2nd Verse:

starts with the verse-riff played 2 times without singing

same Chords as in 1st Verse

i heard it all before
so don't knock down my door
i'm a loser and a user so i don't need no accuser
to (try and) slag me down because i know you're right
so go do what you like
make sure you do it wise
you may find out that yourself doubt means nothing was ever there
you can't go forcing something if it's just not right

Chorus

Verse-Riff played twice
