   We've been dying for our nations
G               Em
   Passed on to every generation

Am               F
   No questions, it's an honor

   For the president and the Holy Father

   I carry this weapon for my land

             A        E
   There's a devil in me

   But still I'm drawn to all these stupid games
       D       A           E           F#m
   And I'll be rolling the dice all my life indeed

   Even though the odds are laughing at me

Verse:
   D    E A         E
   Well I hate to admit
         D                E
   But I think I'm losing it
           A              E
   I can't seem to let it go
               D              E
   And now I'm running out of dough

Chorus:
            D            E             A                  F#m
   Everyone else seem to win, and it's eating me from within
       D                  E               A  E
   But still I'm drawn to all these silly games

[INTRO] A-C#m-F#m (3x) D-A-E

     A                                 F#m
   I can’t believe it’s true, that I’m sitting here with you
          D                        E
   On the edge of your bed in your room
           A                              F#m
   And I’m thinking about last night, how everything felt so right
        D                      E
   This girl really likes me a lot


[Pre-Chorus]
       F#m       A        F#m              A   
   She made me a man, now I’m her greatest fan
         D                            E
   And I never ever want to leave her room


{Chorus]
   A                    E
   I found my true love, she’s the one that I want
   F#m                           D
   And nothing matters more than this
   A                    E
   My heart is pounding, my palms are sweating
   F#m                         D
   My brain shuts down when we kiss

   A-C#m-F#m (3x) D-A-E

               A                             F#m
   She took my hand and said let’s go, I was drunk and on a roll
               D                              E
   We left the lights behind and we begun our journey
        A                            F#m
   They tried to break us up, they opposed our luck
       D                            E
   But this love was bound to be forever


[Pre-Chorus]
       F#m       A        F#m              A   
   She made me a man, now I’m her greatest fan
         D                            E
   And I never ever want to leave her room


{Chorus]
   A                    E
   I found my true love, she’s the one that I want
   F#m                           D
   And nothing matters more than this
   A                    E
   My heart is pounding, my palms are sweating
   F#m                         D
   My brain shuts down when we kiss

[Bridge]
   A  E  F#m  D
   A  E  F#m  D

{Chorus]
   A                    E
   I found my true love, she’s the one that I want
   F#m                           D
   And nothing matters more than this
   A                    E
   My heart is pounding, my palms are sweating
   F#m                         D
   My brain shuts down when we kiss

5. ANOTHER SONG ABOUT BEING LONELY (Half-Step Down)


Verse:
 D                   Bm          G                      A
   Looking out of my window, the whole town seems to be sleeping by now 
 D            Bm       G                       A
   And I'm so lonely, another night to make it through somehow
 D            Bm         G                     A
   My mind is dreary, my life is dull and I've got no goal
 D                     Bm        G           A
   No matter where I'm going, or what I do I do it alone

Pre-Chorus:
F#m               G                    D                 Bm           A
   And where am I going when no one is going to share my dreams with me
F#m                G
   And I have been walking…

Chorus:
    D        Bm           G           A                D
   Alone, so many nights alone, and I don't want it no more
   Bm           G    A          D
   Always on my own, always so alone

Verse:
 D           Bm       G                 A
   Without a purpose, disillusioned and led astray
 D         Bm             G                 A
   Wishful dreams are the substitute for my disarray
 D          Bm     G                   A
   I wasn't always walking beneath the clouds and rain
 D                    Bm         G                 A
   But the years have passed and false hope is all that remains

Pre-Chorus:
F#m               G                    D                 Bm           A
   And where am I going when no one is going to share my dreams with me
F#m                G
   And I have been walking…

Chorus:
    D        Bm           G           A                D
   Alone, so many nights alone, and I don't want it no more
   Bm           G    A          D
   Always on my own, always so alone

Verse:
 C                                              Am
   I've walked through flames and I've felt the pain
                                  F
   Dwelled and pondered night and day
                          G
   Retreated back into my womb of sorrows

 C                            Am
   I drank myself to sleep at night
                                 F
   Wrecked the room in a one man fight
                            G
   Cursed myself for loving someone as awful as you

Chorus:
 F           C                   G
   So take a look at what you've done

   There's nothing left of me
 F             C               G
   Nothing but fragments of my heart
 F            C             G

   Depressed and lonely and crucified
                     G
   Memories of yesterday still haunt me

 C                       Am
   The sacrifices I have made
                             F 
   And now I'm feeling so betrayed
                            G
   I hate myself for loving someone as awful as you

 F                                  G
   I accused the world and I blamed God
                                      F
   I fought my demons and life's been hard
                              G             F
   These hateful feelings are burning in my chest
                                          G
   I ripped your pictures and burned your clothes
                                F

      G                            C              D

12. I SURRENDER (Half-Step Down)


Verse:
 
     G           D              C           G
   I wonder what you are really thinking of me
              C             G                   Em              D
   Cause I've taken you for granted, I guess it took a while to see
              G             D           C            G
   Yeah you deserve more, I didn't even kiss you goodnight
           C           G          Em                  D
   Still I love you so much and I want to make things right

Chorus:

                        C          D
   I guess I've let you down, it's true
                    Em          D
   I really want to change, for you
                  C              D
   Tell me what I didn't, didn't do
           C                   D                G    D
   Cause I don't wanna lose, I don't wanna lose you

Verse:
       G       D          C          G
   I'm lazy, obnoxious, annoying and loud
         C             G        Em           D
   I'm a child and I'm way too, way too damn proud
               G              D             C             G 
   Yeah, you deserve more for sure, someone helpful and polite
     C            G             Em              D
   I know I'm not perfect and I want to make it right

Chorus:

                        C          D
   I guess I've let you down, it's true
                    Em          D
   I really want to change, for you
                  C              D
   Tell me what I didn't, didn't do
           C                   D                G    D
   Cause I don't wanna lose, I don't wanna lose you

[ INSERT SOLO HERE ]

Chorus:

                        C          D
   I guess I've let you down, it's true
                    Em          D
   I really want to change, for you
                  C              D
   Tell me what I didn't, didn't do
           C*                  D*               G*    
   Cause I don't wanna lose, I don't wanna lose you
