    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

     

    Chorus

     

    Instrumental:

    / C - - / Cmaj7 - - / F - - / - - - / x2
