Starting Over

  		
Intro 
Am G C F 
Am G C 
        1,2, now 

Part 1 
      Am                      G 
Those three-plus years, I was so proud of 
       C                           F 
Then I threw them all away for two Styrofoam cups 
    Am                   G 
The irony, everyone will think that "He lied to me" 
           C 
Made my sobriety so public, there's no fucking privacy 
   Am                           G 
If I don't talk about it then I carry a date 
    C             F 
A "08/10/08" that now has been changed 
         Am                      G 
And everyone that put me in some box as a saint 
             C 
That I never was, just a false prophet that never came 
              Am                              G 
And will they think that everything that I've written has all been fake? 
          C                        F 
Or will I just take my slip to the grave? 
Am                     G 
What the fuck are my parents gonna say? 
       C 
The success story that got his life together and changed 
        Am                    G 
And you know, what pain looks like 
                           C                          F 
When you tell your dad you relapsed and look at him directly into his face 
Am                          G 
Deceit on your shoulders, deceivingly heavy weight 
        C 
Haven't seen tears like this on my girl in a while 
    Am                                 G 
The trust that I once built has been betrayed 
               C                             F 
But I'd rather live telling the truth and be judged for my mistakes 
     Am                     G 
Than falsely held up, given props, loved and praised 
       C 
I guess, I gotta get this on the page 
      Am                  G 
Feeling sick and helpless, lost the compass where self is 
C                         F 
I know what I've gotta do, and I can't help it 
Am             G 
One day at a time is what they tell us 
C 
Now I've gotta find a way to tell them 
Am G C             F 
      God help 'em, yeah 
Am             G 
One day at a time is what they tell us 
C 
Now I've gotta find a way to tell them

Am G We fall, so hard, C F Am G C now we gotta get back what we lost, lost Am G I thought you’d gone, C F Am G C but you were with me all along, along

Part 2 Am G And every kid that came up to me C F And said I was the music they listened to when they first got clean Am G Now look at me, a couple days sober, I'm fighting demons C Back of that meeting on the East Side, shaking, tweaking Am G Hope that they don't see it, hope that no one is looking C F That no one recognizes that failure under that hoodie Am G Just posted in the back with my hands crossed, shooken C If they call on me I'm passin', if they talk to me I'm booking Am G Out that door, but before, I can make it C Somebody stops me and says "Are you Macklemore? F Am G Maybe this isn't the place or time, I just wanted to say that C If it wasn't for 'Otherside,' I wouldn't have made it" Am G I just looked down at the ground and say, "Thank you" C F She tells me she has nine months, and that she's so grateful Am G Tears in her eyes, looking like she's gonna cry, fuck C I barely got forty-eight hours, treated like I'm some wise monk Am G I want to tell her I relapsed, but I can't C F I just shake her hand and tell her, "Congrats" Am G Get back to my car, and I think I'm tripping, yeah C Cause God wrote "Otherside," that pen was in my hand Am G I'm just a flawed man, man, I fucked up C F Like so many others, I just never thought I would Am G I never thought I would, didn't pick up the book C Doin' it by myself didn't turn out that good Bridge Am G If I can be an example of getting sober C F Then I can be an example of starting over Am G If I can be an example of getting sober C Then I can be an example of starting over
