Enjoy!



- Intro: C



- Verse 1:


         C                       Am
I was an island, before you came along
         F                                           G
Put your boat in my sand, your hand in my hand, your heart in my songs


        C                     Am
I was a fighter, and I was so brave
      F                                                   G
But I lowered my sword, when you held me and swore, you'd stay stay stay



- Chorus:


   F       G       C     G/B Am
Oh I can't do this alone anymore
       F      G          C   G/B Am
'Cause I'm no good on my own anymore


F                G             C            G/B  Am
what did I do to deserve this? what did you do to me?
F                    G                       C
Baby, come back, you know I don't want to be free



- Verse 2:

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



- Chorus:


   F       G       C     G/B Am
Oh I can't do this alone anymore
       F      G          C   G/B Am
'Cause I'm no good on my own anymore


F                G             C            G/B  Am
what did I do to deserve this? what did you do to me?
F                    G                       C
Baby, come back, you know I don't want to be free



- Solo:

C  Am  F  G
C  Am  F  G



- Chorus:


   F       G       C     G/B Am
Oh I can't do this alone anymore
       F      G          C   G/B Am
'Cause I'm no good on my own anymore


F                G             C            G/B  Am
what did I do to deserve this? what did you do to me?
F                    G                     Am
Baby, come back, you know I don't want to be free
F                  G                       Am
Baby, come back, you know I don't want to be free,  no, no, no
F                  G                       C
Baby, come back, you know I don't want to be free

- Intro: F#m



- Verse 1:

F#m
lately when I wake up
                                       B
all the numbers on my clock are new to me.
                  F#m
I gotta get more sleep.
F#m
I stay up late nights wasting my time,
                                 B
planning out how I can make you see
                     F#m
just what you really need.



- Chorus:

  D#m              C#          B          F#m
A stomach full of worry never got me very far.
  D#m                 C#               B          F#m
I’ll drive out my frustration in this godforsaken car.
  D#m            C#
Somewhere deep inside of me
   B                 F#m           B
I know that you were part of the problem,
   C#
but I still want you.
 D#m  C#  B  F#m        D#m  C#  B  F#m
Nooooooooooooooo, don’t goooooooooooooo.



- Verse 2:

F#m
I know it’s not healthy but
                                  B
I’m kind of getting used to being sick.
                          F#m
They don’t make cures for this.
F#m
I’ll always be your backup plan,
F#m
silver medal, though I ran
      B                              F#m
the hardest and the farthest of them all.



- Chorus:

  D#m              C#          B          F#m
A stomach full of worry never got me very far.
  D#m                 C#               B          F#m
I’ll drive out my frustration in this godforsaken car.
  D#m            C#
Somewhere deep inside of me
   B                 F#m           B
I know that you were part of the problem,
   C#
but I still want you.
 D#m  C#  B  F#m        D#m  C#  B  F#m
Nooooooooooooooo, don’t goooooooooooooo.
 D#m  C#  B  F#m        D#m  C#  B  F#m
Nooooooooooooooo, don’t goooooooooooooo.
      D#m  C#  B  F#m
don’t go.



- Bridge:

B                                F#m      C#
And I can always count on you to count me out.
B                                 F#m   C#
Another broken heart that I could do without.
B                                 F#m  C#
I know I’ll never be the one that you adore.
B
I’ll turn around
B
and stand my ground
C#
and settle down
C#
and settle for



- Chorus:

  D#m              C#          B          F#m
A stomach full of worry never got me very far.
  D#m                 C#               B          F#m
I’ll drive out my frustration in this godforsaken car.
  D#m            C#
Somewhere deep inside of me
   B                 F#m           B
I know that you were part of the problem,
   C#                 D#m
but I still want you.
 D#m  C#  B  F#m        D#m  C#  B  F#m
Sooooooooooooooo, don’t goooooooooooooo.
      D#m  C#  B  F#m
Don’t goooooooooooooo.
     D#m   C# B
don’t go.

G                 Bm           Cadd9             G
I'm not a mystery everything I think is written down
Bm               Cadd9         G
keeping me from keeping you around
Bm             Cadd9         G      Bm   Cadd9
can't keep my feet on the ground


               G           Bm         Cadd9    G
and there's a million ways I can mess it up I always do
Bm           Cadd9        G
making plans and making them too soon
Bm           Cadd9              G    Bm   Cadd9
I can't make much sense out of you



- Chorus:

Cadd9      D            G                Em7
why bother, Cause I'd rather call it off than wait for it to work

and there's a price to pay for doing what I do but I can't stop
  Bm           Cadd9             G
I open up my heart like it's my job
  Bm                Cadd9        G        Bm   Cadd9
I tell myself it's over but it's not


             G              Bm            Cadd9                  G
I've got a running list of all the times I've tried to break my fall
    Bm                  Cadd9                 G
and all the times I've wished that you would call
    Bm                  Cadd9            G        Bm   Cadd9
and all the times I've wished for you at all

Cadd9      D            G                Em7
why bother, Cause I'd rather call it off than wait for it to work

and why bother, Cause I bet you're better off with some other hopeless jerk
Cadd9   D        G         Em7
  and I like you, but what can I do
