you lo[F]ved things just be[C]cause
Like the [F]sick and the [C]dying[G]
And [C]sometimes when you're on you'r[F]e really fucking[C] on
And your [F]friends they sing [C]along and they [G]love you
But the [C]lows are so extreme that the [F]good seems fucking [C]cheap
And it [F]teases you for [C]weeks in its [G]absense
But you'll [C]fight and you'll make it through
You'll [F]fake it if you [C]have to
And you'll [F]show up for [C]work with a [G]smile
And you'll be be [C]better you'll be smarter
More grown [F]up and a better [C]daughter
Or [F]son and a [C]real good [G]friend
And you'll be [C]awake and you'll be alert
You'll be [F]positive though it [C]hurts
And you'll [F]laugh and e[C]mbrace all your[G] friends
And you'll be a [C]real good listener
You'll be [F]honest you'll be [C]brave
You'll be [F]handsome you'll be [C]beautiful
You'll be [G]happy
same chords persist throughout the solo
Your [C]ship may be coming in
You're [F]weak but not giving [C]in
To the [F]cries and the [C]wails of the [G]valley below
Your [C]ship may be coming in
You're [F]weak but not giving [C]in
And you'll [F]fight it you'll go [C]out fighting [G]all of them
