More songs by this artist


This file is part of a collection that (moreso than the rest of the site) are not meant to be detailed or accurate transcriptions of the original recordings. They're just some simple chord charts that I made for my own use, some of them my own arrangements.

YOUR USUAL RESPONSE by Jill Phillips www.jillphillips.com
From her 2008 album The Good Things
Written by Jill Phillips

Capo 2

E2 E    E2 E     A6 A2    A6 A2

E                    .                      E
I don't know why you made me the way you did
       E                         .                 E
With a desire to connect then to sever the ties again
E                             .                        E
Looking through an eight-foot tinted glass perimeter fence
                 C#m7
	It seems the grass is always greener

E                   A2                   E  A2
I can't explain how weak my conviction is
          E                      A2                   E  A2
How I can make up my mind but it won't make a difference
     E                       A2                             E  A2
It's like I am allergic to solutions that would make any sense
           C#m              B4  A2  E
	Just a moth around a fire

		CHORUS
                                     C#m        A2      E
		But You're reaching out your arms of forgiveness
                          C#m         A2   E
		It's your usual response I'm afraid
                                  C#m              A2   E  A2  E  A2
		After all the things I've done you love me anyway

  E                       A2                    E   (A2)
I can't figure out how to make the distractions stop
        E                           A2               E  A2
So your whispers of truth won't get lost in the chaos
   E                             A2                         E  A2
My sense of self-importance is inflated and it's going to pop
           C#m         B4  A2  E
	Like a helium balloon

		REPEAT CHORUS

E  A2  E  A2
Hmm------
           C#m       B4  A2  E
	I keep running away

		REPEAT CHORUS

I don't know why you made me the way you did
With a desire to connect then to sever the ties again
Looking through an eight-foot tinted glass perimeter fence
	It seems the grass is always greener

I can't explain how weak my conviction is
How I can make up my mind but it won't make a difference
It's like I am allergic to solutions that would make any sense
	Just a moth around a fire

		It's your usual response I'm afraid
		After all the things I've done you love me anyway

I can't figure out how to make the distractions stop

My sense of self-importance is inflated and it's going to pop
	Like a helium balloon

		But You're reaching out your arms of forgiveness
		It's your usual response I'm afraid
		After all the things I've done you love me anyway

	I keep running away

		But You're reaching out your arms of forgiveness
		It's your usual response I'm afraid
		After all the things I've done you love me anyway
