E             Bsus4
   My name is Luka
Asus2            Bsus4
   I live on the second floor
E           Bsus4
   I live upstairs from you
Asus9                 Bsus4
   Yes I think you've seen me before
C#m7           Bsus4              C#m7
   If you hear something late at night
                Bsus4                  Asus2
   Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight
               Bsus4
   Just don't ask me what it was
Asus2          Bsus4
   Just don't ask me what it was
Asus2          Bsus4
   Just don't ask me what it was

Maybe it's because I'm clumsy
I try not to talk too loud
Maybe it's because I'm crazy
I try not to act too proud
They only hit until you cry
And after that you don't ask why
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore

E  Bsus4  Asus2  Bsus4    E  Bsus4  Asus2  Bsus4
[guitar solo]

Yes, I think I'm okay
Walked into the door again
If you ask that's what I'll say
And it's not your business anyway
I guess I'd like to be alone
With nothing broken, nothing thrown
Just don't ask me how I am
Just don't ask me how I am
Just don't ask me how I am

My name is Luka
I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you've seen me before
If you hear something late at night
Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was
Just don't ask me what it was
And they only hit until you cry
And after that you don't ask why
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore
You just don't argue anymore

Good effort, you are the only tabber of this song that mentions the Capo on the 2nd fret (which is rather important) The others have those stupid F# chords etc. which has you breaking your fingers trying to play them.
