Verse:
Dm            Bb                        F   
You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
                C 
You were always crazy like that
Dm                Bb 
I watched from my window,
                  F                C     
always felt I was outside looking in on you
          Dm 
You were always the mysterious one 
     Bb
with dark eyes and careless hair, 
          F                             C
You were fashionably sensitive, but too cool to care 
         Dm          Bb                       F
Then you stood in my doorway, with nothing to say 
             C
besides some comment on the weather

Bridge:
         Gm
Well in case you failed to notice, 
    Bb
In case you failed to see, 
F   
This is my heart bleeding before you, 
C
This is me down on my knees

Chorus:
Bb             C        F   C      Bb 
These foolish games are tearing me apart
Bb                 C         F     C      Bb 
You’re thoughtless words are breaking my heart
                Dm 
You're breaking my heart

Verse:
                Dm               Bb
You were always brilliant in the morning
             F           C
Smoking your cigarettes, talking over coffee 
          Dm                       Bb
You philosophies on art, Baroque moved you, 
                            F 
You loved Mozart and you'd speak of your loved ones
      C
As I clumsily strummed my guitar 
Dm
You'd teach me of honest things 
Bb
Things that were daring, things that were clean 
F                                 C
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean 
      Dm                           Bb
So I hid my soiled hands behind my back 
F                                    C
Somewhere along the line I must've gone off track with you

Bridge:
Gm                                     Bb
Excuse me, think I've mistaken you for somebody else 
F
Somebody who gave a damn, 
C
Somebody more like myself

Chorus:
Bb             C        F   C      Bb 
These foolish games are tearing me apart
Bb                 C         F     C      Bb 
You’re thoughtless words are breaking my heart
                Dm 
You're breaking my heart

Interlude: D  Bb  F  C

D             Bb                        F
You took your coat off and stood in the rain, 
                            C
you were always crazy like that
