1ST VERSE:

                  E5
I was out in the cold
  G5          E5       A5
Alone in the night
E5                         G5          E5      A5
How could I carry on, felt so empty inside
C5                    A5
All you gave me were promises
C5                   B5
Nothing better than lies

2ND VERSE:

                     E5
Told me how it could be
          G5        E5       A5
Showed me how to believe
       E5                        G5         E5       A5
But I just didn't realize it was all in my dreams
C5                    A5
All you gave me were promises
C5                       B5
And nothing better than lies
