Verse 1:


C                     Em                Am          Am
Just talk yourself up and tear yourself down.
C                         Em             Am          Am
You've hit your one wall, now find a way around.
C                         Em                  Am          Am
Well, what's the problem? You've got a lot of nerve.


Pre-Chorus:


C
So, what did you think I would say? 
Am                      Am
No, you can't run away, no, you can't run away.
C
So, what did you think I would say?

Chorus:


C                 Am        C                   Am
I never wanted to say this. You never wanted to stay.
C                      Am
I put my faith in you, so much faith
         Em                C
and then you just threw it away.
    F
You threw it away.


Verse 2:


C                 Em                Am          Am
I'm not so naive, my sorry eyes can see.
C                     Em             Am          Am
the way you fight shy of almost everything.
C                     Em                    Am          Am
Well, if you give up, you'll get what you deserve.


Pre-Chorus:


C
So, what did you think I would say? 
Am                      Am
No, you can't run away, no, you can't run away
C
So, what did you think I would say?

No, you can't run away, no, you can't run away
    F
You wouldn't.


Chorus:


C                 Am        C                   Am

C                      Am
I put my faith in you, so much faith
         Em                C
and then you just threw it away.
    F
You threw it away.


Bridge:

Em                C           Am          F
You were finished long before we had even seen the start.
              Am             F
Why don't you stand up, be a man about it?
Am                   F              C (let ring)
Fight with your bare hands about it now.


Chorus:


C                 Am        C                   Am
I never wanted to say this. You never wanted to stay.
C                      Am
I put my faith in you, so much faith
         Em                C
and then you just threw it away.
    F
You threw it away.


C                 Am        C                   Am
I never wanted to say this. You never wanted to stay.

and then you just threw it away.

You threw it away.

The chorus could use some work but it's pretty good besides that.
