repeat this pattern:
Am (hammer on)  Fmaj7 (hammer on)   G    Gsus4


I'm being hopelessly optimistic — you're an honest crook
The poor reputation your love gets should make you look
It gets   pretty ugly,     well it's understood  
I'm second best and that's pretty good 


Am   Fmaj7    G    Gsus4   
Am   Fmaj7    G    Gsus4

         
I need extra time to see
If those plastic glasses are half full or half Ampty
It's a sure bet my life's an organized mess
But I'm second best and that's pretty good


Am   Fmaj7    G    Gsus4   
Am   Fmaj7    G    Gsus4

Am    Am     Fmaj7   G       (one beat each)
      I have drawn   a

Am    Am     Fmaj7   G 
      I've   drawn   a

Am    Am     Fmaj7   G 
      I've   drawn   a

Am    Am     Fmaj7   G

All those years I was getting old

I can't remember though I must have been told

I was your only one a million times
                             Am   Fmaj7    G    Gsus4 
If you told me once it was a lie 


It's after dark , Must be light again
'Twas a near miss , Must have hit 'Am
He took everything all that glittered
He said “now then, we mustn't be bitter” 

It's a little big, but I guess my dream's okay
I can make it if I start today
We're alone together in this relation
Don't feel real, must be a genuine imitation 

I have drawn a
I've drawn a
I've drawn a blank
All those years I was getting old
I can't remember though I must have been told
I was your only one a million times
If you told me once it was a lie 

Fuzzy logic, you say, but who really cares
It's an exact estimation everywhere
I didn't realize but it's no good to be mad
I'm second best and that's pretty bad

Outro:
Am   Fmaj7   G   Gsus4  (6x)
F   F   F   F    C (hold and ring)
