[Intro]
Dsus2   F#/D   G   A/D
Dsus2   F#/D   G   A/D
[Verse I]
Dsus2                          F#/D
 I made you laugh, I made you cry
                        G
I made you open up your eyes
A/D
 Didn't I?
Dsus2                         F#/D
 I helped you open out your wings,
                             G
your legs, and many other things
A/D
 Didn't I?

[Pre-Chorus]
   Em                              F#/D
Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
                         G
The only one who let you go?
                    A/D
The one you hurt so much you cannot bear?

[Verse II]
Dsus2                               F#/D
 Well we were good, when we were good
                            G    A/D
When we were not misunderstood
Dsus2                               F#/D
 You helped me love, you helped me live
                          G
You helped me learn how to forgive
A/D
 Didn't you?

Dsus2                         F#/D
 I wish that I could say the same
                           G
But when you left, you left the blame
A/D
 Didn't you?
[Pre-Chorus]
   Em                               F#/D
Am I the greatest bastard that you met?
                          G
The only one you can't forget?
                  A/D
Am I the one your truth's been waiting for?

Dsus2                            F#/D
 Or am I just dreaming once again?
                                 G    A/D
Some dreams are better when they end

[Chorus]
Dsus2         F#/D
 Some make it, mistake it
G               A/D
 Some force and some will fake it
Bm          F#m             G   A/D
 I never meant to let you down
Dsus2         F#/D
 Some fret it, forget it
G              A/D
 Some ruin and some regret it
Bm          F#m             G   A/D
 I never meant to let you down

[Verse III]
Dsus2                          F#/D
 We learn to wag and tuck our tails
                            G
We learn to win and then to fail
A/D
 Didn't we?
Dsus2                           F#/D
 We learn that lovers love to sing
                   G
And that losers love to cling
A/D
 Didn't we?

[Pre-Chorus]
   Em                              F#/D
Am I the greatest bastard that you know?
                               G
When will we learn to let this go?
                         A/D
We fought so much, we've broken all the charm
Dsus2                        F#/D
 But letting go is not the same
                         G    A/D
As pushing someone else away

[Bridge]
   Bm           F#m
So please don't let on

You don't know me
Bm            A/D
 Please don't let on
F#/D     G
 I'm not here
Bm           A/D
Please don't let on
F#/D       G
 You don't love me
      Em     F#/D   G
'Cause I know you do
      A/D
I know

[Chorus]
Dsus2              F#/D
 that Some make it, mistake it
G               A/D
 Some force and some will fake it
Bm          F#m             G   A/D
 I never meant to let you down
Dsus2         F#/D
 Some fret it, forget it
G              A/D
 Some ruin and some regret it
Bm          F#m             G
 I never meant to let you down
           A/D          Em
I never meant to let you
           F#/D             G
I never meant to let you down
        A/D
I never meant
