Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

The Other Me  Paul McCartney

I [D]know I was a crazy [F#m]fool
For [Bm]treating you the way I [Am7]did  [D]
But [G]something took hold of m[B7]e
And I [Em]acted like a dustbin [A7]lid
I [D]didn't give a second [F#m]thought
To [Bm]what the consequence might [Am7]be    [D]
I [G]really wouldn't [B7]be surprised
If [Em]you were trying to [A7]find another [D]me

The [D]other me would rather be the [G]glad one
The [D]other me would rather play the [G]fool
I [D]want to be the kind of me
That [G]doesn't let you [E]down as a [A7]rule

I know it doesn't take a lot
To have a little self-control
But every time that I forgot
Well I landed in another hole

But everytime you pull me out
I find it harder not to see
That we can build a better life
If I can try to find the other me


[G]But if I ever [D]hurt you
Well you [G]know that it's not [D]real
It's not [Bm]easy living [G]by yourself
So i[Em]magine how I [A7]feel

I wish that I could take it back
I'd like to make a different mood
And if you let me try again
I'll have a better attitude

Well I know that one and one makes two
And that's what I want us to be
I really would appreciate it
If you'd help me find the other me
