Cuz they tell you to,

Better than the truth, 

Am 
They'll tell you everything, 

You wanted someone else to say, 

F
They're gonna brake your heart.

From What I've seen,

You're just one more hand me down, 
    F                       
But no one's tried to give you, 
          C
What you need, 
      G                Am
Lay all your troubles down, 
      F
I am with you now.

C
Somebody oughta take you in, 

Try to make you love again, 

F
Try to make you like the way they feel, 

When they're under you skin.

C
Never once to you think that they would lie, 

When they're holding you, 

F
You wonder why they havn't called, 

When they said they'd call you, 

Am
You start to wonder, 

If you're ever gonna make it by, 

F
You'll start to think, 

You where born blind.

When living ain't easy

I think the whole thing Is a semi-tone flat, seems to clash with the record when played alongside.

In the chorus there is a (without capo) G#/E7 played inbetween the G and Am. It is (without capo) 420100. You can also play G#dim.
