Intro -x4-: Gbm  Bm  Dbm
 
Verse 1:
Gbm               Bm
I'm not a bad guy
   Dbm                   Gbm                       Bm Dbm
So don't treat me bad if I'm feeling sad, alright?
                       Gbm                          Bm
Please don't be mad if I don't smile back, alright?
     Dbm                     Gbm                        Bm
If I xxxx up my words, don't think I'm absurd, alright?
Dbm
Alright?
 
Pre-Chorus:
Gbm
I'm physically exhausted
Dbm         Bm
Tired of my knuckles piercing
Gbm                          Dbm
I'm chewing gum to pass this time
         Bm
Sadness, can't you see it?
Gbm                     Dbm
You're too busy seeking selfish wishes
Bm
Look at how I'm feeling
Gbm                          Bm
You write me up and say it's love
      -nc-
And I can't believe it
 
Chorus:
Gbm                   Bm
Baby, can you meet me tonight in detention?
Gbm                            Bm
I can feel your blood pressure rise, xxxx this tension
Gbm                       Bm
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Gbm                        Bm
Pretending everything's alright is detention
 
Post-Chorus:
Gbm
De-detention
Bm
De-detention
Gbm                         -nc-
Pretending everything's all right is -Shh!-
 
Verse 2:
Gbm                              Bm Dbm
The teachers don't care about me
                    Gbm                  Bm Dbm
xxxx how I feel, as long as I make money
Gbm                            Bm     Dbm
They let them do whatever they want to me
            Gbm                        Bm
They're the customer, I'm chopped meat
            Dbm
I'm chopped meat
 
Pre-Chorus:
Gbm
I'm physically exhausted
Dbm         Bm
Tired of my knuckles piercing
Gbm                          Dbm
I'm chewing gum to pass this time
         Bm
Sadness, can't you see it?
Gbm                     Dbm
You're too busy seeking selfish wishes
Bm
Look at how I'm feeling
Gbm                          Bm
You write me up and say it's love
      -nc-
And I can't believe it
 
Chorus:
Gbm                   Bm
Baby, can you meet me tonight in detention?
Gbm                            Bm
I can feel your blood pressure rise, xxxx this tension
Gbm                       Bm
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Gbm                        Bm
Pretending everything's alright is detention
 
Post-Chorus:
Gbm
De-detention
Bm
De-detention
Gbm                         -nc-
Pretending everything's all right is -Shh!-
 
Bridge:
Gbm                           Bm
I wanna go home and you say, "Now is not the time"
Gbm                                 Bm
xxxx being all alone in back of the classroom, ah
Gbm                                          Bm
Stop calling up my phone, trying to say that I've been out of line
Gbm                                    Bm
When all I ever asked was to go to the bathroom
 
Interlude -x2-: Gbm  Bm  Dbm

Baby, can you meet me tonight in detention?
Gbm                            Bm
I can feel your blood pressure rise, xxxx this tension
Gbm                       Bm
Let me crawl up into your mind, did I mention?
Gbm                        Bm                Gbm
Pretending everything's alright is detention

   Bm  Dbm
Tonight
Gbm                                 Bm Dbm
I can feel your blood pressure rise
Gbm                       Bm  Dbm
Let me crawl up into your mind
Gbm                              -nc-
Pretending everything's alright -is detention!-

Jada Sanaa

what strumming pattern did you use ?

Ingrid

I used DDUUDU but idk

Kaitlyn

I have a plucking pattwrn for the intro. If you wanna know its (transposed +1l

On Em pluck all the strings twice, then with em still play the strings c-a-c

Then with a play the c string then pluck the bottom two strings together twice

Then with b flat i think its a b chord play c-e-a-e
Then repeat for the rest of the intro

Then play dudu slowly and kinda dramatically for the rest of the song

morgan

It’s not knuckles piercing it’s knuckles beating.
