(INTRO)
Bbm Ab/C F#/C#
-----------------------------------------
Bbm       Ab/C           F#/C#
  One and three, you are here (to tell me we can't do this)
   Bbm       
To tell me we can't do this
           Ab/C             F#/C#
(Three for three, I'll disagree.)
-----------------------------------------
  Bbm Ab   F#
Anymore...
-----------------------------------------
     Bbm      Ab               F#  
Your hair and face against the mirror
   Bbm        Ab  
As I take the steps
   F#
To save what's left of me
Bbm          Ab            F#  
   Someone's out when it's over
-----------------------------------------
Bbm Ab              F#
    People steal from you
     Bbm   Ab           F#
They take anything they choose
-----------------------------------------
Ebm     C#      Ab
   It's good to see you (I missed you last night)
Ebm       C#            Ab
   That's such a lovely color (It goes with your eyes)
Ebm         C#       Ab
  Before we fall asleep (I just wanted to say)
Ebm  C#           Ab
This all seems so easy, but there's choices to make
-----------------------------------------
F# 
  Can't decide
                   Ab
  Then look at the faces (candlelight)
                    Ebm
  We're burning the pages (But ask us why)
              Ab
  And hurting ourselves with this false start
             F#
  (Resign yourself) and we pretend
                 Ab
  It simply gets easier
                  Ebm
  But does it get easier
          Ab7
  When we have these mornings where we can't say goodbye,
-----------------------------------------
C#  Ebm            F             Ab
  I wanted to mean everything to you
Db    Ebm        Gb      [Gb-F-Eb-F] <--notes, not chords
  But this isn't right
C#    Ebm         F          Ab 
  You keep coming back disassembled and 
C#     Ebm         F#
I keep losing this fight.
-----------------------------------------
(TIME CHANGE: 6/8)
Bbm Ab/C F#/C#
     I   won't (I won't) 
Bbm Ab/C F#/C#
    An - swer (Answer)
-----------------------------------------
Bbm Ab             F#
    Dancing on the starlight glow
Bbm Ab            F#
    No one in the city knows
Bbm Ab             F#
    Confidence can take you
              Bbm
Nerves try to shake you
   Ab      F#      Bbm
From going all the way
-----------------------------------------
Bbm
It's not that far
-----------------------------------------
Ebm      C#      Ab
    It's good to see you, I missed you last night
Ebm         C#         Ab
     That's such a lovely color, it goes with your eyes
Ebm  C#              Ab
   Before we fall asleep, I just wanted to say
Ebm    C#           Ab
  This all seems so easy -- there's choices to make.
-----------------------------------------
[Bb]                                            [C#]
    We watch the tide roll in with cold air and coffee cakes
                                            [Eb]
    Holding our words at lips, stopping the sounds they make
                                       [F#]
    We know the way to go we know each step to take to be here...
-----------------------------------------
Bbm
  These words with no replies
Ab
  Stopping we's and starting I's
Ebm
  This need is killing me
    Ab7
And taking me over
-----------------------------------------
C#  Ebm       Fm       Ab
  I wanted to mean everything to you
C#    Ebm        Ab
  But this isn't right
C#    Ebm         Fm        Ab
  You keep coming back disassembled and 
C#     Ebm        Ab 
I keep losing this fight
