[B]Songs when they're truth are all ded[Abm]icated to you
In this invisi[E]ble world I choose to live in[B]
[B]And if you believe that for now I un[Abm]derstand
Why words mean so much t[E]o you
They'll never be about y[B]ou
[B]Maybe you're young without youth
Maybe you're [Abm]old without knowing anything's tru[E]e
I think you're young wit[B]hout youth

Repeat till chorus
[F#]Then you contract the Am[E]erican dream
You[Abm] never look up [F#]once
[F#]You've contracted Americ[E]an dreams
I r[Abm]equire you to s[F#]top and look up.
Chorus:
[B]Sing a song about my[F#]self
[Abm]Keep singing a song a[E]bout myself
[B]Not some inv[F#]isible wor[Abm]ld[E]
Verse: same as before
Constantly searching to find something new
But what will you find when you think that nothing's true
Maybe it's that nothing is new
So you let me hear songs that were written all about you
Because songs weren't written for you
They'll never be about you
Bridge 2: same chords as brigde 1
Then you contract the American dream
You never look up once
You've contracted American dreams
You never look up once, so don't look up
Chorus:
Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world
Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world
Middle 8:
[F#]I won't tell you what this mea[E]ns, ca[Abm]use you already kn[F#]ow
[F#]I won't tell you what this mea[E]ns, ca[Abm]use you already kn[F#]ow
Chorus:
Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world
Sing a song about myself
Keep singing a song about myself
Not some invisible world
(so you came along and found the weak spot that you've always wanted…)
Acoustic:
