And that's the way it seems to go for me

(Fill-in 1)*4
(Fill-in 2)
(Same as first verse)
I go to bed at 8 and wake up at 4.30
Most day I drink like a fish and tend to be too flirty
I am a perfectionist but only when things get dirty
I cannot stand small talk but I'm great at being wordy

(Same as first bridge)
And I'd rather leave you first but then I'll be begging you to come back
And when I get real quiet you know I'm about to attack

(Same as first chorus)
I'll take a walk in the rain or a drive in the dark (but only when everyone's celebrating)
I'll dig in to your pain and tear it apart (but only to help the heart that's breaking)
I like to figure things out and make everything right (but I'm secretly thrilled
when everything's changing)
And that's the way it seems to go for me

A chord diagramBb5Bb5
If you fall for the part that's brooding and dark
A chord diagramA5A5
You will never discover the rest of my heart
A chord diagramG5G5
And I want you to see that there's so much to see
A chord diagramG5G5
Just before I declare you never knew me

(Fill-in 1)
(Same as first verse)
He's with the small stuff like the world around was over
I calm him down and we make breakfast for each other
Our friends all thought we fit so perfectly together
He likes what he can't have and I sure like bad weather

(Same as first bridge)
I may have left him first
But I think he'd been leaving for sometime
I feel like begging him to come back
But I can't make up my mind

(Same as first chorus)
I'll take a boxing match over the quiet night (but only to make for better dreams)
I'll back the underdog in any fight (but only to fight for something worth keeping)
I'm in it to win it, most of the time (and if it goes down I'll be kicking and screaming)
And that's the way it seems to go for me
Yeah, and that's the way it seems to go for me
Whoa, and that's the way it seems to go for me

THE END!
