[Intro]
                         D
I was busy thinking bout...

[Verse 1]
     F#m                        Bm
What everybody thinks about me.....
    A                           G
Why I laugh when it isn’t funny...
    Em                         G   A
And why I’m even at this party now hmm
D      F#m                            Bm
..Step out and say a friend is coming....
    A                               G
I’m walking to my car and wondering...
    Em                            G  A  D
Why I’m alone but still prefer an empty house

[Chorus]
            G
I wish that I could just turn off these thoughts
    D
And let myself out
F#m           G                         D
..Why does it seem so easy for everyone else?
    F#m
Hmm.....
           G                             D                   F#m       Em
And I’m so tired of re-enacting things I just could have said out loud....
    A
But I was busy thinking bout

[Verse 2]
D    F#m
..If anybody else is leaving
Bm     D                               G
..This bathroom’s got a dirty ceiling (oh-oh)
   Em                          G    A   Bm
Am I the only one that feeling this way now
    A                      G
Why everybody’s smiling at me
    F#                      Em
And why it doesn’t make me happy
    Bm                         G       A  D
And what excuse I’m gonna give to turn a..round

[Chorus]
            G
I wish that I could just turn off these thoughts
    D
And let myself out
F#m           G                         D
..Why does it seem so easy for everyone else?
    F#m
Hmm.....
           G                             D                   F#m       Em
And I’m so tired of re-enacting things I just could have said out loud....
    A                        G
But I was busy thinking bout...

    D          F#m           G
But I was busy thinking bout...
    D                        G
But I was busy thinking bout...
    D          F#m           Em
But I was busy thinking bout....

[Verse 3]
D                                    Bm
..Get home and go sit in the kitchen....
    D                                  G
I’m turning off the lights and wishing...
                                            A
I would have stayed you know I hate this empty house
