    E - A - D (2x)

 

    E                                                  A                                 D

1.     She says she hates to sleep alone, but she'll do it tonight,

E                                               A                                        D

    she wants to grab her telephone, but she knows it ain't right.

                            G                  C

    So if he won't call, she'll survive,

                             F                    Am

    and if he don't care, she'll get by.

                      D                    G             C - G - D

    climb into bed, bury her head, and cr............y.

 

    E                                               A                                  D

2.     From the beginning he was all anyone could have been,

E                                         A                                       D

    they were delirious with love, they were certain to win.

                                     G                       C

    Now he's breaking plans more and more,

                                 F                  Am

    and he's leaving notes on her door.

                                D                                           G

    Took a trip out of town, couldn't turn this one down.

                        C                             G               D

    He said, "I guess I should have told you before."

 

E                                                    Am                             D

    She says she feels like she's addicted to a real bad thing,

                                        G                                      C

always sitting, waiting, wondering if the phone will ring,

                                                  Am                                    D

She knows she bounces like a yo-yo when he pulls her string,

                                         Em    - D - G

it hurts to feel like such a fool.

                      E                    Am                               D

She wants to tell him not to call or come around again,

                                             G                                        C

he doesn't need her now at all the way that she needs him.

                                            Am                                  D

She's on the edge about to fall from leaning out and in,

                                                       Em

and she don't know which way to move.

    E                                                         A                            D

3.     She wants to be fair, she couldn't say he was ever unkind,

E                                                    A                                         D

    but if she could bear to walk away, she thinks he wouldn't mind.

                                             G            C

    'Cause he just keeps himself so apart

                                     F                Am

     and there's no one else in her heart,

                                  D                                  G

     so she's taking a dive from an emotional high

              C          G       D

     and coming down hard.

    She knows she bounces like a yo-yo when he pulls her string.

                                             Em   - D          C

    It hurts to feel like such a fool.       Woh-oh !
