A                  Amaj7
Ever since I was a kid at school 
A7                   D 
I messed around with all the rules
Dm               A                E              A      
Apologized then realized I'm not different after all
                         Amaj7         A7         D     
Me & the boys thought we had it sussed Valentinos all of us  
Dm                      A            E                  A
My dad said we looked rediculous but boy we broke some hearts
                    Amaj7      A7               D 
In and out of jobs runnin free wagin war with society
Dm                      A            E            A  
Some blank faces stare back at me & nothin ever changed
                     Amaj7             A7                     D
Promises made in the heat of the night creepin home before it got too light
Dm                  A                 E               A
I wasted all that precious time and blamed it on the wine
  A          D  E         A   
  I was only jo-king  my dear (my dear)
                D      E        A
  Looking for a way to hide my fear (my fear)
               D  E      A   
  What kind of fo-ol was I (was I)
           E
  I could never win (never win) 
Riff                  A

A              Amaj7     A7                    D 
Never found a comprimise collected lovers like butterflies
Dm                 A               E            A
Illusions of that grand first prize are slowly wasted
                    Amaj7      A7             D 
Suzie baby you were good to me givin' love unselfishly
Dm                       A
But you took it all too seriously
E                 A
I guess it had to end
  A          D  E         A   
  I was only jo-king  my dear (my dear)
                D      E        A
  Looking for a way to hide my fear (my fear)
               D  E      A   
  What kind of fo-ol was I (was I)
           E
  I could never win (never win) 
Riff                  A

                  Amaj7       A7                         D
Now you ask me if I'm sincere that's the question that I always fear
Dm                  A                   E                       A 
The first seven is never clear but I'll tell you what you wanna hear
                     Amaj7        A7                          D    
I'll try to give you all you want but givin' love is not my strongest point
Dm                                A        E               A 
If that's the case it's pointless goin' on I'd rather be alone
                     Amaj7         A7                   D 
'Cause what I'm doin must be wrong pourin' my heart out in a song
Dm                 A               E                  A 
Owning up for prosperity for the whole damn world to see
                    Amaj7       A7                     D    
Quietly now while I turn a page Act 20's over without costume change
    Dm                       A 
The principal would like to leave the stage
     E                 A
The crowd don't understand
