  1. This is a bookmark for me to read the lyrics in dark mode:

    Well if you wanted honesty, that's all you had to say

    I never want to let you down or have you go, it's better off this way

    For all the dirty looks

    For photographs your boyfriend took

    Remember when you broke your foot from jumping out the second floor?

    I'm not okay

    I'm not okay

    I'm not okay

    You wear me out

  2. Me when going over cords: Alright, I’m okay..
    Me when going over strumming patterns: ohh… ohhh no, I’m not okay
    Goes back to riptide****

  3. I was looking for guitar tutorials for this song but I saw this so I grabbed my uke immediately but now it feels so different.

  4. I have this problem where I'm saying the strumming pattern in my head then I can't sing the song, but if I try to sing without saying the strumming pattern I can't get the strumming. WHY?!

  5. currently deciding if I should find a way to play this without my mom hearing me scream "IM NOT OKAY" or if I really shouldn't care if she hears me. I could play outside if it wasn't 90 degrees out there

  6. Got my ukulele 2 days ago. Now I'm here and this is it. Once I've learned this I need nothing else. I can retire from my ukulele career now. By career I mean my career of playing really awful G notes.

  7. Ok I feel like an idiot for saying this but you have the capo on the first fret and you told us to put it on the 2nd fret, am I just being an idiot??

  8. Ok I'm not saying you're bad, you're really good btw but the ukulele in my opinion just dosent fit with the song very well like it does with cancer

    Edit: I'm just be totally honest sorry to those who are offended.
