[VERSE ONE]
G                                                  Bm
Here I go again, put me on the first train heading eastbound.
                             C                                       Cm
And if by June I'm still alive, I promise not to tell my dad I'm miserable
      D
but thanks for all his sacrifice.
G                     
Cause I'm ashamed of the things that I did,
           Bm
I said whatever it took just to get her in bed and
C 
It's kinda fun when you're only a kid
        Cm                                  D
but you grow up to learn that the scars you cut are permanent

[BRIDGE 1]
C                 D                        Em
But I haven't had one drink in three whole years.
                    G
There's no need for drinking when you're not here.
C               D                    Em
Do you find it amusing I'm seeing clear?
             G
in this haze of hateful atmosphere.

C                    D                 Em
So come on we're not fooling anybody tonight
                            G        
We're the king and queen of social suicide.
C                                                        Cm         -D 
And things are better now knowing that we've never found anyone else.

[CHORUS]
           G                               D/G
So take me out, cause I'm a mess when I'm alone.
                  Bm                                  
and if anyone can help, I think I'm losing it
  C                      D    
I grab and hold on tightly but i start to slip.
G                                        
I've got a problem with my self control, (Hold on)
Em
I fall in love when I'm with any girl. (Honest)
C                                          Cm
They got it wrong saying love is blind it's fine,
                    D
It's just disguised as sex tonight.

[BRIDGE]
C D 
Em           G         C D Em G 
And it's too hard to deny.

[VERSE TWO]
                     C
Cause she's got that dress on,
                 D                         Em                  
you know the one that shows off the things that she can do to me.
G               C                     D
And I'm taking lessons how not to beg for sex
            Em                G
it's just a side effect we're feeling from the ectasy.

C                                 D                    
So come on we're not getting any younger tonight.
Em                           G                                   
Your the gracious host and I'm the parasite.
C                      D
It's the simple act of growing old
              Em             
mixed in with chemicals
              D                 C
and we're the end results, slow down...
                             D
Cause I can tell when you're aroused, (like now...)

[CHORUS]

[BRIDGE 2]
C D Em 
                    C   D
And as long as I'm alive
            Em
I'll try to mend this broken future (we call life)

C          D              Em
I'm feeling better all the time
Em                       
(Pretend you care for me tonight)
C           D                 Em         
It's safe to say that I'll be fine, this time

[BUILD UP]
           G                             D/G
So take me out, cause I'm a mess when I'm alone.
                   Bm     
And if anyone can help, I'm losing it
   C               D        
So this one goes out,

           G            
to all you lovestruck fools
         D/G                     Bm              C       D
I've got news for you, I know a thing or two on giving up.
            G                            D/G                        Bm
To all you heartless souls i think it's best you know i play the leading 
        C       D
role on giving up 

           G      
To all you lovestruck fools,
          D/G                      Bm             C      D
we've got news for you,We know a thing or two on giving up.
           G                             D/G                        Bm
To all you heartless souls we think it's best you know we play the leading 
        C       D
role on giving up.

hey some of the chords are wrong...
the bridges were all right but the rest should go:

[Verse, Chorus & Outro]
G D/F# Em C D
(the strumming varies between each parts but the chords stay the same)
