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

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

Interlude: F        F     Dm     C

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

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

And she'll listen this time even though 
Dm
Dial her number and confess to her 
Bb
I'm still in love but all i heard was nothing

C
She said nothing
Dm                                    Bb
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

         F
Oh I got nothing
Nothing
C
I got nothing
Nothing

Dm                                    Bb
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

Bridge:

Oh sometimes love is intoxicating

Am    Bb

Oh you're coming down your hands are shaking

Am    Bb

When you realise there's no one waiting

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
