            C                        Em                   D
  You said I'm just a sinking ship, I'm just a sinking ship

  But what that really means
      C                     Em                  D
  Is you can't handle this, you can't handle this
  
  You couldn't win so you turn it around
 

 Chorus:
C
  You didn't let me down
Em
  You didn't tear me apart
D
  You just opened my eyes

  While breaking my heart
C
  You didn't do it for me
Em
  I'm not as dumb as you think
D
  You just made me cry
                           C
  While claiming that you love me
       Em           D
  You love me, you love me

  You said you loved me but that
   C                   Em               D
  I'm not good enough, I'm not good enough

 
  Bridge:
C            Em
  Your love feels different
D
  It's like a blow to the head with your compliments
C            Em
  Your love hurts deeper
D
  It's like a brick in the sea and I'm drowning with it
 

  Chorus:
C
  You didn't let me down
Em
  You didn't tear me apart
D
  You just opened my eyes

  While breaking my heart
C
  You didn't do it for me
Em
  I'm not as dumb as you think
D
  You just made me cry
                           C
  While claiming that you love me
       Em           D
  You love me, you love me

  You said you loved me but that
   C                   Em               D
  I'm not good enough, I'm not good enough
                                                   C            Em
  So understand it means nothing when you say you love me, you love me
                    D
  When you say you love me
                    C
  When you say you love me
       Em           D
  You love me, you love me
 
C
  You didn't let me down
Em
  You didn't tear me apart
D
  You just opened my eyes

  While breaking my heart
C
  You didn't do it for me
Em
  I'm not as dumb as you think
D
  You just made me cry
                           C
  While claiming that you love me
       Em           D
  You love me, you love me

  You know the truth is that
   C                      Em                   D
  You're not good enough, you're not good enough

       Dm
Simple math

Our love divided by the square root of pride

             Dm                     Bb                 F          C
Here's your keys, your bags, your clothes and now get out of my place
             Dm    Bb
You say I'm crazy 
               F     
And that we're happy
     C             Dm       Bb    F    C
Is that supposed to comfort me?

All of your promises, flushed
            Dm         Bb     C
A thousand apologies, just
                               Dm     Bb     C
Take out the pain and then it leaves us
                 Dm      Bb         C      
With nothing at all, no nothing at all
 

         Dm          Bb      F     C
You can stop wasting my time
    Dm           Bb       F     C
Without you I'm just fine
            Dm         Bb
Why did it take me so long to figure out
 F         C           Dm    Bb
Dumb plus dumb equals you,

Equals you

 Verse:
        Bm                      D 
 If you go, they'll say you're following
          A                     E
 If you don't, then you're too good for them
         Bm                D     
 If you smile, you must be ignorant
          A                  E
 If you don't, what's your problem?
            Bm          D
 If you're down, so ungrateful
                A             E
 And if you're happy, why so selfish?
                Bm
 And, you can't win

 No, you can't win, no

A                              E 
 The one who doesn't quite fit in

 Underdressed under your skin

 Oh, a walking disaster
A                       E
 Everytime you try to fly

 You can't can't win, no

 If you're thin, poor little walking disease
            A                  E
 If you're not, they're all screaming obese
              Bm                    D
 If you're straight, why aren't you married yet?
            A                   E
 If you're gay, why aren't you waving a flag?
           Bm            D
 If it's wrong, you're knowing it
           A           E
 If it's right, you'll always miss

 But it's wearing on your heart
          F#m                A
 And you play, you play the game
          Bm               D

 You can't win, nooo

Bm                                C
 But here's something you don't know about me
           D
 When you pushed me out
          Em
 I found something better, you'll see
Bm                           C
 While you were paying no attention to me
              D                     
 I found somebody who can treat me right


 Chorus:
                              Em    C
 When I'm with him I'm not aloooooooone
  G          D
 Gets better everyday
Em  C         G   D
 I hope you know, oh
            Em    C
 I'm not aloooooooone
           G             D
 And it's never gonna change
Em  C        G
 I hope you know
       D                 Em    C
 When I'm with you I'm alooooooone
 G           D
 No matter what you say
Em  C         G     D
 I hope you know, woah
             Em       C
 That I'm alooooooooooone
G                D
 You say you're gonna change
Em       C        G      D
 But I know you won't, woah oh
           Em   C   G   D   Em   C   G   D
 I'm not alone

 G               D               Em        C
 Any chance you get to play the warn out pity card
 G         D         Em         C
 Any opportunity to push my buttons hard
 G             D          Em        C
 It's getting old, your "poor me" thoughts
 G            D           Em       C

G      D     Em       C        G  D   Em   C 
 This broken record thing has got to stop

 G    D    Em    C


  G                D              Em            C
 Now you're up in arms because I say we're not working out
      G           D                  Em            C
 You wonder if I loved you from the start, well I tell you what

 This metamorphosis is just too much
G        D        Em        C       G       D   Em   C

 I guess it's true that love can grow in different directions
Em            D                  G            C
 I chose the high road and you chose to be a girl

G                D                  C
  I can see the wait there in your eyes
                    D             G
  I can feel the thought in your sigh
                       D                   C         D
  Your knuckles are bruised from a losing fight
G          D                 C
  One way down a dead end street
                D               G
  Broken glass underneath your feet
                 D                           C        D
  You think the day won't break the sunless night


                G         D
  The sun will riiiiiiiiiiise
                C         D

                         G           D

G                 D             C
  I've been stuck in a storm before
                 D            G
  Felt the wind raging at my door
                             D                      C      D
  Couldn't move, couldn't breathe, Couldn't find a way out
G                D            C           D          G
  Somehow the clouds disappeared, Somehow I made it here
                 D                 C      D
  Maybe just so you could hear me say


G         D
  The sun will riiiiiiiiiiise
                C         D
  The sun will riiiiiiiiiiise

      Bm              C
  Although you can't see it
      D         Em      
  So hard to believe it
       Bm             C             D
  Sometimes you just need a little faith 
             Bm               C
  There's an answer to your prayer
      D              Em             C
  And I swear that there'll come a day yeahh

E:    022100


 Intro:    G     D     Em     F   x2


G        D
 I Am A woman
         Em
 Cut in two
       F
 By ambitious pride
G              D
 Stuck in my ways
          Em
 Between you 
        F
 And my other life

     Am                                               C
 Now I have been around enough to know when love has ended
     Am                                         D
 But I believe that you and I deserve to be extended

 
                   G       D
 So why don't you try
             Em
 To make me stay
            F
 When it's time to go
                 G       D
 Why don't you try
                 Em
 To stand in my way
           F
 Cause we both know
                  G
 I can't stop myself

 
             D
 Our empty house
          Em
 You occupy
           F 
 When I'm far away
G           D              Em
 Heavier hearts won't justify
          F
 Why I'm gone today

    Am                                                C
 Now I have hung a cloud above our lives from always leaving
   Am                                               D
 Figured you would at least make me give a better reason
 

                   G       D
 So why don't you try
             Em
 To make me stay
            F
 When it's time to go
                 G       D
 Why don't you try
                 Em
 To stand in my way
           F
 Cause we both know
                  G      
 I can't stop myself
  
 
Instrumental part:  G    D    Em    F   x2   
(I have no idea how this part is really played in the recording so I just put that 
chord progression instead)


Am                              D
 In the early mornings when I'm up before dawn
Am                                      D
 You say "why don't you stay" but you keep sleeping on
 G                  F          E
 Maybe you're just used to me being gone
           Am                        D
 Cause if you know that I don't want to go
 

                   G       D      Em
 So why don't you try
            F
 When it's time to go
                 G       D
 Why don't you try
                 Em
 To stand in my way
           F
 Cause we both know
                  G
 I can't stop myself

       D
 Why don't you
      Em
 Why don't you try
            F
 When it's time to go, oh

       G
 Cause I don't want to have to go
                    D
 And be the one to leave you holding on alone
            Em
 But this, this is my goodbye
     F
 So why don't you try
 
 G    D    Em    F     x2

 End on G
