Wearing scars on my arms and in my eyes 
G#m     F#         C#m           E    F# 
Are you friends or enemies in disguise 
G#m  F#        C#m             E     F# 
  So hard when everything just runs against me 
G#m     F#    C#m         E         F#m 
Jealous words turn into a love hate frenzy

G#m          F#           C#m                  E       F# 
It?s time to grab my hat, grab my coat I gotta load my gun 
G#m   F#     C#m            E         F#       G#m

G#m    F#        C#m               E      F#           B

G#m     F#            C#m              E    F# 
Since I was a child I used to dream of many things 
G#m  F#                 C#m                    E   F# 
Superstars are bizarre, kings and their pretty queens 
G#m    F#      C#m            E        F#     G#m 
Now it seems I need a shot, a drink to jog my thoughts 
G#m         F#                    C#m           E      F# 
Why does it happen all the time - is it - is it just because 
 
 
B              F# 
Because no one will understand 
G#m       E        F#           B 
Won?t someone lend me a helping hand 
                       F# 
Oh yeah, won?t someone please take the time to think 
G#m              E                 F#                   G#m 
Your actions and words, they don?t always say what they mean 
 
 
G#m  F#                C#m   E   F# 
     They don?t always say it 
          G#m                    F#    C#m   E   F# 
Why won?t somebody say what they mean, yeah
