[Capo on 5ft fret]

VERSE1

C<->Csus4/E (3 times)

                           C<->Csus4/E (2 times)
All the pretty clothes

                                 C<->Csus4/E (2 times)
that protect you from the cold

        C/G               C
they're falling    to the ground

            Am/C     Riff1          Cadd9
'nd I don't want you        to turn around

                  Em7*
but why would you hide

                         C<->Csus4/E (3 times)
when you are naked to my eyes



VERSE 2

                            C<->Csus4/E (2 times)
You try to make me believe

                                       C<->Csus4/E (2 times)
that you're the strongest of the two

       C/G     
but we both    know

                C
that that ain't so

        Csus4/E  Riff1                Cadd9
and I'm hoping          I'll make you happy

Em7*                         C<->Csus4/E (2 times)
though I can make you cry on cue


[Instrumental]



VERSE3

Csus4/E                Cadd9        Am(maj7)
I'm getting you ready        not to need me

G                              C
letting you slide right off my knees

     Csus4/E         Cadd9            Am(maj7)
It's part of my plan       to release you

       G                           C
'cause I have faith that you'll be back



CHORUS

     G(3rd)                  F
When I've given up on life itself

                       Am
and nothing matters anymore

           C6
It will be you, it will be you

G                  C    C<->Csus4/E (2 times)
walking through my door


[REPEAT ONCE FROM THE TOP]
