Intro: Gbm D A E - x2 -

Verse 1:
  Gbm			      D
I'm tired of being what you want me to be
   A		           E
Feeling so faithless lost under the surface
  Gbm                       D
Don't know what you're expecting of me
   A                        E		    D      E
Put under the pressure of walking in your shoes

Pre-Chorus:
- Caught in the undertone just caught in the undertone -
       Gbm		A                D        E
Every step I take is another mistake to you

- Caught in the undertone just caught in the undertone -

Chorus:
  Gbm             D		       A
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
		 E		    Gbm	
I've become so tired so much more aware
		     D		 A
I've becoming this all I want to do
		 E		     Gbm
Is be more like me and be less like you

Verse 2:
			       D
Can't you see that you're smothering me
    A		       E	      Gbm
Holding too tightly afraid to lose control
			     D
Cause everything that you thought I would be
       A           E                D        E
Has fallen apart right in front of you

Pre-Chorus:
- Caught in the undertone just caught in the undertone -
       Gbm	             A		      D	      E
Every step that I take is another mistake to you

- Caught in the undertone just caught in the undertone -
	     Gbm		              A       E
And every second I waste is more than I can take

Chorus:
  Gbm             D		       A
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
		 E		    Gbm	
I've become so tired so much more aware
		     D		 A
I've becoming this all I want to do
		 E		     Gbm
Is be more like me and be less like you

Bridge:
	E
And I know
       Gbm  A  Gbm   E   D
I may end up failing too
	E
But I know
           Db - hold -
You were just like me with someone disappointed in you

Chorus:
  Gbm             D		       A
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
		 E		    Gbm	
I've become so tired so much more aware
		D		 A
I've becoming this all I want to do
		 E		     Gbm
Is be more like me and be less like you


                D		       A
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
			  E
- Tired of being what you want me to be -


 Gbm              D		       A
I've become so numb I can't feel you there
			  E
- Tired of being what you want me to be -

    A———0———0——-|
    E—0—2—4—0——4–0-|

  11. This is really good, but it’s ‘undertow’ not ‘undertone’

  12. this is a great version of this song in the 2 steps down transposed version

    at the end
    I imagine that outro is supposed to be the tones at the end of the song.
    They should go like this

    Em C G C G D
