Lyrics and Chords of I Just Want to Sell Out My Funeral

Artist:The Wonder Years




Clear the apartment
I plan on collapsing and I
Could have sworn I heard a car door slam

I'm stuck at the corner
Of grinding teeth and stomach acid
All alone under the soft rain and a street lamp

Well I spent my life
Weighed down by a stone heart
Drowning in irony
And settling for anything

Somewhere down the line
All the wiring went faulty
I'm scared shitless of failure
And I'm staring out at where I wanna be

I just wanna sell out my funeral
I just wanna be enough for everyone
I just wanna sell out my funeral
Know I fought until the lights were gone

I'm walking through harbors and churchyards
I felt the snow crack under my feet
And I'll stay thankful for mild winters
For every shot I got at anything

I'll blame the way that I was brought up
Or the flaws that I was born with
Or the mistakes that I've made
They're all just fucking excuses

So bury me in the memories
Of my friends and family
I just need to know
That they were proud of me

I just wanna sell out my funeral
I just wanna be enough for everyone
I just wanna sell out my funeral
Know I fought until the lights were gone

And oh, they all wanna know
Where'd the American dream go?
Did you give up and go home?
Am I here alone?

And oh, as the credits roll
I'll watch as the screen glows
The moments when I choked
All the fears that I've outgrown

At least I'd hope so

I was just happy to be a contender
And I was just aching for anything
Well I used to have such steady hands
But now I can't keep 'em from shaking

Oh, I'm sorry, I
I'm sorry I don't laugh at the right times
Is this what it feels like
With my wings clipped?
I'm awkward and nervous
I'm awkward and nervous

I'm awkward and nervous
I'm awkward and nervous

But I was kind of hoping you'd stay
I was kind of hoping you'd stay
I was kind of hoping you'd stay
I need you to stay
Oh god, could you stay?
I need you to stay
Need you to stay
I need you

If I'm in an airport
And you're in a hospital bed
Well then, what kind of man does that make me?
If I'm in an airport
And you're in a hospital bed
Well then, what kind of man does that make me?

If I'm in an airport
If I'm in an airport
What kind of man does that make me?
What kind of man does that make me?

What kind of man does that make me?

I know how it feels to be
At war with a world that never loved me
When all we had were hand-me-downs
(I know how it feels to be)
(At war with a world that never loved me)
When all we had were hand-me-downs
(I know how it feels to be)
(At war with a world that never loved me)
All we had was good will
(I know how it feels to be)
(At war with a world that never loved me)

Two blackbirds on a highway sign
Are laughing at me here, with my wings clipped
I'm staring up at the sky
But the bombs keep fucking falling

There's no devil on my shoulder
He's got a rocking chair on my front porch
But I won't let him in
No, I won't let him in

'Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts
And I know how it's all gonna end
There's no triumph waiting
There's no sunset to ride off in

We all wanna be great men
And there's nothing romantic about it
I just want to know that I did all I could
With what I was given
