Bon Jovi ? Real Life

Alright, well the recording I?ve got of this sounds to be tuned between E and Eb, which just makes things 
but it does work.  The first chord is a D, so tune your guitar?s D string  down to the D on that first 
of the recording.

Intro:

      A                           E                      F#m                        D

Verse: |:  A  |  E  |  F#m  |  D :|

I wish life was like it is in the movies
Cos? the hero always gets his way
No matter how hard it gets on that dark lonely road
At the end, he?s got a smile on his face

But when they threw me out to the lions

	            A 		                        E

No one saved me as I fell from your grace

	F#/G                                       D

And no one wrote me new lines of what I said wrong

And what I did wrong I could not erase

Chorus ?the same as the intro, with vocals.

              A                         E
This is real life, this is real love
         F#/G                     D
This is real pain,  that much I?m sure of
	A		E	D
This  are real tears, this is real fear inside
             E
That I can?t hide

|  D  |  D  | - On the link between the chorus and the verse here, it sounds like Richie is using a
                    whammy bar or pedal over the chord, but it sounds like he?s playing a ?D? chord.

Verse
            A                                                     E
I wish I could be your white night in armour
	 F#/G                                           D
With an honour just to bring you back home
	A			             E
But I?ll admit I?m scared of dialing your number

  A                                  E
Why can?t it be like it is on TV?
                     F#/G                                         D

Bridge
G		                 Bm
I always thought that our love
             D            A
Was a story for two
E                    F#/G          G
God knows that I?d never dream

In the end? it would stand.
