This is the correct way to play this on the acoustic without screwing with your tuning.
other tab had all major and minor chords but it's mostly power chords. I When doing the
at the start, hammer on the 'minor' (so it's A5 at first then Am). For the F5, you need 
thumb to grab the lowest note  so it's optional. The G sounds like Gsus2 but might be
G at the end of the verse. Lastly, the E5 power chord comes in the pauses between lyrics 
is usually strummed just once.


[Verse]

                Am                                   F5      E5
Looking back at me I see that I never really got it right (pause)
            Am
I never stopped to think of you
               F5                               E5
I'm always wrapped up in things I cannot win (pause)
               Am
You are the antidote that gets me by
                F5                        Am     F5
Something strong like a drug that gets me hiiiiiiiiiiigh


[Chorus]

         F5             Am
What I really meant to say
         Gsus2
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
F5        Am             G
I never meant to be so cold
            G
Never meant to be so cold

         F5             Am
What I really meant to say
         Gsus2
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
F5        Am             G
I never meant to be so cold

Never meant to be so


[Verse]

 Am                                   F5
Cold to you, I'm sorry about all the lies
  E5          Am
Maybe in a different light
                            F5                       Am
You can see me stand on my own again cause now I can see
              Am
You are the antidote that got me by
F5                                Am           F5
Something strong like a drug that got me hiiiiiiiiiiigh


[Chorus]

         F5             Am
What I really meant to say
         Gsus2
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
F5        Am            G
I never meant to be so cold
            G
Never meant to be so cold

         F5            Am
What I really meant to say
         Gsus2
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
F5         Am            G
I never meant to be so cold
           Am
Never meant to be so cold

           Am
I never meant to be, so cold


[Interlude]

(ohhh part just uses same chorus progression)

F5  Am  Gsus2   F5  Am  G  G


[Bridge]

F5                Am
I never really wanted you to see
             Gsus2
The screwed side of me that I keep
F5                Am
Locked inside of me so deep
             Gsus2
it always seems to get to me

F5                Am
I never really wanted you to go
             Gsus2
So many things you should have known
F5                Am
I guess for me there's just no hope
             G
I never meant to be so cold


[Chorus]

         F5            Am
What I really meant to say
            G5
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
F        Am             G
I never meant to be so cold
            G
Never meant to be so cold

         F5            Am
What I really meant to say
            G5
Is I'm sorry for the way I am
F        Am             G
I never meant to be so cold
           Am
Never meant to be so cold




  Am     F5     E5   Gsus2    G
