D                         A            Em        A
   And I'm just a waste of her energy

D          A                            Em        A
   And she's just a waste of my time
D       A                           Em        A
   So why don't we get together

                       D                A       Em     A
And we could waste everything tonight

D                       A                           Em         A
   And I don't pretend to know what you know  
D                              A                             Em               A
   Now please don't pretend to know what's on my mind

D               A                                     Em                     A
   If we already knew everything that everybody knows

                     D                  A        Em       A
We would have nothing to learn tonight

                            D                    A     Em       A
And we would have nothing to show tonight

 

CHORUS:

             G (2)

Oh, but everybody thinks that everybody knows

           A (2)
About everybody else nobody knows

G (2)
Anything about themselves

            A (2)
Cause they’re all worried about everybody else

   And this life's just a waste of our time

D                            A             Em      A
   So why don't we get together
