Intro: 
G - E - C - G


G                              D          
I'm not the sort of person who falls
Em                    C
In and quickly out of love
       G                D
But to you I gave my affection 
               C    C-G-Am-G 
Right from the start



G                   D          
I have a lover, who loves me
Em                    C
How could I break such a heart
       G                D         - C – G 
Yet still you get my attention
G               Em             C                       G
Why do you come here, when you know I've got trouble enough
                Em           C                       G
Why do you call me, when you know I can't answer the phone
        D                 C
Make me lie, when I don't want to
                 D                               C
And make someone else, some kind of an unknowing fool
            D           C
You make me stay when I should not
           D                                G
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me
                Em        C                          G
Why do you come here, and pretend to be just passing by
               D   C   D – G 
When I mean to see you  
               D   C   D  G D  G
and I mean to hold you    tightly


Em – C – G 

        G       D          
Feeling guilty, worried
Em                    C
Waking from tormented sleep
     G               D                            C   -  G 
This old love has me bound, but the new love cuts deep
     G                D          
If I choose now, I'll lose out
Em                C
One of you has to fall
           G        D    C - G 
And I need you, and you
G               Em             C                       G
Why do you come here, when you know I've got trouble enough
                Em           C                       G
Why do you call me, when you know I can't answer the phone
        D                 C
Make me lie, when I don't want to
                 D                               C
And make someone else, some kind of an unknowing fool
            D           C
You make me stay when I should not
           D                                G
Are you so strong or is all the weakness in me
                Em        C                          G
Why do you come here, and pretend to be just passing by
               D   C   D – G 
When I mean to see you  
               D   C    D  G D  G
and I mean to hold you    tightly


Em – C – G
