Verse 1
C               Dm7     Em7
 Today is your wedding day 
F                         F/G
 That's a beautiful thing
C              Dm7  Em7
 No use in me going into 
     F                   G#dim7
The way things used to be

     Pre-Chorus
            Am
     How I cared for you
          E7
     You cared for me 
               C7                 D7
     And that wasn't that long ago
  
                  Dm7
     But I can't help but smile 
                  Em7'
     As you walk down the aisle
              F/G
     'Cause there's one thing I know, hey-hey

     Chorus
     C                Dm7      Em7      F
     Every time you close your eyes at night
                           F/G
     You know inside your heart 
                           C
     That something ain't right
                             Dm7
     And things are not the way 
               Em7             F
     That you wish they could be
                              F/G
     Even though you're with him
                                   C
     I know you're thinkin' 'bout me
     Dm7              Em7           F   F/G
      I know you're thinkin' 'bout me, yeah

Verse 2
C                      Dm7 Em7
 I know you think it's ea_sier 
F                  F/G
 To lie to yourself
C                     Dm7    Em7
 Even got yourself believing 
              F                      G#dim7
You're better off with somebody else

     Pre-Chorus
             Am              E7
     So you sacrifice for security
                    C7
     'Cause your impatient self 
                   D7
     Didn't wanna wait for me
              Dm7
     And you settle for 
                        Em7'
     The first thing through the door
                F/G
     When you know what you want is me

     Chorus
     C                Dm7      Em7      F
     Every time you close your eyes at night
                           F/G
     You know inside your heart 
                           C
     That something ain't right
                             Dm7
     And things are not the way 
               Em7             F
     That you wish they could be
                              F/G
     Even though you're with him
                                   C
     I know you're thinkin' 'bout me
     Dm7              Em7           F   F/G
      I know you're thinkin' 'bout me, yeah
Bridge
G#dim7
 I know he thinks you're crying 
                 Am7
'Cause it's the happiest you've ever known 
G#dim7
 But girl you'd just be lying 
         Am7    G/B      C
'Cause what he doesn't know 
          Dm7                Em7'
You're strong for me, you belong to me 
     D7                                    F/G
And here's the one last chance for you to go
