{Verse 1}
G
I have to block out thoughts of you so I don’t lose my head
Em
They crawl in like a cockroach leaving babies in my bed
C
Dropping little reels of tape to remind me that I’m alone
Am
Playing movies in my head that make a porno feel like home
G
There’s a burning in my pride, a nervous bleeding in my brain
Em
An ounce of peace is all I want for you; will you never call again?
C
And will you never say that you love me just to put it in my face?
Am
And will you never try to reach me; It is I that wanted space

{Chorus}
G
Hate me today
Em
Hate me tomorrow
C D Em
Hate me for all the things I didn’t do for you
G
Hate me in ways
Em
Yeah ways hard to swallow
C D G
Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you

{Verse 2}
G
I’m sober now for 3 whole months it’s one accomplishment that you helped me with
Em
The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won’t touch again
C
In my sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night
Am
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
G
You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate
Em
You made me compliment myself when it was way too hard to take
C
So I’ll drive so fucking far away that I never cross your mind
Am
And do whatever it takes in your heart to leave me behind

{Chorus}
G
Hate me today
Em
Hate me tomorrow
C D Em
Hate me for all the things I didn’t do for you
G
Hate me in ways
Em
Yeah ways hard to swallow
C D G
Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you

{Bridge}
Am7 D
And with a sad heart I say bye to you and wave
G Em
Kicking shadows on the street for every mistake that I had made
Am7 D
And like a baby boy I never was a man
G Em
Until I saw your blue eyes cry and I held your face in my hand
Am7 D
And then I fell down yelling ‘Make it go away!’
G Em
Just make a smile come back and shine just like it used to be
Am7 D
And then she whispered ‘How can you do this to me?’

{Chorus}
G
Hate me today
Em
Hate me tomorrow
C D Em
Hate me for all the things I didn’t do for you
G
Hate me in ways
Em
Yeah ways hard to swallow
C D G
Hate me so you can finally see what’s good for you
Em
For you
C D
For you
G
For you

    I think it's down, down, down-up-down-up-down

  7. So far, this is the most accurate version I have seen. Most people leave out the Am entirely and go straight to D which doesn't sound right on acoustic. Also I have never seen a tab with the Am7 in it – it's usually just a straight C. Your Am7 makes a huge difference. GREAT JOB, THANKS!

  8. not bad

  9. whats the strumming pattern again? i keep playing this vid back but i cant seem to get it right .. xoxo

  10. kurtis knickrehm

    hey i dont know if this helps any. but ive been sliding the Cmaj. up to the 3rd 4th n 5th fret rather than rooting on the first if that makes sense. in place of the Am and it sounds crispier from over here great vid 2

  11. yeah, that`s really nice, thank you so much)

  12. ThisChick 'sDaBomb

    Thanks this really helped me!

  13. @sentimental93 yeah most of my videos I talk a little too much in the beginning 🙂 but after it's all business! 🙂

  14. Thank you, this was very helpful 🙂 But, this is only my opinion, you talked a little bit too much at the beginning.
