Here It Goes Again

Words & Music:

John Stephens (OK Go)


This is fully transcribed in Guitar World.


C5    | C5    | C  G  | C    | C   | C  G  | Bb  F  |


C                              G           

It could be ten, but then again, I can't remember half an

Eb                          F

Hour since a quarter to four.

C                                 G

Throw on your clothes, the second side of Surfer Rosa,

        Bb                          F    C  G  Bb  F

And you leave me with my jaw on the floor.



    Em                         Am

Ah, just when you think you're in control,

              Em                       Am                G

Just when you think you've got a hold, just when you get on a roll:



C        G                Bb         F             Am

Oh, here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again.

G                  C

Oh, here it goes again.

C        G                       Bb            F                Am

I should have known, should have known, should have known again,

G                  C   Ab                   G   C

But here it goes again.  Oh, here it goes again.


It starts out easy, something simple, something sleazy,

Something inching past the edge of the reserve.

Now, through lines of the cheap venetian blinds,

Your car is pulling off of the curb.




I guess there's got to be a break in the monotony,

But Jesus, when it rains how it pours.

Throw on your clothes, the second side of Surfer Rosa,

And you leave me, yeah, you leave me.





Ab              Bb         Eb

Oh, oh, here it goes again.
