(Fm) (Bb)
Girl, you thought you found the answer on that magic carpet ride last

(Fm) (Bb)
But when you wake up in the mornin' the world still gets you
(Fm) (Bb)
uptight

Well, here's nothin' that you ain't tried
Fm /E /Eb /D
To fill the emptiness inside
Db
But when you come back down, girl
C
Still ain't feelin' right

Chorus:

[1,2,4: And don't it seem like]
Ab Db
Kicks just keep gettin' harder to find
[3, 4: Oh, you don't need kicks, girl]
Ab Db
And all your kicks ain't bringin' you peace of mind
[3, 4: You just need help, girl]
Ab
Before you find out it's too late, girl
C
You better get straight

No, but not with kicks
(Fm) (Bb)
You just need help, girl

Verse 2:

Well you think you're gonna find yourself a little piece of
paradise
But it ain't happened yet, so girl, you better think twice
Don't you see no matter what you do
You'll never run away from you
And if you keep on runnin'
You'll have to pay the price

[repeat chorus]

F
No, you don't need kicks
Dm
To help you face the world each day
Bb
That road goes nowhere
C
I'm gonna help you find yourself another way
