	Like you always do

	     E          A         B       E

	But it's just so hard to do 
	 E             Am                E      [1: B   2: to bridge]
	Every time you do that thing you do

Verse 2:

	And I'm gonna find a way to let you know that

	And keep you here with me

	Around with someone new
	       E                  Am
	And if I know you you're doin' that thing

Coda:

	 E              Am
