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

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

     That you wish they could be
                              F/G
     Even though you're with him

'Cause it's the happiest you've ever known 
G#dim7
 But girl you'd just be lying

You're strong for me, you belong to me

Verse 1
  Asus2
Thinking back in time 
         F#m11
Someone said that love was blind 
                Bm11
But they were wrong 

           Dm9          Fmaj9b5/G
You just choose to not see 
           Asus2
When it's right before your eyes 
       F#m11                            Bm11
You'd rather compromise, then give your all 

                            Dm9                  Fmaj9b5/G                           
Then it don't turn out the way it's supposed to be 
                C#m7          C#m7b5           F#sus4
Time and time again you disappoint when she believes 
      Bm11             F7b5              E7sus4 
Just do your best and give her what she needs 

     Chorus
                      Asus2
     And cherish her love 
                     F#m11
     Show her she's right where she belongs 
                       Bm11
     Take care of her heart 
                   Dm9 Fmaj9b5/G
     Before she's gone 
                  Asus2
     Cherish her love 

Verse 2
             Asus2
It might be hard to conceive 
                   F#m11               
You gotta see the forest despite the trees 
               Bm11
Before it all burns down 
 
                 Dm9                   Fmaj9b5/G
Not telling you nothing you don't know 
            Asus2
But she'll let you have your fun 
            F#m11                                    Bm11        
But when a woman's done she's done, and then she'll go 

                  Dm9             Fmaj9b5/G
Just when you're needing her the most 
                C#m7          C#m7b5            F#sus4
Time and time again you disappoint, when she believes 
   Bm11             F7b5              E7sus4  
Do all you can, do give her what she needs 

     Chorus
     F#m11--G#m7#5     Asus2
      And cherish her love   
                     F#m11
     Show her she's right where she belongs   
                       Bm11
     Take care of her heart   
                   Dm9         Fmaj9b5/G
     Before she's gone (she's gone)  
                  Asus2
     Cherish her love  

Bridge
            G#m11          Bdim/C#
And if you care about the weather 
          F#m11
Keep her safe and warm 
     Bm11                             E7sus4 E
Let nothing in between stand in your way 
               G#m11          Bdim/C# F#m11        B9     
They say it's calm inside the eye     of the storm 
   Bm11                           E7sus4 
Together come whatever come what may
