D* Am7 C7M There wasn't much I could say to express my confusion Em At least in Japanese anyway. Am7 C7M Em D I was struck by the smell of the staff-room and the dog-like procedure involved Am7 C7M Em when I went to the bathroom. It was a struggle back then. G D C But now... I've learned to use the toilet, G D C And now after failing niikyu I can speak nihongo, or whatever they call it. G D C Now I can ask a girl for her phone number G D C And after 12 long months I'm pretty bloody good at ikebana. Am7 C7M Em D When I arrived in my town, they said there's a super(market) down the road, Am7 C7M Em And it's not too far. It took two hours by train and another hour by car. Am7 C7M I made a nice group of friends in my town, Em They were a very friendly bunch, D Am7 C7M Em But they didn't get let out of the old peoples home, that much. G D C But now... I've made friends my own age, G D C And now I can read a menu, well at least the first page. G D C And now I understand that people don't mean to be dicks, G D C When they say with a patronizing smile, that I'm good with chopsticks. Am7 C7M I have grown to love the love princess, Em D Am7 I just wish I had a little more success with the opposite sex, C7M Em or if I was gay then with the same sex.
