Clean and regular


Capo 4th

VERSE
G            Em
She feels all little messed up inside
G               Em
It’s the pressure she can’t hide

BRIDGE
C         D
Wants to go badly
G    D#    Em
But just can’t work it out
C                                               D
I’ll win her heart when I help her out

CHORUS
G Em C D
To be clean and regular, is her ambition in life
If she was clean and regular, it would all be alright

VERSE
When something’s wrong, deep down
She’s not a pleasure to be around

BRIDGE
Not feeling so well
And as far as she can tell
There’s nothing can be done

CHORUS
To be clean and regular, is her ambition in life
If she was clean and regular, it would all be alright
I’ll take her, fresh fruit in the morning, Triphala at night
I’ll make her, clean and regular, she’ll love me alright

MIDDLE
The thoughts she can’t explain
Lie inside her second brain

BRIDGE
She’s got a little behind
Has got some catching up to do
Her backlogs getting big

CHORUS

BRIDGE
She gets a little pent-up
When things don’t go with the flow
Having troubles, down below

Trastevere

VERSE
G
There at the heart
C
Of the ancient city of Rome
G
There is a place
C
That I have come to call my home

BRIDGE
Em
A place that lives
C
A place that breathes
D
A place I pray

CHORUS
G
Trastevere
Em
I belong to you always
C
The streets that I walk through
Em
This place that I’ve come to
D
And here I’ll stay

VERSE
If you could talk
Stories more rich than I can dream
The thousands of years
And all the lives that you have seen

BRIDGE
Em
Lives long come and gone
C
While you carry on

VERSE
Across the river
You’re a giant slumbering there
You bask in the heat of the day
Lie there without any care

BRIDGE
Until you open yourself up to the night
Such a spectacular sight
You live to play

CHORUS

MIDDLE
C
You’re like no other place
D
With your age old beauty
C
That chips but never fades
D
I breathe you in

CHORUS (instrumental)

Woe are those with internet

VERSE 1
Em Am
Mat was married and unhappy
44 years old and pining for his youth
Pining ain’t ever no use
C
Blamed his children, blamed his wife
Am Em
Cursed his choices, cursed his life

BRIDGE
Am Em
Spent evenings along surfing pornography
Watching girls on girls younger than his daughter
Thinking he were young

CHORUS
G D C
You’ve got to know when the time isn’t right
You’ve got to know it’s your fate you can’t fight
You’ve got to go with the cycle of life
Am Em
Live what you are, not what you were

VERSE 2
Thelma was divorced at 46
Said she’d never felt so alive
But soon she became lonely
Needed someone new
G Am C
And was hitchhiking back down the road

BRIDGE
Joined an interent dating site
Met a guy, tried again, soon they fight
Am C Em
All she feels is rejected

CHORUS

MIDDLE
C Am
Anything you want you can get
C G
With a couple of clicks upong the net
Dm
But anything you want
Am
Isn’t something that you have
C D
And only what you have can make you happy

CHORUS

Love alone


VERSE
Bm
She’s not a fan of the sun
A
Hides away from everyone
Bm
Though she knows that it’s wrong
A
She thinks nothing can be done

BRIDGE
E
She’s unhappy
Bm
She don’t know why
E
So unhappy
Bm E
Inside she cries, cries, cries, cries, cries

CHORUS
A
Love alone can set her free
Bm
Love alone can make her see
E
Love alone is what she needs
A
Love alone is sanctuary
Bm E
But not the askless devotion of a mother
Bm E
Nor the warm caress of a lover
E A
But the care she shows for another

VERSE
Instead she lives life like a dream
Moving things around her screen
The world is controlled the world is clean
Her only solace is routine

BRIDGE + CHORUS

OUTRO
C#m                        A
Sometimes she feels like
E                             F#
The world is out to get her

Sometimes she feels like
The future's nothing better

Sometimes she feels like
Hope is all but lost

Sometimes she feels like
And was it worth the effort

Sometimes she feels like x4
