[A]Ever since I was a [Amaj7]kid at school
[A7]I messed around with [D]all the rules
[Dm]Apologized then r[A]ealized I'm not d[E]ifferent after [A]all
Me & the boys thought we [Amaj7]had it sussed [A7]Valentinos [D]all of us
[Dm]My dad said we looked re[A]diculous but [E]boy we broke some h[A]earts
In and out of jobs r[Amaj7]unnin free [A7]wagin war with so[D]ciety
[Dm]Some blank faces stare b[A]ack at me & n[E]othin ever ch[A]anged
Promises made in the [Amaj7]heat of the night [A7]creepin home before it [D]got too light
[Dm]I wasted all that pr[A]ecious time and bl[E]amed it on the w[A]ine
Cho...[A]I was only [D]jo-[E]king  my d[A]ear (my dear)
      Looking for a [D]way to [E]hide my f[A]ear (my fear)
      What kind of [D]fo-[E]ol was [A]I (was I)
      I could n[E]ever win (never win)      ......Riff
[A]Never found a c[Amaj7]omprimise [A7]collected lovers like [D]butterflies
[Dm]Illusions of that g[A]rand first prize[E] are slowly w[A]asted
Suzie baby you were [Amaj7]good to me [A7]givin' love uns[D]elfishly
[Dm]But you took it all too s[A]eriously
[E]I guess it had to [A]end
Now you ask me if [Amaj7]I'm sincere [A7]that's the question that I [D]always fear
[Dm]The first seven is n[A]ever clear but I'll [E]tell you what you wanna [A]hear
I'll try to give you [Amaj7]all you want [A7]but givin' love is not my st[D]rongest point
[Dm]If that's the case it's pointless [A]goin' on [E]I'd rather be al[A]one
'Cause what I'm doin [Amaj7]must be wrong [A7]pourin' my heart out [D]in a song
[Dm]Owning up for prosp[A]erity for the wh[E]ole damn world to s[A]ee
Quietly now while I [Amaj7]turn a page [A7]Act 20's over without c[D]ostume change
The [Dm]principal would like to l[A]eave the stage
The c[E]rowd don't underst[A]and
