Sometimes it Be That Way
      G                           D
   Night with its shattered teeth attempts to speak
         C                         G                          *G*
   My pen is present but courage left via the sink
         G                                D
   And I'm sorry I snuck up on you from behind
            C                      G           
   I'm sorry not all my love letters did rhyme
       D                              G
   And I'm sorry that Jesus died for my sins
             D                              G
   And I swear to God it won't happen again
           D                                                    D                          C   C
   And I'm sorry if it was my swerve that tempted you to sway
           D              G             G
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way
           D                              C
   And Romeo was a very nice man
             G           G                        G          G
   He said "Jewel, I don't think you quite understand" 
          D                                           C
   And I'm sorry if you had to explain it like this
                  G                                       D
   I'm sorry I was a point you were destined to miss
               G                               D
   And I'm sorry I spoke to you irreverently
               G                                 D
   Down in the hollow by the old olive tree
           D                                         C                C
   And I'm sorry if my heart breaking ruined your day 
     D  D        G               G
   Oh well, sometimes It be that way
   
   Chorus:
                    D/A            G   
       I said "Oh well, I got nothing left to sell
                     D/A                 G
       This love was a bell that rang unheard in the air
                     D/A                 G               A         A
       I was bound to find out that you didn't care
          D     D         G          G
       Oh well, sometimes it be that way
        G                             D
   And Aphrodite with her neon lamp
          C                                  G
  Kissed Neptune they put her face on a stamp
           G                                        D
   And I'm sorry I used it to mail a letter to you
                    C                                G
   I'm sorry I'm glue and the rest bounces off of you
            D                           G
   And I'm sorry not even this jet's metal wings
          D                            G
   Could get across these simple things
             D                      D                       C
   And I'm sorry if I ever sang your name in vain
      D      D        G             G
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way
           D                         C
   And Goldilocks, well she knew three bears
             G           G               GG*      GG*
   They all ate oatmeal and tiptoed upstairs
           D                              C
   And I'm sorry I never got to find you like this
             G                           D
   Sleeping like a baby and swaddled in bliss
         G                         D
   And I'm sorry for all the times
              G                                   D
   I forgot to imply something in between the lines
         D                  C                     C
   And i'm sorry if my heart breaking ruined your day
      D      D          G            G
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way
   
   Chorus:
       I said "Oh well, I got nothing left to sell
       This love was a bell that rang unheard in the air
       I was bound to find out that you didn't care
       Oh well, sometimes it be that way
         G                                            D
   And shadow's long fingers they dance on the wall
         C                           G
   Electricity chases its tail in the hall
           G                                     D
   And I'm sorry if my arms to you were just empty rooms
            C                        G
   I'm sorry I never could comfort you


           D                                        G
 And I'm sorry St. Petersburg is a miserable town-
              D                       G
   And I'm sorry if I am bringing you down
            D    D                             C   
   And I'm sorry if I caused you pain
      C    D  D      G         G
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way
         G                                        D
   And flame licks the air with its silver tongue
          C                                G
   Night has many hands but I have just one
            G                                      D
   And I'm sorry I walked in on you unexpectedly
               C                              G
   I'm sorry I never served you Camomile tea
          D                                 G
   And I'm sorry I didn't always have a match
           D                                               G
   That could start a fire big enough for your heart to catch
               D                     D                                        C
   And I'm sorry if it was my swerve that tempted you to sway
   C   D     D       G                  *G*
   Oh well, sometimes it be that way

The chords don't really match the text do they? I was just wondering since some of the chords are way out to the right far from the text :)
