Capo
novice
2nd fret
This is the guitar chords to play along with the CD. They are easy chords to play and I
you enjoy playing it as much as I do. This is meant for acoustic but I'm sure with a
bit of tweaking it can be played on electric.

Capo 2nd fret

[Intro]
Slow intro: (strum once on each) 
D,A,D(hammer on 4th finger),G,A. Fast
(continuous strumming) It's the same just contious strumming. The chords changes can be
bit fast at first (and confusing. it's four beats between each change except between the 
and G, then its like 2) but once you get
they're easy.

[Verse 1]

D
 Hey dad look at me
A
 Think back and talk to me
      Em                   G
Did I grow up according to plan?
            D                        A
And do you think I'm wasting my time doing things I wanna do?
       Em                            G
But it hurts when you disapprove all along


[Pre-Chorus 1]

        Em
And now I try hard to make it
G                       D
I just want to make you    proud
    Em                             G
I'm never gonna be good enough for you

I can't pretend that
     A
I'm alright
    G
And you can't change me


[Chorus]
(slow strum or picking)

        D
'Cuz we lost it all
        A
Nothing lasts forever
     Em
I'm sorry
  Em       G
I can't be perfect
          D
Now it's just too late and
   A
We can't go back
    Em
I'm sorry
   Em       G
I can't be perfect

(Fast intro only go through chords once instead of twice)

D
I try not to think
A
 About the pain I feel inside
        Em                     G
Did you know you used to be my hero?
        D
All the days you spent with me
A
 Now seem so far away
       Em                       G
And it feels like you don't care anymore


        Em
And now I try hard to make it
G                       D
I just want to make you    proud
    Em                             G
I'm never gonna be good enough for you
                      A
I can't stand another fight
    G
And nothing's alright

[Chorus]

[Bridge]

D                          A
Nothing's gonna change the things that you said*
Em                       G
Nothing's gonna make this right again**
D
Please don't turn your back
  A
I can't believe it's hard
        Em
Just to talk to you
              G
But you don't understand   (strum once with G and let it ring)

::Slow intro. Second time through the chords, build to chorus::

::Chorus 2x::

(On the last line strum once on G ['perfect'] and let it ring to end the song nicely)


*(mute with your left hand and strum for four beats(6 up and down strums.
going back to forming the next chord on 7 and 8.) if you like but on acoustic it sounds better
without)

**(same as above)

It's very good from my point of view. The intro is a bit weird, but I'm an amateur player and maybe that's why I think it's weird, but when I played the whole song, I thought it was pretty good.
