Amazing song about Bono's relationship with his Dad. The way the verse
is played is tabbed below, and the pre-chorus, chorus and bridge are all
just strummed. At the end there is a mini-solo for over the start of the
bridge.                        ENJOY - THIS IS WHAT MUSIC IS ALL ABOUT!!

[Verse 1]

A          G/A
Tough, you think you've got the stuff

       F#/A           Dsus2
You're telling me and anyone

A
You're hard enough

A
You don't have to put up a fight

    G/A
You don't have to always be right

F#/A                    Dsus2
Let me take some of the punches

A
For you tonight


[Pre-Chorus]

D            A
Listen to me now

                  F#m
I need to let you know

                        D
You don't have to go it alone


[Chorus]

         F#m                    E
And it's you when I look in the mirror

         D
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone

F#m                 E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own


[Verse 2]

A                G/A
We fight all the time
        F#/A       Dsus2
You and I...that's alright
          A
We're the same soul
A                      G/A
I don't need...I don't need to hear you say
           F#/A       Dsus2
That if we weren't so alike
                A
You'd like me a whole lot more


[Pre-Chorus]

D            A
Listen to me now
                  F#m
I need to let you know
                        D
You don't have to go it alone


[Chorus]

         F#m                    E
And it's you when I look in the mirror
         D
And it's you when I don't pick up the phone
F#m                 E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own


[Bridge]

Fmaj7 - C - Dm
                   I know that we don't talk
Fmaj7 - C - Am
                   I'm sick of it all
Fmaj7 - C - Dm
                   Can - you - hear - me - when - I -
A                F#m
Sing, you're the reason I sing
D                 E       A
You're the reason why the opera is in me...
D
Well, hey now!
                    A
I've got to let you know
                             F#m
A house still doesn't make a home
                    D
Don't leave me here alone...


[Outro/Chorus]

         F#m                    E
And it's you when I look in the mirror
         D
And it's you that makes it hard to let go
F#m                 E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own
F#m                 E
Sometimes you can't make it
                 D
The best you can do is to fake it
F#m                 E               D
Sometimes you can't make it on your own

(Play 'A' to fade)
