Alanis Morissette


Intro Riff

 

Verse Riff

You like snow but only if it's warm

You like rain but only if it's dry

      C                                 Dsus2                         E

No sentimental value to the rose that fell on your floor

     C                                         Dsus2                    E

No fundamental excuse for the granted I'm taken for

 

CHORUS:

                C      G

'Cause it's easy not to

               C        G

So much easier not to

               C                           Dsus2                  E

And what goes around never comes around to you

 

Verse Riff x2

 

Verse Riff

You like pain but only if it doesn't hurt too much

You sit...and you wait...to receive

                 C                                             Dsus2                      E

There's an obvious attraction to the path of least resistance in your life

                 C                                          Dsus2                         E

There's an obvious aversion no amount of my insistance could make you try tonight

 

Chorus

 

      C       Dsus2     E       C   Dsus2 E

To you to you to you to you to you...

Verse Riff

There's no love no money no thrill anymore

 

                  C                                    Dsus2                          E

There's an apprehensive naked little trembling boy with his head in his hands

                  C                                         Dsus2                       E

There's an underestimated and impatient little girl raising her hand

 

Chorus

 

C        Dsus2  E

To you, to you

      C        Dsus2     E

get up get up get up off of it

      C        Dsus2      E

get up get up get up off of it

      C        Dsus2              E

get out get outta here enough already

      C        Dsus2    E

get up get up get up off of it

 

Wake up!
