[VERSE]

F#m
I play out my role
    Bm
Why I've even been out walking
F#m
They tell me that it helps
    Bm
But I know when I'm beaten

F#m  Bm
//// ////

F#m
All those lonely films
    Bm
And all those lonely parties
F#m
But now the feeling is off-screen
    Bm
An' the tears for real not acted, anymore

F#m  Bm
//// ////

F#m
I'm all mixed up inside
  Bm
I want to run but I can't hide
F#m
And however much we try
   Bm
We can't escape the truth and the fact is


[CHORUS]

      D
Don't matter what I do
         G
It don't matter what I do
      D
Don't matter what I do
      G
Don't matter what I do
      D
Don't matter what I do
         G      A          D
'Cause I end up hurting you


[INTERLUDE]

F#m  Bm     x2
//// ////

[VERSE]

F#m
One more covered sigh
    Bm
And one more glance you know means goodbye
F#m
Can't you see that's why
      Bm
We're dashing ourselves against the rocks of a lifetime

[CHORUS]

     D
Don't matter what I do
         G
It don't matter what I do
      D
Don't matter what I do
      G
Don't matter what I do
      D
Don't matter what I do
         G      A        Fmaj7   Cmaj7  
'Cause I end up hurting you

[BRIDGE]

Fmaj7
(In my mind different voices call)
Cmaj7
What once was pleasure now's pain for us all
Fmaj7
(In my heart only shadows fall)
Cmaj7
I once stood proud now I feel so small
Fmaj7
(I don't know whether to laugh or cry)
G/A
The long hot summer just passed me by 

[INTERLUDE]

Dmaj7 Em7    x2
