Verse 1
C# ,                                            Ab ,
Whoa-o...Ive been banging my head against the wall
                              Bbm ,
Whoa-o...for so long it seems I knocked it down,
        F#
yeah it got knocked down
                                                               C#               
                              Ab
Whoa-o...and the heating bill went through the roof
                                             Bbm ,
Whoa-o...and the wall I knocked down was the proof
                          F#
That my landlord needed to kick me out

Pre-Chorus
        C#                         Ab
I got evicted now Im living on the street
            Bbm                    F#
My spirits lifted...oh wait, that wasnt me
          C#                          Ab
Too many turns have turned out to be wrong
              Bbm           F#
This time I learned that, I knew it all along

Bbm              Ab
When car crashes occur
                    Ebm
Then Ill be what you were
Bbm               Ab
When I see what I should
                    Ebm
When I see that its good (that its good)


Chorus
   C#             Ab
To experience the bittersweet
   F#
To taste defeat
Then brush my teeth
C#             Ab
Experience the bittersweet
    F#
To taste defeat
Then brush my teeth
C#                    Ab
Cause I struggle with forward motion
Bbm              F#
I struggle with forward motion
C#                   Ab             Bbm  F#
We all struggle with forward motion
            C#                         Ab
Cause forward motion is harder than it sounds
      Bbm
Well everytime I gain some ground
       F#
I gotta turn myself around again
C#                 Ab
Its harder than it sounds
     Bbm
Well everytime I gain some ground
         F#
I gotta turn myself around again

F# F F# F

                           Bbm
Whoa-o...and the scar on my head is the proof
                                  F#
That Ill still remember this when I get old

Pre-Chorus
        C#                         Ab
I got evicted now Im living on the street
            Bbm                    F#
My spirits lifted...oh wait, that wasnt me
          C#                          Ab
Too many turns have turned out to be wrong
              Bbm           F#
This time I learned that, I knew it all along

Bbm              Ab
When I grasp the concept
                         Ebm
Then Ill sleep where you slept
Bbm               Ab
When I know I need help
             Ebm
When I allow myself (allow myself)
