I Wish I Was Chords
Capo 4

[Intro]

G G G


[Verse 1]

                G                 C
I wish I was a flame dancing in a candle
                  G                      C
Lighting up your living room high on the mantle
                   Am                  C        
I could bring some romance without any scandal
                G                       C           G
And then when you were done you'd just put me out

               G                     C
I wish I was a tune you sang in your kitchen
              G                 C       
Putting your groceries away and washing your dishes
        Am                                     C
I could float around your tongue and ease the tension
              G                        C            G
And then when you were done you'd just quiet down


[Chorus]

         C
But if I get too close
         G
Will the magic fade?
        Bm              Em 
Would I turn you off or away?
      C
If I pull you in
        G
Would I push you out
   Bm                      C                
Of something here you care about?
         Am              C
Well I'm at a loss for what to do
        D               
But I'm drawn to you


[Verse 2]

                G                          C
I wish I was a sweater wrapped around your hips
                    G                   C
And when it got too cold into me you'd slip
             Am                         C
And when the sun came back you would hang me up
            G               C           G
And I would watch you while you undress


[Chorus]

         C
But if I get too close
         G
Will the magic fade?
        Bm              Em 
Would I turn you off or away?
      C
If I pull you in
        G
Would I push you out
   Bm                      C                
Of something here you care about?
         Am              C
Well I'm at a loss for what to do
        D               D
But I'm drawn to you


[Interlude]

C G
C G 
C G 
C G
Am C


[Verse 3]

          G
I'm not a song
           C
I am not a sweater
           G
I'm not a fire
               C
I am something better
      Am                        C
I'm a man in love writing you a letter
         G
Will you take it
         C
Will you keep it
         Am
Will you read it
C
Believe it
  G
I love you
    C
I'm sorry.

About the artist behind I Wish I Was Chords:

The Avett Brothers are a folk-rock band that originated in Concord, North Carolina. The band is made up of two brothers, Seth Avett and Scott Avett who play the guitar and banjo, respectively, and Bob Crawford, who plays the stand-up bass. They are often joined on tour by cellist Joe Kwon. Risen from the ashes of Seth and Scott's former rock band Nemo, The Avett Brothers combine old-time country, punk, pop melodies, folk, rock and roll, honky tonk and ragtime to produce a sound described by the San Francisco Chronicle as having the "Heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones." The group themselves eschews labels, feeling that "none would do the music the justice. It's simply left up to each person to extract his or her own account from the Avett's music."

In the past year, The Avett Brothers have gone from relative unknowns to the poster children of a brand new and rapidly growing genre of American music. And while critics and fans alike have trouble agreeing on just what that genre should be called (indie roots, folk-punk, grungegrass, the list goes on and on), no one seems to have any trouble agreeing on the fact that The Avett Brothers are taking American roots music to brand new and exciting places.

Their live performances showcase their use of three-part harmony and southern rock feel, and are admired for being intense, energetic, and soulful.

The band are currently signed to Ramseur Records, based in Concord, NC. Other artists on the label include The Everybodyfields, Bombadil, Martin Stephenson and Samantha Crain & the Midnight Shivers.
