Claires Ninth chords by Ben Folds

Guitar chords with lyrics

D
So, she stands and waits, and waits at the school gate.
     C#dim
They're late. They come, so dumb, in two cars when they agreed one,
C
  And it's gone wrong, on her birthday.
D
So, they go to Joe's for pizza and ice cream.
   C#dim
They sit and stare, and Claire just wants to be nine-and-a-half.
G6
 Next year, she'll tell them she only wants world peace.

  C
But Claire, Claire baby,
 Cmaj7
I wish you knew how this all got twisted.
 Cmaj7
I wish you could see right inside us.
D
Some of the stuff, the best of us, that we can't get out.

D
What's the point of this? What's wrong with two birthdays?
   C
It's cool. At school, her friends, they all have two birthdays.
  C
Aw jeez. He just asked the waitress out on a date on her birthday.

  C
But Claire, Claire baby,
 Cmaj7
I wish you knew how this all got twisted.
 Cmaj7
I wish you could see right inside us.
D
Some of the stuff, the best of us, that we can't get to.

INTERLUDE
D (x2)
G (x2)

G6
Here's the check. They pay, with two cards like they've never met.
       C
Goodbyes outside. It's cold in L.A.

C
Claire, Claire baby,
 Cmaj7
I wish you knew how this all got twisted.
 Cmaj7
I wish you could see right inside us.
Cmaj7
Some of the stuff, the most of us,
    Cmaj7
You're what we were. We're all that's left.
  Cmaj7
