Firework 

 

[Verse]
G                Am
Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, 
Em
drifting through the wind 
C
wanting to start again? 
G                Am
Do you ever feel, feel so paper thin 
Em
like a house of cards,
C
one blow from caving in? 
G                Am
Do you ever feel already buried deep? 
Em                        C
6 feet under screams but no one seems to hear a thing 
G                        Am
Do you know that there's still a chance for you 
Em
'Cause there's a spark in you 
C
You just gotta

Firework 

 

[Pre-Chorus]
  G          Am         Em     C
Ignite, the light, and let it shine 
     G       Am             Em        C
Just own the night like the 4th of July 
 
[Chorus]
                      G    Am
'Cause baby you're a firework
                   Em           C
Come on, show 'em what you're worth 
             G          Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em    C
As you shoot across the sky-y-y 
               G    Am
Baby, you're a firework 
                   Em     C
Come on, let your colors burst 
             G          Am
Make 'em go "Oh, oh, oh" 
                        Em              C
You're gonna leave 'em all in awe, awe, awe

[Verse 2]
G                     Am
You don't have to feel like a waste of space 
Em             C
You're original, cannot be replaced 
G               Am
If you only knew what the future holds 
Em                      C
After a hurricane comes a rainbow 
 
G                     Am
Maybe your reason why all the doors are closed 
Em                       C
So you could open one that leads you to the perfect road 
G                     Am
Like a lightning bolt, your heart will blow 
Em
And when it's time, you'll know 
C
You just gotta

Im a believer 

[Verse 1]
G                       D       G
I thought love was only true in fairy tales
G                 D                G
Meant for someone else but not for me.
C               G
Love was out to get me
C                 G
That's the way it seemed.
C              G              D      N.C.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.
 

Im a believer 

 
[Chorus]
               G     
Then I saw her face,
    C              G
now I'm a believer
     G        G
Not a trace
   C           G      G
of doubt in my mind.
      G    N.C.     C
I'm in love, (ooooh, ah yeah)
        G                  F              D
I'm a believer! I couldn't leave her if I tried.

Monster Mash!

[Verse 1]
G
I was working in the lab late one night,
        Em
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight.
       C
For my monster from his slab began to rise,
    D
And suddenly to my surprise.
 
[Chorus]
           G
He did the mash, he did the monster mash.
            Em
The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash.
           C
He did the mash, it caught on in a flash.
           D
He did the mash, he did the monster mash.
 
[Verse 2]
        G
From my laboratory in the castle east,
       Em
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast. 
    C
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes, 
   D
To catch a jolt from my electrodes.

     Brainstorm; take me away from the norm    I've got to tell you something
C Am Em             C Am                     Em
     This phenomenon,   I had to put it in a song and it goes like

C5 Am Em
Whoa, Amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, Shades of gold display naturally

F                            G
You want to know what brings me here, oh
F                                 G  Em             C
Glide through my head like to fear,     and I know why

C5 Am Em
Whoa, Amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, Shades of gold display naturally

C5 Am Em
Whoa, Amber is the color of your energy
Whoa, Shades of gold display naturally

Bridge:

Am            Em
You live too far away
Am                      Em      G    F
Your voice rings like a bell anyway
                    Em                            F
Don't give up your independence, 'cuz it feels so right
                     Em    G                           C5
Nothing good comes easily, sometimes you've got to fight


  Am  Em
Whoa, Amber is the color of your energy
C5 Am Em
Whoa, Shades of gold display naturally

F                           G                  F
You launch a thousand ships in my heart, so easy
F                    G             Em
Still it's fine from afar, and you know that

C5 Am   G
Whoa, Brainstorm take me away from the norm
C5 Am  G                             C5
Whoa, I've got to tell you something
