  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva


Chorus
What goes on in your heart?
What goes on in your mind?
You are tearing me apart
When you treat me so unkind
What goes on in your mind
Verse
The other day I saw you
As I walked along the road
But when I saw him with you
I could feel my future fold
It's so easy for a girl like you to lie
Tell me why

Chorus

Verse
I met you in the morning
waiting for the tides of time
But now the tide is turning
I can see that I was blind
It's so easy for a girl like you to lie
Tell me why
What goes on in your heart?

Solo

I used to think of no on else
But you were just the same
You didn't even think of me
As someone with a name
Did you mean to break my heart and watch me die
Tell me why

Chorus
In your mind
In your mind

Actually, this song is Lennon/McCanrtey/Starkey

But thanks for all these great tabs of yours. (Especially The Beatles's)
