VERSE 1
Em                 Em7            Am        
What have I got to do to make you love me
D                        (D7)    |G      F#m7b5  B7sus4 |* (see above)
What have I got to do to make you care
Em        Em7               Am        
What do I do when lightning strikes me
D                       (D7)      |G      F#m7b5  B7sus4 |*

C/E      B7/D#
It's sad,  so sad

C                Bsus4    B    | Em     F#m7b5  B7sus4 |*
And it's getting more and more absurd
C/E      B7/D#
It's sad,  so sad
Em/D         A/C#
Why can't we talk it over
C                  
Oh it seems to me
C/B    Am             B7sus4 B7      Em
  That sorry seems to be the hardest word

It's sad,  so sad
Em/D         A/C#
Why can't we talk it over
C                  
Oh it seems to me
C/B    Am             B7sus4 B7      Em

What have I got to do to be heard
Em        Em7               Am        
What do I do when lightning strikes me
F#m7b5             B7
