"Who I Am Hates Who I've Been"
By: Relient K

Tabbed by: John McPherson - Baylor U.
           jmcpherson@dublindp.com


The chords used are largely inversions of A2, in which the D and G strings are pressed
down in the second fret.  Then you can slide up to the fourth fret for B2, and don't
bar-just use your forefinger to press second fret A string (bass B) and mute the 
string.  Move your fingers up just like this to hit C#m (you don't have  to hit the B
string to get the minor-it's redundant).
The chord I reference as E is this same setup moved up to the forefinger in the 7th
fret and the others in the 9th, not muting the E-string.  Low E is just normal E in the
first/second fret.

Feel free to add anything to this or to change it, but I think it's pretty darned closen
to the studio recording they did, 'cause I listened to it about 50 times...  God Bless

[Verse 1]

E
  I watched the proverbial sunrise
A2
  coming up over the Pacific and
C#m
  you might think I'm losing my mind,
B2
  but I will shy away from the specifics...

A2                            B2         C#m
  'cause I don't want you to know where I am
          A2                  B2
  'cause then you'll see my heart
          C#m
  in the saddest state it's ever been.
A2                    B2
  This is no place to try and live my life.


[Pre-Chorus]

low E           E             B2             B/D#
  Stop right there. That's exactly where I lost it.

A2          C#m          B2
  See that line. Well I never should have crossed it.

low E           E            B2               B/D#
  Stop right there. Well I never should have said

                 A/G#        A2
  that it's the very moment that

     B2
  I wish that I could take back.


[Chorus]

E                                     B2  C#m
  I'm sorry for the person I became.
                                                   B2  E        
  I'm sorry that it took so long for me to change.
                                                   B2 C#m
  I'm ready to try and never become that way again
                                      A2
  'cause who I am hates who I've been.
        B2                (Intro)
  Who I am hates who I've been.


[Verse 2]

E
  I talk to absolutely no one.
A2
  Couldn't keep to myself enough.
            C#m
  And the things bottled inside have finally begun
       B2
  to create so much pressure that I'll soon blow up.

E
  I heard the reverberating footsteps
A2
  syncing up to the beating of my heart,
C#m                                B2
  and I was positive that unless I got myself together,

  I would watch me fall apart.


[Bridge]

      A2               B2       C#m
  And I can't let that happen again
          A2                 B2
  'cause then you'll see my heart
         C#m
  in the saddest state it's ever been.
 A                    B2
  This is no place to try and live my life.


[Pre-Chorus] (x2)


[Chorus]


C#m     A2                E
  Who I am hates who I've been
                                                B2/C       C#m
  and who I am won't take the second chance you gave me.
         A2                   E 
  Who I am hates who I've been
                        B2
  'cause who I've been only ever made me...


[Outro]

E                                   B2  C#m
  So sorry for the person I became.
                                                  B2 E
  So sorry that it took so long for me to change.
                                                B2  C#m
  I'm ready to try and never become that way again
                                  A2
  'cause who I am hates who I've been.
          B2                  (intro)
  Who I am hates who I've been.

Sorry if it's confusing, but I tried... One more thing I forgot to put down-the whole mmHmm album (pretty much) is drop tuned one half step. This song is no exception, so if you want to key-match the cd recording, just detune your whole guitar 1/2 step down.
