Intro: Eb Ab

Verse:
   Eb
Hey Dad look at me
  Ab 
Think back and talk to me 
       Eb
Did I grow up according
  Ab 
To plan? 
         Eb
Do you think I'm wasting my time
  Ab
Doing things I wanna do?
         Eb
But it hurts when you
                Ab
Disapprove all along 

Pre-Chorus:
        Fm
And now I try hard to make it
Ab                         Eb
I just want to make you proud 
 Eb
I'm never gonna be good
            Fm
Enough for you
 Fm
I can't pretend that
       Ab 
I'm alright
 Ab                Bb
And you can't change me

Chorus:
          Eb
'Cuz we lost it all
          Bb
Nothing lasts forever
     Cm 
I'm sorry
              Ab
I can't be Perfect
           Eb 
Now it's just too late
          Bb 
And we can't go back
    Cm 
I'm sorry
            Ab
I can't be Perfect

Interlude: Eb Ab

Verse:
 Eb
I try not to think
 Ab 
About the pain I feel inside
         Eb 
Did you know you used to be
     Ab 
My hero?
         Eb 
All the days
      Eb
You spent with me
 Ab 
Now seem so far away
         Eb 
And it feels like you don't
       Ab 
Care anymore 

Pre-Chorus:
        Fm
And now I try hard to make it 
 Ab                     Eb
I just want to make you proud
 Eb 
I'm never gonna be good 
           Fm
Enough for you
         Fm             Ab 
I can't stand another fight
                Bb               
And nothing's alright 

Chorus:
         Eb
'Cuz we lost it all

Bridge:
 Ab                Bb
Nothing's gonna change
      Eb 
The things that you said
 Ab               Bb 
Nothing's gonna make this
 Eb 
Right again
 Cm                         
Please don't turn your back
    Bb 
I can't believe it's hard
          Ab 
Just to talk to you
                Ab 
But you don't understand
