Verse:
Eb               Eb
am I better off dead
Cm                Bb
am I better off a quitter
Eb                       Eb
They say I'm better off now
Cm                   Bb
Than i ever was with her
Ab                     Cm             Bb
As they take me to my local down the street
            Gm      Ab            Cm             Bb
I'm smiling but I'm dying trying not to drag my feet
Eb              Eb           Cm                Bb
They say a few drinks will help me to forget her
Eb                 Eb      Cm            Bb
But after one too many I know that I'm never
Ab             Cm                      Bb
Only they can see where this is gonna end
             Gm        Ab            Cm              Bb
But they all think I'm crazy but to me it's perfect sense

Chorus:
Eb
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
Bb
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over town
Cm
I'm swearing if i go there now
Ab
I can change your mind turn it all around
Eb
And I know that I'm drunk but I'll say the words
Bb
And she'll listen this time even though 
Cm
Dial her number and confess to her 
Ab
I'm still in love but all i heard was nothing

Interlude: Eb        Eb     Cm     Bb

Verse:
Eb            Eb            Cm                   Bb
So I stumble there, along the railings and the fences
Eb                     Eb                Cm          Bb
I know if I'm face to face that she'll come to her senses 
Ab                       Cm              Bb                                   
Every drunk step i take leads me to her door
Gm                       Ab
If she sees how much I'm hurting
       Cm               Bb
She'll take me back for sure

Chorus:
Eb
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
Bb
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over town
Cm
I'm swearing if i go there now
Ab
I can change your mind turn it all around
Eb
And I know that I'm drunk but I'll say the words

Ab

Eb

Bb
She said nothing
Cm                                    Ab
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

         Eb
Oh I got nothing
Nothing
Bb
I got nothing
Nothing

Cm                                    Ab
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

In the verses it’s ‘G, D, Bm, A’, not ‘D, D, Bm, A’ and in the chorus it’s ‘And she’ll listen this time even though they’re slurred’

Definitely not a hornet

Does anyone know the strum pattern..?

So is -2

hardlyreal

+5 is easy
