EmNow I'm in town, break it down Thinking of making a new sound GPlaying a different show every night In front of a new crowd AThat's you now, hello, ciao Seems that life is great now CSee me lose focus, Das I sing to you loud EmI can't, no, I won't Ghush I'll say the words that make you Ablush I'm gonna sing this Cnow D EmSee, I'm true, my songs are where my heart is GI'm like glue, I stick to other artists AI'm not you, now that would be disastrous CLet me sing and do my thing DAnd move to greener pastures EmSee, I'm real, I do it all, it's all me GI'm not fake, don't ever call me lazy AI won't stay put Give me the chance to be free CSuffolk sadly seems to sort of suffocate me
[Chorus] (The chorus has a same pattern of the intro)
EmYou need me, man, I don't need yoGu You need me, man, I don't need youA You need me, man, I don't need youC at all you Dneed me man I dont need you
EmYou need me, man, I don't need yoGu You need me, man, I don't need youA You need me, man, I don't need youC at all you Dneed me man I dont need you
[Verse 2]
EmI sing and write my own tune and I write my own verse, hell GDon't need another wordsmith to make the tune sell? ACall yourself a singer-writer You're just bluffing CYour name's on the credits And you dDidn't write nothing EmI sing fast I know that all my shit's cool GI will blast And I didn't go to Brit School AI came fast with the way I act, right CI can't last, if I'm smoDking on a crack pipe EmI won't be a product of my genre GMy mind will always be stronger than my songs are ANever believe the bullshit that fake guys feed to ya CAlways read the stories that you heDar in Wikipedia EmAnd musically I'm demonstrating GWhen I perform live, feels like I am meditating ATimes at The Enterprise when some fella filmed me CA young singer-writer like GDabriella Cilmi
[Chorus]
EmYou need me, man, I don't need yoGu You need me, man, I don't need youA You need me, man, I don't need youC at all you Dneed me man I dont need you
EmYou need me, man, I don't need yoGu You need me, man, I don't need youA You need me, man, I don't need youC at all you Dneed me man I dont need you
Im just gonna skip all the way to beginning of the instrumental part. (after he sings "My eyes are red") Again, listen to the song to get the timing right. just slide to the next chord while strumming e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| B|---3-----------------------------3------5----8---10-----0-------------------| G|---2-------12~~---12~~-----------2------4----0---0------0-------------------| repeat D|---0-----------------------------0------0----0---0------0-------------------| A|---0-----------------------------0------0----0---0------0-------------------| D|---0---------------------13\-----0h3----5----8---10-----3b------------------| (strum many times) e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------| B|----3------------------------4-------8------10-------0--------------------------| G|----2------------------------5-------0------0--------0--------------------------| D|----0--------------------- --0-------0------0--------0--------------------------| A|----0------------------------0-------0------0--------0--------------------------| D|----0------------------------4-------8------10-------3b-------------------------| he hammers this in some part PM---------------------------------------------| e|---------------------------------------||--------| B|---6-----------------------------------||---5/6--| repeat as needed G|---5-----------------------------------||---5/5--| D|---7-----------------------------------||---5/7--| A|---5-----------------------------------||---3/5--| D|---------------------------------------||--------| (strum this part palm muted) this is where the looping starts PM--------------------------------------------------------------------------| e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------| B|---6-----3/5-------5/---------------------------------------------------------| G|---5-----3/5-------5/---------------------------------------------------------| D|---7-----3/5-------5/---------------------------------------------------------| A|---5-----1/3-------3/---------------------------------------------------------| D|------------------------------------------------------------------------------| (I'm sure you can figure out the drum stuff so I will skip it) e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| G|---2---0h2------------------------------------------------------------------| D|---0---0--------8---10-----0------------------------------------------------| repeat A|---0---0--------8---10-----0------------------------------------------------| D|---0---0--------8---10-----3b-----------------------------------------------| he does this in a tricky way so I'll just tab out on how he pick it. you need to listen very carefully in this part. just practice and you will get the feel of it. e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| G|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| D|-----12--12--x--12--x-12--12--x--12--x--12--x--12-x-12--10--10--------------| repeat A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| e|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| G|-----10--10--x--10--x-10--10--x--10--x--10--x--10-x-10--9----9--------------| D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| D|----------------------------------------------------------------------------| I won't tab where he strums when he loops his voice because he just varies it every time. it's all the same chords anyway, he just plays it differently. this is how he ends the song e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------| B|----6------------------------6\------------------------------------------------| G|----5------------------------5\------------------------------------------------| D|----7------------------------7\------------------------------------------------| A|----5------------------------5\------------------------------------------------| D|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------| (upward strum)
