[Hook]
  Am            G            F
I can't say I'm into it, but who am I to moan
G       Am             C             F               C     Em
I'm the saint, I'm the hypocrite, at your end of the phone
   Am              G             F               G Am
So make clear your interest, and make sure you're alone
         C  G   F
Cause I  am dy- ing

[Chorus]
C               F      C            F      Am    Bm   C    Am  Bm   C
   Cause you're basic,   and you're basically on your own

[Verse 1]
Am           G           F              G
   I'm fine, borderline, so bad it hurts
Am                      C              F              C     Em
   Think fast with your money cause it can't get much worse
Am                     G               F          G   Am
   I get told that I'm far too old for number one perks
              C     F    C   Em
But it's well worth try- ing

[Verse 2]
Am                 G                  F               G
   I'm good in the neighbourhood, can play a big part
Am                     C                          F                C     Em
   I bought this for a thought, for a kiss, for a tale of a broken heart
Am                  G                      F                   G         Am
   I guess we are a thing gonna him, gonna him, but they think there's a start
            C  G    F
That leaves me cry- ing

[Chorus]
C               F      C            F      Am    Bm   C    Am  Bm   C
   Cause you're basic,   and you're basically on your own

[Hook]
  Am            G            F
I can't say I'm into it, but who am I to moan
G       Am             C             F               C     Em
I'm the saint, I'm the hypocrite, at your end of the phone
   Am              G             F               G Am
So make clear your interest, and make sure you're alone
         C  G   F
Cause I  am dy- ing

[Chorus]
C               F      C            F      Am    Bm   C    Am  Bm   C
   Cause you're basic,   and you're basically on your own

[Bridge]
Am                G    F
We are only living our separate lives
G   Am             C           F           C
Ex- cept we do the same things at the same times
Em   Am          G          F          G   Am
I    kept to the moral guidelines that you set
                             C             F             C        Em   Am
For now I'll step towards my leader and disguise my lies like I'm king set
