Intro:  D  A  Em  G  x2

D                        A
This is a song with the same four chords
      Em                               G
I use most of the time when I've got something on my mind
       D                         A
And I don't want to squander the moment
               Em                         G                    
Trying to come up with a more complicated way to say what I want to say

D                    A
People were mean to you
Em                             G
but I always thought you were cool
D                           A
clicking down the concrete hallway
            Em
with your spiked heels 
         G
back in high school.


D  A  Em  G  x2

D                    A     
It's good to be young but let's not kid ourselves
      Em                              G
It's better to pass on through those years and come out the other side
D                      A
With our hearts still beating
       Em                   G
Having stared down demons; come back breathing

D                    A
People were mean to you
Em                             G
but I always thought you were cool
D                            A
clicking down the concrete hallway
           Em
with your spiked heels 
         G
back in high school.

G              A
You deserved better than you got
           D                                   G
Someone's got to say it sometime because it's true.
Em                                    A
People should have told you you were awesome,
            D                    G ***
Instead of taking advantage of you.

D           Em        A      (half beat only for both Em and A)
I hope you love your life
Em           G
Like I love mine.
D                                 A                    Em  
I hope the painful memories only flex their power over you
    G
A little of the time.
D                 A
We held onto the hope of better days coming
Em                       G
And when we did we were right.
D                      A
I hope the people who did you wrong
Em                           G
Have trouble sleeping every night.

D                    A
People were mean to you
Em                             G
but I always thought you were cool
D                            A
clicking down the concrete hallway
           Em
with your spiked heels 
         G
back in high school.


Outro:  D  A  Em  G  x2

*** In the video I transcribed this from, he seems to plays A here. However he 
sings to a G chord and I think it sounds better.
