Capo: 1st fret

[Intro]
Dm   G    Cmaj7    Am
Dm   G    Cmaj7    Am
 
[Verse 1]
                         Dm    G                            Cmaj7      Am
I'm at the bottom of the list,   I'm not the type to take a risk.
                         Dm          G                       Cmaj7        Am
You see my name and ask: who's this,   perfect example of it is what it is.
                  Dm          G                       Cmaj7      Am
My only goal's to do no wrong   whichever is I'll go along.
                    Dm          G                              Cmaj7      Am
Bury my thoughts in on my songs   'cause my music is where I belong.
 
[Pre-Chorus 1]
    Dm                     G
And if we meet eyes, look away and pass by,
    Cmaj7                           Am
I'm not worth the time, go with the flow.
            Dm                     G
'Cause I'll make sure that I don't stand out,
            Cmaj7                            Am
'cause I'm afraid to go and break the status   quo.
 
[Chorus]
        Dm          G             Cmaj7                    Am
I'm mediocre, I'm a bore, I'm the first knight to die in a war.
       Dm                 G              Cmaj7                  Am
A side character, nothing more, if not extraordinary, what am I here for?
 
[Verse 2]
                            Dm    G                         Cmaj7      Am
You on your worst day is my best,   I look at you and I'm depressed.
                        Dm              G          Cmaj7         Am
Stuck in the cycle of a medieval quest,   nah, I'm really just a mess.
 
[Pre-Chorus 2]
        Dm                     G
Yeah, I make sure that I don't stand out
            Cmaj7                            Am
'cause I'm afraid to go and break the status   quo.
                 Dm                    G
'Cause when I'll choose to try to word out all my rhymes,
  Cmaj7                                  Am
I still don't get the lead for the whole   show.
    N.C.
Ay, hehe, sorry
 
[Chorus]
        Dm          G             Cmaj7                    Am
I'm mediocre, I'm a bore, I'm the first knight to die in a war.
       Dm                 G              Cmaj7                  Am
A side character, nothing more, if not extraordinary, what am I here for?
        Dm          G             Cmaj7                    Am
I'm mediocre, I'm a bore, I'm the first knight to die in a war.
       Dm                 G              Cmaj7                  Am
A side character, nothing more, if not extraordinary, what am I here for?
 
[Verse 3]
   Dm                     G                  Cmaj7                    Am
If this were a movie then I'd understudy the fifth extra crossing the street.
     Dm                        G                       Cmaj7                     Am
Wish I were the main girl, the center of your world, a wish is a dream that can't be.
 
[Outro]
                   Dm                     G
I'm sorry that I'm me, I'm sorry that I'm me,
                   Cmaj7                   Am
I'm sorry that I'm positively negative and weak.
                       Dm                     G
But I'm happy that I'm me, I'm glad that I am me,
                     Cmaj7                               Am
I'd rather be the supporting role. Who's pretty cute and meek?

                  I'm at the bottom of the list
I'm not the type to take a risk
You see my name and ask, "who's this?"
Perfect example of it is what it is

My only goal's to do no wrong
Whichever is I'll go along
Bury my thoughts in all my songs ('cause)
My music is where I belong

And if we meet eyes
Look away and pass by
I'm not worth the time, go with the flow

Cus I make sure that I
Don't stand out cus I'm
Afraid to go and break the status quo

I'm mediocre, I'm a bore
I'm the first knight to die in a war
A side character, nothing more
If not extraordinary, what am I here for?

You on your worst day is my best
A look at you and I'm depressed
Stuck in a cycle of a medieval quest
Nah, I'm really just a mess

Yeah I make sure that I
Don't stand out cus I'm
Afraid to go and break the status quo

Cus when I'll choose to try
To word out all my rhymes
I still won't get the lead for the whole show

Ay, hehe, sorry

I'm mediocre, I'm a bore
I'm the first knight to die in a war
A side character, nothing more
If not extraordinary, what am I here for?

I'm mediocre, I'm a bore
I'm the first knight to die in a war
A side character, nothing more
I'm not extraordinary, what am I here for

If this were a movie
Then I'd understudy
The fifth extra crossing the street

Wish I were the main the girl
The center of your world
A wish is a dream that can't be

I'm sorry that I'm me
I'm sorry that I'm me
I'm sorry that I'm positively negative and weak

But I'm happy that I'm me
I'm glad that I am me
I'd rather be the supporting role who's pretty cute and meek
