    G                                    Am

    Okay so I was wrong about


    My reasons for us fallin’ out


    Of love I want to fall back in


    G                                         Am

    My life is different now I swear


    I know now what it means to care


    About somebody other than myself


    G                                          Am

    I know the things I said to you


    They were untender and untrue


    I’d like to see those things undo


    G                                               Am

    So if you could find it in your heart


    To give a man a second start


    I promise things won’t end the same



    G                               C

    Shame, boatloads of shame

                    Am                   D

    Day after day, more of the same

    G                           C

    Blame, please lift it off

                        Am                       D

    Please take it off, please make it stop


    G                                  Am

    Okay so I have read the mail


    The stories people often tell


    About us that we never knew


    Start Bass-Strum:

    G                              Am

    But their existence will float away


    And just like every word they say


    And we will hold hands as they fade





    C                                   Bm

       I felt so sure of everything


    My love to you so well received


    And I just strutted around your town


    Knowing I didn’t let you down


    The truth be known, the truth be told


    My heart was always fairly cold


    Posing to be as warm as yours


    My way of getting in your world


    But now I’m out and I’ve had time


    To look around and think


    And sink into another world


    That’s filled with guilt and overwhelming




    G                                      Am

    And everyone they have a heart


    And when they break and fall apart


    And need somebody’s helping hand


    G                                    Am

    I used to say just let ’em fall


    It wouldn’t bother me at all


    I couldn’t help them now I can
