G                
If it hurts this much,
                    Em
Then it must be love,
                    Em 
And it's a lottery, 
                          G
I can't wait to draw your name.
                        
Oh I'm trying to get to you, 
                     Em
But time isn't on my side, 
                                
if the truths the worst I could do, 
                         C
then I guess that I have lied.
           D
Keeping me awake,
                            Em 
It's been like this now for days, 
                   G
My heart is out at sea,
                     C 
My head all over the place, 
                    D
I'm losing sense of time, 
                          Em
And everything tastes the same, 
                  G
I'll be home in a day, 
I fear that's a month too late.


G         D
That night I slept,
Em             D        C 
On your side of the bed so, 
       G                  D
It was ready when you got home,
G          D           G       D 
We're like noughts and crosses in that
C         G      D
Opposites always attract.


G                      
You've taken me to the top, 
                     Em
And let me fall back south
                                Em
You've had me at the top of the pile, 
                            G
And then had me kissing the ground
                        Em
We've heard and seen it all, 
                  G
No ones talked us out, 
                       Em
The problems that have come
                    C
Haven't yet torn us down.
                 D                        Em
Am I keeping you awake, if I am then just say, 
                      G                                C
You can make your own decisions; you can make your own mistakes, 
                  D                        Em
I'll live and let die all the promises you made, 
                       G
But if you lie another time, it'll be a lie that's too late.


G         D
That night I slept,
Em             D        C 
On your side of the bed so, 
       G                  D
It was ready when you got home,
G          D           G       D 
We're like noughts and crosses in that
C         G      D
Opposites always attract.


G, D, C, G - palm-mute -


    G                D
You always have your way, 
                               C
For now its to soon for you to say, 
                     G
will we be always always? 

- ^ palm-mute x2 then strum hard x3 -


G                   D
You've had your way,

You've had your way,
                    G
You've had your way.
