Intro: Dbm

Verse:
    Dbm         Gbm
I'm sorry if I seem uninterested
   Dbm                    Ab
Or I'm not listenin', or I'm indifferent
Dbm            Gbm
Truly I ain't got no business here
    Dbm                         Ab
But since my friends are here, I just came to kick it
    Dbm                          Gbm
But really I would rather be at home all by myself
            Dbm                             Ab
Not in this room with people who don't even care about my well-being
  Dbm                      Gbm
I don't dance, don't ask, I don't need a boyfriend
   Dbm                Ab
So you can, go back, please enjoy your party
        Dbm    Gbm
I'll be here, Somewhere in the corner
      Dbm                             Ab
Under clouds of marijuana, With this boy who's hollering
             Dbm              Gbm
I can hardly hear, Over this music I don't listen to
    Am                            E                                  Am -plays into Chorus-
And I don't wanna get with you, So tell my friends that I'll be over here

Chorus:
         Gbm             Dbm
Oh-oh-oh here, oh-oh-oh here
     Ab                             Dbm
Oh I asked myself, what am I doin' here?
         Gbm             Dbm
Oh-oh-oh here, oh-oh-oh here
            Ab
And I can't wait 'til we can break up out

Verse:
  Dbm                  Gbm
Excuse me if I seem a little unimpressed with this
   Dbm                        Ab
An anti-social pessimist, but usually I don't mess with this
    Dbm              Gbm
And I know you mean only the best and your
  Dbm                               Ab
Intentions aren't to bother me, But honestly I'd rather be
Dbm                               Gbm
Somewhere with my people, We can kick it and just listen to
     Dbm                             Ab
Some music with a message, like we usually do
                      Dbm                         Gbm
And we'll discuss our big dreams, How we plan to take over the planet
   Dbm                   Ab                                   Dbm
So pardon my manners, I hope you'll understand that I'll be here
Gbm                                 Dbm                           Ab
Not there in the kitchen, With the girl who's always gossiping about her friends
                     Dbm    Gbm                                   Dbm
So tell them I'll be here, Right next to the boy who's throwin' up
                                  Ab
Cause he can't take what's in his cup no more
                Am -plays into Chorus-
Oh God why am I here?

Chorus:
         Gbm             Dbm
Oh-oh-oh here, oh-oh-oh here
     Ab                             Dbm
Oh I asked myself, what am I doin' here?
         Gbm             Dbm
Oh-oh-oh here, oh-oh-oh here
            Ab
And I can't wait 'til we can break up out of here

Bridge:
Gbm                       Dbm                  
Hours later congregating next to the refrigerator
Ab
Some girl talkin' 'bout her haters, she ain't got none
    Gbm                          Dbm
How did it ever come to this? I should've never come to this
   E                                                -mute until Dm-
So holla at me, I'll be in the car when you're done
                                          Gbm
I'm stand-offish, don't want what you're offerin'
               Dbm             Ab                     Dbm
And I'm done talkin', awfully sad it had to be that way
                               Gbm
So tell my people when they're ready that I'm ready
        Dbm                         Ab
And I'm standin' by the TV with my beanie low
                Am -plays into Chorus-
Yo I'll be over here

Chorus:
         Gbm             Dbm
Oh-oh-oh here, oh-oh-oh here
     Ab                             Dbm
Oh I asked myself, what am I doin' here?
         Gbm             Dbm
Oh-oh-oh here, oh-oh-oh here
            Ab                                Dbm
And I can't wait 'til we can break up out of here
          Gbm                        Dbm
If you're ready then I'm ready yeah yeah
          Ab                         Dbm
If you're ready then I'm ready yeah yeah

  1. Sunripe_Lemon

    Strumming pattern anyone?

  2. It sounds a lot more like the original recording of the song at 1+, but I replace the second Dm in the pattern with an F. It sounds so much better!

  3. another TOP spacehead

    In the words of AWOLNATION: *It’s not supposed to be easy! That’s why it feels so flipping good!* ;p

  4. It seems like this was taken from her acoustic performance on Ryan Seacrest

  5. This needs to be fixed. ASAP.

  6. +3 is the easiest

  7. most of these chords are unnecessary – the song sounds fine with just Am, Dm, and Em.
