[Intro]
Dm  Bb  F  F  x2

[Verse]
Dm                Bb                  F
  Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry
                                Dm
You don't know how lovely you are
           Bb                   F
I had to find you, tell you I need you
                       Dm
Tell you I set you apart
                 Bb                     F
Tell me your secrets, and ask me your questions
                           Dm
Oh let's go back to the start
              Bb                F
Running in circles, coming up tails
                      Bb
Heads on a science apart

[Chorus]
Bb                     F
  Nobody said it was easy
                               Bb
It's such a shame for us to part
                      Dm
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said that it would be this hard
F
Oh take me back to the start

[Interlude]
F  Bb  F  F

[Verse]
Dm                     Bb                  F
  Now I was just guessing at numbers and figures
                              Dm
I was pulling the puzzles apart
                    Bb                   F
But questions of science, science and progress
                              Dm
Do not speak as loud as my heart
                   Bb                    F
So come back and haunt me, tell me you love me,
          Bb            F
Oh and I rush to the start
Dm             Bb                   F
 Running in circles, chasing our tails
Dm       Bb         F
 Coming back as we are

[Chorus]
Bb                     F
  Nobody said it was easy
                              Bb
It's such a shame for us to part
                     F
Nobody said it was easy
                                         Bb
No one ever said that it would be this hard
                          F
I'm going back to the start

[Interlude]
F  Bb  F  F
Dm Bb  F  F

[Outro]
Dm  Bb F  F  (Repeat until end)
Ah Oooooooo
