D   A    Bm     D
See saw, up and down
 Bm        D        Asus4 A D A
Around and round we go
D   A          Bm         D
Too late we're out on the rink
    Bm            D         Asus4 A D A
Our love's in the sink once more.

C#5                          F#5
 And when I'm walking down a rainy street
B5                         E5
 I think I hear you coming up to me
A5                D5         E5         Asus4 A D A
 But it's just an echo I've arranged to meet

D   A           Bm        D
Freefall, we're out of control
   Bm         D              Asus4 A D A
We never will know what went wrong
D   A            Bm        D
Too bad, what we had for a while
    Bm          D          Asus4 A D A
Has gone out of style this year

C#5                             F#5
 Your friends told me you moved out of town
B5                        E5
 I got your address and I wrote it down
A5                       D5            E5
 I used the pen that you bought for my birthday

B                          C
 And every suit you know reminded me of you
B                     C                  Asus4 A D A
 I realised that we'd never be together again

D A Bm D Bm D Asus4 A D A

D5 (fig.1)
Wait a while, reclaim your loss

But it costs a lot your love

D    A          Bm       D
Take five, your heels in time             (this verse
       Bm        D         Asus4 A         with fig.3)
You'll feel just fine they say

D       A
But I'm feeling

D   A         Bm      D
See saw, in a way I'm glad
         Bm         D         Asus4 A D A
Though I still feel sad about you

C#5                       F#5
 I know it's too late for changing minds
B5                        E5
 And I'm still not sure I wanna change mine
A5                          D5
 It's just a tiny part that sits there
E5         Asus4 A D A
This ain't right (?)

D   A    Bm     D
See saw, up and down
 Bm        D
Around and round
         Bm       D
They say heels in time
                Bm        D
They say you'll feel just fine
     Bm      D
In a way I'm glad
         Bm         D
Though I still feel sad
      Bm A   D
About losing you
      Bm A   D
'Bout losing you
      Bm A   D
'Bout losing you
      Bm A   G   F#m  D
'Bout losing you once more
