Intro; Db Ab Bbm Gb  2x

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

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

         Db              Ab            Bbm            Gb
And you give yourself away, and you give yourself away
         Db              Ab
And you give, And you give,
         Bbm            Gb
And you give yourself away

            Db      Ab         Bbm           Gb
With or without you, with or without you I--
         Db   Ab             Bbm     Gb
I can't live-- with or without you

Db  Ab  Bbm  Gb 

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

         Db             Ab
And you give yourself away
         Bbm            Gb
And you give yourself away
         Db              Ab
And you give, And you give,
         Bbm            Gb
And you give yourself away

             Db      Ab
With or without you,
         Bbm           Gb
With or without you I--
         Db   Ab             Bbm     Gb    Db.   
I can't live-- with or without you.

    -2 half-steps for easier chords

  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”
