Verse:
E                     Dbm
There is not a single word
             E
In the whole world 
                        Dbm
That could describe the hurt
                       A
The dullest knife just sawing back and forth
                    B
Ripping through the softest skin there ever was 
                A
How were you to know? 
                B
How were you to know? 

Chorus:
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before

Verse:
E                    Dbm
Love happens all the time
                     E
To people who aren't kind
                   Dbm
And heroes who are blind
                  A
Expecting perfect scripted movie scenes
                     B
Who wants an awkward silence mystery?
                A
How were you to know? 
                B
How were you to know?

Chorus:
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B                                A
But I've been there before

Verse:
            Dbm                 B                 A
For all the air that's in your lungs
            Dbm             B
For all the joy that is to come 
                        A
For all the things that you're alive to feel
                    B
Just let the pain remind you hearts can heal
                A
How were you to know? 
                B
How were you to know?

Chorus:
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before
    E                     Dbm
And I, I hate to see your heart break
                   A
I hate to see your eyes get darker as they close
    B
But I've been there before
