American Life

Year: 2003 - Album: American Life

	  		(no chords)
Do I have to change my name? 
Will it get me far? 
Should I lose some weight? 
Am I gonna be a star?
 
Intro: F#m
 
F#m
I tried to be a boy, 
I tried to be a girl 
I tried to be a mess, 
                   C#
I tried to be the best
I guess I did it wrong, 
                         Bm
That's why I wrote this song 
             F#m
This type of modern life - Is it for me?
This type of modern life - Is it for free?
So, I went into a bar looking for sympathy 
                                       C#
A little company - I tried to find a friend 
                                            Bm
It's more easily say, it's always been the same 
              F#m
This type of modern life is not for me? 
This type of modern life is not for free? 
 
F#m      C#m            F#m 
American life (american life)
                     C#m
I live the american dream (american dream)
    Bm                      C#m 
You are the best thing I've seen,
    Bm              C#m            F#m
You are not just a dream (american life)
 
F#m
I tried to stay ahead,
I tried to stay on top 
I tried to play the part,
                  C#  
But somehow I forgot
Just what I did it for 
                  Bm
And why I wanted more
              F#m 
This type of modern life - Is it for me?
This type of modern life - Is it for free?
 
F#m
Do I have to change my name? 
Will it get me far? 
Should I lose some weight? 
Am I gonna be a star? 
 
F#m      C#m            F#m 
American life (american life)
                     C#m
I live the american dream (american dream)
    Bm                      C#m 
You are the best thing I've seen,
    Bm              C#m            Bm    C#m Bm C#m
You are not just a dream (american life)
         F#m
American life
 
F#m
I tried to be a boy
I tried to be a girl 
I tried to be a mess
I tried to be the best 
I tried to find a friend
I tried to stay ahead 
I tried to stay on top
Fuck it... 

F#m
Do I have to change my name? 
Will it get me far? 
Should I lose some weight? 
Am I gonna be a star?

Ah, fuck it... 
Ah, fuck it... 
Ah, fuck it... 
Ah, fuck it...

    F#m 
I'm drinking a Soy latte 
I get a double shot 
It goes right through my body 
And you know 
I'm satisfied,

  F#m
I drive my mini cooper 
And I'm feeling super-dooper 
Yo they tell I'm a trooper 
And you know I'm satisfied 

     F#m
I do yoga and pilates 
And the room is full of hotties 
So I'm checking out the bodies 
And you know I'm satisfied 

    F#m
I'm digging on the isotopes 
This metaphysic's shit is dope 
And if all this can give me hope 
You know I'm satisfied 

        F#m
I got a lawyer and a manager 
An agent and a chef 
Three nannies, an assistant 
And a driver and a jet 
A trainer and a butler 
And a bodyguard or five 
A gardener and a stylist 
Do you think I'm satisfied?

    F#m
I'd like to express my extreme point of view 
I'm not Christian and I'm not a Jew
I'm just living out the American dream 
And I just realized that nothing is what it seems 

F#m
Do I have to change my name?
Am I gonna be a star?
Do I have to change my name?
Am I gonna be a star? 
Do I have to change my name?

F#m
