Mess Chords

   
Pretty easy song... listen to it for the timing. I found it easier to use a capo on the
first fret, but if you want to try without, transpose everything a half step down.

CAPO ON 1 (chords relative to capo - ie: F#m = Gm)
Verse: F#m  B  E  D  A  C# 2x
Chorus: E  D  F#m  E
Bridge: D  Bm  C#  (and ending - end on F#m) 

There was a time when I had nothing to explain
Oh, this mess I have made
But then things got complicated
My innocence has all but faded
Oh, this mess that I have made
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/b/ben_folds_five/mess_crd.html ]
And I don't believe in god
so I can't be saved 
All alone as I've learned to be
In this mess that I have made

All the untested virtue
The things I said I'd never do
Least of all to you
I know he's kind and true
I know that he is good to you
He'll never care for you more than I do

But I don't believe in love
So I can't be changed
All alone as I've learned to be
In this mess
(Bridge)
I have made the same mistakes
Over and over again

There are some rooms in this house that I don't
Open anymore
Dusty books and pictures on the floor
That she will never see
She'll never see that part of me
I want to be for her
What I could never be for you

But I don't believe in god
so I can't be saved 
All alone as I've learned to be
In this mess that I have made
