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

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

Interlude: Bb        Bb     Gm     F

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

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

F
She said nothing
Gm                                    Eb
Oh I wanted words but all I heard was nothing

         Bb
Oh I got nothing
Nothing
F
I got nothing
Nothing

Gm                                    Eb

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
