C (strum from now on)
You know you're better than this.

Verse:
Em                      C
We're a different pair, do something out of step.

Am                  C          (C*)
Throw a stranger an unexpected smile

Em                  C
With big intention, still posted at your station.

Am                         C           (C*)
Always on about the day it should have fled.

Em                        C                    Am
You say too late to start, got your heart in a headlock,

C       (C*)
I don't believe any of it.

Chorus:
Em                        C                    Am
You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,

C               (C*)
You know you're better than this.

Em               C                   Am
Afraid to start, got your heart in a headlock,

C       (C*)
I don't believe any of it.

Em                         C                    Am
You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,

C               (C*)
You know you're better than this.

Verse:
Em                 C
I've been walking, you've been hiding,

Am                 C            (C*)
And you look half dead half the time.

Em              C
Monitoring you, like machines do,

Am                   C                   (C*)
You've still got it, I'm just keeping an eye

Em                 C
I've been walking, you've been hiding,

Am                 C            (C*)
And you look half dead half the time.


Em              C
Monitoring you, like machines do,

Am                            C          (C*)
You've still got it, I'm just keeping an eye

Chorus:
Em                   C            Am
So what, don't care, will not, the end

C               (C*)
You know you're better than this

Em                   C                   Am
I'll make you start, got your heart in a headlock,

C       (C*)
I don't believe any of it.

Em                        C                    Am
You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,

C               (C*)
You know you're better than this.

Em              C                   Am
Afraid to start, got your heart in a headlock,

C       (C*)
I don't believe any of it.

Em                         C                   Am
You say too late to start, with your heart in a headlock,

C               (C*)
You know you're better than this.




Note, you can end the song with whatever chord, for a mysterious, keep it on a C chord,
for more mystery, change to an Am chord, for a finished chord to really close the song,
end in an Em chord. For a very open ending, end in the C* chord listed at the top. Hope 
this helps and good luck with your playing!



Also note, the chord in parenthesis (C*) is an optional chord to be played, though that
is the beat to play it on, work with skipping and adding the chord where you personally
like it best.


If any mistakes, please leave a comment with the error and correction! Thanks and happy playing!
