VERSE 1
E                             G
You picked me up when I was down with nothing 
      A                  C                       D
And gave me something , I can't face the world without 
E                             G
You showed me just enough to fuel my fire 
 A           C                 D
My desire, never wanna live without it 

PRE CHORUS
C                   D
Both of us need something like we had before

This love affair, is breaking my heart

VERSE 2 (same as verse 1 pattern)
Remember days we thought would last forever 
Nothing better but we let them slip away 
Cause in the end we make the bed we lie in 
Lets start trying 
What's the point of talking about it 

PRE CHORUS
Never seems to make it better 
If we can't get on together 
Take a chance and try a brand new start

When we know that we ought to be loving 
And the lying and the cheating 
When we ought to be loving and squeezing
