Break Your Heart - Barenaked Ladies

       G               Bm
The bravest thing I've ever done

       C             D
Was to run away and hide

              G    Bm           C    D
But not this time, not this time

        G                  Bm
And the weakest thing I've ever done

       C                   D
Was to stay right by your side

                G   Bm           C   D
Just like this time and every time

Em                         C                 D
I couldn't tell you I was happy you were gone

     Am                                                D
So I lied and said that I missed you when we were apart

Em                       C                D
I couldn't tell you so I had to lead you on

      C              D                G       Bm  C  D
But I didn't mean to break your heart.
       G               Bm
And if I always seemed distracted,

C                            D
Like my mind is somewhere else

          G              Bm            C    D
That's because it's true, yes it's true

         G                Bm
It's the stupid pride that makes me feel

       C                  D
Like I have to follow through

     G            Bm          C  D
Even half-assedly, loving you

Em                         C                D
Why must I always speak in terms of cowardice?

When I guess I should have just come out and told

you right from the start

Em                        C              D
Why must I always tell you all I want is this?

                C              D          G
I guess cause I didn't want to break your heart.

And you said

What'd  you think I that I was gonna do?

Curl up and die just because of you?

I'm not that weak, you know

What'd you think that I was gonna do?

Try to make you love me as much as I love you?

D                     G
How could you be so low?

G           Bm
You arrogant man,

C                       D
What do you think that I am?

Em                C   D
My heart will be fine

Just stop wasting my time

          G              Bm
And now I know that you will be okay

C                      D
And that I got what I want

           G                Bm
And that's rid of you

         C      D

        G                 Bm
And its not cause I'll be missing you

C                   D
That makes me fall apart

                 C               D
It's just that I didn't mean to break

      C              D
No, I didn't mean to break

      C              D
No, I didn't mean to break

        G        Bm      C      D
Your heart

        G        Bm      C      D
Your heart

Brilliant. Neighbours can probably hear me singing along with this. Thank you for that.

When I play in my backyard, I'm not sure if my neighbors are lurking around because I'm good or because they think I'm awful! Thanks for the great tab!
