Freshmen - The Verve Pipe

E                       A
when I was young I knew everything
    C#m                   B    A
and she a punk who rarely ever took advice
        E                              A
now I'm guilt stricken sobbing with my head on the floor
C#m                  B     A
stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice,  now

C#m  B  A
          I can't be held responsible
C#m  B          A
         'cause she was touching her face
C#m  B      A
          I won't be held responsible
C#m  B                A
          she fell in love in the first place

E                   A
for the life of me, I cannot remember
C#m                     B       A                         E
what made us think that we were wise and we'd never compromise
for the life of me,  I cannot believe
     C#m             B  A
we'd ever die for these sins we were merely freshmen

my best friend took a week's vacation to forget her
his girl took a week's worth of valium and slept
and now he's guilt stricken sobbing with his head on the floor
thinks about her now and how he never really wept, he says...

Chorus + Bridge

we've tried to wash our hands of all of this
we never talk of our lacking relationships
and how we're guilt stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
we fell through the ice, when we tried not to slip, we'd say

Chorus + Bridge; Repeat chorus and fade
