listen to the song first and hear where which chord goes where.

Never underestimate the power of your ear


Capo 1


[Verse 1]

G             Bm            Em                        D
I will not make the same mistakes that you did
G            Bm
I will not let myself
Em                                 D
Cause my heart so much misery
G          Bm        Em
I will not break the way you did,
          C
You fell so hard
G                      Bm     
I've learned the hard way
        Em                    D
To never let it get that far


[Chorus]

           Em
Because of you
           C                                D
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
           Em
Because of you
                           C               D
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
B7         Am7
Because of you
                     G/B            D             B/D#      
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
           C
Because of you
         D
I am afraid


[Verse 2]

G             D
I lose my way
            Em                D                       G
And it's not too long before you point it out
              D
I cannot cry
Em                                D                        G
Because you know that's weakness in your eyes
                   D
I'm forced to fake
    Em                  D                  G
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
                       D
My heart can't possibly break
              C                          D
When it wasn't even whole to start with


[Chorus]

           Em
Because of you
           C                                D
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
           Em
Because of you
                           C               D
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
B7         Am7
Because of you
                     G/B            D             B/D#      
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
           C
Because of you
         D
I am afraid


[Verse 3]

              Bm
I watched you die
            Em                     D
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
          Bm
I was so young
                Em                   D
You should have known better than to lean on me
          Bm                Em
You never thought of anyone else
             D
You just saw your pain
           Bm                      Em
And now I cry in the middle of the night
       D
For the same damn thing


[Chorus]

           Em
Because of you
           C                                D
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
           Em
Because of you
                           C               D
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt

           F#m
Because of you
                 D                 E
I try my hardest just to forget everything
           F#m
Because of you
              D                    E
I don't know how to let anyone else in
C#7        Bm
Because of you
                  A/C#              E
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
C#7        D
Because of you
        E
I am afraid
           F#m  D E
Because of you
           F#m  D E
Because of you

Cord placement is off a bit, and from the acoustic version that I listen to, I think you should capo in 1. Other than that it is a good starting point.
