Verse 1:
F#                                            B
  Just talk yourself up And tear yourself down
F#                                              B
  You've hit your one wall Now find a way around
F#                        G#m                       Ebm--C#
  Well what's the problem? You've got a lot of nerve


Refrain:
   Ebm                      Bbm
So what'd you think I would say?
                  B                      C#
No you can't run away, no you can't run away
   Ebm                        C#/F
So what did you think I would say?
                  F#                     G#m
No you can't run away, no you can't run away
You wouldn't


Chorus:
B         C#        Ebm
  I never wanted to say this
B           F#         C#
  You never wanted to stay
B          C#            Ebm
  I put my faith in you, so much faith
         B        C#        F#  C#
And then you just threw it away


(Repeat Intro once only)
You threw it away


Verse 2:
F#                                      B
  I'm not so naive My sorry eyes can see
F#                                        B
  The way you fly shy Of almost everything
F#                    G#m                         Ebm--C#--
  Well, if you give up You'll get what you deserve


(Repeat Refrain and Chorus)


Bridge: Bass lines
You were finished long before
We had even seen the start
Why don't you stand up, be a man about it?
                                    F#(hold)
Fight with your bare hands about it now


Bass lines:
G|--------4-3-1-----------4-3-1---|
D|-1--3-4-------4-0-1-3-4-------4-|
A|--------------------------------| (x2)
E|--------------------------------|

Guitar 2: at "Why don't you stop...", your
fingers must be VERY FAST in this part
Josh Farro did a SEMI SWEEPING here,
it's difficult at first but once you
master this part, it's easy as 1,2,3.

B           F#         C#
  You never wanted to stay
B          C#            Ebm
  I put my faith in you, so much faith
         B        C#        F#
And then you just threw it away
B         C#        Ebm
  I never wanted to say this
B           F#         C#
  You never wanted to stay

         B        C#        F#
