VERSE 1:(Bass over)
Em
I'm not sure,
                             D#/A#
What I'm looking for anymore.
Em
I just know,
                   G
That I'm harder to console.
Em
I don't see who I'm trying to be,
              D#/A#
Instead of me.
Em
But the key,
                 G        
Is a question of control.


REFRAIN 1: (Riff over)

|G  C/G|Em  G|


VERSE 2:
Em
Can you say,
                                  
What you're trying to play anyway,
D#/A#
I just pay,
             Em                              
While you're breaking all the rules,
        G
All the signs that I find.
          Em
Have been underlined,
D#/A#
Devils thrive on the drive.
        Em
That is fuelled.


CHORUS 1:
Em
All this running around,
          G                     
Well it's getting me down.
               C/G           A    Em
Just give me a pain that I'm used to.

I don't need to believe,
        G
All the dreams you conceive.
         C/G                 
You just need to achieve,
               A     Em
Something that rings true.

|Em   D#/A#|Em   D#/A#^D#/A#|


VERSE 3: (Bass drone over)
Em
There's a hole in your soul,

Like an animal.
D#/A#
With no conscience,
           Em
Repentance unknown.
           G
Close your eyes,
                  Em
Pay the price for your paradise.
D#/A#
Devils feed on the seeds,
         Em
That are sown.


REFRAIN 2: (Riff over)

VERSE 4: (Bass drone over)
Em
Can't conceal what I feel,

What I know is real.
D#/A#
No mistaking the faking,
  Em
I care.
              G
With a prayer in the air,
              Em
I will leave it there.
D#/A#
On a note full of hope,
    Em
Not despair.


CHORUS 2:
Em
All this running around,
          G

All the dreams you conceive.
         C/G                 
You just need to achieve,
               A     Em
Something that rings true.

NOTES:
1.  “A Pain That I'm Used To" is the second single and opening track of the album ‘Playing the Angel’ 
by Depeche Mode, and the forty-second DM single overall. The single was released on 12 December 2005 
by Mute Records. ...”
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Pain_That_I'm_Used_To
2.  The music video is directed by Uwe Flade, who also directed the "Precious" single. It features 
much more live action sequences (in a race track), than the "Precious" video and even David Gahan's 
"Bottle Living" video. Depeche Mode's live drummer Christian Eigner also appears in the video.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Pain_That_I'm_Used_To
3.  This version, I believe is closest to capturing that original ‘drone-like’ quality of this song, 
that is played live by DM, in opening tuning.
