======== =================================================================

[intro.]

[v.line] You took your coat off and stood in the rain, 

         You were always crazy like that 

[v.line] I watched from my window, 

         Always felt I was outside looking in on you 

[v.line] You were always the mysterious one with dark eyes and careless 

         hair... You were fashionably sensitive, but too cool to care. 

[v.line] You stood in my doorway, with nothing to say...

         besides some comment on the weather 

[v.line] Well in case you failed to notice; in case you failed to see..

         This is my heart bleeding before you; this is me down on my knees



[c.line] These foolish games are tearing me apart 

[c.line] Your thoughtless words are breaking my heart 

         You're breaking my heart

[intro.]

[v.line] You were always brilliant in the morning 

         Smoking your cigarettes, talking over coffee... 

[v.line] Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you, You loved Mozart 

         you'd speak of your loved ones As I clumsily strummed my guitar 

[v.line] You'd teach me of honest things... 

         Things that were daring, things that were clean... 

         Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean 

[v.line] So I hid my soiled hands behind my back, 

         Somewhere along the line I must've gone off track with you 

[v.line] Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else 

         Somebody who gave a damn, Somebody more like myself



[c.line] These foolish games are tearing me apart 

[c.line] Your thoughtless words are breaking my heart 

         You're breaking my heart

[intro.]

[Dm x 4]

[v.line] You took off your coat and stood in the rain 

         You were always like that



[repeat intro and fade...]

Tab: (note the guitar tuning... tune 5th and 6th strings up 1/2 step to

      Bb and F respectively.  This makes it considerably easier to play.)

It's a fun one once you have it - vary the picking during 

 the verses and/or chorus to give more feel to things.
