   * last note is picked as the string bends to steadily increase pitch
  


Repeat Pre Chorus, with Lyrics:
"She never, admitted,
she never could sing
i bet she always, remembered
She's wasting all her time"



Repeat Chorus several times to end. Mike Turner comes in with a random part where he
plays around the 10th fret high Eb string with random bends and picking and sliding. 
There is no real pattern to it, so I suggest to just wing it or make something better up.

Last Chord:
