C                  
Once upon a time, a few mistakes ago
Gsus4
I was in your sights, you got me alone
Am                              Fmaj7
You found me, you found me, you found me-e
C
I guess you didn't care, and I guess liked that
    Gsus4
And when I fell hard, you took a step back
    Am                      Fmaj7      C
Without me, without me, without me-e

Pre-chorus: (pm)
              Gsus4                   Am

Realize, the blame is on me

       Am              Fmaj7                   Gsus4
'Cause I knew you were trouble when you walked in
       C        C/B   Am
It's a shame on me now-ow
           Fmaj7             Gsus4
Flew me to places I'd never been 
          C      C/B
'Till you put me down, oh

Chorus II: (st)
Am              Fmaj7                    Gsus4

        C (stop)                 Am
Now I'm lyin' on the cold hard ground!

Ahh  oh   oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

Verse: (pm)
No apologies, he'll never see you cry
Pretends he doesn't know, that he's the reason why
You're drowning, you're drowning, you're drowning-e-e-e-ing
Now I heard you moved on, the whispers on the street
A new notch in your belt, it's all I'll ever be
And now I see, now I see, now I see-e-e-e-e

Pre-chorus: (pm)
He was long gone, when he met me
And I realize, the joke is on me,  yeah

I knew you were trouble when you walked in
It's a shame on me now-ow
Flew me to places I'd never been 
'Till you put me down, oh

It's a shame on me now-ow
Flew me to places I'd never been
Now I'm lyin' on the cold hard ground!

Post-chorus: (st)
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble
Ahh  oh oh, trouble, trouble, trouble

Bridge:
          Fmaj7            Am
And the sadest fear, comes creepin' in
         Fmaj7
That you never loved me or her, 
   Gsus4                      (C  C/B)
Or anyone, or anything, yeah yeah 

Chorus: (st)
I knew you were trouble when you walked in
It's a shame on me now-ow
Flew me to places I'd never been (never been)
'Till you put me down, oh
