Verse 1

C#m B F#m E F#m(add9)

I'll fake it through the day with some help


From Johnnie Walker Red

E(2) F#m B A E

Send the poison brain down the drain to put

Bsus9 B

Bad thoughts in my head

C#m B F#m E F#m(add9)

Two tickets torn in half for LA


With nothing to do


E(2) B A(2) E(2) B

Do you miss me, Miss Misery


Like you say you do

Bridge 1

G Bm E G

We met in the park, read the lines in my hand


Told me I'm strong, hardly ever wrong, I said, man you mean

Verse 2

You had plans for both of us that involved

A trip out of town

To a place I seen in a magazine that you

Left lyin' around

I don't have you with me but I keep

A good attitude


Middle Eight


I know you'd rather see me gone, than to see me

C#m A

The way that I am

B Ab

But I am in the life anyway

Verse 3

Next door, TV's flashing blue

Frames on the wall

It's a comedy of errors you see

It's about taking a fall

To vanish into oblivion

It's easy to do

Chorus Chords

And I try to be but you know me

I come back when you want me to


This was a tough song to figure out. There's a little guitar part at the

Bsus9. It goes like this
