Struggle On

D F#m G
I look at today I think it's tomorrow
D F#m G
I search for happiness I find sorrow
DSus4 D
My instincts stink
I make bad decisions
Dsus4 D A
All my good intentions turn out bad

I talk to the photo like she's (he's) still there
There's other fish in the ocean, my ocean of tears
My love life stinks I make bad relations
All my best connections turn out bad

G Bm D A
Oh the hardest thing is that I'm no further along
G Bm D C6 D C6 (twice more)
But the funny thing is I can struggle on

With all the nicest girls there's no future
To laugh and love to have and hold to nuture
The part that stinks I don't get any better
All my hard earned lessons turn out bad
