[Verse]
                    Em                     A
I know what you're doing, I see it all to clear
   A9             C9/G                         D9/F#
I only taste the saline when I kiss away your tears.
                    Em                 A
You really had me going, wishing on a star.
     A9               C9/G                       D9/F#
The black holes that surround you are heavier by far,
                       Em                           A  
I believed in your confusion, you're so completely torn.
    A9                  C9/G                            D9/F#
It must have been that yesterday was the day that I was born.


    Em      A    A9    C9/G   D9/F#   FM9/C
e|---0------0-----0-----0-------0------8----                                  
B|---3------2-----0-----3-------3------8----
G|---0------2-----2-----0-------2------0---- 
D|---2------2-----2-----2-------0------7----
A|---2------0-----0-----3-------x------8----
E|---0------x-----x-----3-------2------8----


                      Em                      A
There's not much to examine, nothing left to hide.
    A9               C9/G                      D9/F#
You really can't be serious, to have to ask me why
       FM9/C
I say goodbye...


 
[Chorus]

    C9     G9     Am     FM9/C
e|---3------3------0------0-----                                  
B|---3------3------1------8-----
G|---0------2------2------0-----
D|---2------0------2------7-----
A|---3------X------0------8-----
E|---X------3------x------8-----

                    C9                          G9
'Cause I am barely breathing, I can't find the air,
                     Am                    FM9/C
I don't know who I'm kidding imagining you care;
                         C9                        G9
And I could stand here waiting, a fool for another day;
                     Am
I don't suppose it's worth the price, it's worth the price
     FM9/C
The price that I would pay yeah, yeah yeah. 



                Em                     A
Everyone keeps asking, "what's it all about?"
  A9             C9/G                       D9/F#
I used to be so certain, now I can't figure out.
                 Em                           A
What is this attraction, it's only filled by pain?
         A9              C9/G                   D9/F#
There's nothing left to reason and only you to blame,
              FM9/C
Will it ever change?
 
        (Repeat Chorus)


                     C9    G9                 Am   FM9/C----
But, I'm thinking it over anyway, yeah, yeah, yeah...


[Bridge:]

     D     Am     C9     Gm13     
e|---2------0------3------0-----                                  
B|---3------1------3------1-----
G|---2------2------0------3----- 
D|---0------2------2------3-----
A|---x------0------3------x-----
E|---x------x------x------3-----

D                 Am
I've come to find,  I may never know
C9                 Gm13
Your changing mind,    is it friend or foe? 


     D     Am     C9     Gm13     FM9/C
e|---2------0------3------0---------8----                                  
B|---3------1------3------1---------8----
G|---2------2------0------3---------0---- 
D|---0------2------2------3---------7----
A|---x------0------3------x---------8----
E|---x------x------x------3---------8----


D            Am
I rise above   or sink below
C9             Gm13
With every time    you come and go
                       FM9/C (pause)
Please, don't come and go...

        (Repeat Chorus)


[Outro]
                     C9    G9                 Am   FM9/C----
But, I'm thinking it over anyway, yeah, yeah, yeah...
                C9    G9                 Am   FM9/C----
I'm thinking it over anyway, yeah, yeah, yeah...
                 FM9/C  (pause)
I know what your doin', I see it all too clear...

You're welcome! I gave my best shot to this song 'cause this is one of my favorite. I hope you'll also try to check Duncan's IN THE ABSENCE OF THE SUN, & SHE RUNS AWAY. But I was too lazy to post the chords of those songs instead i post the numbered system. Thanks!
