            C               Em
Can you not see what you've done?
    F                G
You gave your heart away like that.
         C               Em
I didn't want to fall in love,
     F               G
with anyone but you, dear.
            C        Em
I can still hear the song,
     F       G
the melody behind the kiss,
    C                 Em
you gave me, you were wrong,
      F                  G
I was right so I walked away,
             C       Em
and left you there, alone,
   F              G
I got so tired of talking on the
C   Em
    F                   G
how many times would we say the words, "Good bye?"

       C             Em
I made mistakes, and one,
     F               G
was telling you that I'd be there when
C                    Em
telling time (?) had come,
  F                        G
I should have said I didn't care.
        C                 Em
All the time I would have saved,
   F               G
If I had been less willing
     C   Em
to accommodate,
      F           G
you'd been a little less likely to cry.


Am                 G
You go back to the high life,
    Am                  G
and I'll go back to the low.
I should have known,
But now I know.
               C         Em
There'll be no word from you,
   F              G
describing how it felt to go through
C              Em
what I put you through
    F                G
It all makes perfect sense
            C       Em
the way you cut the rope
     F                 G
that kept you dangling from such
     C             Em
pitiful amounts of hope,
F                    G
I would have cut it, too.


I'm not much of a tab reader, I go by chords and embellish off of them. Hold the C chord
down, then pluck the A string (third fret) twice, followed by the D (second fret) once,
then the open G string, then G string, second fret (with your middle finger). Then do 
the same thing in reverse, adding an optional pull-of on the D string.

End on C.
