Intro: Bb F C Dm


Bb                                             F
When i was a kid the things i did were hidden under the grid
C                                                 Dm
Young and naive, i never believed that love could be so well hid
Bb                                            F
With regret I'm willing to bet they say 'the older you get
C                                    Dm
It gets harder to forgive and harder to forget
Bb                               F
It gets under your shirt like a dagger at work
C                                    Dm
The first cut is the deepest but the rest still flippin' hurt
    Bb                                   F
You build your heart of plastic, you're cynical and sarcastic
        C
and you end up in the corner on your own


Bb                                       F
'Cos I'd love to feel love, but i can't stand the rejection
  C                         Dm
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
  Bb                              F
I thought i was close, but under further inspection
   C                               Dm
It seems I've been running, in the wrong direction, oh no

Interlude - x2 -: Bb F C Dm

           Bb                                             
What's the point in getting your hopes up, when all you're ever getting is 
F
choked up?
            C                                Dm
When you're coked up, and can't remember the reason why you broke up
       Bb                                   F
You'll call her in the morning when you're coming down and falling
        C                          
Like an old man on the side of the road
            Bb            
When you're apart, you don't wanna mingle
            F                            
When you're together you wanna be single
         C                                     Dm
Ever the chase to taste the kiss of bliss that made your heart tingle
         Bb
How much greener the grass is
              F
Through those rose tinted glasses
        C
And the butterflies that flutter by and leave us on our arses


Bb                                       F
'Cos I want to feel love, but i can't stand the rejection
  C                         Dm
I hide behind my jokes as a form of protection
  Bb                              F
I thought i was close, but under further inspection
   C                               Dm
It seems I've been running, in the wrong direction
        Bb                         F
There's fish in the sea for me to make a selection
    C                            Dm
I'd jump in, if it wasn't for my ear infection
Bb                            F
All I really want is just to make a connection
       C                              Dm
But it seems I've been running in the wrong direction, oh no

Interlude - x2 -: Bb F C Dm

        Bb          F
What is love? Baby don't hurt me
      Dm
Don't hurt me
   C
No more
        Bb          F
What is love? Baby don't hurt me
      Dm
Don't hurt me
   C
No more
        Bb          F
What is love? Baby don't hurt me
      Dm
Don't hurt me
   C
No more

Outro:

  1. Gotta say batman is funny online. Kind of mean in real life though.

  2. For everyone saying it changes that is actually the version he has used on many occasions when performing live :)

  3. Looks like towards the end there the song went in-wait for it- the wrong direction… *puts on sunglasses*

  4. It changes to ‘What is Love’ at the end…

  5. monkeychimp109

    I Love this song and its great to play but why at the end does it change to ‘What is love? Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more!’ Bit weird… :)
