Intro:
A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramFF
A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC
        1,2, now

Part 1:
      A chord diagramA minorAm                      A chord diagramG+G
Those three-plus years, I was so proud of
       A chord diagramC majorC                           A chord diagramFF
Then I threw them all away for two Styrofoam cups
    A chord diagramA minorAm                   A chord diagramG+G
The irony, everyone will think that "He lied to me"
           A chord diagramC majorC
Made my sobriety so public, there's no f**king privacy
   A chord diagramA minorAm                           A chord diagramG+G
If I don't talk about it then I carry a date
    A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramFF
A chord diagramA augmentedA "08/10/08" that now has been changed
         A chord diagramA minorAm                      A chord diagramG+G
And everyone that put me in some box as a saint
             A chord diagramC majorC
That I never was, just a false prophet that never came
              A chord diagramA minorAm                              A chord diagramG+G
And will they think that everything that I've written has all been fake?
          A chord diagramC majorC                        A chord diagramFF
Or will I just take my slip to the grave?
A chord diagramA minorAm                     A chord diagramG+G
What the f**k are my parents gonna say?
       A chord diagramC majorC
The success story that got his life together and changed
        A chord diagramA minorAm                    A chord diagramG+G
And you know, what pain looks like
                           A chord diagramC majorC                          A chord diagramFF
When you tell your dad you relapsed and look at him directly into his face
A chord diagramA minorAm                          A chord diagramG+G
Deceit on your shoulders, deceivingly heavy weight
        A chord diagramC majorC
Haven't seen tears like this on my girl in a while
    A chord diagramA minorAm                                 A chord diagramG+G
The trust that I once built has been betrayed
               A chord diagramC majorC                             A chord diagramFF
But I'd rather live telling the truth and be judged for my mistakes
     A chord diagramA minorAm                     A chord diagramG+G
Than falsely held up, given props, loved and praised
       A chord diagramC majorC
I guess, I gotta get this on the page
      A chord diagramA minorAm                  A chord diagramG+G
Feeling sick and helpless, lost the compass where self is
A chord diagramC majorC                         A chord diagramFF
I know what I've gotta do, and I can't help it
A chord diagramA minorAm             A chord diagramG+G
One day at a time is what they tell us
A chord diagramC majorC
Now I've gotta find a way to tell them
A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC             A chord diagramFF
      God help 'em, yeah
A chord diagramA minorAm             A chord diagramG+G
One day at a time is what they tell us
A chord diagramC majorC
Now I've gotta find a way to tell them

Hook:
A chord diagramA minorAm      A chord diagramG+G
We fall, so hard,
A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramFF                A chord diagramA minorAm  A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC
now we gotta get back what we lost, lost
A chord diagramA minorAm       A chord diagramG+G
I thought you’d gone,
A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramFF            A chord diagramA minorAm  A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramC majorC
but you were with me all along, along

Part 2:
A chord diagramA minorAm                 A chord diagramG+G
And every kid that came up to me
         A chord diagramC majorC                                A chord diagramFF
And said I was the music they listened to when they first got clean
            A chord diagramA minorAm                A chord diagramG+G
Now look at me, a couple days sober, I'm fighting demons
A chord diagramC majorC
Back of that meeting on the East Side, shaking, tweaking
A chord diagramA minorAm                              A chord diagramG+G
Hope that they don't see it, hope that no one is looking
     A chord diagramC majorC                          A chord diagramFF
That no one recognizes that failure under that hoodie
     A chord diagramA minorAm                         A chord diagramG+G
Just posted in the back with my hands crossed, shooken
        A chord diagramC majorC
If they call on me I'm passin', if they talk to me I'm booking
         A chord diagramA minorAm                      A chord diagramG+G
Out that door, but before, I can make it
                  A chord diagramC majorC
Somebody stops me and says "Are you Macklemore?
A chord diagramFF                             A chord diagramA minorAm                     A chord diagramG+G
Maybe this isn't the place or time, I just wanted to say that
                  A chord diagramC majorC
If it wasn't for 'Otherside,' I wouldn't have made it"
              A chord diagramA minorAm                           A chord diagramG+G
I just looked down at the ground and say, "Thank you"
                     A chord diagramC majorC                              A chord diagramFF
She tells me she has nine months, and that she's so grateful
             A chord diagramA minorAm                             A chord diagramG+G
Tears in her eyes, looking like she's gonna cry, f**k
             A chord diagramC majorC
I barely got forty-eight hours, treated like I'm some wise monk
A chord diagramA minorAm                     A chord diagramG+G
I want to tell her I relapsed, but I can't
       A chord diagramC majorC                                A chord diagramFF
I just shake her hand and tell her, "Congrats"
               A chord diagramA minorAm                             A chord diagramG+G
Get back to my car, and I think I'm tripping, yeah
                 A chord diagramC majorC
Cause God wrote "Otherside," that pen was in my hand
                  A chord diagramA minorAm                 A chord diagramG+G
I'm just a flawed man, man, I f**ked up
             A chord diagramC majorC                              A chord diagramFF
Like so many others, I just never thought I would
                  A chord diagramA minorAm                        A chord diagramG+G
I never thought I would, didn't pick up the book
              A chord diagramC majorC
Doin' it by myself didn't turn out that good

Bridge:
   A chord diagramA minorAm                     A chord diagramG+G
If I can be an example of getting sober
           A chord diagramC majorC                         A chord diagramFF
Then I can be an example of starting over
   A chord diagramA minorAm                     A chord diagramG+G
If I can be an example of getting sober
           A chord diagramC majorC
Then I can be an example of starting over

Hook:
A chord diagramA minorAm      A chord diagramG+G
We fall, so hard,
A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramFF                A chord diagramA minorAm  A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC
now we gotta get back what we lost, lost
A chord diagramA minorAm       A chord diagramG+G
I thought you’d gone,
A chord diagramC majorC            A chord diagramFF            A chord diagramA minorAm  A chord diagramG+G  A chord diagramC majorC
but you were with me all along, along


Outro:
A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC A chord diagramFF
A chord diagramA minorAm A chord diagramG+G A chord diagramC majorC
