[Verse 1]

         G                       Em
I was an island  before you came along
         C                                 D
but your boat in my sand  hand in my hand  heart in my songs
        G                     Em
I was a fighter  and I was so brave
      C                                                  D
but I lowered my sword  and you held me and swore  you'd stay stay stay


[Chorus]

   C       D       G        Em
oh I can't do this alone anymore
      C      D          G      Em
cause I'm no good on my own anymore
C                D             G                  Em
what did I do to deserve this  what did you do to me
C                  D                       G
baby come back you know I don't want to be free


[Verse 2]

        G                  Em
I was a rebel  but I had a cause
     C                                       D
'til you came to town  pushed me around  and showed me what love was
        G                         Em
I was a wolf dear  apart from the pack
        C                                          D
but you answered my cry  in the dead of the night  told me that you had my back


[Chorus]

   C       D       G        Em
oh I can't do this alone anymore
      C      D          G      Em
cause I'm no good on my own anymore
C                D             G                  Em
what did I do to deserve this  what did you do to me
C                  D                       G
baby come back you know I don't want to be free

[Chorus]

   C       D       G         Em
oh I can't do this alone anymore
      C      D          G      Em
cause I'm no good on my own anymore
C                D             G                  Em
what did I do to deserve this  what did you do to me
C                  D                       Em
baby come back you know I don't want to be free
C                  D                       Em
baby come back you know I don't want to be free  no  no  no
C                  D                       G
