 [INTRO]

            E
 Why am I so damn lonely?
    G#          C#m                   A
 Am I the only one who feels this way?
          E 
 Why am I so damn reckless?
  G# 
 I can't shake this
  C#m        A 
 I'm not okay
 
 [VERSE ONE]
               E 
 And they say maybe I should learn a little thing about depression
       G# 
 Like crying to a stranger's gonna help me with progression
     C#m 
 And I don't wanna take it, I don't wanna learn my lesson
  A 
 All I really want is just the love and the affection

      E 
 And they don't understand a single word that I am singing
  G# 
 All they wanna do is put me on some medication
       C#m 
 It's hard for me to open up, it's hard for me to say shit
     A 
 Writing all this music's like my form of meditation
 
 [PRE CHORUS]
      E 
 And ooh, ooh
                          G# 
 They've come to take me away again
                          C#m
 Take control of me and all my friends
                              A 
 I've got this feeling and I can't pretend

           E 
 Why am I so damn lonely?
    G#        C#m                   A 
 Am I the only one who feels this way?
          E     
 Why am I so damn reckless?
 G#                   C#m         A 
 I can't shake this, I'm not okay
           E 
 Why am I so damn lonely?
    G#        C#m                   A 
 Am I the only one who feels this way?
          E     
 Why am I so damn reckless?
 G#                   C#m         A 
 I can't shake this, I'm not okay
 
 [VERSE TWO]
                 E 
 So I thought, what's the point in trying if I cannot find a reason?
      G#
 I'm lying to myself, I got a problem with believin'
     C#m
 Believing in the good, I know my face can be deceiving
         A
 'Cause I've been tryna hide it, I've been falling off the deep end

        E 
 We're posting happy photos like we handle different faces
   G# 
 Ride and take me back to this from when we're on vacation
    C#m 
 It doesn't help me feel this whole loneliness I'm facing
       A
 Like twenty likes a post supposed to be the one salvation
 
 [PRE CHORUS]
      E 
 And ooh, ooh
                          G# 
 They've come to take me away again
                          C#m
 Take control of me and all my friends
                              A 
 I've got this feeling and I can't pretend

          E     
 Why am I so damn reckless?
 G#                   C#m         A 
 I can't shake this, I'm not okay
           E 
 Why am I so damn lonely?
    G#        C#m                   A

 Why am I so damn reckless?
 G#                   C#m         A 
 I can't shake this, I'm not okay, ooh, oh
