1. Guess we knew this was coming on,

†††††††††††††††† Bm††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††† - C

††† ícause you're already gone in my head.

†††††††††††††† ††††G

††† You can tell me that I'm wrong,

†††† Bm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Em†††††††† - C

††† that you're staying with me instead.

 

†††††† †††††††††G††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† Bm

††† When winter's come along, and summerís dead and gone,

†††††† ††††††††††Em†††††††††††† ††††††††††††††††C

††† is there anything left here to say?

†††† †††††††††G††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††Bm

††† I can put my arms around the emptiness I found,

††††† ††††††Em††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††C

††† and find a way to make you stay.

 

††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††G†††††††††††† ††††††††††Bm††††††††† ††††††††††††††††††††Em††† - C

But I'm standing still, I'm standing still, as you leave me now,

††††††††††††††††††††† G††††††††††††† †††††††††Bm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††Em†† - C

I'm standing still, I'm standing still as you're walking out,

††† ††††††††††††††††††††††††G

I'm just standing still.

 

††††††††††††††††† G

3. Now before I felt so strong,

†††††††††† Bm††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††Em†††††††† - C

††† and pieces of me break so easy,

†††† ††††††††††††††G

††† what I thought would be the end,

††† ††††Bm†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† †††††Em†††††††† - C

††† is just the feeling that you freed me.

 

†††††† †††††††G†††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††Bm

††† Girl, this ain't giving up, itís knowing where to stop,

†††† Em††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††††††††C

††† knowing when a thing is over,

†††††† †††G†††††††††††††††††††††† ††††Bm

††† I know my life is blind, see for the first time

†† ††Em††††††††††††††††††††† †††††††††††††C

††† this ainít gonna bring us closer.
