Track Name: HOW IT GOES
HOW IT GOES
72, key of D, drop D
| Galt Asus | Bsus G |
1
the first impression that I ever got
was that I’d never get what I want what I got was not a lot
I never really wanted anything
other than you to sing lullabies when I slide back to sleep
anybody wanna tell me what went down
anybody wanna explain things
why did everybody do on each other
like they don’t wanna be done themselves
the next thing that I remember
waking up next to someone I love
don’t really even know her
but it feels like that I always have
nobody gonna take her from me
nobody gonna make her laugh like I do when I whisper words into her ears
Chorus
| D E- | D/F# G | 2x
she knows___ how it goes__
2
how I wish that someone had showed me
how to deal with days just like these
how the pain can crush your soul
and make you old in just a few days
always wanna be just like him
never raise my voice in anger
always fight it with a grin
carry myself with poise and grace
only thing I want you to
never forget where your love can come from
anytime you wanna make a rhyme, make it fine,
show a sign, throw a line, save a soul, give a dime
er’body can’t help but feel it
everybody gonna want and need it
when you whisper into their ears
they know
how it goes
3
that night that I remember
she was good she was my savior
came into my room in the middle of the night
kicked off her shoes and she made it right
nobody can sing like that
nobody can make that sound
not another care in the world
not another soul to be found
the last impression that I ever had was
that I wasn’t sad, wasn’t glad, wasn’t good, wasn’t bad
never once did the devil kill
on my will to stay still and be chill
climbin’ up and down this hill
everybody gotta get it together
start lovin’ more on each other
start whispering into each other’s ears
‘cause then you’ll know
how it goes
you’ll know
that’s how it goes
Track Name: NICER
NICER
118, drop D
| D- F | C F G|
1
ever be walkin' through a forest and you don't know where you're going
and you wish you had accepted that compass from them
but maybe it wouldn't matter you keep drifting to the right
end up even more lost and sleeping out through the night
CHORUS
| D- F | C G F|
don't you wish you had been nicer
don't you wish that you got what you wanted
don't you wish you could be nicer
then maybe you will get what you want
2
ever be walking out in a city and you don't know a fucking soul
can't seem to find your balls to ask which way to go
but there will come a point in time when you'll have to ask someone
sacrifice you pride maybe save your soul
CHORUS
BRIDGE
| A | A | G | G | 3x
And everything comes clear, which way you should be going
when everybody gets near, to where they'll be going
and I don't wanna die here, never to be knowing
| A | A | D- F | C G F|
if I made myself clear before it's too late

3
ever be walking out in a jungle and feel no fear
even though death is all around you and oh so near
some people want what you got but you can't give it to them
never let their bad vibe get through your skin
CHORUS

gonna tip toe into your room
and move without making a sound
I'm gonna sing you a tune
so soft it don't make a sound
gonna crawl to next to you
feel the warmth from our bodies
gonna try fall asleep
don't know 'cause my mind is racing now
CHORUS
everytime I tip toe into your room
everytime I come home a little too soon
everytime I come in the middle of the nigh
I'm gonna make it right for you
don't nobody tell you nothin’
ain't nobody say it like I do
everytime I tip toe into your room
I'm gonna sing a tune
2
when you open your eyes
I'll be fast asleep
way after you rise
I'll be game for some good hide and seek
but you look up at me
lean over turn the lights on
thought you was foolin' me
pretending to be asleep
CHORUS
(last line) I’m gonna sing a song for you_
