Words & Music:



There's a full transcription and lesson on how to play this song in the Holiday 2004 issue of Guitar One. There is also a full transcription of this in the November 2008 issue of Guitar World.


G  B  C  Cm


                     G                              B

When you were here before, couldn't look you in the eyes.

                 C                         Cm

You look like an angel; your skin makes me cry.


                 G                      B

You float like a feather in a beautiful weather.

             C                          Cm

I wish I was special; you're so fucking special...



          G            B

But I'm a creep, I'm a weirdo.

                         C                     Cm

What the hell am I doin' here?  I don't belong here.


I don't care if it hurts, I wanna have control.

I wanna perfect body, I want a perfect soul.

I want you to notice when I'm not around.

You're so fuckin' special.  I wish I was special...




Whatever makes you happy; whatever you want.

You're so fucking special; I wish I was special...
