VERSE 1
G     D                       C
And I said you shouldn't make facts out of opinions
G  D               C
He said that I was right, You're right I knew that I was
G       D           C
And I'd hate to see anybody thank you
G       D               C
But I'd like to see you fail saying thank you though(?)
G   D              C
I'm not sure who I - am
G   D              C
I'm not sure who I - am, but I know who I've been

G     D                   C
And I said you can't make everybody happy
G  D                     C
He said you'd like to at least make yourself happy though
G   D              C
I'm not sure who I   am
G   D              C
I'm not sure who I   am but I know who I've been
