Backburner Chords

[Intro]
G D Am C
 
[Verse 1]
        G                               D
I can't lie, it feels nice that you're calling
          Am                         C
You sound sad and alone, and you're stalling
         G                                D
And for once, I don't care about what you want
                    Am                        C
As long as we keep talking (As long as we're talking)
                    G                           D
I mean, you gotta admit the history's kind of unmatched
           Am                        C
Asian Calvinism, we made it out of that
                     G
Well, whether we're free of will or predestined
         D                                Am
Clearly, I've not learned my lesson even now
                           C
Hope he doesn't strike me down (Strike me down)
 
[Pre-Chorus]
     C                 D
The Goo Goo Dolls are dead to me
     G       D         C
The way you should be, too
          C
But you bring them up
          D
Along with how much I fucking miss you
 
[Chorus]
G                    D                            Am
  Maybe I'm just not better than this, I haven't tried
                     C                         G
Maybe life's less romantic when I don't wanna die
G                     D
You'd think I'd be a fast learner
             Am                      C               G
But guess I won't ever mind crisping up on your backburner
 
[Post-Chorus]
G
Backburner
    D
Your backburner
    Am
Your backburner
    C
Your backburner
 
[Verse 2]
         G                            D
It's pathetic, but at least you are, too
D                    Am
I don't know what to do
                           C
I don't like anyone except sometimes you
                G
And now you're sounding like a hurt puppy
         D
You look ugly when you cry
            Am
But I'm the one you think to call
                 C                             G
How do you feel lucky and appalled at the same time?
                     D
After everything you put me through
                   Am              G
I somehow still believe in you, oh-oh
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
    C            D
But I know in a week or so
        G     D    C
You'll fade away again
            C
And I wish that I cared
               D
Hey, are you still there? Good
 
[Chorus 2]
G                    D                            Am
  Maybe I'm just not better than this, I haven't tried
                              C                              G
'Cause maybe you'll finally choose me after you've had more time
G                  D
I thought I was a fast learner
             Am                      C               G
But guess I won't ever mind, guess I won't ever mind
G                D                        Am
Maybe I blame my mother bleeding into my stride
                 C                       G
Maybe it was my father and his wandering eyes
G                                          D
(It's their fault that) I'll always be in your corner
          Am                        C                   G         D
'Cause I don't feel alive 'til I'm burnin' on your backburner, oh-oh
 
 
[Outro]
           Am                        C                  G         D
Oh, and I know that it's sad that I settle for the backburner, oh-oh
             Am                      C               G         D
Oh, guess I won't ever mind crisping up on your backburner, oh-oh
                          Am                 C       G
Oh, as long as you still think of me, oh, oh-oh (backburner)
