[Intro]



[Verse 1] 
                 G
I took a pill in Ibiza 
          D
To show Avicii I was cool 
           Cadd9
And when I finally got sober, I felt 10 years older 
     G
But fuck it, it was something to do 
                  G
I'm living out in LA 
          D
I drive a sports car just to prove 
      Cadd9
I'm a real big baller 'cause I made a million dollars 
      G
And I spend it on girls and shoes
 


[Chorus] 
                       Em
But you don't wanna be high like me 
                     D
Never really knowing why like me 
                     Cadd9                                       G
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone 
                         Em
You don't wanna ride the bus like this 
                     D
Never knowing who to trust like this 
                   Cadd9
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing 
C
Stuck up on that stage singing 
Em    D            Cadd9          G
All I know are sad songs, sad songs 
Em    D            Cadd9
All I know are sad songs
 


[Verse 2] 
           G            D
I'm just a singer who already blew his shot 
      C
I get along with old timers 
                                 G
'Cause my name's a reminder of a pop song people forgot 
                  G
And I can't keep a girl, no 
          D
'Cause as soon as the sun comes up 
  C
I cut 'em all loose and work's my excuse 
        G
But the truth is I can't open up
 


[Chorus] 
                       Em
But you don't wanna be high like me 
                     D
Never really knowing why like me 
                     Cadd9                                       G
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone 
                         Em
You don't wanna ride the bus like this 
                     D
Never knowing who to trust like this 
                   Cadd9
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing 
C
Stuck up on that stage singing 
Em    D            Cadd9          G
All I know are sad songs, sad songs 
Em    D            Cadd9
All I know are sad songs
 


[Break] 
G   D   Cadd9   Cadd9


[Verse 3] 
                     G
I took a plane to my home town 
             D
I brought my pride and my guitar 
       C
All my friends are all gone but there's manicured lawns 
        G
And the people still think I'm a star 
           G
I walked around downtown 
           D
I met some fans on Lafayette 
          C
They said tell us how to make it 'cause we're getting real impatient 
     G
So I looked 'em in the eye and said
 


[Chorus] 
                       Em
But you don't wanna be high like me 
                     D
Never really knowing why like me 
                     Cadd9                                       G
You don't ever wanna step off that roller coaster and be all alone 
                         Em
You don't wanna ride the bus like this 
                     D
Never knowing who to trust like this 
                   Cadd9
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing 
C
Stuck up on that stage singing 
Em    D            Cadd9          G
All I know are sad songs, sad songs 
Em    D            Cadd9
All I know are sad songs
