    _______________________
   / Duffy                /  I think this song is pretty much straight forward.
  / Hanging on Too Long  /  It's about this naive girl looking back at her
 / Rockferry            /  foolish attempt to get the relationship going again
/______________________/  with some foolish guy she should've left long ago.

In this song many of the chords don't come on the beat 1. In such a bar I've split
it up in its 4 beats like this:
  1   2   3   4
| Dm  -   Gm  Am7 | Am |
The dash just means to stay on the chord, of course.

It was just my mistake, thinking you cared
It was just my mistake, thinking you'd be there
That you'd be by my side
And that you wouldn't lie
My mistake

It was just my false hope, thinking we'd last, yeah
It was just my false hope, forgot all your pests
All those girls you denied
Smashed up hearts hung out to dry

I know it's wrong hanging on too long
I know it's wrong hanging on too long
But I need to move on
Hanging on too long

I was a fool for you, right from the start, yeah
I was a fool for you, hoping for a spark
For some kind of sign
That you would be mine

I know it's wrong, I do, hanging on too long, ooh
And I know it's wrong, hanging on too long

My heart was clutching
To one fair right
My head was pumping
It could put up a fight

I know it's wrong hanging on too long
I know it's wrong hanging on too long
And I need to move on
I'm hanging on too long

I know it's wrong hanging on too long
And I know it's wrong hanging on too long
