Alec Benjamin – If We Have Each Other Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Alec Benjamin
Song : If We Have Each Other

[Verse 1] : 
       Am
She was 19 with a baby on the way
        G
On the East-side of the city, she was working every day
          Em
Cleaning dishes in the evening, she could barely stay awake
         F                                                    G
She was clinging to the feeling that her luck was gonna change
     Am                                               G
And, 'cross town she would take the bus at night to a one bedroom apartment

And when she'd turn on the light
           Em
She would sit down at the table

Tell herself that it's alright
         F                                              G
She was waiting on the day she hoped her baby would arrive
     Am              G
She'd never be alone
                     Em
Have someone to hold

And when nights were cold
F
She'd say

[Chorus] : 
               Am
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
           G
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Em
I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
           F
You should know I'll be there for you
           G         Am
When the world's not perfect

When the world's not kind
            G
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
                Em
I will be your mother, and I'll hold your hand
           F                            G
You should know I'll be there for you

[Verse 2] : 
         Am                                        G
They were 90 and were living out their days on the West-side of the city next to where they got engaged
         Em
They had pictures on the walls of all the memories that they'd made
           F                                                    G
And though life was never easy, they were thankful that they stayed
Am
With each other, and though some times were hard
     G
Even when she made him angry he would never break her heart
         Em
No, they didn't have the money to afford a fancy car
          F                                            G
But they never had to travel 'cause they'd never be apart
Am              G                            Em
Even at the end, their love was stronger than the day that they first met
 F
They say

[Chorus] : 
               Am
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
           G
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Em
I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
           F
You should know I'll be there for you
           G         Am
When the world's not perfect

When the world's not kind
            G
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
                Em
I will be your lover, and I'll hold your hand
           F
You should know I'll be there for you

[Bridge] : 
Am   G    Em
Oh  Ooh OOoh
           F                          G
You should know I'll be there for you

[Verse 3] : 
   Am
I'm 23, and my folks are getting old
       G
I know they don't have forever and I'm scared to be alone
       Em
So I'm thankful for my sister, even though sometimes we fight
     F                                                G
When high school wasn't easy, she's the reason I survived
  Am
I know she'd never leave me

And I hate to see her cry
      G
So I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
  Em
I wrote this verse to tell her that I'm always by her side
  F
I wrote this verse to tell her that

[Chorus] : 
                Am
The world's not perfect, but it's not that bad
          G
If we got each other, and that's all we have
               Em
I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
          F
You should know I'll be there for you
       G             Am
When the world's not perfect

When the world's not kind
           G
If we have each other then we'll both be fine
               Em
I will be your brother, and I'll hold your hand
           F                         G
You should know I'll be there for you

[Outro] : 
Am  G   Em
Oh Ooh Oooh
           F                         G  Am
You should know I'll be there for you

Alec Benjamin – Pretending Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Alec Benjamin
Song : Pretending

[Verse 1] : 
               F                        C
In this masquerade, she can't feel the pain
               Am                    G
Cover up her heart, with a little paint
                         F                     C
While he's pulling out a flask, to hide it all away
                         G
There's nothing left to say
Am
He knows that they're drowning
F                C                      Am
She hopes that there's still something left
                       G
Let go now cause he's leaving

[Chorus] : 
                       F
But she'd be fine pretending
                C                    Am             G
Things were alright, even while its ending keep it inside
                  F
She can feel them bending
                  C                      Am
All their love is pending so what is she defending?
G             F                    C
Even when she says she'll open her eyes
                  Am             G
All her words are empty when she denies
                      F
But she can feel them bending
                  C                      Am
All their love is pending so what is she defending?
G                       F     C     Am     G
But she'd be fine prete eh eh eh eh eh eh (she'd be fine)

[Verse 2] : 
              F                         C
Step into the light, to look him in the eye
           Am                         G
Feeling so exposed, she tries to stay composed
                 F                       C           Am          G
But every little fight, and every little lie is impossible to hide

[Bridge] : 
F                      C
He knows that there're drowning
Am              G                       F
She hopes that there's still something left
       C              Am
Let go now cause he's leaving
                  F                      C
But she'd be fine pretending things were alright
               Am             G
Even while its ending keep it inside
                   F
She can feel them bending
                  C                      Am
All their love is pending so what is she defending?
G             F                    C                       Am               G
Even when she says she'll open her eyes, all her words are empty when she denies

