Verse 1:

C                            Em
Don't pretend that you don't know me
        F        C
If you mean to offend me
Then you're doing pretty well
C                             Em
And how convincingly you've shown me
           F                 C
That the love I thought was built to last
    G             C
Is now an empty shell


   F                    C
   Things can only get better
   What's around the corner
   Who can tell?
          F                                  C    Am
   I'll build a little place just north of heaven
   Dm                   G             C
   I'm kinda tired of living south of hell

Verse 2:

C                    Em
Don't assume you can ignore me
      F              C
You'd best bite your lip in case I
Make it after all
C                             Em
And how contemptuously you've shown me
      F         C
That all my aspirations
         G             C
Were so paltry and so small



Some mother's talking 'bout Guns'n'Roses
As if I give a fuck

At best I think they suck
F                            C
I'm too preoccupied with my memories
Not nonentities


    Dm              G               C  Em Am
I'm kinda tired of living south of hell
    Dm              G
I'm kinda tired of living...  C Em Am G F
