Intro; Ab Eb Fm Db  2x

Ab         Eb                 Fm
See the stone set in your eyes         
         Db                   Ab
See the thorn twist in your side
          Eb       Fm    Db
And I'll wait for you
Ab            Eb                Fm
Sleight of hand and twist of fate
             Db                   Ab
On a bed of nails, she makes me wait
          Eb        Fm      Db
And I'll wait, without you--
             Ab    Eb              Fm     Db 
With or without you, with or without you

Ab             Eb                  Fm
Through the storm we reach the shore
             Db              Ab
You give it all but I want more
          Eb        Fm   Db
And I'll wait for you

         Ab              Eb            Fm            Db
And you give yourself away, and you give yourself away
         Ab              Eb
And you give, And you give,
         Fm            Db
And you give yourself away

            Ab      Eb         Fm           Db
With or without you, with or without you I--
         Ab   Eb             Fm     Db
I can't live-- with or without you

Ab  Eb  Fm  Db 

Ab              Eb
My hands are tied, 
Fm        Db                     Ab
my body bruised, she's got me with
            Eb        Fm              Db
nothing to win, and nothing left to lose

         Ab             Eb
And you give yourself away
         Fm            Db
And you give yourself away
         Ab              Eb
And you give, And you give,
         Fm            Db
And you give yourself away

             Ab      Eb
With or without you,
         Fm           Db
With or without you I--
         Ab   Eb             Fm     Db    Ab.   
I can't live-- with or without you.

  4. I think the chords are right, but I found a mistake in the lyrics, it should be like this after “You give it all but I want more and I’ll wait for you”… :

    With or without you, with or without you I–
    D A Bm G
    I can’t live– with or without you

    D A Bm G

    D A Bm G
    And you give yourself away, and you give yourself away
    D A
    And you give, And you give,
    Bm G
    And you give yourself away

    • A small correction to Marine’s correction, above.

      Leading in to the section she added, the lyrics are:

      “You give it all but I want more, and I’m waiting for you”
