Man made up a story said that I should believe him
Am               G/B                    C5         D
Go and tell your white knight that he's handsome in hindsight

I  don't   care
          F                 Esus4             Am
You're so worried about the maiden though you know
      G/B
She's only waiting
  Csus2      Csus2/D
spent the whole life being   graded on
    Am       G/B               Csus2  Csus2/D   
the sanctity of patience and a dumb  appreciation
        Am          G/B                Csus2         D
But the story needs some mending and a better happy ending
      F                     C/E  F
Cause I don't want the next best thing
       F                E       Am
No no I don't want the next best thing

Really not that hard when you realize a lot of the suspended chord progressions 
are just walking the bass note.