[Chorus] : 
                      F
But she can feel them bending
                  C                       Am
All their love is pending so what is she defending?
G                       F     G     Am   C
But she'd be fine prete eh eh eh eh eh (she'd be fine)
F                           C
I hate to watch her hurt, I know it isn't right
Am                               G
But she can find the courage to leave it all behind
F                           C
I wish I had I the words to help her realize
Am                          G
That there is just no way to bring this back to life

[Bridge] : 
F                      C         Am
He knows that, they're drowning
                  F                      C
But she'd be fine pretending things were alright
               Am               G
Even while its ending keep it inside
                  F
She can feel them bending
                  C                       Am
All their love is pending, so what is she defending?
G             F                    C
Even when she says she'll open her eyes
                  Am             G
All the words are empty when she denies
                      F                         C
But she can feel them bending all their love is pending so what is
    Am
She defending
G                       F C Am G
But she'd be fine prete eh eh eh eh

You've got that flesh between your teeth, got the dirt beneath your nails

So when you have a minute, you can take the out to gnaw
            A                              Gb                   Abm
Upon the pieces that remain and when theres no blood left to draw
         A                              Gbm                 Ab
Pour my soul into a glass so you can drink it through a straw

Alec Benjamin – The Water Fountain Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Alec Benjamin
Song : The Water Fountain

[Verse] :
    Am
She told me that she loved me by the water fountain
    F
She told me that she loved me and she didn't love him
    C
And that was really lovely cause it was innocent
    G
But now she's got a cup with something else in it
     Am
It's getting kind of blurry at a quarter past ten
    F
And he was in a hurry to be touching her skin
      C
She's feeling kind of dirty when she's dancing with him
   G
Forgetting what she told me by the water fountain

[Pre Chorus] :
         Am
Now he's grabbing her hips and pulling her in
F
Kissing her lips and whispering in her
C
Ear and she knows that she shouldn't listen
    G
And that she should be with me by the water fountain

[Chorus] :
    Am
She couldn't be at home in the nighttime because
  F
It made her feel alone but at that time she was
    C
Too young
          G
I was too young
  Am
I should have built a room with a fountain for us
    F
The moment that she told me that she was in love
    C
Too young
          G
I was too young
    Am
Too young
    F
Too young
    C
Too young
G
YOLO

[Verse] :
    Am
And if she ever goes back to the water fountain
    F
The handle will be broken and the rust set in
       C
But my hand it will be open and I'll try to fix it
   G
My heart it will be open and I'll try to give it

[Pre Chorus] :
         Am
Now he's grabbing her hips and pulling her in
F
Kissing her lips and whispering in her
C
Ear and she knows that she shouldn't listen
    G
And that she should be with me by the water fountain

[Chorus] :
    Am
She couldn't be at home in the nighttime because
  F
It made her feel alone but at that time she was
    C
Too young
          G
I was too young
  Am
I should have built a room with a fountain for us
    F
The moment that she told me that she was in love
    C
Too young
          G
I was too young
    Am
Too young
    F
Too young
    C
Too young
G
YOLO
    Am
She couldn't be at home in the nighttime because
  F
It made her feel alone but at that time she was
    C
Too young
          G
I was too young
  Am
I should have built a room with a fountain for us
    F
The moment that she told me that she was in love
    C
Too young
          G
I was too young
    Am
Too young
    F
Too young
    C
Too young
G
YOLO
  Am
I should have built a room with a fountain for us

Too young

A                                                      F#m
I built a friend with three pieces of plastic and a pen,
                                  D 
I made him on the table in the den,
                                      A
I gave him my old cellphone for a head,
          E
For a head.
       A
And we spent holidays in my house, 
        F#m
And we left presents in the stocking,
          D                                               A
And we bought bolts and things and strings and a new watch,
                  E
That's what he got.

[Chorus] :
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We knew we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.

[Verse 2] :
        A
Then I left for college in September
        F#m
And we wept cause we can't be together
      D                                      A
So I kept pictures to remember my old friend,
          E
My old friend.
        A
Then I met this girl at graduation
        F#m 
And forget my oldest creation
       D
And I guess I'll see him next vacation
        A               E
Send my best, I send my best

[Chorus] :
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We knew we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.

[Verse 3] :
          A                                  F#m
I came home to find him on the table with a note
                                 D
Scribbled out in pencil and he wrote
                                  A
That he just wasn't stable all alone,
       E
All alone.
          A                                       F#m
Next to him, an empty glass of water that he spilled
                          D
All over the body that I built,
                                      A
It fizzled and it popped and then it killed,
               E
And then it killed.

[Chorus] :
D
And we had so much fun together,
A               E
We knew we'd be friends forever.
D
And we had so much fun together,
A                 E
we had so much fun.
           A
I built a friend.
