Verse:

    C
you grew up alone

     E         E/G#
in a big empty house

       Am         Am7/G
with a pool and a maid

        F
mom and dad always out

    C
and i always thought

         E         E/G#
that you had it so good

     Am            Am7/G
just imagine my surprise

          D/F#
when they blew off the roof


Chorus:

    E E/B      Dm      G   F#
and i couldn't be more careless

Am              Am/G      F
you're probably dead, and i'm just embarassed


Verse:

from out of a fire
and into a flame
when you got too skinny
you moved to L.A.
it's just a regular city
dropped from a great heighth
with the millions inside
trapped along for the ride

and i couldn't be more careless
you're probably dead, and i'm just embarassed
i couldn't be more careless
you're probably dead, and i'm just...


Bridge:

      Bb  Bb/F       Bb   Bb/F
embarrased        to be

    E       E7     Am   Am7/G
the one who had it nice

     F   F/C     B   B/F#
with not       a clue

    B         E7
and too much advice

Am   Am7/G   F  E7
Am   Am7/G   F  G


Verse:

well i let you live your life
you let me live mine
so whatever you need
it's just fine it's just fine
you've been here before
you'll probably be back again
'til the hair of that dog
is too frayed at both ends


Chorus:

and i couldn't be more careless
you're probably dead, and i'm just embarassed
i couldn't be more careless
you're probably dead, and i'm just
embarassed
