B     B/A         G#m
Saw a girl that I used to know
      B       B/A            G#m
I was deep in thought at the time
B                    G#m
Didn't recognize her face at first
             B      B/A        G#m
'Cos I was probably looking at mine

Yeah well she was the only girl I've ever loved
       B            B/A        G#m
But my folks didn't dig her so much
        F#          E
I was young, it was serious
       F#             E
And to me she was the world (she was my world now)
F#                   E                      F#
I thought I'd never live without her but
I got by in time
Well let me tell ya now

B       B/A        G#m
I saw a guy that I used to know
B        B/A        G#m
Man he's changed so much
B          B/A         G#m
I think it hurt him to say hello
   B      B/A        G#m
He hardly opened his mouth

Yeah well he was my best friend a few years ago
B     B/A     G#m
Truly inseparable
        F#                 E
We were young (young), and full of ideas,
        F#              E
We were gonna rule this whole world
F#                       E
But something happened I didn't know why
    F#                          G#m
And well that's the way that it goes

I suppose
C#m           D#m
What you say, what you do
           B                  B7
Don't mean nothing (nothing) (nothing at all) yeah
C#m                   D#m
And all the bonds you make between
       B                  B7
Can be broken anytime you want, now

D#                      G#m
Please tell me if my philosophy's wrong
     D#              G#m
I've got to know the truth
E               B
I don't mean to fail anyone but
C#m                       F#             B
You know it's somethin' I do o-o-oh

   B/A     G#m
So nice to see you tonight
       B   B/A           G#m             B
And I'm so glad that you came
    B/A                 G#m
I'm sure the people all standing outside say
B     B/A      G#m
'Sure feel the same'

Yeah my point is in a roundabout way
   B             B/A    G#m
In time you will always forget
         F#                           E
'Cos the memories (memories) that are shouting me on
   F#              E
To me they're everything (they're everything now)
F#                 E
I know they always will be mine
    F#                    G#m
And no-one can take them away

B  B/A  G#m  G#m/F# (x4) F# B
