Can’t break it to my heart    (video)

 

    D - G   - D - G

 

   D                                         Em

1.    I never felt this helpless, as I do today,

            G                                            A

    my world just fell around me as I watched you drive away.

                   D                                            Bm

    There’s nothing left between us, somehow we've grown apart,

                        G                                                      A

    ’cause I've got it through my head, I just can't break it to my heart.

 

               D                                 Bm

I can't believe this is me on the hurting side of pain,

  G                                             A

sifting through the ashes, still trying to find a flame.

              Bm                                                   G                  Bm

But the flames have turned to embers, left glowing in the dark,

                    G                                                      A                   D

’cause I've got it through my head, I just can't break it to my heart.

 

+  D - G

 

    D                                                      Em

2. If I could, Lord knows, I would spin back the hands of time,

             G                                                              A

    and piece these scattered memories that are fluttered in my mind.

             D                                      Bm

    Pick up where we left off, and make a brand new start,

             G                                                     A

    I've got it through my head, I just can't break it to my heart.

 

+  CHORUS

 

               G                                                      A                   D

+  Oh, I got it through my head, I just can't break it to my heart.

 

+  repeat last line (3x, with varying lyrics) ...
