unless you make the wind stop blowing your way

Em               G                    Dsus2          Em
we were like two kids blowing on each other with two straws
     Asus2  Cmaj7              Dsus2     Em
only i was willing to stop and listen to yours

you say you do not want me because i want too much
and i almost let you patronise me one last time
but i don't want too much i just want more than you've got
so the lack is not with either, we are merely a different size

don't forget regret it is a waste of an emotion
and acceptance is the key to peace, do not try to defy her
no i'm not sad we met and slept together in the same bed
i bent, i curved, i lent, i learnt, i'm stronger

you did not do me wrong, in fact you did me right
to let me go although i felt so broken
for you did not see the heart of me - perhaps you were too lazy
and though i tried i could not gain the heart of you either

so now its done and i am glad that i will find another man
though you will always be the first i tasted
and i will harness all this pain and let it bear me far away
i would not let this happening be wasted
