Verse:
D D A A Em Em
You, with your words like knives and swords
G G
And weapons that you use against me
D D A A Em Em
You, have knocked me off my feet again
G G
Got me feelin' like a nothin'

You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board

Callin' me out when I'm wounded

Well you can take me down with just one single blow

Someday I'll be livin in a big ol' city
D D A A G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me
D D A A G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Why you gotta be so mean?


Verse:
D D A A
You, with your swithching sides and
Em Em G G
Your wild fire lies and your humiliation

You, have pointed out my flaws again
G G N.C.
As if I don't already see them
D D A A
I walk with my head down

tryin' to block you out

'cause I never impress you
D D A A Em Em G G
I just wanna feel okay again

A A
I bet you got pushed around

You can't lead me down that road G G
And you don't know what you don't know

Bridge:
A A
And I can't see you years from now in a bar
D D G G A A
Talkin' over a football game
A A
With that same big loud opinion
D D G G A A
But no one's listening
A A
Washed up and ranting about the
D D A A G G
same old bitter things
A A D D A A G G
Drunk and rumblin' all about how I can't sing
N.C. D D A A
But all you are is mean
G G D D A A D D
All you are is mean, and a liar, and pathetic
G G D D A A D D G G
And alone in life and mean, and mean, and mean, and mean

Why you gotta be so.. Someday
A A Em Em G G
I'll be livin in a big ol' city
D D A A G G
And all you're ever gonna be is mean

Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me

And all you're ever gonna be is mean
