Hank Green - A Song About An Anglerfish Chords

          D#0         G#1      A#2            D#3
0 Yes it's true that I once went through life
      D#4              G#5            A#6         D#7
1 As a guy who always had to rhyme life with strife
                G#8                    A#9
2 Yes, I've been burned and I've been spurned
                D#10                Cm11
3 And through it all, yes, I have learned
              G#12                 G#13
4 That love is not about whether you get stabbed
         G#14                    A#15
5 But how slow the knife gets turned
6
7
        G#16                     G#17
8 But my friends I've found an animal
     G#18                 G#19
9 Who doesn't feel this pain
        G#20               G#21
10 And my life is so much better
          G#22              A#23
11 Now that I can feel the same
12
13
             D#24              G#25
14 Because you can't hate the night
           A#26
15 If you've lived your whole life without light
         D#27              G#28
16 And you can't hate the dish
           A#29
17 If you've only ever eaten fish
         D#30          G#31
18 And you can't feel alone
         A#32               D#33
19 If it's all you've ever known
20
21
          G#34              G#35
22 Yeah the deep sea anglerfish
        G#36            G#37
23 Has no reason to be happy
        A#38               D#39
24 But it has no frikkin' idea
 G#40            D#41
25 What else to be
26
27
 D#42                     G#43
28 The deep sea dwelling anglerfish
       A#44             D#45
29 Never has to find a mate
          D#46            G#47
30 They are always there together
           A#48             G#49
31 When it's time to procreate
32
33
     G#50                 A#51
34 See one dark night, a young male
           D#52             Cm53
35 Bites the female on her side
          G#54           G#55
36 And then slowly he becomes
            G#56          A#57
37 a sperm-producing parasite
38
39
        G#58             G#59
40 And if we can say he lives at all
    G#60               G#61
41 He lives until she dies
       G#62               G#63
42 And until that day he literally
 G#64                A#65
43 Never leaves her side
44
45
             D#66              G#67
46 Yeah you can't hate the night
           A#68
47 If you've lived your whole life without light
         D#69              G#70
48 And you can't hate the dish
           A#71
49 If you've only ever eaten fish
         D#72          G#73
50 And you can't feel alone
         A#74               D#75
51 If it's all you've ever known
52
53
          G#76              G#77
54 Yeah the deep sea anglerfish
        G#78            G#79
55 Has no reason to be happy
        A#80               D#81
56 But it has no frikkin' idea
 G#82            D#83
57 What else to be
58
59
     D#84                   G#85
60 For years this rule has kept me
        A#86        D#87
61 Out of hopeless despair
     D#88             G#89
62 You simply do not feel
         A#90      D#91
63 What is always there
64
65
   G#92               A#93
66 I ask my brain to entertain
      D#94           Cm95
67 That pain is the same
           G#96               G#97
68 That if I feel it all the time
         G#98              A#99
69 Can you really call it pain
70
71
   G#100              G#101
72 I don't have any friends
       G#102              G#103
73 And I don't have any hair
     G#104                G#105
74 But neither does the anglerfish
     G#106           A#107
75 And she doesn't care
76
77
             D#108              G#109
78 Because you can't hate the night
           A#110
79 If you've lived your whole life without light
         D#111              G#112
80 And you can't hate the dish
           A#113
81 If you've only ever eaten fish
         D#114          G#115
82 And you can't feel alone
         A#116               D#117
83 If it's all you've ever known
84
85
          G#118              G#119
86 Yeah the deep sea anglerfish
        G#120            G#121
87 Has no reason to be happy
        A#122               D#123
88 But she has no frikkin' idea
 G#124            D#125
89 What else to be
90
