    1:(Bass over)
    Em
    I'm not sure, 
    D#/A#
    What I'm looking for anymore. 
    Em
    I just know, 
    G
    That I'm harder to console. 
    Em
    I don't see who I'm trying to be, 
    D#/A#
    Instead of me. 
    Em
    But the key, 
    G
    Is a question of control.

    Em
    Can you say, 
    What you're trying to play anyway,
    D#/A#
    I just pay, 
    Em
    While you're breaking all the rules, 
    G
    All the signs that I find. 
    Em
    Have been underlined, 
    D#/A#
    Devils thrive on the drive. 
    Em
    That is fuelled. 
    1:
    Em
    All this running around, 
    G
    Well it's getting me down. 
    C/GAEm
    Just give me a pain that I'm used to. 
    I don't need to believe,
    G
    All the dreams you conceive. 
    C/G
    You just need to achieve, 
    AEm
    Something that rings true.

    3: (Bass drone over)
    Em
    There's a hole in your soul, 
    Like an animal.
    D#/A#
    With no conscience, 
    Em
    Repentance unknown. 
    G
    Close your eyes, 
    Em
    Pay the price for your paradise. 
    D#/A#
    Devils feed on the seeds, 
    Em
    That are sown.

    Em
    Can't conceal what I feel, 
    What I know is real.
    D#/A#
    No mistaking the faking, 
    Em
    I care. 
    G
    With a prayer in the air, 
    Em
    I will leave it there. 
    D#/A#
    On a note full of hope, 
    Em
    Not despair.

    NOTES:
    1. “A Pain That I'm Used To" is the second single and opening track of the album ‘Playing the Angel’
    by Depeche Mode, and the forty-second DM single overall. The single was released on 12 December 2005
    by Mute Records. ...”
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Pain_That_I'm_Used_To
    2. The music video is directed by Uwe Flade, who also directed the "Precious" single. It features
    much more live action sequences (in a race track), than the "Precious" video and even David Gahan's
    "Bottle Living" video. Depeche Mode's live drummer Christian Eigner also appears in the video.

    3. This version, I believe is closest to capturing that original ‘drone-like’ quality of this song,
    that is played live by DM, in opening tuning.
