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

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

Interlude: Db        Db     Bbm     Ab

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

Chorus:
Db
And my mates are all there trying to calm me down
Ab
'Cause I'm shouting your name all over town
Bbm
I'm swearing if i go there now
Gb

And I know that I'm drunk but I'll say the words

She said nothing
Bbm                                    Gb
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

Oh I got nothing
Nothing

I got nothing
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
