C                  Cmaj7             F

Shooting off vicious collections of words

       C                 Cmaj7       F

The losers make fact by the things they have heard

       C             Cmaj7     F           G            G7 

And I find myself trying hard to defend them

 

C              Cmaj7         F

I made decisions some right and some wrong

      C               Cmaj7     F

And I let some love go I wish wasn't gone

    C                      Cmaj7     F                                  G        G7 

These things and more I wish I had not done, But I've done

 

Chorus:

                       F                              C

But I can’t go back, and I don’t want to

                           F      G

‘Cause all my mistakes     brought me to you

 

/ C - - / Cmaj7 - - / F - - / - - - /

/ G - - / - - - / G7 (hold) - - / - - - /

 

C                  Cmaj7                  F

I have some friends they don't know who I am

    C               Cmaj7    F

So I write quotations around the word “friends”

      C             Cmaj7       F                                     G        G7 

But I have a couple that have always been there for me

 

      C                      Cmaj7        F

And I missed some fun 'cause I worked through the dawn

     C                  Cmaj7     F

Expecting your praise when I returned home

      C              Cmaj7          F                           G        G7 

But I paid the cost 'cause I got left alone for the songs
