Sum 41




Intro: Riff x1



G#5  E5  B5  F#5  (x2)


G#5                           E5 

Everybody's got their problems

B5                         F#5 
Everybody says the same thing to you

G#5                                    E5 
It's just a matter how you solve them

B5                                             F#5 
And knowing how to change the things you've been through

G#5                           E5 
I feel I've come to realize

B5                F#5 
How fast life can be compromised

G#5                                    E5 
Stand back to see what's going on

B5             F#5 
I can't believe this happened to you


G#5  E5  B5  F#5  (x2)


G#5                                      E5 
It's just a problem that we're faced with am I

B5                             F#5 
not the only one that hates to standby

G#5                             E5 
Complication's headed first in this line

B5                                            F#5 
With all these pictures running through my mind

G#5                 E5 
Knowing endless consequences

B5         F#5 
I feel so useless in this

G#5                   E5 
Can't patch that back and as for me,

B5            F#5 

I can't believe


G#5                        E5 
Part of me, won't agree

                     B5                   F#5 
Cause I don't know if it's for sure

        G#5        E5 
Suddenly, suddenly

              B5         F#5 
I don't feel so insecure

Everybody's got their problems

B5                         F#5   
Everybody says the same things to you

G#5                                  E5 
It's just a matter how you solve them

B5                                             F#5 (hold x3) 
What else are we supposed to do



G#5        E5 
Why do things that matter the

B5                   F#5

 G#5               E5 
close?  Now that I find out, it ain't so

bad, I don't think I knew what I had




G#5 (hold)
