Verse 1

Dmin         C                    F
I'm not very good at just paying attention
Dmin                 C                           F
I'm not very good at remembering things that you say
Dmin         C                F
I'm not very good at persuing redemption
Dmin                 C                          F    A
I'm not very good at concealing the hand that I play

Chorus

Dmin     C     F          A     Dmin
It's the way I am, you'll never change
C         F      A    Dmin
The way I am, or re arrange
C         F         A    Dmin
The way I am, just let me be
C         F            A    Dmin
The way I am, it's the way I am

Dmin         C                    F

Bridge  (all power chords - same pattern repeated)

G                         A
I'm not very good at just paying attention
A#/Bb
I'm not very good at remembering things
G                        A
I'm not very good at pursuing redemption
A#/Bb                                           G
I'm not very good at concealing the hand that I play

When I'm trying so hard just to beat you
I'm not really good at controlling my fate
I'm not really good at controlling my anger
I'm not really good at subduing my hate
I'm not really good [x3]
