Verse 1:
B                            Gb
I come runnin' to you like a moth into a flame
     Abm                              E
You tell me, "Take it easy," but it's easier to say
     B             Gb
Wish I didn't need so much of you
  Abm                E
I hate to say, but I do
      B                                   Gb
We're sleepin' on our problems like we'll solve them in our dreams
    Abm                               E
We wake up early morning and they're still under the sheets
     B                     Gb
I'm lost in my head, I'm spinnin' again
       Abm                E
Tryna find what to say to you
 
Pre-Chorus:
E
  Been up all night
Abm
  All night runnin' all my lines
B                    Gb
  But it’s only the truth
E
  Been up all night
Abm
  Not sure how to say this right
B                -nc-
  Got so much to lose

                E
Never been so defenceless -Oh-
Abm               B
  Never been so defenceless -Ooh-
Gb                                E

Verse 2:
    B                               Gb
No, you don’t have to keep on being strong for me and you
Abm                               E
Acting like you feel no pain, you know I know you do
      B                            Gb
And I can't get inside when you're lost in your pride
        B                     E
But you don't have a thing to prove
 
Pre-Chorus:

Just wanna be loved by you -Don't you be so defensive-
