Brilliant song, great story.
Chords repeat for entire song.

[ E  C#m  A  E ] – whole song

There was a guy at my school when I was in high school 
We'd ride side by side in the morning on our bicycles 
Never even spoken or faced each other 
But on the last hill we'd race each other 

When we reached the racks we'd each go our own way 
I wasn't in his classes, I didn't know his name 
When we finally got to speak he just stared at his feet 
And mumbled a sentence that ended with 'James' 

I was young and caught in the crowd 
I didn't know then what I know now 
I was dumb, and I was proud and I'm sorry 
If I could go back do it again 
I'd be someone you could call friend 
Please please believe that I'm sorry 

Well he was quite a big guy, kinda shy and quiet 
When the kids called him weird he didn't try to deny it 
Every lunchtime he'd spend walking by himself 
Round the boundary of the grounds til he heard the bell 

Well one day I found him, joined him on his walk 
We were silent for a while until we started to talk 
I told him my family were fighting in court 
He said his step-dad and him always fought 

We talked about music, he was into punk 
Told me all the bands that I liked were junk 
I said I'd never heard the songs the sex pistols sang 
I laughed back at him and then the bell rang 


It was after school in the afternoon 
The corridors were crowded as we came out of the rooms 
Three guys I knew pushed him into the cement 
Threw away his bag and said he had no friends 

He yelled that he did and he looked around 
Tried getting up but they pushed him on down 
That's when he saw me, called out my name 

And I turned my back, and just walked away 
Yeah I turned my back, and just walked away 

Please, please believe that I'm sorry
