    D                  

If you, if you could return

                    A6   A 

don't let it burn

                  A6   A 

don't let it fade

                               C    Cadd9

I'm sure You’re happier

                               C    Cadd9

but it's just your attitude

                          G

it's tearing me apart

                

it's ruining everyday

 

       D                        

I swore, I swore I would be true

                           A6   A

but honey so did you

      A6   A                                C    Cadd9 

so why were you holding her hand

                              C  Cadd9

is that the way we stand

                           G

We’re lying all the time

                    

was it just a game to you

          

Chorus:

                       D

And I’m in so deep

                                 A6       A  

you know I'm such a fool for you

A6                      A                           C    Cadd9

     you got me wrapped around your finger

C                Cadd9        G

     do you have to let it linger

      

do you have to

      

do you have to

                             D

do you have to let it linger

 

D

Oh, I

A6                A            A6       A  

thought the world of you

                      C          Cadd9      C    Cadd9

I thought that nothing could go wrong

                  G

but I was wrong

 

I was wrong

 

 

 

 

    D

If you, if you could get by

                   A6       A            

trying not to lie

A6                  A              C    Cadd9                  

things wouldn't be so confused

                                C    Cadd9           

and I wouldn't feel so used

                                   G

but you always really knew

 

I just wanna be with you
