Intro:
Ab Cm Db Eb Fm

Verse 1:
Ab                           Cm
I knew who you were from the start
       Db          Eb       Fm
I just hoped you'd prove me wrong
Ab                          Cm
I could spend all year just letting down my guard
             Db        Eb  Fm
While you're stringing me along
Ab                           Cm
Gave it our best shot but we just missed the mark
       Db       Eb      Fm
Sad to say, our love is gone
Ab                         Cm
I could spend all day just picking you apart
       Db        Eb      Fm
But instead I'll write a song

Chorus:
-nc-
It'll go
Ab Cm Db Eb Fm
Ooh,  ooh
Ab Cm      Db        Eb      Fm
Ooh, so instead I'll write a song

Verse 2:
Ab                         Cm
Said I wouldn't date for a while
        Db       Eb       Fm
Still I couldn't help but flirt
         Ab    Cm
From the day I kissed your smile
           Db      Eb    Fm
I thought "this is gonna hurt"

Chorus:
-nc-
It'll go
Ab Cm Db Eb Fm
Ooh,  ooh
Ab Cm            Db      Eb    Fm
Ooh, I thought, "this is gonna hurt"

Chorus:

This is gonna hurt, this is gonna hurt

Gave it all we can, it'll never work
Db
This is gonna hurt, this is gonna hurt
  Eb
Beware of butterflies, they'll break your heart, your heart

Verse 3:
Ab                          Cm
Told me you'd never been in love
             Db      Eb       Fm
Thought that I could be the exception
       Ab       Cm
It was too much to ask of you
  Db      Eb         Fm
I guess I learned my lesson
    Ab
I'm bracin' for impact
Cm
Leave my heart intact
  Db             Eb     Fm
I wish you never came around
Ab                 Cm
New situation with low expectations
          Db        Eb      Fm
You still manage to let me down

Chorus:
Ab Cm Db Eb Fm
Ooh,  ooh
Ab Cm            Db      Eb    Fm
Ooh, I thought, "this is gonna hurt"
Ab Cm Db Eb Fm
Ooh,  ooh
Ab Cm            Db      Eb    Fm
Ooh, I thought, "this is gonna hurt"

Chorus:
Db
This is gonna hurt, this is gonna hurt
Eb
Gave it all we can, it'll never work
Db
This is gonna hurt, this is gonna hurt
Eb
Gave it all we can, it'll never work

Db
This is gonna hurt, this is gonna hurt
Eb
Gave it all we can, it'll never work
Fm
This is gonna hurt, this is gonna hurt
Gb
Beware of butterflies, they'll break your heart

Bridge:
Ab                 Cm
Butterflies, butterflies
Db     Eb         Fm
 Butterflies will break your heart
Ab               Cm
But if I, But if I
Db      Eb     Fm
 But if I knew from the start
Ab                     Cm
Why would I, why would I
Db         Eb     Fm
 Why would I give this a try?
Ab             Cm
Maybe I, maybe I
Db      Eb      -nc-
Maybe I like to hurt sometimes
