(Original Key: F)


Intro:

Bbmaj7, D  Dmaj7  D7  D6  Daug  D

Verse 1:

D                   Dmaj7
 When by the phone, in vain you sit,
D7                      Am7               D9
 You very soon, in your mind realise that it's not just,
   Gm            C9       Dmaj7  Em7
An ordinary pain, in your heart.

Verse 2:

D                       Dmaj7
 When you by chance, go knock on her door,
D7                        Am7                    D9
 Walkin' away, you're con-vinced that it's much, more than just;
   Gm            C9       Dmaj7
An ordinary pain, in your heart.

D7sus  D7        Bb7     Gm            C9       Dmaj7  D
 It's  more than just an ordinary pain, in your heart.

Chorus 1:

Em7              D         F#m         Bm7
 Don't fool your-self; but tell no one else.
     D7sus D7        Bb7     Gm           C9        Dmaj7  D  Dmaj7  D7
That it's  more than just an ordinary pain, in your heart.

 In your heart,
D6  Daug D
 In your heart.

Verse 3:

D                       Dmaj7
 When you catch up, but she says goodbye;
D7                           Am7               D9
 Hold back your tears and be-fore you start to cry;
                Gm             C9       Dmaj  Em7
Say you feel un-necessary pain, in your heart.

Verse 4:

D                          Dmaj7
 Tell her you're glad it's over, in fact;
D7                         Am7                  D9
 Can she take with her the pain she brought you back?
            Gm            C9         Dmaj7
Takin' that ordinary pain, from your heart.

 Don't fool your-self; but tell no one else.
     D7sus D7        Bb7     Gm           C9        Dmaj7  D  Dmaj7  D7
That it's  more than just an ordinary pain, in your heart.

D6  Daug D     Dmaj7  D7
 In your heart,
D6  Daug D
 In your heart.

Interlude:

Dm7  G7 (x4)

Break:

                          Dm7  G7
You're just a masochistic fool,
Dm7          G7               Dm7   G7
 Because you knew my love was cruel.
Dm7        G7                 Dm7   G7
 You never listened when they said;
Dm7             G7              Dm7  G7
 Don't let that girl go to your head.

Dm7         G7                Dm7       G7
 But like a play boy you said no, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7          G7                   Dm7          G7
 This little girl's mind you will blow, (ordi-nary pain).
Dm7         G7               Dm7        G7
 But then I blew you out the box, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7            G7               Dm7         G7
 When I put my stuff on key and lock, (ordi-nary pain).

Dm7          G7           Dm7         G7
 It makes me feel kind of sick, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7           G7           Dm7          G7
 To know love put you in a trick, (ordi-nary pain).
Dm7         G7                 Dm7        G7
 I knew our love would have to end, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7        G7                Dm7           G7
 The day I made it with your friend, (ordi-nary pain).

Dm7          G7             Dm7         G7
 Giving your love to one un-real, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7         G7               Dm7         G7
 Like a big fool, I know you feel, (ordi-nary pain).
Dm7          G7          Dm7         G7
 But in this lovey-dovey game, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7           G7                Dm7         G7
 With all its joy there must be pain, (ordi-nary pain).

Dm7          G7              Dm7         G7
 But now the time has surely come, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7              G7                Dm7        G7
 This game don't seem like so much fun, (ordi-nary pain).
Dm7            G7            Dm7          G7
 You're cryin' big crocodile tears, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7              G7                  Dm7          G7
 Don't match the ones I've cried for years, (ordi-nary pain).

Dm7         G7               Dm7        G7
 When I was home waiting for you, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7           G7                  Dm7       G7
 You were out somewhere doing the do, (ordi-nary pain).
Dm7           G7             Dm7         G7
 You know I'd really like to stay, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7           G7              Dm7         G7
 But like you did I've got to play, (ordi-nary pain).

Dm7             G7                Dm7       G7
 You're dumb to think I'd let you be, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7               G7                 Dm7       G7
 Scott free, with-out some pain from me, (ordi-nary pain).
Dm7           G7              Dm7           G7
 I heard your song and took a chance, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7          G7            Dm7          G7
 But to your music I can't dance, (ordi-nary pain).

Dm7           G7         Dm7         G7
 Go tell your story 'sob-sad', (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7        G7               Dm7        G7
 About you blowin' what you had, (ordi-nary pain).
Dm7              G7              Dm7        G7
 Since one ain't good enough for you, (ordi-nary pain),
Dm7           G7                Dm7       G7
 Then do your-self; see how you do, (ordi-nary pain).

Coda:

Dm7    G7   Dm7        G7
 Or-di-nary pain, ordi-nary pain.
Dm7    G7   Dm7        G7
 Or-di-nary pain, ordi-nary pain.
Dm7    G7   Dm7        G7
 Or-di-nary pain, ordi-nary pain.
Dm7    G7   Dm7        G7
 Or-di-nary pain, ordi-nary pain.
