Me and Mia

by Ted Leo

As I was walking through a life one morning
The sun was out, the air was warm
But oh, I was cold
And though I must have looked a half a person
To tell the tale in my own version
It was only then that I felt whole

/ C - / D - / A F / :

Do you believe in something beautiful?
Then get up and be it!

/ G - Dm - / F - /

    {refrain}
    Fighting for the smallest goal to
    Get a little self control
    I know how hard you try, I see it in your eyes
    Call your friends because we've forgotten
    What it's like to eat what's rotten
    And what's eating you alive, might help you to survive

    / C - / Dm - / Am - Dm - / Am - / Dm - / Am - Dm - /

We went on, as we were on a mission
Latest in a grand tradition
Oh, what did we find?
It was Ego who was flying the banner
But Me and Mia, Ann and Ana
Oh, we'd been unkind

Do you believe in something beautiful?
Then, get up and be it!

    {refrain}

{bridge}
Even the nights they could get better
And even the days ain't all that bad
And after a week of fighting, as more and more it seems the right thing

/ F Em Dm Am / / /

Do you believe in something beautiful?
Then get up and be it!

    Fighting for the smallest goal to
    Get a little self control
    Won't anybody here, just let you disappear
    Now, doctors know your mom and dad
    But me and Mia, Ann and Ana
    Know how hard you try, don't you see it in my eyes?

    Sick to death of my dependence
    Fighting food to find transcendence
    Fighting to survive, more dead, but more alive
    Cigarettes and speed for living
    Sleeping pills to feel forgiven
    All that you can try, and all that you're deprived

    What a bourgeois social angel!
    Telling you you've got to change
    Don't have any idea, they'll never see so clear
    But don't forget what it really means to
    Hunger strike, when you don't really need to
    Some are dying for a cause, but that don't make it yours

{as bridge}
And even the nights they could get better...
