[Intro]

C                       F            C
Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck.
F             C         G
Some nights I call it a draw.
C                            F                 C
Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle.
F              C                 G
Some nights I wish they'd just fall off

       F         C           F         C
But I still wake up, I still see your ghost.
               F         C          G
Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for, oh.
F          C          F        C
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Am                     G            
Most nights, I don't know anymore

F  C  F  C  F  C  G x2


[Verse 1]

F                 C
This is it, boys. This is war.
F            C
What are we waiting for?
F             C                 G
Why don't we break the rules already?
       F            C
I was never one to believe the hype.
F                   C
Save that for the black and white.
       F                    C
I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked,
     G
But here they come again to jack my style
               F - C
And that's alright
            F           C
I found a martyr in my bed tonight.
    F                    C
She stops my bones from wondering
     G                         F - C
Just who I am, who I am, who I am.
         F - C      F - C     G
Yeah, oh who am I    mmmm   mmmmm


[Hook]

F             C               F         C
Some nights I wish that this all would end
        F               C               G
'Cause I could use some friends for a change.
     F           C                F         C
And some nights I'm scared you'll forget me again.
      F                C     G
Some nights, I always win (I always win)
       F     C              F          C
But I still wake up, I still see your ghost.
           F           C           G
Oh Lord, I still don't know what I stand for, oh.
      F    C               F    C
What do I stand for? What do I stand for?
Am                   G
Most nights, I don't know


[Bridge]

F               C
So this is it? I sold my soul for this?
G
Washed my hands of that for this?
I miss my mom and dad for this?
F                             C                       
No. When I see stars, when i see stars, that's all they are.
         G
When I hear songs, they sound like a swan.
         F           C            G
So come on. Oh, come on. Oh, come on. Oh, come on!


[Verse 2]

F                   C
That is it, guys, that is all.
F                   C
Five minutes in and I'm bored again.
F                              C           G
Ten years of this, and I'm not sure if anybody understands.
F                          C
This is not one for the folks back home.
F                          C
I'm sorry to leave, Mom, I had to go.
F                     C             G
Who the fuck wants to die alone all dried up in the desert sun?


[Verse 3]

             F
My heart is breaking for my sister
         C
And the con that she called love.
            G
But when I look into my nephew's eyes,
F
Man, you wouldn't believe
C                                      G
The most amazing things that can come from.
                 F  
Some terrible nights.

C   F   C  F  C  G x4


[Outro]

F                    C                      F              C
The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me
F              C           G
I called you up, but we'd both agree
F            C                F     C
It's for the best you didn't listen
F           C                 G
It's for the best we get our distance.

take it home! F C F C F C G

"Oh Lord, I still don't know what I stand for, oh." The G on this line (and the other choruses)should be a G7.
