                    Dm
 So here I am once more
                            Bb    C
 In the playground of the broken hearts
             Gm                F
 One more experience, one more entry
       Em          Dm
 In a diary, self penned
                        Bb C
 Yet another emotional suicide
               A               Dm
 Overdosed on sentiments and pride

Cm                  G
 Too late to say I love you
      Cm                   G
 Too late to restage the play
   Cm            G
 Abandoning the relics
         D                  G
 In my playground of yesterday

D A F#m Bm
D A F#m Bm

      D              A
 I'm losing on the swings
      F#m           Bm
 I'm losing on the roundabouts
      D              A
 I'm losing on the swings
      F#m           Bm
 I'm losing on the roundabouts
  D                   A     
 Too much, too soon, too far to go                 ( play D then on the drums A-F#m then Bm)
  F#m            Bm           D A F#m Bm  D A F#m Bm  D A F#m Bm  D A F#m Bm 
 Too late to play the game is over 
             D A F#m Bm  D A F#m Bm  D A F#m Bm  D A F#m Bm 
 The game is over

A  D Bm  F#m  A  D A  Bm
G      A Bm        G

  A  Bm                 G
 So here I am once more
                        A   Bm          G
 In the playground of the broken hearts
 A    Bm                  G
 I'm losing on the swings
                 A  Bm         G
 I'm losing on the roundabouts
          A  Bm                G   Bm   G   Bm   G   Bm   G
 The game is over, over, over...

  Bm                G
 Yet another emotional suicide
A Bm                 G
  Overdosed on sentiments and pride
 A    Bm                  G
 I'm losing on the swings
                 A  Bm         G
 I'm losing on the roundabouts
          A  Bm    G   A Bm     G   A Bm     G   A Bm     G
 The game is over

  A   Bm              G
 Too late to say, "I love you"
  A   Bm                   G
 Too late to restage the play
             Em
 The game is over

Em Bm A F#m 
Em Bm A F#m

   Em       Bm       A           F#m
 I act the role in classic style
       Em     Bm           A           F#m
 Of a martyr carved with twisted smile
      Em       Bm    A            F#m
 To bleed the lyric for this song
      Em       Bm        A              F#m
 To write the rights to right my wrongs
    A   G          F          G
 An epitaph to a broken dream
    A    G         F            G
 To exercise this silent scream
      Em Bm A        F#m       Em Bm A F#m
 A scream    that's born from sorrow

Em Bm A F#m
Em Bm A F#m

    Em         Bm        A        F#m
 I never did write that love song
      Em         Bm               A  F#m
 The words just never seemed to flow
      Em        Bm            A               F#m
 Now sad in reflection did I gaze through perfection
       Em          Bm           A                  F#m
 And examine the shadows on the other side of the morning
       A           G            F                  G
 And examine the shadows on the other side of the morning
           A              G F          G            A             F#          E   B
 Promised wedding now awake, promised wedding now awake, awake, awake, awake,

Abm A F#m B

      Abm                                 A
 The fool escaped from paradise will look over his shoulder and cry
  F#m                             B
 Sit and chew on daffodils and struggle to answer why
          Abm                                       A
 As you grow up and leave the playground where you kissed your prince and found your frog
F#m                                   B
 Remember the jester that showed you tears
                 Abm A F#m B
 The script for tears

          Abm                            A
 So I'll hold my peace forever when you wear your bridal gown
         F#m                               B
 In the silence of my shame the mute that sang the sirens' song
           Abm      A
 Has gone solo in the game             
            F#m         B
 I've gone solo in the game   <----(at the F#m here you can play the bass notes D C# F# to get a correct sound)
                 Abm A F#m B
 But the game is over

           Abm
 Can you still say you love me?
           A
 Can you still say you love me?
           F#m               B
 Can you still say that you love me?
         Abm
 Do you love me, do you love me?
         A
 Do you love me, do you love me?
         F#m                 B
 Do you love me just as you did   <-----(same here)

           Abm
 Can you still say you love me?
           A
 Can you still say you love me?
           F#m               B
 Can you still say that you love me?
          Abm          A   F#m   B   Abm
 Just as did, just as did
         A               F#m                      B   Abm   A ...
 Do you love me? Do you love me, do you love me?
