[Verse 1]
                             
If you’d asked me eighteen months ago

    Bdim/F
I’m sure I would have married you

        C/E             F
And I’m not the kind of girl 

            G
To give her heart away

          Bb        Am   G
But you’d had it so long anyway

If I met myself ten years ago

    G/F
I’d find a way to let her know

    C          F             G
How absolutely perfect she already was

That she shouldn’t try to change herself

G/F
Just to please somebody else

         C               F   
That she doesn’t need to do the things

    G
She thinks she does

I would tell her not to spend her life

       G/F
Trying so damn hard to make things right

     C
When what was wrong 

    F               G
Was too far gone to start with

That her love for him was very real

         G/F
But it’s something he would never feel

          C                 F
That he’s not the man she’s meant
             G
To share her heart with

I would do my best to tell her how

       G/F
Things look so very different now

     C                 F               G
That I’ve moved on and time has gone by

That she’d see how far apart they’d grown

           G/F 
That she’d be all right out on her own

     C                 F                 G
That one day she would find her wings and fly

Bb/G  Am/G  G  Bb/G  Am/G  G  


[Verse 2]

I know things now I didn’t then

        G/A
Though I couldn’t tell you where or when

  G/B 
I learned to tell the difference

        Dm             C
Between loving you and wanting you 

    G/B          G
And needing you

I traded who I was

              G/A
For someone I thought you would love

           G/B
For just a fraction of myself

         Dm                  C
I wasn’t whole, I starved my soul

            G/B          G
For want of feeding you

We’re attached but not connected

         G/A
And each time I’ve been rejected

       G/B
I have lost a little, cried a little

Dm             C            G/B         G
Tried a little harder to be good enough

I’ve been playing house with no one home

G/A 
Living with you all alone

     G/B
With nothing left to call my own

  Dm             C
I gave you all I had

              G/B        G
And it wasn’t good enough, no

Bb/G  Am/G  G  Bb/G  Am/G  G  Fadd2  

[Verse 3]

                          Cadd6  Fadd2/D 
You only want me when I’m broken

                          Am7  Am7/G  Fadd2  
You only need me when I’m weak

                               Cadd6  Fadd2/D
And all the words you’ve never spoken

                           Gadd2
Say more than I could ever speak 

Bb/G  Am/G  G  Bb/G  Am/G  G  G/F#


[Chorus]

    Em   D/F# G          D      C
But, I’ll hold on to whatever I can

   D       Em          D        B/D#  Em
Anything’s better than nothing, right

     D/F# G          D         C
I’ll hold on for whatever it’s worth

             D   Em
For whatever I’m worth

           Fadd2  F  Fadd2
And that’s nothing


[Verse 4]

                        Cadd6  Fadd2/D
I am beside myself with grief

                          Am7  Am7/G  Fadd2
You are beside me but not with me

                             Cadd6  Fadd2/D
I search my heart for some release

                        Gadd2
I wonder if you’ll even miss me

A/G  D/G  G

A/G  D/G  G

Gadd2/F#  Gadd2/E  D


[Bridge]
             C           G
I know I’m a complicated woman

      D                  C      A     D
And I know you won’t ever  understand

                 C
You say that you love me

       G                  D
When I think that we both know

                   C       A
You don’t know just  who I am

A  D/A  G/A  A  D/A  G/A  A

  D/A     G/A                 A  D/A  G/A  A
I look at all that’s done and said

  D/A     G/A           A  D/A  G/A  A  D/A  G/A  A/G
I see the point of no return

  D/G     G              A/G  A/D  G  A/G
I think before I come to bed

    D/G    G              Esus          E
That I had better come to terms with it

         Bm  A    F#m  E  B   E
That the har-dest part of all

            Bm     A  F#m
Is that you really do love me

        Bm  A    F#m
In your way  you love me

                  B
But not the way I need

E          Bm   A  F#m  E  B     E
And I only have my-self to blame

          Bm  A    F#m E  B               E
I’ve been hol-ding on  to what will never be

                Bm A    F#m E   B    E
And things will al-ways be  the same

      Bm     A  F#m 
Just another variation 

E     D            B
On an old familiar theme


[Chorus]

Em  D/F#  G  D  C  D  Em  D  B/D#  

Em  D/F#  G  D  C  D  Em  G  Gsus  G


[Coda]
       
Eb     Bb        F         C   
I held on for as long as I could

          Eb           Bb          G
I thought anything was better than nothing

Eb     Bb     F              C
I held on for all that I was worth

       Eb                  Bb          G
For so long I thought that I was worth nothing

    Bb/G  Am/G   G   Bb/G  Am/G  G
But  I    held   on,  I    held  on, 

Bb/G  Am/G   G   Bb/G  Am/G   G
 I    held   on,  I    held   on

          Dm/G  C/G  G
I have to find  my   way

         Dm/G    C/G       G
Tightrope    jump, seasons change

          Dm/G  C/G  G      
I held on so         long, 

          Dm/G   C/G  G
Why I will    never   know

                Dm/G  C/G  G
I love you with all   my   heart

             Bb     Am  G
But I have to  let you  go


[Outro]

Bb  Am  G  Bb  Am  G
