     Bm      G                  Bm
As a girl, I lived in a million homes 
So I always would keep to myself 
And my lessons were learned
From the stories and poems
I would steal from a library shelf 

Yes, the books like the Roots 
Weren't mine to keep 
        Gbm                Em
But the words weren't left behind 
      Ebm           Dbm                Eb
And I think of them all and I can't sleep 
      Bm               Dbm    Gb
And a poet who read my mind 

As the wise men once wrote
Gb                 Ab 
Never give all the heart 
Ebm        Dbm
Well, it's easy to see 
He was writing for me 
       Ebm                    Abm
I just wish I could play that part 

        E 			  Gb
Yes, he scribbled that love isn't worth thinking of 
That is fades out from kiss to kiss 
If I just learned those lines 
           Db			   Dbm
Well, just think of the misery I'd miss 

As the Irish men said 
B				Eb
Don't put your heart up to play 
When he warned of the cost 
And the heart that he lost 
       Ebm                    Gb
Mister Yeats really paved the way 

For the men that I've known 
Who have clearly shown 
Ebm 			     Gb
They've reading him from the start 
'Cause when it comes to me 
      Db                G
Well, their kisses come free 
         B                  B
But they never give all the heart 

E Gb B Ebm 

When he warned of the cost 
And the heart that he lost 
       Ebm                    Gb
Mister Yeats really paved the way 

For the men that I've known 
Well, they've clearly shown
Ebm			             Ab 
They been reading him from the start 
'Cause each time that I fall 
     Dbm   Em     Eb    Bm    Em
They never give all the heart
