A Matter of Trust

Rhythm Guitar:

  D      Bm                          2x 

Verse 1
 D                   Bm 
Some love is just a lie of the heart 
D                         Bm                      F#m                                    
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
And they may not want it to end
But it will, it's just a question of when

Verse 2
D                       Bm
I've lived long enough to have learned
D                          Bm                     F#m 
The closer you get to the fire the more you get burned
But that won't happen to us
Because it's always been a matter of trust 

---Instrumental Break--- same as intro  

Verse 3
D                 Bm
I know you're an emotional girl
D                        Bm                            F#m
It took a lot for you to not lose your faith in this world
I can't offer you proof
But you're gonna face a moment of truth

Verse 4
D                       Bm
It's hard when you're always afraid
D                      Bm                   F#m
You just recover when another belief is betrayed
So break my heart if you must
It's a matter of trust 

Bridge 1
You can't go the distance
With too much resistance
   Em              A
I know you have doubts                   
          F#m                      G G G G-A  A   
But for God's sake don't shut me out 

Verse 5
D                      Bm
This time you've got nothing to lose
D                         Bm                    F#m
You can take it, you can leave it whatever you choose
I won't hold back anything
And I'll walk away a fool or a king

Verse 6
D                    Bm
Some love is just a lie of the mind
D                             Bm               F#m
It's make believe until it's only a matter of time
And some might have learned to adjust
But then it never was a matter of trust 

----Instrumental break---- variation of intro lead, but 4x instead of 2x 
Rhythm: D  Bm  4x

Bridge 2
I'm sure you're aware love
       F#m                  Em              A
We've both had our share of believing too long
          F#m                     G G G G-A A
When the whole situation was wrong 

Verse 7
D                    Bm
Some love is just a lie of the soul
D                           Bm               F#m
A constant battle for the ultimate state of control
After you've heard lie upon lie
There can hardly be a question of why

Verse 8
D                   Bm
Some love is just a lie of the heart
D                         Bm                       F#m
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
But that can't happen to us
'Cause it's always been a matter of trust 


Play Intro (slightly varies) over and over (Fades out after 6x)

It's a matter of trust

It's always been a matter of trust 

It's a matter of trust

On the second instrumental the verse chords are played staying with the A7 at the end before they go back to the bridge Em
