Intro: G G7
 
Chorus:
          C
When I'm away from you
                 B7
I'm happier than ever
                        Am
Wish I could explain it better
                 Dm    G
I wish it wasn't true, mmm
 
Verse 1:
          C
Give me a day or two
                     B7
To think of something clever
                  Am
To write myself a letter
                   D        G
To tell me what to do, mm-mm
C
Do you read my interviews?
B7
Or do you skip my avenue?
     Am
When you said you were passin' through
      Fm
Was I even on your way?
  C
I knew when I asked you to -When I asked you to-
   B7
Be cool about what I was tellin' you
      Am
You'd do the opposite of what you said you'd do -What you said you'd do-
    Fm
And I'd end up more afraid
             B7
Don't say it isn't fair
                                   Am            G    D
You clearly weren't aware that you made me miserable, ooh
   Dm                  G
So if you really wanna know
 
Chorus:
          C
When I'm away from you -When I'm away from you-
                 B7
I'm happier than ever -I'm happier than ever-
                       Am
Wish I could explain it better -Wish I could explain it better-
                 Dm    G
I wish it wasn't true, mmm
 
Instrumental: C B7 Am F
 
Verse 2:
C              B7                  Am
You called me again, drunk in your Benz
             F
Drivin' home under the influence
C                B7                       Am
You scared me to death but I'm wastin' my breath
                F
'Cause you only listen to your xxxxin' friends
C                    B7
I don't relate to you
Am                     F
I don't relate to you, no
                 C                   B7
'Cause I'd never treat me this xxxxty
            Am            F
You made me hate this city
 
Verse 3:
                 C                     B7
And I don't talk xxxx about you on the internet
           Am              F
Never told anyone anything bad
                     C                       B7
'Cause that xxxx's embarrassing, you were my everything
                 Am                      F
And all that you did was make me xxxxin' sad
   C                            B7
So don't waste the time I don't have
    Am                        F
And don't try to make me feel bad
                   C                          B7
I could talk about every time that you showed up on time
                Am                          F
But I'd have an empty line 'cause you never did
               C                    B7
Never paid any mind to my mother or friends, so I
              Am                         F
Shut them all out for you 'cause I was a kid
 
Outro:
C                     B7
You ruined everything good
       Am                    F
Always said you were misunderstood
C                        B7
Made all my moments your own
Am                     F
Just xxxxin' leave me alone
