Chorus: C F C Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck. C G Some nights I call it a draw. C F C Some nights I wish that my lips could build a castle. F C G Some nights I wish they'd just fall off F C F C But I still wake up, I still see your ghost. F C G Oh Lord, I'm still not sure what I stand for, oh. F C F C What do I stand for? What do I stand for? F G C F C F C G Most nights, I don't know anymore Verse: C This is it, boys. This is war. F C What are we waiting for? F C G Why don't we break the rules already? C I was never one to believe the hype. F C Save that for the black and white. F C I try twice as hard and I'm half as liked, G But here they come again to jack my style C And that's alright F C I found a martyr in my bed tonight. F C She stops my bones from wondering G Just who I am, who I am, who I am. C F C F G Yeah, oh who am I mmmm mmmmm Chorus - same pattern as first -: Well, some nights, I wish that this all would end Cause I could use some friends for a change And some nights, I'm scared you'll forget me again Some nights, I always win, I always win...

Outro - same pattern as before -: The other night, you wouldn't believe the dream I just had about you and me I called you up, but we'd both agree It's for the best you didn't listen It's for the best we get our distance.
