C      C             C
I was pulling out my hair
     C             Am
The day I got the deal
  Am       Am
Chemically calm
Am              C      G
Was I meant to feel happy
        F                           -Am Em G F- 
That my life was just about to change


C   C    G    G      C    C
One life pretending to be
   G    G          Am
The cow who got the cream
Am  Em   Em   Am  Am   Em    Em    C    C    G
Oh, everybody said    "Marina is a dreamer"
G      C    C   G       G            Am
People like to tell you what you're gonna be
      C              G                F          Am
It's not my problem if you don't see what I see
     C             G             F
And I do not give a damn if you don't believe


   Am            C
My problem is my problem:
       G        F
That I never am happy
        Am               C
It's my problem, it's my problem
       G                F
On how fast I will succeed


        G  Am C           F    C   G
Are you satisfied with an average life?
     F    G  Am             F   C  G
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?


C    C  G     G         C 
High achiever don't you see
C     G       G         Am
Baby, nothing comes for free
Am   Em      Em   Am      Am
They say I'm a control freak
Em     Em   C     C      G
Driven by a greed to succeed
G   C  C   G      
Nobody can stop me


G           Am
Cause it's my problem
    C             G             F
If I want to pack up and run away
         Am            C
It's my business if I feel the need to
 G                   F 
Smoke and drink and swear


        Am               C
It's my problem, it's my problem
     G                F
If I feel the need to hide
            Am           C
And it's my problem if I have no friends
    G              F
And feel I want to die


        G  Am C           F    C   G
Are you satisfied with an average life?
     F    G  Am             F   C  G
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?
        G  Am C           F  C  G
Are you satisfied with an easy ride?
         F     G   Am                F  C  G
Once you cross the line, will you be satisfied?


Am  F Dm Am      Am  F Dm   G        Am F  Dm Am       Em
Saaad inside ... innnn this life ... Unsatisfied, praying
Am  F Dm Am      Am  F Dm   G        Am F  Dm Am       Em
Saaad inside ... innnn this life ... Unsatisfied, waiting


        G  Am C           F   C   G
Are you satisfied with an average life?
     F    G  Am             F   C  G
Do I need to lie to make my way in life?
        G  Am C           F C  G
Are you satisfied with an easy ride?
         F     G   Am                F  C  G
Once you cross the line, will you be satisfied?

  1. the E minor in the bridge should be an E Major but if that is too difficult you could do an E7.

  2. This is written terribly weird. The doubled up chords make this really hard to read.

  3. i feel like instead of C it should be Cmaj7

  4. …… LYIRCS!!!

  5. Ukuspert

  6. ghetto.stilettos

Please do not ask for strumming patterns. Sharing online how to literally play a song (i.e. strumming, rhythm and tempo) is not allowed by the MPA (Music Publishers Association) because of copyright issues.

Carefully listen to the song and try to really "feel" the rhythm. Once you get the basics of strumming, I can assure you it'll go real quick. Maybe the strumming guide can help you on your way.
