Intro:  D  A  Em  G  x2

D AThis is a song with the same four chords
Em GI use most of the time when I've got something on my mind
D AAnd I don't want to squander the moment
Em G Trying to come up with a more complicated way to say what I want to say
D APeople were mean to you
Em Gbut I always thought you were cool
D Aclicking down the concrete hallway
Emwith your spiked heels
Gback in high school.
D A Em G x2
D A It's good to be young but let's not kid ourselves
Em GIt's better to pass on through those years and come out the other side
D AWith our hearts still beating
Em GHaving stared down demons; come back breathing
D APeople were mean to you
Em Gbut I always thought you were cool
D Aclicking down the concrete hallway
Emwith your spiked heels
Gback in high school.
G AYou deserved better than you got
D GSomeone's got to say it sometime because it's true.
Em APeople should have told you you were awesome,
D G ***Instead of taking advantage of you.
D Em A (half beat only for both Em and A)I hope you love your life
Em GLike I love mine.
D A Em I hope the painful memories only flex their power over you
GA little of the time.
D AWe held onto the hope of better days coming
Em GAnd when we did we were right.
D AI hope the people who did you wrong
Em GHave trouble sleeping every night.
D APeople were mean to you
Em Gbut I always thought you were cool
D Aclicking down the concrete hallway
Emwith your spiked heels
Gback in high school.
Outro: D A Em G x2 *** In the video I transcribed this from, he seems to plays A here. However he sings to a G chord and I think it sounds better.
