‘Ordinary’ Ukulele Chords

Arr Joriah Kwame Jacob Lindquist

[Verse 1]
E chordE
I notice how she looks at me
E chordE
But I pretend that I don't see
A chordA Am chordAm
It's easier if I let the tension subside
E chordE
I've seen it in the books I read
E chordE
A chordA magic that you cannot see
A chordA
There's no limitations
Am chordAm
They wear it with pride


[Pre-Chorus]
B chordB E chordE
But the characters I read never act or look like me
B chordB E chordE
I can't depend on them to lead me through the right door
Bm chordBm D chordD
And what's the point of falling when I know I'm only stalling
D chordD B chordB
Cause I have to go back home


[Chorus]
E chordE
Where I'm just one in the herd
B chordB
Tripping ovеr my words
A chordA
Trying hard to go with the grain
B chordB
Keeping the quirks in my brain
E chordE B chordB
I'm on the brink of discovеry I think
A chordA
But what if I'm dreaming
B chordB
That's what it seems like

E chordE A chordA
Cause this girl thinks I'm part of her world
A chordA Am chordAm
And that new territory's scary
D chordD A chordA
If I turn the handle am I asking for a scandal
B chordB E chordE
Should I try to be ordinary


[Verse 2]
Baaah!
E chordE
I've always been a little odd
E chordE
The only pea inside the pod
A chordA
That's not an expression I'm guessing
Am chordAm
Oh well
E chordE (slide finger on G chordG,C chordC & E chordE strings from 4th fret to the 3rd and then back)
See That's exactly what I mean
E chordE
I'm just as awkward as I seem
A chordA
Plus she makes me nervous
Am chordAm
I hope she can't tell


[Pre-Chorus]
B chordB E chordE
What is it she sees in this cluster clump of me
B chordB E chordE
Or could it maybe be I'm going crazy
Bm chordBm
And hey Who am I kidding
D chordD
This isn't some sweet beginning
D chordD B chordB
Just a detour to the end


[Chorus]
E chordE
Then back to the herd
B chordB
Tripping over my words
A chordA
Trying hard to go with the grain
B chordB
Keeping the quirks in my brain
E chordE B chordB
I'm on the brink of discovery I think
A chordA Am chordAm
But what if I'm dreaming


[Bridge]
A chordA A chordA
Do I rewind Induce amnesia
E chordE E chordE
Pretend I didn't see her
A chordA A chordA
Succumb to stupid fear
E chordE G#m chordG#m A chordA
Or just believe in my heart Heart
Am chordAm
Why play a part


[Chorus]
E chordE
Why follow the herd
B chordB
Why not trust in my words
A chordA
Don't wanna go with the grain
B chordB
Why try to make myself plain
E chordE B chordB
I'm on the brink of rediscovery I think
A chordA
So what if I'm dreaming
B chordB
I like the scene that I'm in


[Outro]
E chordE A chordA
And this girl is a part of this world
A chordA Am chordAm
The thought of being normal's far more scary
A chordA
I'll be brave and I'll be kind
A chordA
I'll make a choice and change my mind
Am chordAm
I will mess up all the time
Am chordAm
They'll say I'm weird but I'll be fine
B chordB B chordB E chordE
I'll be anything but ordinary
