[A] Don't stray
Don't [C#m] ever go away
I [D] should be much too smart for this
You [Bm] know it get's the better of me

[A] some  -  times
When [C#m] you and I collide
I [D] fall into an ocean of you
[Bm] Pull me out in time

Don't let me [F#m] drown
let me [C#m] down
I say it's [D] all because of you

And here [A] I go
[C#m] losing my control
I'm [D] practising your name
so I can [Bm] say it
to your face

It doesn't [A] seem right
To [C#m] look you in the eye
Let [D] all the things you mean to me
come [Bm] tumbling out my mouth

Indeed it's [F#m] time
to tell you [C#m] why
I say it's [D] infinitely true

[A] Say you'll [E] stay
Don't come and [F#m] go
like you do [E7]

[A] Sway my [E] way
Yeah I need to [F#m] know
all about [E7] you

And there's [A] no cure
and [C#m] no way to be sure
why [D] everything's turned inside out
we're [Bm] still in so much doubt

it makes me [A] so tired
I [C#m] feel so uninspired
my [D] head is battling with my heart
my [Bm] logic has been torn apart

and [F#m] now
it all turns [C#m] sour
'cause we sing [D] every afternoon

It's [C#m] all because of you [E]
It's [C#m] all because of you

Use a E or E7 instead of the Bm on the first part and in similar parts, it sounds a bit off!

Actually, use Dm instead of Bm. So, it goes from the D to a Dm. No Bm in the song. Also during the chorus, try an A5 instead of A. That's a first position A chord except the B sting is open rather than fretted on the 2nd fret.

when playing the song the way ^^myannon^^ suggested how it could sound better, use the D chord (not the D on the fifth fret/the bar chord) instead of the E7...
