TWENTY ONE PILOTS - Stressed Out

This song is from the album Blurryface(2015), released on 15 May 2015.
What I liked about this song is the amount of energy and the power that was there in his voice. The production felt amazing, even if the rhythm felt a bit dry. The guitars and the pianos in the background added a much needed flavor to the song.

[INTRO] F Dm Am
[VERSE]
  F                         Dm
I wish I found some better sounds no one's ever heard,
Am
I wish I had a better voice that sang some better words,
F                           Dm
I wish I found some chords in an order that is new,
Am
I wish I didn't have to rhyme every time I sang,

F                      Dm
I was told when I get older all my fears would shrink,
    Am
But now I'm insecure and I care what people think.

[PRE-CHORUS]
              F            Dm                Am
My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.
              F            Dm                 Am
My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.

[CHORUS]
F              C          Am         Em
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
 Am         G        C              E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.
Am             G             C         E
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
Am         G        C                 E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.

[INSTRUMENTAL] F Dm Am

We're stressed out.

[INSTRUMENTAL] F Dm Am

[VERSE]
Am                              G
Sometimes a certain smell will take me back to when I was young,
Dm                         C
How come I'm never able to identify where it's coming from,
Am                        G
I'd make a candle out of it if I ever found it,
                   Dm                        C
Try to sell it, never sell out of it, I'd probably only sell one,


Am                           G
It'd be to my brother, 'cause we have the same nose,
      Dm                           C
Same clothes homegrown a stone's throw from a creek we used to roam,
F                              Dm
But it would remind us of when nothing really mattered,
        Am
Out of student loans and treehouse homes we all would take the latter.

[PRE-CHORUS]
              F            Dm                Am
My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.
              F            Dm                 Am
My name's 'Blurryface' and I care what you think.

[CHORUS]
F              C          Am         Em
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
 Am         G        C              E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.
Am             G             C         E
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
Am         G        C                 E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.

[BRIDGE x2]
Am                              G
We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
          C                                 E
We would build a rocket ship and then we'd fly it far away,
          Am                                  G
Used to dream of outer space but now they're laughing at our face,
           C                         F
Saying, "Wake up, you need to make money."
F
Yo.

[CHORUS]
F              C          Am         Em
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
 Am         G        C              E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.
Am             G             C         E
Wish we could turn back time, to the good ol' days,
Am         G        C                 E
When our momma sang us to sleep but now we're stressed out.

[OUTRO]
F                       Dm
Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, bunny
Am
We used to play pretend, wake up, you need the money
F                               Dm
Used to play pretend, used to play pretend, bunny
Am
We used to play pretend, wake up, you need the money
F                               Dm
We used to play pretend, give each other different names,
            Am
We would build a rocket ship and then we'd fly it far away,
           F                                  Dm
Used to dream of outer space but now they're laughing at our face,
           Am
Saying, "Wake up, you need to make money."

Yo.
