[Verse 1]
    G   
I remember the sickness was forever
     Fadd9
I remember snuff videos
         G  
Cold Septembers, the distances we covered
                       Fadd9
The fist fights on the beach

The Bizzies round us up
                      G 
Do it all again next week

An embryonic love
                        Fadd9
The first time that it scarred
Embarrass yourself for someone
                G 
Crying like a child
       
And the boy who kicked Tom's head in
             Fadd9
Still bugs me now

That's the thing, it lingers
                            G   Fadd9
And claws you when you're down........

[Verse 2]
G
..I was far too scar?d to hit him
                                  Fadd9
But I would hit him in a heartbeat now
                                                 G 
That's the thing with ang?r, it begs to stick around

So it can fleece you of your beauty
                                 Fadd9
And leave you spent with nowt to offer

Makes you hurt the ones who love you

[Chorus]
                            G                  Fadd9
You hurt them like they're nothin' (Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
                            G                  Fadd9
You hurt them like they're nothin' (Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)

[Verse 3]
G                          Am                   Fadd9               
..See, I spent my teens enraged, spirallin' in silence
                         
And I armed myself with a grin
                                 G 
'Cause I was always the ******' joker
                 Am                               Fadd9
Buried in their humour amongst the white noise and boys' boys
                  
Locker room talkin' lads' lads
                              G 
Drenched in cheap drink and snide ****
                         Am
A mirrored picture of my old man
                       Fadd9
Oh God, the kid's a dab hand

Canny chanter, but he looks sad

[Chorus]
                       G             Fadd9
God, the kid looks so sad (Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
                      G                  Fadd9 
Oh God, the kid looks so sad (Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)

[Bridge]
              G   
She said the debt, the debt, the debt

So I thought about shifting gear
           Fadd9 
And how she wept and wept and wept

Luck came and died 'round here
          G                    
I see my mother, the DWP see a number
                         Fadd9
She cries on the floor encumbered

[Chorus]
                 
I'm seventeen goin' under
                     G                Fadd9
I'm seventeen goin' under (Oh-ooh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh)
              G         
(Oh ooh oh oh oh, oh-oh-oh)
            Fadd9
(Oh ooh oh oh oh, oh-oh-oh)

[Outro]
G   Am   Fadd9

G   Am   Fadd9
