Verse:
     D
Well if you wanted honesty, that's all you had to say.
     Bm
I never want to let you down or have you go, it's better off this way.
     Em
For all the dirty looks, the photographs your boyfriend took,
     A
Remember when you broke your foot from jumping out the second floor?

Chorus:
    D
I'm not okay.
           Bm
I'm not okay.
           Em
I'm not okay.
              A
You wear me out.

Verse - same as first -:
What will it take to show you that it's not the life it seems? - I'm not okay -
I told you time and time again you sing the words but don't know what they mean - I'm not okay -
So be a joke and look, another line without a hook
I held you close as we both shook for the last time take a good hard look!

Chorus:
    D
I'm not okay.
           Bm
I'm not okay.
           Em
I'm not okay.
              A
You wear me out.

Bridge:
Forget about the dirty looks
The photographs your boyfriend took?
You said you read me like a book, but the pages are all torn and frayed

Chorus:
I'm okay.
I'm okay!
I'm okay, now
- I'm okay, now -

Bridge:
But you really need to listen to me
Because I'm telling you the truth
I mean this, I'm okay!
- Trust Me -

Outro:
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
Well, I'm not okay
I'm not o-xxxxing-kay
I'm not okay
I'm not okay
- Okay -

  1. embir.fire

    um, chords please?

  2. good tabs, pretty accurate.

  3. In here, you say “I told you time and time again you sing the words but don’t know what they mean – I’m not okay –
    So be a joke and look, another line without a hook”
    However, I believe the lyric is
    /To be a joke and look/, not /so be a joke and look/
    I also think having the rest of the chords would be nice :)

  4. Intro please..?
