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

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

Interlude: B        B     Abm     Gb

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

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

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

         B
Oh I got nothing
Nothing
Gb
I got nothing
Nothing

Abm                                    E
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

Oh you're coming down your hands are shaking

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
