[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 (x4)


[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)

It's a matter of trust
It's always been a matter of trust 
It's a matter of trust

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