verse 1
(fig.1)
Dm       C              Dm      C     Dm   C  Dm C
Now and then I think of when we were together
Dm            C                Dm     C        Dm  C Dm C         
Like when you said you felt so happy you could die
Dm     C                  Dm         C      
Told myself that you were right for me
Dm           C             Dm      C
But felt so lonely in your company
Dm            C                Dm       C     Dm    C  Dm  C
But that was love and it's an ache I still remember

Verse 2 (play with fig.1)
You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness Like resignation to the end Always the end
So when we found that we could not make sense Well you said that we would still be friends
But I'll admit that I was glad that it was over

And I don't even need your love But you treat me like a stranger And that feels so rough

Dm       C             Dm                  C          Dm  C Dm C      
Now and then I think of all the times you screwed me over
Dm          C                Bb              C      Dm   C Dm
But had me believing it was always something that I'd done
