There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I recently started listening to a lot of Cee-Lo Green's music, and this song is
ne of my favorites.  I was happy to discover that the song was quite simple to
learn by ear.  The only chord I had trouble figuring out was the Bb (the recording
sounds like a variation other than major or minor, but I can't quite pin it down),
but a barre chord works just fine.

I hope this tab works for you!



(On the D, mute the high E string throughout)

It's cool being the only one - but it's lonely
             Bb
I could have fallen in love a thousand times before if only someone, had known me
                 Am
They say there's someone for everyone

Oh plus the work will be never done
             Bb
When all you need is to be met halfway but nobody tries

Chorus

                    Am  C
Don't be surprised
            D   Am  Am
Don't be surprised

Am  C

Verse

          Am
There are hills and mountains between us, always something to get over
Bb
Needless to say it's a wonderful day, I just noticed how nice it was to know ya
          Am
Oh but be ready to sacrifice, and if you love him you should tell him twice
             Bb
Because when everything that's alive ultimately dies, oh Lord

Chorus

Verse

Am
Somebody's watching, maybe you want them to see you
              Bb
But with your regrets and secrets you don't really want them to be you
             Am
Well you can make believe I'm blind

And for now I'll be just fine
             Bb
But when the child grows up to have more than just your eyes

Chorus

Verse

        Am
Now the ending to every story is most enchanting
                  Bb
Now, whether it's heaven or hell

I wear it well, please forgive me for rambling
Am
I just wanted y'all to know that I don't know it all
             Bb
So when that big ol' smile ends up, being a disguise

Chorus (repeated several times)

Outro: Am  C  D  Am  Am
