Bm                     A
  Caterpillar crawling up the big phone pole

E                                    G
  Is there somebody that you want to talk to

D                          CG
  You know that pretty soon, you'll be able to fly

G
  How is this going to affect you

                      D
Do you think it might wreck you

                   A*
Your friends might reject you

                        DC
You say you took it too far

       G
Said you want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be...

DG D G

B                              A
  Put down glossy pictures and drugs I've never seen

E                                    G
  We'll treat you with advice from a fashion magazine

D                               CG
  And one day she just walked into that magazine

G
  I wonder if she'll ever come back

                  D
They all said she would crack

                       A*
They said her mind was one-track

                          DC
They said she took it too far

         G
Said you want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be...

DG D G
DG D (... solo ...)

Bm                         A
  Every time you move your lips

E                             G
  Well, let me give you a few tips

D                        CG
  Yesterday you were too young

G
  Tomorrow you will be too old

To regret all the things you've done

                  D
Who you trying to hustle

                           A*
Somebody want to show your muscle

            DC                     G
Second hand excuses never went too far

                         D
What's this scene you're making

                     A*
Your ideas have been taken

                    DC
We'll seek when you awaken

                   G
Alone in someone's car

                     D
You just stood there shaking

                A*
You stood there shaking

                   DC
They said you were faking

         G
Said you want to be, want to be, want to be, want to be

DG D G

DG     D      Bm
Closer to the stars.
