How You Remind Me

Nickelback


Drop-D Tuning: D-A-D-G-B-E

 

Verse 1:

Csus2                           Csus/F

       Never made it as a wise man

Bbsus2                           Bbsus2/Eb

         I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing

Csus2                              Csus/F

       Tired of living like a blind man

Bbsus2                                    Bbsus2/Eb

        I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling

Csus2      Ebsus2           Bbsus2 (hold 2)

     And this is how you remind me

Csus2            Csus2/F    Bbsus2            Bbsus2/Eb

      This is how      you remind me of what I really am

Csus2             Csus2/F     Bb5                 Eb5

      This is how       you remind me of what I really am

 

Chorus:

C5                       Eb5              Bb5                        F5

     It's not like you to say sorry, I was waiting on a different story

C5                   Eb5        Bb5                        F5

    This time I'm mistaken for handing you a heart worth breaking

C5                          Eb5                  Bb5                               F5

and I've been wrong, I've been down, been to the bottom of every bottle

C5                  Eb5                 Bb5                    F5

    These five words in my head scream "are we havin' fun yet?"

Verse 2:

Csus2                            Csus/F

     It's not like you didn't know that

Bbsus2                              Bbsus2/Eb

      I said I love you and I swear I still do

Csus2                            Csus/F

     And it must have been so bad

Bbsus2                                           Bbsus2/Eb

       Cause livin' with me must have damn near killed you

Csus2            Csus2/F    Bbsus2            Bbsus2/Eb

      This is how      you remind me of what I really am

Csus2             Csus2/F     Bb5                 Eb5

      This is how       you remind me of what I really am

 

Chorus

 

C5        F5      Bb5      Eb5 

    Yeah,   yeah,   yeah,   no,   no

C5        F5      Bb5      Eb5 

    Yeah,   yeah,   yeah,   no,   no
