lyrics

I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE

verse: Gm Bb C Gm (F)
chorus: Bb Dm Gm [D# Bb] F
bridge: C B7 (Em C G G) x?
outro: G G C

you could be another dirty secret
i don't need, but i've got to keep it
why me? am i the only one
make amends & take your friends for granted
they will spend their time on underhanded
schemes & then i'm not the only one

[chorus]
but you won't chance another try
the no i can'ts, the do or die
& you are only happy when you cry
you're bittersweet you only start
we're all six feet above your heart
& you are only happy when you cry
& maybe i'm a lie, but i had to make you happy didn't i?

[bridge]
but you can look down on everyone tall
& when you hit pound you'll find that nobody's called
oh you can look down on everyone tall
& when you hit pound you'll find that nobody's called

break the bank & thank them all as follows
truth the bitter pill that nobody can swallow
& you're empty still, the hollow you've become

[chorus]

[bridge]

[outro]
i'm not the only one...
