INTRO:  D  GM7  [5x - arpeggiated]  |  D  A6  C  G

[D = x x 0 2 3 2 & GM7 = x x 0 0 3 2]


   D                                      A6

If you, if you could return; don't let it burn, don't let it fade.


I'm sure I' m not being rude; but it' s just your attitude.


It's tearing me apart; it's ruining everything.

      D                                                  A6

And I swore, I swore I would be true; and, honey, so did you.


So, why were you holding her hand?  Is that the way we stand?


Were you lying all the time?  Was it just a game to you?



              D                          A6          A

But I'm in so deep.  You know I'm such a fool for you.

                               C                             G

You got me wrapped around your finger; do you have to let it linger?

G                                                     D

Do you have to, do you have to, do you have to let it linger?



      A                                    C

Oh, I thought the world of you.  I thought nothing could go wrong.


But I was wrong, I was wrong.

   D                                      A

If you, if you could get by trying not to lie,


Things wouldn't be so confused and I wouldn't feel so used.


But, you always really knew, I just wanna be with you.






CHORUS:  [2x]


OUTRO:  [repeat intro D to GM7 bit 3x]
