Intro: D

           D                                              Bm 
I'm just setting, I'm just setting a trap And I'm not pulling, no
                                             G 
I'm not pulling for you, you're just pulling at me
                                          D     
I'm not a betting man but this is a sure thing  
                Dsus4  D 
Baba baba baba bababababa
               D
I've been to Tokyo and to South Africa
        Bm
So many places that you might say I've seen it all
      G
But my favorite place is the warm embrace
                D
Of holding your hair back in a bathroom stall


D                  Bm
Everything I do is bittersweet
           G                        Asus4      A
You could tell me secrets that I'll probably repeat
         D                         Bm
I'm not trying to hurt you, I just love to speak
   G                        Asus4
It feels like we're pulling teeth
   A 
So bittersweet


 D 
Whoa hoo ho 
 Bm 
I guess that's how its gotta be
 G                             A
I guess that's how its gotta be


              D
All that hate is gonna burn you up
             Bm
It keeps me warm at night Warmer than anyone
                  G
I think how many drinks I've had

No more in either hand
                       
I'm slurring on purpose

And it's certainly worth it
 A  
Woaahh


D                  Bm
Everything I do is bittersweet
           G                      Asus4      A
You could tell me secrets that I'll probably repeat
       D                              Bm
I'm not trying to hurt you, I just love to speak
     G                       Asus4
It feels like we're pulling teeth
      A 
So bittersweet


 D 
Whoo hoo ho
                        Bm 
I guess that's how its gotta be
                         G 
I guess that's how its gotta be
                         A 
I guess that's how its gotta be


Bm
You and me
        E7
Another puppetry
            G                    Asus4 A
It's such a mystery why you're here
Bm                          E7
And you became as clear as cellophane
            G
My voice of reasoning
A                                     Asus4          Aa 
I don't think I can take the way you make me out to be


             D
I'm just setting, I'm just setting a trap
             Bm 
And I'm not pulling, no
            G    
I'm not pulling for ya


D                  Bm
Everything I do is bittersweet
           G                      Asus4      A
You could tell me secrets that I'll probably repeat
       D                              Bm
I'm not trying to hurt you, I just love to speak
     G                       Asus4
It feels like we're pulling teeth
      A   D                  Bm
So bittersweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet
     G                          Asus4
It feels like we're pulling teeth
A         D                   Bm
So bittersweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet
     G                           Asus4
It feels like we're pulling teeth
A             D
So bittersweet

  1. Is there any chord I can use instead of Bm?

  2. I suggest changing the second part of the chorus from G A to Asus4 to G Gm and then D. (It feels like we’re pulling teeth, so bitter sweet… and then to the verse)

  3. myfriendisagoodsinger

    I prefer +3. It isn’t the easiest, but it suits my voice better.

  4. One of my favorite bonus tracks, by far. Thanks for putting it on here! (Also, I relate on a personal level to it going bitersweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet)

  5. SassyPilots

    Does anyone know the strumming pattern??

  6. during the verses, after using the G chord i use Gm because it sounds better to me. feel free to do so if you want

  7. setsquareangle

    (-2) is wayy easier

  8. jolala678

    -2 is the best

  9. Tijuanadance

    Instead of “Another puppetry” the lyrics should be “In a proverbial tree”
