  D      Bm                          2x 


Verse 1
 D                   Bm 
Some love is just a lie of the heart 
D                         Bm                      F#m                                    
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
                             A7
And they may not want it to end
                                       D
But it will, it's just a question of when


Verse 2
D                       Bm
I've lived long enough to have learned
D                          Bm                     F#m 
The closer you get to the fire the more you get burned
                         A7
But that won't happen to us
                                      D
Because it's always been a matter of trust 


---Instrumental Break--- same as intro  


Verse 3
D                 Bm
I know you're an emotional girl
D                        Bm                            F#m
It took a lot for you to not lose your faith in this world
                   A7
I can't offer you proof
                                   D
But you're gonna face a moment of truth


Verse 4
D                       Bm
It's hard when you're always afraid
D                      Bm                   F#m
You just recover when another belief is betrayed
                         A7
So break my heart if you must
                   
It's a matter of trust 


Bridge 1
 Em          
You can't go the distance
     F#m  
With too much resistance
   Em              A
I know you have doubts                   
          F#m                      G G G G-A  A   
But for God's sake don't shut me out 


Verse 5
D                      Bm
This time you've got nothing to lose
D                         Bm                    F#m
You can take it, you can leave it whatever you choose
                     A7
I won't hold back anything
                                D
And I'll walk away a fool or a king


Verse 6
D                    Bm
Some love is just a lie of the mind
D                             Bm               F#m
It's make believe until it's only a matter of time
                                A7
And some might have learned to adjust
                                    D
But then it never was a matter of trust 


----Instrumental break---- variation of intro lead, but 4x instead of 2x 
Rhythm: D  Bm  4x


Bridge 2
  Em
I'm sure you're aware love
       F#m                  Em              A
We've both had our share of believing too long
                                      
          F#m                     G G G G-A A
When the whole situation was wrong 


Verse 7
D                    Bm
Some love is just a lie of the soul
D                           Bm               F#m
A constant battle for the ultimate state of control
                            A7
After you've heard lie upon lie
                                   D
There can hardly be a question of why


Verse 8
D                   Bm
Some love is just a lie of the heart
D                         Bm                       F#m
The cold remains of what began with a passionate start
                         A7
But that can't happen to us
                                      D
'Cause it's always been a matter of trust 


Outro

Play Intro (slightly varies) over and over (Fades out after 6x)

On the second instrumental the verse chords are played staying with the A7 at the end before they go back to the bridge Em
