Metric

Gimme Sympathy

Verse 1

Get hot
Get too close to the flame
Wild open space
Talk like an open book
Sign me up
Got no time to take a picture
I'll remember someday
All the chances we took

Pre-Chorus

We're so close
To something better left unknown
We're so close
To something better left unknown

Chorus

I can feel it in my bones
Gimme sympathy
After all this is gone
Who would you rather be?
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Oh seriously
You're gonna make mistakes you're young
Come on baby play me something
Like "Here Comes The Sun"
Come on baby play me something
Like "Here Comes The Sun"

Verse 2

Don't go
Stay with the all unknown
Stay away from the hooks
All the chances we took

Pre-Chorus

We're so close
To something better left unknown
We're so close
To something better left unknown

Chorus

I can feel it in my bones
Gimme sympathy
After all this is gone
Who would you rather be?
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Oh seriously
You're gonna make mistakes you're young
Come on baby play me something
Like "Here Comes the Sun"

Chorus
(alt.)

Gimme sympathy
After all this is gone
Who would you rather be?
The Beatles or The Rolling Stones?
Oh seriously
You're gonna make mistakes you're young
Come on baby play me something
Like "Here Comes the Sun"
Come on baby play me something
Like "Here Comes the Sun"
Come on baby play me something
Like "Here Comes the Sun"
