Verse: A D A A Why does she sing her sad songs for me? I'm not the one A D A A to tenderly bring her soft sympathy. I've just begun E E A A to see me way clear and its plain if I stop I should fall. E E A A I can lay down a tear for her pain, just a tear and that's all. Pre-chorus: D A D What does she want me to do? She says that she knows E A A these moments are rare, I suppose that it's true. D E A A Then on she goes to say I don't care, ah, she knows that I do. Chorus: E E A A Maybe she just has to sing for the sake of the song E E A(back to intro) And who do I think that I am to decide that she's wrong? Repeat and enjoy.
