D7sus2  Bb      A7      Em      Fmaj7sus4
x00210  x13331  x02020  022000  X03310


Am     F                C             (riff A)

Adia I do believe I failed you

Am     F                      Em7
Adia I know I let you down

C                       F
Don't you know I tried so hard

C               C/B     Am   (riff B)
To love you in my way

      D7sus2    C   (riff C)  G
It's easy let it go

Am           F                    C          (riff A)
Adia I'm empty since you left me

Am                   F                  Em7
Trying to find a way to carry on

   C                         F
I search myself and everyone

      C                          G
To see where we went wrong
            D7sus2         G        
There’s no one left to finger

            C                    F
There's no one here to blame

            D7sus2         G
There's no one left to talk to honey

                C                   Bb (or Fmaj7sus4)     F
And there ain't no one to buy our                     innocence, ‘cause









 G         C             A7
We are born innocent

                 F            D7sus2    G       Em
Believe me Adia, we are still    innocent

      A7              D7sus2
It's easy, we all falter

Does it matter?


Am        F                       C          (riff A)
Adia I thought we could make it

Am                       F                            Em7
But I know I can't change the way you feel

   C                            F
I leave you with your misery

    C                         G
A friend who won't betray

    D7sus2               G        
I pull you from your tower

    C                    F
I take away your pain

            D7sus2         G                C
And show you all the beauty you possess

                     Bb (or Fmaj7sus4)     F
If you'd only let yourself                   believe that





Chorus #2:

G                 C           A7
Believe me Adia, we are still

        F      D7sus2


            G         C             A7
'cause we are born innocent

                 F            D7sus2    G       Em
Believe me Adia, we are still innocent

      A7              D7sus2
It's easy, we all falter

Does it matter?
