Why does she sing her sad songs for me, I'm not the one
To tenderly bring her soft sympathy, I've just begun

I can lay down a tear for her pain, just a tear and that's all

What does she want me to do
She says that she knows that moments are rare
I suppose that it's true
Then on she goes to say I don't care and she

She'd like to think that I'm cruel but she knows that's a lie for I would be
No more than a tool if I allowed her to cry all over me
My sorrow is real even though I can't change my plans
If she could see how I feel then I know that she'd understand
Does she actually think I'm to blame
Does she really believe that some word of mine
Could relieve all her pain
Can't she see that she grieves just because she's been blindly deceived
By her shame
Maybe she just has to sing for the sake of the song
Who do I think that I am to decide that she's wrong

Nothin's what it seems, maybe she'll start someday to realize
If she abandons her dreams then all the words she can say are only lies
When will she see that to gain is only to lose
All that she offers me are her chains, I got to refuse
It's only to herself that she's lied
She likes to pretend there's something that she should defend with her pride
I don't intend to stand her and be the friend from whom she must hide
Maybe she just has to sing for the sake of the song
Who do I think that I am to decide that she's wrong

Great tab. Correction is just to the bar where he sings "moments are rare" and "say I don't care". You can hear him slide up from the xx0232 D chord to play the E chord as 0xx454. (He does a similar thing in Kathleen sliding up from a Dm to Em). Review and vote
