capo 2

D  D/c# Bm7 D/a Csus2 G   2x

D         D/c#    Bm7   D/a     Csus2  G
You don't know so don't say you do you don't 
You might think that things will change but take my words, they won't
    Em                         C    Em   C    
You paint a lovely picture but reality intrudes
       F   C       G
With a message for you 
And it's real bad news

F  C  G

D     D/c# Bm7 D/a   Csus2  G
I was undecided like you at first
But I could not stem the tide of overwhelm, at thirst
    Em                         C       Em  C    
You try to keep it going but a lot of avenues
            F  C    G
Just aren't open to you
When you're real bad news

F  C  G

      Em                  C         G
I got love and anger that come as a pair
You can take your chances but buyer beware
      F     C             G
And I won't make you feel better 
       F             C           G
When I show you this big ball of sad 
       D         Am           F
Isn't worth even filling with air

D  D/c# Bm7 D/a Csus2 G   
Dah dah dah bah dah dah dah dah dah dah dah 2x

Em                                   C        Em         C
Baby let me tell me tell you you can get some things confused
           F C         G
Like whose secrets are whose
And that's real bad news
Real bad news
Real bad news
