[Intro] 
Em  C  D,   Em  C  D...

[Verse 1]
G2           Bm7        Em                       D
  I will not make the same mistakes that you did
G2           Bm7  
  I will not let myself
Em                                 D
Cause my heart so much misery
G2           Bm7        Em
  I will not break the way you did,
           D
You fell so hard
G2                  Bm7         
  I've learned the hard way
     Em                  Dsus  D  
To never let it get that far

[Chorus]
             Em      
Because of you
            C                   Dsus    D  Dsus  
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
    D5     Em     
Because of you
                          C             Dsus      D   B   
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt      
            C     
Because of you
                      G/B       Dsus                   B                     
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
             Cmaj7 (or C)     
Because of you
         Dsus
I am afraid

[Verse 2]
G2          Bm7
  I lose my way
          Em                      D
And it's not too long before you point it out
G2         Bm7
  I cannot cry
      Em                           D
Because you know that's weakness in your eyes
G2             Bm7
  I'm forced to fake
    Em                  D           G2
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
                Bm7
My heart can't possibly break
         Em                   Dsus      D
When it wasn't even whole to start with

[Chorus]
           Em      
Because of you
            C                   Dsus    D  Dsus       
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
    D5      Em     
Because of you
                          C             Dsus      D   B   
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt      
              C     
Because of you
                      G/B       Dsus                   B                     
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
             Cmaj7 (or C)     
Because of you
         Dsus
I am afraid
            
[Bridge]
               Bm      
I watched you die
             Em                   Dsus      D   
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
          Bm
I was so young
                     Em                  Dsus    D
You should have known better than to lean on me
           Bm                Em
You never thought of anyone else
                Dsus   D
You just saw your pain
          B                         Em      
And now I cry in the middle of the night
          Cmaj7   Dsus  D  Dsus  D    
For the same damn thing

[Outro]
            Em
Because of you
             C                 Dsus    D  Dsus               
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
    D5      Em 
Because of you
                         C                 Dsus     D      
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
(key change A, pause)           
            F#m
Because of you
                     D             Esus   E  Esus   
I try my hardest just to forget everything
    E5      F#m
Because of you
                      D           Esus  E  C# 
I don't know how to let anyone else in
            D 
Because of you
                    A/C#              Esus  C#
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
             D
Because of you
        Esus E
I am afraid
                F#m
Because of you
        D             E
Ooh, oohhh, ohhh
                F#m   
Because of you 
         D            E   
Ooh, oohhh, ohhh
ooh
