Def Jam records, 'Know-It-All'.

[Verse]

Am7                            F
Still got the flowers that you sent
        C                               G
And the note you wrote that said we're meant to be forever
Am7                        F
I keep them all as evidence
      C                                    G
In a drawer under the mirror, filled with empty promises
Dm7
I don't know why
       Am7
I keep letting you lie to me
C
Hard as I try
           G
It seems I can't break away
               Am7
I thought that you would be the hero
         F
Come and save the day
                  C
But you're a villain
                  G
Your sins unforgiven


[Chorus]

          Am7                                F
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              C                        G
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Am7                                   F
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              C                    G
The river of tears has washed me clean
Dm7
Go 'head and wish me well
Am
I'll cry a wishing well
C
I'll fly before I fail
G                       Am7
I'll set sail and drift away
                       F
So I won't need you here
                         C
Love sinks and hope floats
                  G
In a river of tears

In a river of tears


[Verse]

Am7                         F
I catch your scent in every wind
         C         
And I recall the love we had
         G             Am7
I can't pretend that I 
                             F
Don't miss you every now and then
        C
But the hurt is for the better
        G
Moving on, it's now or never
Dm7                            Am7
Lost in the tide, I can't keep my pillows dry
               C
Like there's a sea in my eyes
      G                                   Am7
I realise that sometimes love brings you flowers
                     F
Then it builds you coffins
               C
And far too often
                  G
We end up falling to our demise


[Chorus]

          Am7                                F
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              C                        G
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Am7                                   F
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              C                    G
The river of tears has washed me clean
Dm7
Go 'head and wish me well
Am
I'll cry a wishing well
C
I'll fly before I fail
G                       Am7
I'll set sail and drift away
                       F
So I won't need you here
                         C
Love sinks and hope floats
                  G
In a river of tears

In a river of tears


[Bridge]

Am7       G           C
Cry me a river, build myself a bridge
         Dm7           F
I'm over this, can't let memories become the death of me
            Am7        G            C
I'm glad to see everything that you are
         Dm7               F
And I believe that you are everything I needed

But I don't need no more


[Chorus]

Am7                                          F
I'm going down, and you have watched me drown
              C                        G
In a river of tears, lost beneath the stream
          Am7                                   F
Under the waves, I've found the strength to say
              C                    G
The river of tears has washed me clean
Dm7
Go 'head and wish me well
Am
I'll cry a wishing well
C
I'll fly before I fail
G                       Am7
I'll set sail and drift away
                       F
So I won't need you here
                         C
Love sinks and hope floats
                  G
In a river of tears

In a river of tears







NOTE:  I couldn't quite figure out a few of the chords (The F for example) so I have gone with the basic
chords. If you do come up with something better then please do let me know and I'll stick it in! :)

If you don't like using a capo so high up, you can also move it down to the first fret and replace the chords with Dm7 A# F and C in that order :)
