Most Miserable Life

Chords and lyrics for Most Miserable Life by Polar Bear Club

D 
We fucked our  
D 
ears
G 
Screaming for the sake of what we love most
 
These  
D 
pretty scars aren’t going anyw
G 
here
 
The r
D 
edder, the better
G 
Lose your voice and make it hurt
 
Rel
D 
uctance, and reserve, refuse these things
G 
 
‘Cause it’s time to sin
G 
g! 
 
Woah!
 
D 
Woah…
 
Here we go
G 
!
 
D 
I pray and bleed with a frozen smile
G 
Echoes of heartache are not with me
D 
Emotions shed in different times
G 
Crashed at this opportunity
 
D 
I feel sorry for these walls
G 
‘Cause if they could talk they surely would
D 
Hear ‘em out, tear ‘em down.
G 
Hear ‘em out, tear ‘em down.
 
D 
What stops us from  
G 
doing that which we love?
D 
Social convention can  
G 
take 
 
off
D 
Fired hearts, and a  
G 
little 
 
faith…
G 
We are, We are,  
G 
We are the fired hearts!

Hollow Place

Chords and lyrics for Hollow Place by Polar Bear Club

Bm 
I’ve been driving with the rear view mirror.
A 
Who guessed it would be no clearer?
G 
It got me lost, and now I’m late.
A 
The clock’s dead on, no one to blame (But  
Bm 
me!)
 
Is this a bad chase dream where
A 
speed’s not what it seems?
G 
The pedal’s pressed, but nothing works.
A 
Bite your nails ’til your fingers hurt!

D 
Don’t try and sound  
G 
right, just  
D 
hope your  
G 
honest
 
Trust you’ll end up some
D 
where
 
That  
G 
girl that made you  
D 
promise
 
she says “
G 
try not to care”
 
I don’t  
Em 
know if I’m good, and
G 
everyone knows it
 
You  
D 
ever feel you were meant to be  
G 
alone?
 
Cos  
Em 
I saw a play and and a
G 
character said that he was
D 
destined to never feel at  
G 
home
 
D 
Don’t 
 
 
G 
go 
 
to
D 
night, I’m looking for  
G 
salt in a snow globe
D 
Cos what I  
G 
had is slipping  
D 
fast.
 
Dr.  
G 
Howe, Please call back
Unmatched square brackets: [I'm not [Em]sleeping in, I don’t care

 
I’m singing  
G 
loud but no one hears
Unmatched square brackets: I’ll [D]wake up tomorrow and [G]still feel wrong] X2

it.
 
To

Em 
I guess I’m an artist who’s confines brought him luck
G 
choked by second guessing
G 
I know that’s not enough
