You Gotta Learn to Live with What You Are Ben Folds I'm not sure what this song is from, but my friend really likes this song. It's all orchestra and everything when he does it, but if you pick the chords for the first verse, and start strumming at the pre-chorus (And now that the gig is up...), it doesn't sound all that bad! My voice is lower then Ben Folds though, so I did change the key lower. I believe he plays it in E? Of course, you could simplify all the base notes in the song to the root chord or whatever it's called, but it sounds nicer if you can hit it all! Verse: G Bm C I know that you’re in there G Bm C I can see you G Bm C You’re saying you’re okay G Bm C I don’t believe you C D G G/F# G/B D C And now that the gig is up, the spell is broken D G G/F# G/B D C The fat lady’s sung, the president has spoken D G G/F# G/B D C These days that you were waiting for will come and go D Like any day, just another day Chorus: G D /F# Bm C There’s never gonna be a moment of truth for you G D /F# Bm C While the world is watching, ohh ohh C D G G/F# G/B D C Ohh, All you need is the thing you’ve forgotten C D C G D G And that’s to learn to live with what you are.
