Intro: Am D G C 

Verse 1:

Am                         Dm   
No, I think I'll stay in tonight
G                                        C
Skip the conversations and the 'Oh, I'm fines'
Am                        Dm
No, I'm no stranger to surprise
     G                                    C
This paper town has let me down too many times
          A                  Dm
Why do I even try? Give me a reason why
  G                                     C
I thought that I could trust you, never mind
            Am                          Dm
Why all the switching sides? Where do I draw the line?
  G                                C
I guess I'm too naive to read the signs

Chorus 1:
                          Am
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                    Dm
All they ever do is let me down
                     G
Every time I let somebody in
                             C
Then I find out what they're all about

                          Am
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                         Dm
Wonder where they're all hidin' out
                          G
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                    C
Gotta get up out of this town

Am Dm
      Oh, oh
G C
      Oh, ah

Verse 2:

   Am                     Dm 
I stay up, talkin' to the moon
     G                                 C
Been feelin' so alone in every crowded room
Am                                   Dm      
Can't help but feel like something's wrong, yeah
G                                   C
'Cause the place I'm livin' in just doesn't feel like home

Chorus 2:
                          Am
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                    Dm
All they ever do is let me down
                 G
Every time I let somebody in
                             C   
Then I find out what they're all about
                          Am
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                         Dm
Wonder where they're all hidin' out
                          G
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                    C
Gotta get up out of this town


Am Dm 
       Lookin' for some new friends
G C     
        Oh, oh
Am Dm  
       Oh, ah

Bridge:
Am
I just wanna talk about nothin'
                         Dm
With somebody that means somethin'
Gm
Spell the names of all our dreams and demons
                     C
For the times that I don't understand
Am
Tell me what's the point of a moon like this
         Dm
When I'm alone again
G
Can I run away to somewhere beautiful
             C
Where nobody knows my name?

Chorus 3:
                          Am
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                    Dm
All they ever do is let me down
          G
And I let somebody in
                            C
But I find out what they're all about
                          Am
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                    Dm
All they ever do is let me down
                          G
I'm just lookin' for some real friends
                         C
Gotta get up out of this town, yeah

Outro:
Am Dm
      Oh, oh
G C

      Oh, ah

  1. I use Am Dm G C, strumming D-U-T ( Down, Wait, Up Tap)

  2. capo on fret 3, add a C7 after de C and try to play F instead of Dm and it sounds way better :)
