[Intro]
G  D  C  G  2x


[Verse]
                  G
I took a pill in Ibiza
        D
To show Avicii I was cool
           C
And when I finally got sober, felt 10 years older
    G
But fuck it, it was something to do


[Verse]
                  G
I'm living out in LA
           D
I drive a sports car just to prove
      C
I'm a real big baller cause I made a million dollar
       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
                      C
You don't ever wanna step off
                                G
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
                    C
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing

Stuck up on that stage singing
G     D            C          G
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
         G     D            C          G
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs


[Verse]
           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
                      C
You don't ever wanna step off
                                G
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
                    C
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing

Stuck up on that stage singing
G     D            C          G
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
         G     D            C          G
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs


[Solo]
G  D  C  C


[Verse]
                     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

I walked around downtown
           D
I met some fans in 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
                      C
You don't ever wanna step off
                                G
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
                    C
You don't wanna be stuck up on that stage singing

Stuck up on that stage singing
G     D            C          G
All I know are sad songs, sad songs
         G     D            C          G~
Darling, all I know are sad songs, sad songs
