Bm            Asus4                  G 
You with your words like knives and swords and weapons that you use against me 
Bm        Asus4              G 
You, have knocked me off my feet again. Got me feelin' like a nothing 
Bm             Asus4                  G 
You, with your voice like nails on a chalk board callin' me out when I'm wounded 
Bm   Asus4                  G 
You, pickin' on the weaker man 


Asus4                 D                  G      Asus4 
Well you can take me down with just one single blow 
    G 
but you don't know, what you don't know 


D       A       Bm                  G        D          A                G 
Someday I'll be livin' in a big ol' city and all you're ever gonna be is mean 
D       A       Bm                      G 
Someday I'll be big enough so you can't hit me. 
    D          A                G                          D 
And all you're ever gonna be is mean.. Why you gotta be so mean? 


Break: C D 


Bm             Asus4                      G 
You, with your swithching sides and your wild fire lies and your humiliation 
Bm        Asus4           G                    G 
You, have pointed out my flaws again. As if I don't already see them 
Bm          Asus4                    G 
I walk with my head down. Trying to block you out 'Cause I never impress you 
Bm     Asus4       G 
I just wanna feel okay again 


Asus4                         D            G            Asus4 
I bet you got pushed around. Somebody.... made you.... cold 
                                    G 
But the cycle ends right now 'cause you can't lead me down that road 
    G                   G 
and you don't know what you don't know 


D       A       Bm                  G        D          A                G

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

And I can see you years from now in a bar. Talking over a football game 
     Asus4                            D           G 
With that same big loud opinion, but nobody's is listening 
Asus4                            Bm       Asus4   G 
Washed up and ranting about the same old bitter things 
Asus4                             Bm Asus4 G 
Drunk and grumbling on about how I can't sing 
                  D Asus4 Bm  G 
But all you are is mean 
               D Asus4 Bm             G                 D 
All you are is mean              and alone in life and mean, 
    Asus4     Bm       G 
and mean and mean and mean
