[A] I'm trying to fi-[E]-gure this out,
[A] find out whe-[E]-re my place is.
[A] I don't need to [E] threaten anyone,
[A] there's no need to [E] get so defensive.

[A] You say you're [E]with me, I know you don't [A]care.
You say you're [E]with me, I know you don't [A]care...

[A] I guess it's re-[E]-al simple,
[A] it's just like what [E] Gary Newman said,
[A] "You're just a view-[E]-er, cold and distant.
[A] You are just busi-[E]-ness, you're worthless now."

[A] You say you're [E]with me, I know you don't [A]care.
You say you're [E]with me, I know you don't [A]care...

Chorus:
[D] [E2]Sweet-[A]-ness (ohh, sweetness),
[E] All I want [D]is tenderness (ten-der-ness)
[D] [E2]Sweet-[A]-ness (ohh, sweetness),
[E] A little love...

and tenderness...

[A]  [E]  x2

[A] Or maybe it's [E] just like Judas say,
[A] I've been your right-[E]-hand man all along.
[A] My admira-[E]-tion for you hasn't died,
[A] I haven't for-[E]-gotten how put down we are.

[A] You say you're [E]with me, I know you don't [A]care.
You say you're [E]with me, I know you don't care...

Chorus:
[D] [E2]Sweet-[A]-ness (ohh, sweetness),
[E] All I want [D]is tenderness (ten-der-ness)
[D] [E2]Sweet-[A]-ness (ohh, sweetness),
[E] A little love and [D] tenderness, oh yeah

[D] Come [E2} away with [A]me,
Come away with [E]me,
Sweet-[D]-ness
[D] Come [E2] away with [A] me,
We can hide in [E]peace,
And we can fi-[D]-nally rest.

(Piano/Acoustic Interlude)

[A]  [E] x A Lot Played over "Ooh's

[A] This melody's [E]wrong, and I do [A]care.
This melody's [E]wrong, yes, I [A]care.
