Bridge:
A                   E
All the nights you spent sitting nowhere
F#m               A
Out there on your own
A                E
All the nights I waited by the phone
              F#m       A
When you were going in alone
    A                            E
And all your different faces And all your different ways
           F#m          A
Are making everything a mess And all I'm saying is that
A                           E                     F#m   A

Chorus 2:
    C#m               B
And I can't deny your eyes
                  A
You know I try to read between the lines
  B
I saw a warning sign
             E                       C#m
And then you threw me up against the wall
                   A
Who said that it's better to have loved and lost?
  B
I wish that I had never loved at all
