Intro: D (root)
D (root)
I try to always be a gentleman
I try to always be a better friend
Lately I?ve been feeling half a man
like maybe I should be more who I am
A (root)
Maybe I should fuck something up good
G (root)
Or maybe I should act like someone bad
D (root)
I try to live my life like David does
But something always feels just slightly off
D (root)
I?m young and maybe that?s why days to me
they seem like opportunities to test my reach
Adopt some ugly habits that are bad for me
and treat some others not so equally
A (root)
If I thought I knew me well it?s clear as can be
G (root)
that things are gonna change like a hundred degrees
D (root)
If I thought I knew me well it?s plain to see
that things are gonna change like a hundred degrees
[D]Don?t tell my mother
Don?t tell my mother
[A]Don?t tell my mother till I pull myself together
[G]It?s undercover
I hope forever
[D]Don?t tell my mother till I pull myself together
[G]I think it?s me
but I just need to see
[A]if this real or just something that I need
[Bm]Don?t tell my mother
Don?t tell my mother
[D]Don?t don't tell my mother till I pull myself together
D (root)
Try to always do what people like
And try to be a man that someone might
look up to in a minute when they?re feeling down
Like maybe I could be somebody that you love
Or [A]maybe I?ll just keep thinking all about me
until I [G]get the proper opportunity that I need
[D]Maybe I?ll just keep thinking all of myself
until I find a way to be in love with somebody else
[A]Maybe I?ll just keep thinking all about me
G (STOP)
until I get the proper opportunity that I need
[D]Don?t tell my mother
Don?t tell my mother
[A]Don?t tell my mother till I pull myself together
[G]It?s undercover
I hope forever
[D]Don?t don't tell my mother till I pull myself together
[G]I think it?s me
but I just need to see
[A]if this real or just something that I need
[Bm]Don?t tell my mother
Don?t tell my mother
[D]Don?t don't tell my mother till I pull myself together
