Bm               D         A           Bm        F#m      G
Learning theres nothing to gain from advice
Bm               D         A           Bm        F#m      G
Hey doubt, come on around any time
D           G            A              Bm       F#m      G
Anyhow mistakes are what lead you through life
Bm              A                     G           Bm   (RIFF See below)
Down and out's only if you think up and in's right
Bm                  D         A                  Bm        F#m      G

I've gone along with the sins that are versions of you
Bm               D         A           Bm        F#m      G
But guidlines were all I had time to get through
D          G        A                    Bm      F#m   G
It's like reading of love that's gone wrong
Bm
If time was laid out like that
D                 A          Bm           (RIFF)
Everything would occur at once
A            G                  Bm    F#m
And all the laws were laid down twice
A             G                 Bm    F#m
And the clouds were doubled in the sky
A             G                 Bm    F#m
And being tall meant lacking height
A             G                 Bm    F#m    G
And being wrong meant being right
Bm
You're perfect
D               A              Bm     F#m    G
You fit snuggly right in the lie
Bm               D         A           Bm        F#m      G
One host is going to teach how to die
D
Lay down
G        A                    Bm      F#m   G
The darkness tonight is so bright
Bm                   A             G        Bm (RIFF)
Reasons There's one for each time cars collide
A         G          Bm       F#m
I hear that telling moments divide
A         G          Bm       F#m
And the only important moments
A    G              Bm      F#m
Are the in between times
A     G                Bm   F#m
And being confused is an exercise
F#m              G                Bm
I'm missing your thoughts tonight
F#m                   A         G        Bm
But we reach out to what's out of our sight
F#m              G                Bm
I'm missing your thoughts tonight
F#m                   A         G        Bm
But we reach out to what's out of our sight

About the artist behind An Exercise:

John Anthony Frusciante (pronounced [fruːˈʃɑːnteɪ (info)) (born March 5, 1970) is an American guitarist, singer, songwriter and record producer. He is best known as the guitarist of the alternative rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he has recorded five studio albums. Frusciante also maintains an active solo career, having released nine albums under his own name, as well as two collaborations with Josh Klinghoffer and Joe Lally under the name Ataxia. His solo recordings incorporate a variety of elements ranging from experimental rock and ambient music to New Wave and electronica. Drawing influence from guitarists of various genres, Frusciante emphasizes melody and emotion in his guitar playing, and favors vintage guitars and analog recording techniques.

Frusciante joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers at the age of eighteen, first appearing on the band's 1989 album Mother's Milk. The group's follow-up album, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, was a breakthrough success. However, he was overwhelmed by the band's newfound popularity and as a result quit in 1992. He became a recluse and entered a long period of heroin addiction, during which he released his first recordings: Niandra Lades and Usually Just a T-Shirt (1994) and Smile from the Streets You Hold (1997). In 1998, Frusciante successfully completed drug rehabilitation and rejoined the Chili Peppers for their 1999 album Californication. Since then he has continued to record with the band and has received critical recognition for his guitar-playing, ranking eighteenth on Rolling Stone's list of "The 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time" in 2003.[1]
