Words and Music by DOUG HOPKINS

INTRO:
    [Drums - 4 bars]
    G - (4 bars)

VERSE 1:
    (G)
    Fireworks from the rooftop fall
    C                      G
    Down around this whole town
                      D Dsus4 - Dsus2
    And it seems like so long
    Dsus4 - D          G
    Since I've had you beside me here

(G)
    We used to walk together
    C                       G
    I've nothing to show me now
                      D Dsus4 - Dsus2
    And it seems like so long
    Dsus4 - D          G
    Since I've had you beside me here

CHORUS:
         C                 D
    Well he's go ropes and chains
    G              Em
    All around her heart
        C             D                       G
    And nothing I can say will ever tear them apart

VERSE 2:
    (G)
    Well her mumbled come now softly (?)
             C                  G
    From the other side of this room
                        D Dsus4 - Dsus2
    Everything that she won't say
    Dsus4 - D       G
    Just reminds me she's not alone

(G)
    Well I can't help but feeling
      C                G
    A little more than blue
                        D Dsus4 - Dsus2
    Cause the things that matter
    Dsus4 - D       G
    Just don't mean a damn to you

CHORUS:
         C                 D
    Well he's go ropes and chains
    G              Em
    All around her heart
        C             D                       G
    And nothing I can say will ever tear them apart

About the artist behind Fireworks:

The Gin Blossoms are an alternative rock band formed in 1987, in Tempe, Arizona. They took their name from a photo of W.C. Fields which bore the caption "W.C. Fields with gin blossoms," referring to the actor's gin-ravaged nose. The band, who were musically weaned on The Byrds and Tom Petty, released three albums and had several hits in the mid 1990s, before breaking up in 1997. Five years later in 2002, the band reunited, released a DVD, resumed touring, and promised a fourth album. Major Lodge Victory, the Gin Blossoms' first album in ten years, was released on August 8, 2006 on the Hybrid Recordings label.
